Here's the Scoop:
  1. We will meet every Friday for the first 30 minutes of EVERY period.  The conference room is our tentative meeting location.  Bring your laptop!
  2. After the 30 minute session, you will spend about one hour creating a finished example (1.5 total hours per session).
  3. You can choose 15, 30, or 45 hours of lane change credit.  15 hours = 10 sessions.  30 hours = 20 sessions. 45 hours = 30 sessions.
  4. All sessions will be available online.  You can make up missed sessions at your convenience.
  5. Everyone is invited (teachers, administrators, staff, etc.).
