Teachers Megan Habowski, Michele Petro and Michelle Faust engage in a brainstorming activity entitled "roping around." The activity called for the teachers to detach themselves from each other without cutting the rope or removing it from their wrists.This was one of the many activities held during the August 21st in-service workshop which allowed the professional staff to work collaboratively while reflecting on the question, "What is effective instruction?" The teachers also had an opportunity to examine their own teaching styles. The daylong program facilitated by author and college professor, Franny McAleer, was well-received by SCA's faculty.
