I have found M2020 to be one of the best professional developmental experiences of my career. The curriculum and content of this program led to significant, and most importantly, immediate results within my classroom. Especially for students who struggled with traditional methods. I firmly believe that this program has made me a better and more effective teacher.
The MADE program was the best professional development I have ever had. Not only did I learn a wide variety of techniques and tools needed for a blended classroom, I also learned how to successfully implement them. The MISD consultants truly cared about meeting the needs of all participants. Take this class; You WON'T regret it.
If your goal is to teach the 21st Century learner, Macomb2020/MADE will help you do just that! This program will enhance your teaching abilities and provide you with skills to teach in an innovative way that will definitely increase the student motivation factor in your class! Definitely worth the time and effort!
