On February 4th from 6:30pm – 8:00pm in the Madison Library, Principal, Dr. Gary, will discuss teacher professional development as well as advanced placement programs at Madison for next year.
Teachers and leaders at Madison Middle School have been engaged in year-long learning around differentiated instruction. The goal of the training is to create success for all learners.
The educators at Madison are consulting research and teaching guides on how to design and deliver instruction in academically diverse classrooms. Teachers are participating in workshops to experience differentiated instructional strategies, reflect on their own use of differentiated materials/lessons, and plan ahead to build those practices into the classrooms. The professional development is being provided by the Puget Sound Educational Service District.
