Professional Development Plan
To give a
sense of the upcoming NC-PIMS Facilitator activities in 2006-2007, the Project
Director is providing this brief Professional Development plan touching on what’s
consists of the work assignments of three teams of NC-PIMS Facilitators and
covers the period from December 2006 through July 31, 2007. Some details of the plan may be subject to

will be teamed with a K-5 Regional Lead Teacher. Workshop offerings will begin June 26-28 and
will end July 24-26. The first Workshop
offering will be used as a training session for K-5 Regional Lead Teachers who
will be assisting in the offering to K-5 Lead Teachers.

Number and Operation during two weeks in the summer. The first week, June 18-22, 1-2 Regional Lead
Teachers will offer each workshop to the Workshop Development Team (those
Facilitators with prior experience in offering the workshop). On the last day of the first week, the
Development Team will separate into two working groups: An Algebra Group, chaired by Kathy Harris,
and a Reading Group, chaired by Alice Brown.
After a gap of several weeks in which there will be assigned readings
and tasks, the two groups will meet for a week to complete the development

Teachers (a new concept for NC-PIMS)
will be invited to serve in a special role to work with Facilitators in this
phase of the development of workshops.
