On Tuesday, February 24th, your professional learning session will pit Briarhill teacher teams against each other as they compete to win a scavenger hunt using the GooseChase app. The scavenger hunt's main focus will be on the 21st century skills and how you see them at work in classrooms all over campus. We've also thrown in some other scavenger hunt items as well to generate some laughs along the way.

Mr. Mattingly has offered up a pretty generous prize for the winning team -- He will treat the team to dinner! Other prizes will be awarded as well.

We think this will be a great day for you to think about: how you can incorporate 21st century skills into your lessons, how you might be able to use the GooseChase app with your students, and how collaboration can help students be more successful!   

This will be an "open-door" kind of day, with teachers entering classrooms to search for the 21st century skills in action! It will be a great opportunity to see the awesome things going on in other classes and departments!  

"Mission: Possible" will span the entire day, with team members participating during individual conference/planning periods. You will find your teams and teacher off-periods listed below. Feel free to come up with a team name and to coordinate costumes for the mission!
