December #SCCHAT: Closing the Gap (12/3/13)
The next School Counselor Tweet Chat is on Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at 8pm EST.
The topic of the chat this month is Closing the Gap moderated by Jeremy Goldman (@MrJGoldman) a high school counselor and department chair at Pikesville High School in Maryland. He is also President-Elect of the Maryland School Counselor Association (@MSCAMd).
We will be chatting about how you can create purposeful programming at your school to close the achievement gap and other gaps that exist at your school. Resources and tools for data collection will be shared. This is an excellent topic and is instrumental in showing how school counselors make a difference in the lives of students!
I strongly encourage those new to twitter to come and join us and participate! Even if you just watch and read the tweets you will learn so much! I archive each chat so that even if you aren't available to participate live you can read the chat later.
We look forward to tweeting with you!
