Franklin County Educator Teaches Educators at State Workshop

A Franklin County educator was among those from across the state who recently attended and taught at a seminar in Clarkesville on how to make students more successful in the classroom.

Recently, North Georgia Technical College hosted the seminar for more than 50 college and K-12 teachers that focused on new methods for teaching in small groups as well as strategies for redesigning course curriculum.

North Georgia Tech was asked by the Technical College System of Georgia to facilitate workshops demonstrating the college’s new learning support course  to other teachers throughout the state. 

Funded in part by a grant from the Department of Labor,  presenters included local experts Dawn Osborne from the Franklin County School System, Marcia Williams and Susan Proctor from Pioneer RESA, and Laura Jenkins and Leslie McFarlin from North Georgia Tech.

Leslie McFarlin and Dawn Osborn demonstrated and modeled the technique of using station teaching and small group instruction in a learning support classroom in their segment entitled, “Essentials of teaching using small groups.” 

Marcia Williams and Susan Proctor from Pioneer RESA presented effective questioning and assessment techniques.
