Each of the four segments of the Facilitating Student-Led Discussions series provides a 30-minute standalone session appropriate for K-12 professional development in all subjects/contents during faculty meetings, before or after school, or during teacher planning time. Following each 30-minute segment, teachers and instructional leaders can work collaboratively to implement the ideas and strategies in their classrooms and schools. Although Part 3 provides a kindergarten example and Part 4 a high school example, all teachers may wish to view both to see the learning progression that characterizes CCGPS.
