Chap Connection is an outreach effort hosted by the Lubbock Christian University School of Education for LCU graduates who are new teachers in the field. If you have been teaching three years or less and need some support, here is your opportunity to refresh, retool, and reunite! We will provide you with 6 hours of professional development credit as you participate in sessions that cover a host of topics relevant to K-12 teachers such as classroom management, assessment, managing diverse learners, and more. You'll leave with new strategies and ideas that you can implement in your classroom, while gaining strength and encouragement from your colleagues and friends.
Included in the events will be book discussions, book signings, and plenary sessions by nationally recognized educators.
Sessions will include a time to share ideas. If you have a management tip, strategy, lesson, or something that worked well for you in the classroom, we'd love for you to share with the rest of the group! Secondary teachers send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org and elementary teachers send your ideas to Annette.email@example.com.
Chap Connection is usually associated with LCU Family Weekend including dinner on Friday. It continues on Saturday morning, ending by mid-afternoon in the LCU School of Education building. Meals and snacks will be provided along with a host of door prizes!
The cost is about $20.00 per person and covers the cost of meals and materials.
