Thirty-seven from Bradley attend Statewide Reading Conference
In early October, 27 Bradley student teachers and 10 practicing teachers from Bradley’s eight professional development school (PDS) sites attended the 2015 Illinois Reading Council (IRC) Conference in Peoria. The 3-day, statewide conference was held at the Peoria Civic Center and Marriott Pere Marquette Hotel, less than two miles from Bradley’s campus.
Bradley PDS partnership continues to promote positive outcomes
The Bradley Professional Development Schools Partnership Stakeholder Survey, administered in May 2015, revealed that the percentage of teachers, administrators, professors, and Bradley students who believe the partnership has promoted positive outcomes continues to increase in all areas surveyed.
The Bradley PDS Council is currently accepting roundtable discussion presentation proposals for the 2016 Bradley PDS Partnership Spring Celebration, which will take place on Thursday, April 21, 2016 from 4:00-6:00 p.m. in Westlake Hall’s Owens Professional Development Center.
