Plan Like a Pirate (#PlanLAP) Twitter Workshops

FREE Plan Like a Pirate PD Every Single Month!

Be prepared to engage in a unique and powerful professional development experience that will help transform your teaching career and catapult you and your classroom to greatness!

How can I participate in the #PlanLAP Monthlong Twitter Workshop?

On the first Sunday of every month, the #PlanLAP Twitter PLC will begin a deep dive into a chosen topic in education. Each week a connected question, video, resource, blog post, or pondering will be posted so that participants can respond throughout the week, always using the #PlanLAP hashtag, of course! 

For three additional Sundays, new related questions or materials will be shared so participants can continue to engage with the monthly topic on a deeper level. At the end of the month, participants will have the opportunity to fill out a reflection form about their experience and may be issued professional development CEUs, if they choose to complete a reflection.

What is the structure of the #PlanLAP Monthlong Workshop?

Questions and materials will be shared/posted from @DHarrisEdS and further questions and comments can be posed by the facilitator or other participants to encourage critical thinking or personal and professional growth.

Week 1: Think It

Week 2: Plan It

Week 3: Do It
