Spring Training 2016

springtrainingHit it out of the park with Discovery Education’s Spring Training. Bring new instructional ideas into your everyday practice with this series of exercises to use with Discovery Education.

We all need a little workout every now and again to hone our skills and develop our practice, and that’s what Discovery Education’s Spring Training is all about. You’re invited to participate in this weekly challenge for the next five weeks, where you will be given a new instructional strategy to practice and discover ways to use Discovery Education to be an ace pitcher in the classroom.

Start Conditioning:

1. Sign up to receive your weekly challenge here.  You can join Spring Training anytime throughout the challenge.

2. Each Wednesday during Spring Training, you will receive your training plan. You can also come back here (links.discoveryeducation.com/springtraining) for a replay of all the challenges.

3. Participate in each of the exercises, and hit a homerun with your students. You’ll also be eligible for a chance to win a nifty Discovery Education baseball cap.
