IUSD will use Twitter to capture feedback on Curriculum Council’s homework discussion


As we mentioned last week, IUSD’s Curriculum Council plans to collect feedback via Twitter tomorrow morning during the first of two meetings designed to engage local stakeholders in a discussion about the role of homework.

The interactive session is a first for Irvine, and it even drew the attention of The Daily Pilot, which published a story over the weekend. (You can read the Pilot’s article here.)

For those who want to participate, tomorrow’s Curriculum Council meeting will be broadcast live on IUSD’s channel 39, beginning with a presentation from 8 to 9:30 a.m. that will share research and trends related to homework. Irvine teachers will take part in a panel discussion on the subject from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., followed by a parent discussion from 12:30 to 2 p.m.

Viewers may submit questions and comments at any time during the panel segments simply by following IUSD on Twitter and replying to tomorrow morning’s opening tweet about the Curriculum Council. Or, just send a tweet that includes “@iusd” and we’ll capture it.
