Faculty at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan, have recently been awarded a grant that will help facilitate the use of RTTP at the High school level! Over the coming months, their consultant, Chris Jones, will gather and curate available teacher-created materials. When possible, we will make these materials available via the RTTP Consortium website High School page.
Christopher Jones is a veteran teacher certified in English Education, History, and French. He recently retired from Grand Rapids Public Museum High School where he taught ELA as part of a fully integrated ELA, SS, Science Grade 10 Core Team. He holds an M Ed in Educational Technology. He has presented papers at local, state, and national conferences on topics ranging from the practical integration of new technologies to how to organize and stage collaborative projects. He has training in game-based, place-based, and competency-based learning.
Mr. Jones and Dr. Anne Caillaud, Professor of French Language and Literature at GVSU, plan to facilitate a roundtable discussion at the RTTP Annual Institute at Barnard College June 8-11, 2023.
