For the Love of FACS

Exercise in FACSessorizing!


I was working on a presentation for a workshop at a summer FACS conference a couple of years ago when the word “FACSessorize” popped into my head.  The word so accurately expressed what I wanted to share with teachers, that it became the theme of the presentation.  I was delighted when the teachers in that workshop really  got excited about FACSessorizing their lessons!

I’ve presented the FACSessorize! presentation to several groups of teachers since that first workshop.  It’s so much fun to share my ideas for FACSessorizing a basic lesson plan while getting really good feedback from an audience of enthusiastic, dedicated FACS teachers.  We laugh, we sing and dance (Well, I sing and dance! LOL), we get a little silly sometimes, but that’s what makes a lesson memorable.  And that’s what FACSessorizing is all about!

So here’s my dilemma–I believe so wholeheartedly in FACSessorizing that I’m constantly looking for ways of getting FACS teachers excited about the concept.  Since I haven’t figured out a way to make it to every FACS teacher workshop around the country, (Podcast, maybe?) I’m turning to social media to share illustrations of FACSessorizing.   Turns out the month of March offers an incredible range of FACSessorizing opportunities and Pinterest and Facebook are the perfect ways to showcase examples that you can use in your classes right now!
