If you notice on the Thinking Maps Schedule, the Tree & Brace Maps are introduced on Wednesday - Oct. 1 & Oct. 8. The Tuesday before each of those days include a field trip for sophomores and grades being due. The trainers didn't want to schedule a roll out on those days. An announcement will be made the day before they are going to be introduced. Remember to teach the vocabulary associated with each map. The handouts you will need are on this website under the tab, "Useful Handouts".
