  1. Welcome
    1. We had a lot of new folks today as well as a bunch of our regulars. For those who didn’t know, we are currently working on our Tier 2 lesson plans. They are geared toward students that are comfortable setting up a WordPress site and are ready to learn about how to use plugins and other methods of configuration. These lessons are for in-person events specifically.
  2. Lesson Plan Updates
    1. @epetrashen has written the following lessons, all of which are ready to be sent to copyediting:
  3. Copyediting Updates
    1. @skarjune will copyedit What is Open Source
    2. @c3zh will copyedit What is W3 Total Cache
    3. @bethsoderberg noted that we are a little off track as a group. She wrangled the progress of current copyediting items here:
    4. Steps to Get Back on Track
      • return to a 1-2 week turn around time as the expectation when someone takes on a lesson plan to copyedit
      • keep a running list in the meeting notes of what needs copyediting, who it has been assigned to, and who the authors of the plans are
      • keep the copyediting point in the meeting agenda
      • consider having copyeditor trainings once a quarter
  4. Testing Updates
    1. Talked about the post we have about testing feedback:
      1. @mindsize shared that the lessons in general are hard to understand the order of. Alphabetical is fine if you know the order already, but not intuitive if you’re looking for the progression there.
      2. @bethsoderberg shared this post which we’ve been using as a guide of sorts:
  5. Teacher Resources Page
    1. @chanthaboune and @epetrashen will come up with an outline for the teaching resource page

There is a thoughtful post about structural concerns with our p2 that @bethsoderberg@coachwp and @melindahelt had at a recent contributor day. Take a look and comment this week!
