Make the Connection-
Strengthening Constructed Response Writing with Connections and Context 

Presenter:  Carrie Rosebrock
 

If you’ve ever wanted to scream (or cry) after grading a stack of your students’ constructed response writings…you are not alone! So many of us are struggling with how to help our students say something meaningful about what they’ve read. We’ve tried all the acronyms and anchor charts, but something still seems to be missing.  Student responses are surface level, weak, and choppy. If you’re feeling discouraged–there is some good news: 1. You are not alone and 2. There is hope! Join Carrie Rosebrock, author, district alignment coach, and former middle school English teacher, as she models tangible reading and writing strategies that help our students read critically so that they can transfer their thoughts into writing. Teachers will gain tangible mini-lessons, as well as model examples, that they can use the next day with their students.

Successful PLC Strategies for High School

Presenter:  Carrie Rosebrock and Sarah Henry

For too long, PLC work has seemed to focus on structures that work for elementary and middle schools, while unique aspects of the high school structure are pushed aside or not addressed. Professional Learning Communities are all about people, not programs. When teachers come together in structured systems of collaboration to reflect on student learning and growth, amazing professional development occurs as well. And, learning at the high school level does present its own unique challenges and celebrations. Join us in this session where we break down how the core elements of effective PLCs can (and should!) function in various high school PLCs.

This session is applicable for both small and large high schools, teachers, teacher leaders, and administrators.

Cheers to the Curious

Presenter:Colette Huxford-Kinnett

Trauma Informed Practices
Register by October 12, 2022
Virtual


As teachers, we often feel ill-equipped to meet the
wide variety of needs our students bring with them to
our classroom every day. Research shows that 46%
of students under 17 have experienced a traumatic
event and that trauma can alter the development of
the brain and affect student learning, behavior, and
emotional regulation. When we infuse trauma-
informed practices in our classroom, we can cultivate
a supportive and trusting environment where our
students are motivated to learn, demonstrate grit and
nurture a resilient mindset. In this workshop you will
receive strategies you need to face these
challenges and improve your students’ overall
well-being

Jim will introduce a ground-breaking Curriculum, The Writers' Workshop Wayfarer Challenge.  Writing instructions from Kestner's more than 30 years of experience as a dynamic speaker brings workshop participants a series of videos and weblinks that teach writing skills, freeing teachers to spend time focused on students' individual needs.  Featuring video vignettes and the option of an incentive-based, game-like interface, middle and high school English teachers will discover how to harness the power of avatars and individual-based skill progression to shatter barriers and generate excitement in students as they gain ever greater writing proficiency along a virtual expedition to climb Mt. Everest.  Every participant receives a free Writers' Workshop Wayfarer Challenge curriculum and implementation guide!

Effective Classroom Management
Register by October 27, 2022
Virtual


As teachers, we-re expected to provide rigorous
differentiated instruction, social-emotional support,
and behavior management among students with
varying needs and abilities. The challenge we face
while playing each of these roles can often lead to
feelings of overwhelm and burnout. But what if we
reframed these roles as opportunities to support
academic success rather than a distraction from it?
Classroom management is a carefully and
intentionally chosen set of routines, procedures, and
expectations for behavior in your classroom. In this
workshop, we show you how to construct a
management system that champions positive
classroom relationships and academic success for
your students.

Empowering Students to Realize their Academic Potential 
 
Presenter: Jim Kestner

We all teach students with wide ranging ability. And while we focus much attention on differences, a characteristic many students share is falling short of their academic potential.  Nationally recognized for his work with educators and students, Jim Kestner takes a fun and creative approach that equips teachers to empower students by 1) Recognizing the reasons behind student's lack of performance  and 2) Applying strategies that not only improve achievement, but also count the factors that have stood in students' paths so far.  Research-based approaches will help teachers empower students to become more self-directed learners who set goals, improve study skills, maximize retention from textbook reading, take effective notes, manage time, organize for success, become better test takers, balance sports, activities, and academics and tackle large long-term projects.

Trauma-Informed Practices Part 1
4.5 hours

 

In this workshop, you’ll truly understand what your most vulnerable students need.  You’ll learn how these struggling learners’ brains work and how to create a classroom environment that is sensitive to the needs of all students, regardless of background.  46% of students under 7 have experienced a traumatic event.  26% of children under 4 have experienced a traumatic event.  As educators, we care immensely about our students beyond the classroom.  We worry about their safety and well-being once they walk out our doors.  Students entering the classroom with emotional, behavioral, or mental health issues are often at a disadvantage and struggle to keep up with the demands of traditional learning.  Brains affected by trauma require a different kind of instruction – and a special kind of care. 

We will cover the following:

  1. The impact of stress and trauma on learning

  2. How to build a resilient classroom

  3. Creating gritty learners

  4. Neuroscience and brain-based learning strategies

  5. Dealing with students from Traumatic backgrounds

  6. Trauma in Teacher – Fighting burnout with self-care

Trauma-Informed Practices Part 2

In the Trauma Level 1 training, we dove deep into brain research and understood how trauma affects the brain, which then affects behaviors.  Then we equipped you with some essential tools to help your get started.  Now, we want to give you new specific brain-based intervention strategies to give you the fools to lessen the negative impact of trauma in the brain and restore your classroom and school.  This workshop gives educators and schools an action plan to prioritize the personal well-being of students to promote their academic success and achievement.  When your students enter your classroom, they bring with them their hopes, dreams, worries and traumas.  Childhood trauma greatly impacts your students’ ability to learn and engage in the classroom.  By implementing trauma-informed practices through a classroom and school-wide approach, you can provide your students with the tools they need to thrive, achieve and succeed. Through exploration of research, collaboration with peers, and hands-on practice with classroom strategies, educators and administrators will gain in-depth understanding of trauma-informed care at school.  Our training guides schools through such topics as social and emotional learning as a curriculum, positive behavior interventions, daily mindfulness practice in the classroom and strategies to model emotional and self-regulation skills.

Increase Engagement with Cooperative Learning Strategies In the Mathematic Classroom
 
Presenter:  Bill Reed

 

It is important to get students to collaborate and not learn mathematics in isolation. By understanding, learning and practicing Cooperative Learning methods and techniques in the math classroom teachers can engage students.  Teachers will experience the use of various Cooperative Learning techniques and strategies that will help engage and get ALL students to be actively involved in learning.  Cooperative Learning allows teachers to easily differentiate their classroom so both high ability and students with special needs can participate and increase their retention and achievement for the subject they are learning.  Cooperative Learning has been proven to help students with better on-task behavior, better attitudes toward both the teacher and the subject they are learning, and overall have a more positive attitude toward learning and understanding.  Teachers will create a plan to incorporate Cooperative Learning techniques and strategies they can use in the classroom for the subject they teaching.

Playing Fact Fluency Games
 
Presenter:  Ryan Flessner
 

Participants in this session will learn a variety of games to help students learn their basic math facts. Although, traditionally, these games are taught with paper gameboards and physical materials (dice, two color counters, playing cards, etc.), participants will learn to transfer these games to digital environments. In doing so, kids can play games together as they sit 6 feet apart, from across the classroom, or from home after they leave our classrooms. We'll discuss ways that the pandemic has shifted our thinking in relation to online spaces and the benefits of technology in teaching fact fluency games.

Social media, girls, cars, jobs, video games, how can we compete? We frequently think that boys do not like to read.

Whoa, That is Deep: Curiosity, Primary Sources, Literacy and Depth of Knowledge 
 
Presenter:  Colleen Huxford-Kinnett

 

Getting students to think deeply and critically is a challenge.                             What if we could find a way to help students build these crucial                           skills without their even realizing what we are doing.  Could                                   capturing curiosity be a key?  See how simple a 3-step process of                         evaluating primary sources does just that, and just might spark

your creativity about how to use this process with other things

and in other ways.  Along the way, we are also encouraging

literacy, visual literacy in particular.  Learn where to fine primary

sources, how to use them, and how to get students to engage.      

Come explore ways to connect Young Adult literature to primary

sources, to support ELA standards, to bolster higher-order

thinking skills and to revie some of those forgotten and

overlooked titles on our shelves.
