4 Sessions ... This half-day session is offered to LICEE district curriculum and instruction and building level administrators. It is suggested you register for all 4 sessions.

Session 1 of 4 ..."Reimagining Our Schools for an Unimaginable Future: Liberating Each and Every Learner and Learning”

Well beyond this current crisis, we must ask how we will meet the needs of five-year-olds entering school in 2020 who will only be 85 in 2100?
What about the 2021 high school graduate who as an adult will enter our VUCA (volatile, unpredictable, complex, and ambiguous) world?

While we are focused on survival actions for now, what we learn can help us develop sustainable actions that create deeper learning, active engagement, and equity for learners whose lives will have more to do with 2100 than 2000. Beginning with the question, "What do we want our children to be?”, we will work with you to ask unasked questions that trap both teachers and students in structures created for the world of 100 years ago. As we explore what's possible, we will deepen your expertise in using Seven Toolbelt Strategies for Leaders: ...Know the Learners
...Know the Future
...Learn the Pivot
...Become Zero-Based Designers
...Use Protocols to engage Key Stakeholders
...Apply Logic to Create Contagious Creativity
... Seek Out New Strategy

Presented by - Dr. Pam Moran and Ira Sokol - help educational leaders and educators take steps to build impactful innovations in student learning and equity portfolios. They focus on proven transformational change strategies - the why, the how, and the paths to maximize opportunities for every learner to develop competencies for life, not just to pass tests in school.

Attendees will receive a Zoom link on the morning of the workshop. Please use your district email and information when logging into Zoom.

What changes or stays the same when students engage with virtual manipulatives alongside or in place of concrete ones? What are the opportunities and limitations? Explore these ideas using free virtual manipulatives. This workshop will primarily focus on grades 7 through Algebra 1.

Be sure to be on a desktop/laptop/tablet/ipad for this workshop, NOT A PHONE. To get the most out of this workshop, you need to be on a device with a screen large enough so that you can move around the free, online manipulatives and try them out just like your students would.

Dates: 12/11/2020

There is no such thing as "bad readers”; there are only a "trained readers” and "untrained readers”. Reading is a skill just like any other; one that can be strengthened and sharpened over time with practice.

During this workshop you will learn how to read with greater speed and ease. With the right techniques, you can double or triple your reading speed without sacrificing comprehension.

The ability to quickly read is life changing. Imagine how much more you can learn as a speed reader, for example,
Teachers: being able to digest all the best books on teaching practices or having to spend less time reading lengthy student essays
Administrators: being able to digest all the best books on school leadership, your never-ending email inbox, State Ed documents and guidelines with ease.
Your students, building, staff and district will reap the benefits of your learning how to speed read and you will gain time… time you can spend reading and learning even more.

For this workshop please have the following materials:

1) a light fiction book that you have never read before - you will be practicing using this book so make sure it has plenty of pages of text.
2) Post it notes or tabs that you will use to mark your start and end words in the text.

Program: Curriculum & Instruction: Regional PD

Number sense serves as the foundation for deep understanding and success in math.

These students have an ability to work outside of the traditionally taught algorithms to come up with clever solutions. So the question is… how do we cultivate number sense and math reasoning in students?
This workshop will introduce you to activities you can incorporate into your existing math curriculum to support maturation of number sense in students. You will leave this workshop with 50+ activities you can immediately implement.
The content of this workshop is primarily geared towards grades 6-8 (meaning the 50+ shared activities will feature middle school math content), but the routines are applicable to ALL grade levels, after adjusting the math content.

90. ***Virtual PD***Leveraging daily routines to Cultivate Number Sense and Math Reasoning in Students

Program: Curriculum & Instruction: Regional PD

Audience: K-12 math teachers and supervisors

Dates: 1/6/2021

Location: Online

Number sense serves as the foundation for deep understanding and success in math. When students have number sense, they have an intuitive understanding of numbers, their magnitude, relationships, and how numbers are affected by operations. These students have an ability to work outside of the traditionally taught algorithms to come up with clever solutions. So the question is… how do we cultivate number sense and math reasoning in students?
This workshop will introduce you to activities you can incorporate into your existing math curriculum to support maturation of number sense in students. You will leave this workshop with 50+ activities you can immediately implement.
The content of this workshop is primarily geared towards grades 6-8 (meaning the 50+ shared activities will feature middle school math content), but the routines are applicable to ALL grade levels, after adjusting the math content.

Session 3 of 4 ..."Reimagining Our Schools for an Unimaginable Future: Liberating Each and Every Learner and Learning”

Well beyond this current crisis, we must ask how we will meet the needs of five-year-olds entering school in 2020 who will only be 85 in 2100?
What about the 2021 high school graduate who as an adult will enter our VUCA (volatile, unpredictable, complex, and ambiguous) world?

While we are focused on survival actions for now, what we learn can help us develop sustainable actions that create deeper learning, active engagement, and equity for learners whose lives will have more to do with 2100 than 2000. Beginning with the question, "What do we want our children to be?”, we will work with you to ask unasked questions that trap both teachers and students in structures created for the world of 100 years ago. As we explore what's possible, we will deepen your expertise in using Seven Toolbelt Strategies for Leaders: ...Know the Learners
...Know the Future
...Learn the Pivot
...Become Zero-Based Designers
...Use Protocols to engage Key Stakeholders
...Apply Logic to Create Contagious Creativity
... Seek Out New Strategy

Presented by - Dr. Pam Moran and Ira Sokol - help educational leaders and educators take steps to build impactful innovations in student learning and equity portfolios. They focus on proven transformational change strategies - the why, the how, and the paths to maximize opportunities for every learner to develop competencies for life, not just to pass tests in school.

Attendees will receive a Zoom link on the morning of the workshop. Please use your district email and information when logging into Zoom.
