Program: Curriculum & Instruction: Regional PD

Dates: 1/26/2021

Location: ONLINE

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

Audience: Administrators

Dates: 2/4/2021

Location: Online

LICEE Members Only
4 Session Series
Session 1 of 4 ... 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: "Belonging and Dignity: The Hidden Keys to Equity Implementation in Your Schools and District”

Too often, equity implementation reinforces a vicious cycle of failure because the keys to success are missing and the purpose of the effort is muddled. This series will bring clarity to what equity is ultimately all about so we can more effectively bring equity alive through specific actions in our teaching, leading, or coaching practices.
To that end, participants will acquire an in-depth and pragmatic framework of dignity and belonging that they can use to guide successful equity implementation.

Participants will learn to use the Dignity Framework for Educational Equity as a solution to the common challenges all districts face when attempting to implement equity-diversity initiatives.

....Develop knowledge of dignity and belonging as concepts foundational to educational equity.
....Connect your own lived experiences to broader patterns of social inequity and exclusion.
....Identify four behavioral standards for dignity and the four indicators of belonging.
....Set goals for improving behaviors, practices, and policies to foster systemic change.

Presented by - John Krownapple, Trent Hall and Dr. Floyd Cobb

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

27. ***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: 2/9/2021

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.

Program: Curriculum & Instruction: Regional PD

Audience: Secondary Social Studies Teacher

Dates: 3/3/2021

The ERA of Reconstruction (1865-1877) is one of the most difficult time periods in American History to teach to students. U.S. History teacher talks about Jim Crow Law, the Black Codes, and the KKK. We teach about the newly granted freedom finally awarded to the slaves and how those rights are quickly stripped away by southern governments.

In this ONE HOUR workshop, however, we are going to look at the Era of Reconstruction in a new light. We will debate perhaps that the Era of Reconstruction was a time of significant progress in the U.S. and examine the role that heroes like Joseph Rainey, Hiram Revels and Robert Elliott played in shaping the country in the years following the Civil War. The information in this workshop is intended to turn the view of Reconstruction on its head and reveal this difficult time period in a new light.
