    Participants in this workshop will examine what can happen when we root writers in empathy, help them identify problems worth solving and opportunities worth taking in the world around them, and writing in order to make a difference. Join us as we put a careful eye on everything that the Next Generation ELA Standards affords writing teachers and the kids they love most--all of whom have the ability and now, the invitation, to leave a might mark on the world. Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in tech based coaching session with Angela about what they design on the October 16th session.

With the goals of the roadmap in mind, this group will examine the following this school year: -The newly developed tool, Guide for Aligning Local Curricula to the Next Generation ELA Standards, designed to facilitate local conversations around curriculum and classroom instruction. -Local assessment design and use (formative and summative) -Next Generation ELA Standards resources for parents -Early Learning Standards (new resources!)

    39. Student Engagement: Learning is Not a Spectator Sport

    Program: Office of School Improvement - CTLE Approved Sponsor

    Audience: Classroom teachers, teacher leaders

    Dates: 5/19/2020 to 5/20/2020

    What does it mean for learners to be truly engaged? Compliance? Answering teacher directed questions when called on? Following Directions? Or does it run deeper than that?
    Educators in these professional learning sessions will explore answers to those questions by:
  • assessing their current practices and developing a rationale for what they believe and value about student engagement
  • developing plans that build a culture/environment that supports positive student engagement
  • sharing their learning with others in this session about specific engagement strategies and protocols
  • designing lessons that embed engagement strategies including some that utilize instructional technology
    A variety of instructional technology and non-instructional technology driven engagement strategies will be modeled, analyzed and used by teachers for their planning of upcoming lessons and/or units of study. Participants will have time to plan a lesson or unit that embeds standards-aligned student engagement strategies. These plans will be implemented and student work samples brought back for analysis on day three.
