  • 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

    Program: Office of School Improvement - CTLE Approved Sponsor

    Audience: All K-12 teachers concerned with teaching conventions (particularly helpful to special education teachers and teachers of English Language Learners and Multilingual Language Learners)

    Dates: 4/10/2019

    Kids don’t seem to punctuate much these days. And even when they do, they don’t have a practical understanding of how the conventions of writing work. This stuff is hard to teach, too, and we never have enough time for it. But there are solutions: covering conventions in reading, combining conventions instructions with the teaching of sentence structure and paragraphing, giving kids the tools they need to find and fix their own errors, a structured edit pass approach that improves kids’ accuracy and accountability—and saves teachers time. In this workshop, participants will experience classroom-proven and engaging techniques like “Conventions Reading,” “Unruly Rule-Making,” “Conventions Inquiry,” “Sentence Pattern Practice,” and others. This workshop is for all K-12 teachers concerned with teaching conventions and may be particularly helpful to special education teachers and teachers of English Language Learners and Multilingual Language Learners.

    32. WRITE SHORT, LEARN LONG: The Solution to Packing More Writing Instruction into Less Time

    Program: Office of School Improvement - CTLE Approved Sponsor

    Audience: all K-12 teachers concerned with increasing students’ writing practice and may be particularly helpful to secondary teachers, including teachers of science, social studies, math, and other subjects.

    Dates: 4/11/2019

    Writing is hard to learn and hard to teach. Kids need more practice. Teachers need more time. Since time is a fixed resource, and there’s never enough, what do we do? We publish more short pieces! Instead of giving kids minimum word or page count requirements, do the opposite: give low maximum word and page counts. Creating 100- to 400-word pieces takes less time, incentivizes revision and editing, and reduces teacher workload for assessment, correction, and response. Most importantly, it increases the number of exposures kids get to the types and techniques of writing they need to master. In this workshop, we introduce the idea of writing more shorter pieces, review one in each of the four most common modes, and share the most important pre-writing, drafting, revision, and editing strategies. Participants use the methods during the workshop to produce their own texts they can use as models in their own classrooms. This workshop is for all K-12 teachers concerned with increasing students’ writing practice and may be particularly helpful to secondary teachers, including teachers of science, social studies, math, and other subjects.
