Program: School Improvement

Audience: Grades K-12 Teachers, Teacher Leaders, Instructional Coaches, and Administrators

Dates: 2/11/2021

Have you had students struggle to remember what was taught the previous year, semester, or even the last month? Have you had students internalize failure, thinking they won't succeed because they're "not smart"? There are reasons, researched reasons why this happens. Patrice Bain, a veteran teacher and co-author of Powerful Teaching: Unleash the Science of Learning, knows the rigor required for the classroom. Having worked with cognitive scientists for over fifteen years, Bain developed teaching strategies based on robust research that improve learning. Best of all, these strategies don't add to teachers' already filled plates but will streamline what they are already doing. In this engaging and interactive workshop, Patrice Bain will unlock the research and provide evidence-based strategies that will transform your teaching so that all students will be successful learners.

In this workshop, educators will:

Learn the research behind: Retrieval, Spacing, Interleaving, and Feedback-driven Metacognition

Understand how cognitive load, working memory, and desirable difficulties play a role in learning

Discern learning "myths" vs. "truths"

Grasp how simple changes to what they are already doing will increase student learning

Leave the workshop with a repertoire of tools and strategies that can be used the following day

Program: School Improvement

Audience: Administrators

Dates: 2/17/2021

Leadership is a calling, and now, more than ever, we need strong leaders who strive to relentlessly focus on students. In an effort to achieve this end, "the National Policy Board for Educational Administration [...] adopted (2015) the Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (PSEL), a set of guidelines for the training, certification, hiring, evaluation, and supervision of school principals and superintendents" (Murphy, Seashore Louis, and Smylie, 2017). This workshop will provide participants the opportunity to take a deep dive into the Professional Standards for Educational Leaders with a focus on the link between educational leadership and student learning. Participants will understand what's new about these standards and understand how to enact them in their daily professional practice.

60. Developing Number Sense

Program: School Improvement

Audience: Grades K-8 Math Teachers, Interventionists, and Teacher Leaders

Dates: 2/24/2021

We would all agree that if students had a stronger sense of numbers, it would elevate their ability to solve non-routine problems. Developing number sense includes understanding numbers and their magnitude and how they relate to one another. It includes having the ability to work with numbers flexibly instead of clinging to formal procedures while trying to memorize methods and number facts. Number Talks are an excellent routine that will help build number sense and students' confidence in the math classroom. Number Talks will bring students to the edge of their seat, eager to share their math reasoning with others. They're fun, engaging, and they build deeper conceptual understanding. Come learn how to implement Number Talks in the classroom along with other engaging strategies that will help build students' number sense.

62. Self-Paced Course: Citizens of the Classroom: The Role of Teachers and Students in a Math Classroom

Program: School Improvement

Audience: Grades K-12 Teachers, Interventionists, Instructional Coaches, Teacher Leaders and Administrators

Dates: 3/1/2021

Self Paced Course
Students want help and teachers want to help them. This action and reaction is natural, but this "didactic contract" between teacher and student can be detrimental to deep thought and understanding in the classroom. The role of the teacher is to create a community of learners who can tackle and solve problems together and independently. Instructors should lead students toward deeper cognitive understanding. Participants will investigate meaningful student engagement and learn about appropriate and effective levels of student struggle. The work of James Nottingham and The Learning Challenge (2017) will serve as a resource for learning. We will also focus on ways to bring the Standards for Mathematical Practice and NCTM's Effective Teaching Practices to life inside the classroom.

Participants must register for one of the course sessions (before the launch date) and will receive a link to the self-paced course platform prior to the launch date.

This self-paced course will explore the reading comprehension portion of The Simple View of Reading (Gough & Tunmer, 1986). The Simple View of Reading is a foundational conceptual model every teacher should know how to apply in their classroom. Reading comprehension is the act of understanding and interpreting information within a text. It results from efficient decoding and the ability to understand language. This self-paced course will allow participants to explore the traits of a skilled comprehender, the role of fluency, the importance of background knowledge, and the role of memory.
