Some of our most popular sessions in 2018

Guided Reading that Works: Success Strategies for Struggling Readers

with Michele Dufresne, Reading specialist, Title I Director, and Reading Recovery Teacher Leader

If you have struggling readers in your classroom, then this session is for you! This workshop will support you in knowing what’s important for your at-risk readers, and why! You will be introduced to intervention models that get strong results, and gain an understanding of how classroom teachers and interventionists can work in tandem to ensure all kids become strong and confident readers.

Conferring: The Heart of the Personalized Classroom

with Cris Tovani, Consultant with the Tovani Group

Has anyone ever asked you, “Are you up for a challenge?” This is just one of the many questions Cris uses to confer with her students. They always say yes.

To reach all students, we must know them well. Conferring is a key instructional practice that allows us to connect to students. In this time we can also connect learners to texts, problems, content, as well as surface questions, confusions, and pertinent teaching points. Join Cris to unpack this instructional practice and plan more meaningful conversations with students by learning to switch questioning around.

Creating a Powerful Mathematics Learning Community: Strategies Within and Beyond the Classroom

with Dr. Mark Ellis, Professor at CSU Fullerton

Teachers will explore strategies for creating a mathematics learning community that supports student face-to-face and virtual collaboration, builds on students’ sense of identity, and leverages family and community connections to spark student engagement. We will reflect on the important qualities of a mathematics learning community, examine examples from other teachers of ways they have tried to build community, and brainstorm strategies to use in our own classrooms. Teachers will leave with a stronger vision of the sort of mathematical learning community they want to create among their students and a set of strategies with which to set about moving from vision to reality.

Teaching Students to Self-Regulate: Tools, Strategies & Activities to Equip Teachers

with Jenna Kitamura, Instructional Coach/ECC, Special Services, Evergreen Public Schools

Participants will learn to use a variety of classroom tools, visuals, activities and projects to teach students emotional self-regulation and problem solving including songs, rhymes, and short activities that can be embedded into daily classroom routines. Workshop time will be devoted to personalizing a plan that will work for you and your specific student population.

That Doesn’t Look Like an Assessment

with Tavia Clark, EdTech TOSA at Evergreen Public Schools

Assessment is more than multiple choice, short answer, and fill in the blank. It is actually possible to engage students and get the assessment data you need. This session will explore alternatives to traditional assessment activities that you can implement in your classrooms tomorrow.

Differentiating Instruction in the Inclusive Classroom: Strategies for Success

with Monica Stonier, Instructional Coach at Evergreen Public Schools

This workshop focuses on the book Differentiating Instruction in the Inclusive Classroom: Strategies for Success. “All teachers today need to be able to differentiate instruction, using strategies that address students’ strengths, interests, skills, and readiness for learning, in a flexible classroom environment.”

As teachers, we may be approximating, learning about, or successfully using inclusion strategies (universal design for learning, multiple intelligence theory, and findings from brain research), and we often struggle to fully explain our instructional decisions. This workshop offers entry points for all teachers in learning more about inclusion strategies, but also be able to articulate our practice so we can communicate better to students, parents and in our professional teams.

Restorative Practices

with Jessica Andrews and Laura Wheaton-Evans, Clinical Psychologists at Evergreen Public Schools

Come learn about the basics of Restorative Practices during this session! Restorative Practices has been shown to improve school climate and culture, increase the amount of time students are in the classroom, and reduces the number of student referrals, suspensions, and expulsions. All staff are encouraged to attend this opportunity to learn more about Restorative Practices and how this model can be implemented in your buildings and with your students.

Infusing Character and Social Emotional Learning into the Daily Fabric of your School

with John Norlin, Character Strong Co-Founder

If all we do is focus on end of the year test scores, we are only giving kids half of what they need to be successful. Research shows that you don’t have to provide sixty minutes per day of social emotional learning and character development to positively impact students. This workshop will show you a system for infusing strong character and social emotional skills into the day to day fabric of your school. This resource packed workshop will show you an intentional way to take your school to the next level when it comes to climate and culture, while also connecting the dots on how to strengthen your multi tiered system of support for behavior in your school.

Principles of Inquiry Based Learning

with Jaime Casap, Global Education Evangelist for Google

For schools to truly be successful, they must first create a school culture that values the naturally inquisitive nature of their students. Schools need a framework and curriculum that allows students to explore what is relevant to them, all the while mastering the skills needed to thrive in academic environments and beyond. In an Inquiry School, no student ever asks, “why do we need to learn this?” because they set their own path towards acquiring knowledge. In this session we will review the principles of inquiry based learning and discuss strategies and actions to bring it to live in your classroom. We will start with the most essential question, “why does our learning matter?”

Harry Potter and The Rolling Round Robot - How To Harness the Power of Coding and Robotics for Literacy Instruction!

with Jennifer LaGarde, Consultant

Think robotics and coding are just for science and math class? Well, think again! In this session, we’re going to roll up our sleeves, write some code, and program spheros, ozobots, and drones (oh my!) to dig into one of our students’ (and teachers’!) most beloved texts: Harry Potter! Wear your Potter gear, if you are so inclined, and get ready to be sorted into a house and use these tech tools to gain a deeper, more meaningful understanding of the text. Mischief Managed!

The Seven Biggest Lies that Keep Teachers from Implementing Project-Based Learning

with John Spencer, Author and Professor at George Fox University

In this session we will review the principles of inquiry based learning and discuss strategies and actions to bring it to live in your classroom.
