Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts (Online Workshop)

Description:

When you and I were growing up, the words Trojans, worms, viruses and spam had considerably different meanings than they do today. We took a pole and went out fishing, but today we encounter phishing expeditions and electronic bait trying to hook us. We are victimized by spyware, adware, and malware of all types. These electronic parasites can be sucking your personal data and affecting the performance of your computer. This workshop will give you a better understanding of these dangers and introduce strategies on how you can deal with them.

Connecting Phonics First® to the Common Core (Online Version)

Description:

Connecting Phonics First® to the Common Core                           
Target Group: All teachers trained in the Phonics First® Foundations program.
Prerequisite:  Completion of Phonics First® Beginnings, Basic or Foundations Level I.

During the Connecting Phonics First® to the Common Core workshop, teachers look at the decoding and fluency-related standards of the common core and determine the Phonics First® instructional components that ensure success for beginning, struggling, at-risk, ELL and LD students.

DESCRIPTION:
The adoption of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) means schools must immediately and rapidly gear-up struggling readers. The demands of the CCSS' higher-level comprehension skills require students employ accurate decoding and fluent reading in order to be able to comprehend increasingly complex text. Consistent implementation of specific Phonics First® strategies in the classroom and intervention settings allows teachers to accurately target specific skill-deficits and to support and strengthen student decoding and fluency.

During the Connecting Phonics First® to the Common Core workshop, teachers look at the decoding and fluency-related standards of the common core and determine the Phonics First® instructional components that ensure success for beginning, struggling, at-risk, ELL and LD students. Teachers will then review and practice strategy implementation for classroom and small-group instruction at the prevention, intervention and remediation levels. Workshop will also include an introduction to Reciprocal  Teaching, a powerful tool for deepening comprehension through a process of clarifying, questioning, summarizing and predicting.

The framework identifies those aspects of a teacher’s responsibilities that have a positive impact on student learning. This full day session will provide an in-depth review of each Domain and participants will have an opportunity to practice using the model’s evaluation rubrics. Checklists and guidelines to facilitate the process during the observation cycle will be shared.

SGO 2.0-What Teachers Need to Know Today

Unpacking the Anchor Mathematics Standards for Teachers and Students, Elementary School Level

Description:

This is an exciting time to teach mathematics, with the recent evolution of mathematics education, forthcoming curricular changes, and technological innovations. Powerful mathematics instruction starts with high standards and classroom materials that meet those standards. The richest math learning environments have other important characteristics as well and in this workshop participants will learn “what counts” in mathematics instruction aimed at producing mathematical thinkers and problem solvers.

Learning Objectives/Content:
The Standards for Mathematical Practice are the heart and soul of the Common Core Standards for Mathematics. It is through these eight practices that students explore mathematics, build deeper understanding, develop reasoning, and learn to apply content knowledge to problem situations. It is through these standards that they learn how to be mathematicians.

During this workshop, participants will gather instructional strategies that teach critical problem-solving skills, identify classroom tasks that support students’ abstract thinking, reflect on activities and questioning techniques that help students discover the structure of Math including its patterns and properties, and gather strategies for helping students select and use appropriate Math tools.

Participants will receive a comprehensive packet of classroom-proven activities that can be used with students and will have time to explore excellent internet resources.
