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.

Algebraic Concepts + Proportional Relations + Geometry + Statistics + Probability + You = Student Success with the CCSSM in Middle School Mathematics

Description:

We are currently on a journey that has the potential to make an unprecedented difference for students if we think purposefully about how to change practice and about the content that we teach.  Teachers are a BIG part of the “we” necessary to realize the potential of the Common Core.

In Grades 6-8 instructional time should focus on four critical areas: (1) developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships; (2) developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and solving equations; (3) analyzing two and three-dimensional space and figures using distance, angel, similarity and congruence; and (4) drawing inferences about populations based on samples.
During this workshop, participants will explore strategies/activities that illustrate problem-solving in these critical areas.

Learning Objectives:

Teaching problem-solving is a very difficult task.  One of the major difficulties in teaching problem-solving is identifying activities that consider both pupil readiness and curricular goals.  This workshop is designed to model various problem-solving strategies as well as giving participants hands-on practice in applying them.

Participants will learn about and experience the types of classroom activities and instructional strategies that support effective learning and problem-solving and ultimately lead to student success.  Questions similar to those that appear on the CCSSM will be addressed in the workshop.  Participants will leave with valuable materials and resources that they can use in their classrooms.

Audience: Grades 6-8 math teachers, Curriculum Specialists, Instructional Coaches
