OCTOBER 23, 2017 (8:30 A.M. – 12 P.M.)
Paula Kluth, Text Maps to Memory Caps: Differentiating Instruction in K-12 Classrooms
This idea-filled, interactive workshop is focused on using teacher-created materials to meet the needs of all learners in inclusive schools. Educators will learn ways to engage, motivate, support, and inspire a diverse group of students by creating classroom games, study aids, visuals supports, teaching tools, and review materials. Participants will learn about strategies and adaptations and will have opportunities to try some of them out as well.

NOVEMBER 20, 2017 (8:30 A.M. – 12 P.M.)
Diane Sweeney, Student Centered Coaching
Student-Centered Coaching introduces a new way of delivering instructional coaching that puts students’ needs front and center. By focusing on goals for student learning, rather than on fixing teachers, we create partnerships that increase student achievement. Outcomes:

  • Learn how to measure the impact of coaching using the Results-Based Coaching Tool.
  • Develop strategies for increasing principal and coach partnerships.
  • Understand how to use coaching cycles to impact student learning.

DECEMBER 19, 2017 (12:00 P.M. – 3:30 P.M.)
Samantha Bennett, Worthy Work: What Students Need Most to Engage and Learn
Workshop teaching isn’t always a well understood concept. Sam will show systems, structures, routines, and rituals that support successful workshops. Further, Sam will demonstrate how these characteristics can be applied to any content area to gain high levels of student engagement and achievement. Participants will be able to describe the qualities of “work” that make it worthy of students’ time and apply long-term and daily planning strategies that will impact student engagement.

Samantha Bennett Topic 2, How To Help Teachers Articulate Their Practice to Impact Student Learning
Sam will offer practical ways that coaches can help teachers articulate the research, theory, student data, and professional intuition to support their teaching practices. Participants will learn strategies with which to get feedback FROM teachers so as to design experiences to help them develop and that will expand their Professional Capital.

FEBRUARY 19, 2018 (8:30 A.M. – 12 P.M.)
Sandi Slough, Maintaining Momentum Through Masterful Coaching
Masterful coaches focus on growth and unlocking potential. They use dynamic conversations to unpack thinking and fuel innovative solutions. Instructional leaders and instructional coaches have the added benefit of using observation and feedback to fuel and support growth over time. At times, a coach pushes, at times they pull and at times they simply walk beside the teacher on their growth track. In this session we will explore ideas and techniques that forward sustainable growth and tap into inner motivation for success.

MARCH 8, 2018 (8:30 A.M. – 12 P.M.)
Cris Tovani, Formative Assessment: Monitoring, Assessing, and Grading Students' Thinking and Performance
Cris Tovani explores the complex issue of monitoring, assessing, and grading students' thinking and performance with fairness and fidelity. Like all teachers, Cris struggles to balance her student-centered instruction with school system mandates. Her recommendations are realistic and practical; she understands that what isn't manageable isn't sustainable.

MAY 16, 2018 (8:30 A.M. – 12 P.M.)
Elena Aguilar, Coaching for Emotional Resilience: Foundations, Strategies, and Mental Models
Elena will lead us on an exploration of how we can coach teachers and leaders to thrive, not just survive, in challenging times and places. Her talk will include highlights and excerpts from Elena’s new book, Onward: Cultivating Emotional Resilience in Educators (Jossey-Bass, publication date May 1, 2018).
