Do you use charts in your classroom to help make learning “stick,” but often end up feeling “stuck” instead? Educators often find themselves wondering how to use charts more effectively to support student learning. From questions such as, “How many charts is too many?” to “How can I help my students use the charts independently?” and “How can I tell if my charts are even effective?,” this workshop is here to help! When used properly, charts can be a valuable tool to support independence and transfer within the classroom. Throughout the day, participants will study how experts successfully use charts to support student learning. Collaborative discussions and hands-on experiences will allow for discovery of different types of charts and their purposes.


OBJECTIVES
Participants will learn to:

  • Use language effectively to support independence and transfer.
  • Use color, icons, drawings, and photographs as tools to clarify vs. confuse.
  • Engage and involve learners in the chart-making process.
  • Draw visuals efficiently and effectively to enhance understanding.
  • Use music, movement, and rhythm to make learning stick.
  • Make charts portable.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of charts.
  • Know when it's time to revise or "retire" a chart.


THIS WORKSHOP IS A GOOD FIT FOR:
Kindergarten through 5th grade teachers who are currently using charts within their classroom to support student learning, as well as reading specialists, literacy coaches, instructional leaders, and principals.


PARTICIPANTS SHOULD BRING:
Three anchor charts that they have created / utilized with learners this year (physical anchor charts or pictures of anchor charts).


REGISTRATION FEE*:
$150 per participant includes access to online materials and resources and lunch.

* Principals’ registration fee is just $35 if attending with a team of at least 4 staff members.
