Session Descriptions:


Facilitating Guided Reading

August 5, 2019 | 8 am - 3 pm | $100

Presenters: Kim Kirk and Jen Grossen

Move your instructional forward with the Guided Reading model. This full day session is intended to be training on the Emergent, Early, Transitional, and Fluent lesson plans. Using the Jan Richardson Model, participants will learn the components of each stage of instruction and receive materials for implementation. 

This event is geared for educators of grades 1 - 4


Close Reading and Text Dependent Questions

August 5, 2019 | 8 am - 3 pm | $100

Presenters: Hank Schmelz and Michelle Minton

Close Reading is a great tool to offer secondary students access to complex text so they can attack challenging text tied to the common core. For all subject areas! - Grades 5-12

This event is geared for educators of grades 5 - 12


Exploring Effective Mathematical Practices at the Elementary Level

August 6, 2019 | 8 am - 3 pm | $125

Presenters: Mary Richards and Caitlin Duncan

The Wisconsin Math Expression user group will have an opportunity to meet, face-to-face, two to three times during the school year. The goal is for math leaders in your district to engage in conversation and learning that promotes mathematical achievement using Math Expressions. For the 2019/2020 school year, we will be exploring Principles to Actions. This book from NCTM outlines the 8 effective mathematical teaching practices, already embedded in our curriculum as well as the actions school leaders need to take to make change within a district. The face-to-face meetings will consist of a round table discussion of the book as well as a general Q & A session for participants to discuss current topics within their own districts. This is a great opportunity to connect with area math leaders and other Math Expressions users. These meetings will be held regionally throughout the state. The goal of this group is to districts to increase best mathematics instructional practices. Some time will also feature Math Expressions updates and tips as well as Q & A.

This event is geared for educators of grades K-6


Strengthen Your Mathematical Practices at the Secondary Level

August 6, 2019 | 8 am - 12 pm | $125

Presenter: Steven Mijajlovic

This two half-day series will provide participants an opportunity to dig into effective teaching and learning of mathematics. Participants will gain insight into how these sets of practices are necessary parts of a high-quality instructional program that support all learners. Expect to engage in mathematically rich tasks and in discussions centered around continuously refining our professional practice.

This event is geared for educators of grades 7-12 


Moving Writing Forward with Effective Feedback

August 7 & 8, 2019 | 8 - 11:30 am | $125

Presenter: Mary Jo Ziegler

Research supports specific feedback as a powerful teaching and learning tool, but not all feedback is equally powerful. How do we offer feedback that really moves student writing forward? What structures and tools support this work in classrooms? Join us and engage in planning that will guide students toward their very best writing ever!

This event is geared for educators of grades 4K-2


Deep Thinking and Effective Writing - How to Inspire those Reluctant Writers

August 7 & 8, 2019 | 12:30 - 4 pm | $125

Presenter: Mary Jo Ziegler

How do we make writing relevant so that students want to engage? What do we know about engagement research? In this session we will explore Universal Design strategies that support engagement and work collaboratively plan for instruction that scaffolds student thinking and supports writing to learn.

This event is geared for educators of grades 3-12


Mental Health First Aid

August 8, 2019 | 8 am - 3 pm | $100

Presenters: Katie Grade and Lisa McKay 

Just as CPR helps you assist an individual having a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid helps you assist someone experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. In the Mental Health First Aid course, you learn risk factors and warning signs for mental health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situations, and where to turn for help. Topics covered: depression and mood disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma, psychosis, and substance use disorders. 

This event is geared for all school staff

We suggest bringing a sweater, wearing close-toed shoes and/or dressing in layers to assure you are as comfortable as possible while at our facility.
