Session Descriptions (choose two)Highly Engaging ClassroomsThe purpose of our Highly Engaging Classroom presentation is to improve student engagement, as this is the key to effective teaching. Student engagement happens when teachers purposefully create an environment that is physically, mentally, emotionally and socially secure and engaging. CCSS Literacy across the CurriculumWhile modeling highly motivating classroom strategies, this cross-curricular presentation introduces teachers to best practices in developing literacy skills. Some of the topics covered include: • Literacy – not just for English/Language Arts Teachers• CCSS Anchor Standards• Literacy and Differentiation Strategies• Suggestions for Additional Resources to Help Grow Literacy Strategies Leveraging Technology for the CCSSThis informative presentation is designed to introduce educators to using technology in the classroom, and it includes technology best practices and specific ideas for implementation. Project-Based Learning for the CCSSProject-Based Learning is an instructional approach built upon authentic learning activities that engage student interest and motivation. These activities are designed to answer a question or solve a problem and generally reflect the types of learning and work people do in the everyday world. PBL teaches skills as well as content, including communication and presentation skills, organization and time management skills, research and inquiry skills, and self-assessment and reflection skills. CCSS Writing Across the CurriculumThis presentation allows teachers in all subject areas and grade levels to not only teach writing to increase content knowledge, but to also meet CCSS anchor standards. Teachers will learn:• The three modes of CCSS writing and the revised writing process; • How to integrate, assign, and teach writing within their curriculum;• How to evaluate and assess student writing;• Writing strategies to begin implementing immediately; and • How PARCC envisions writing in their assessments. Mathematics and Numeracy for CCSSThis mathematics presentation includes an overview of the K-12 Mathematics Standards with emphasis on their organizational structure and suggested time lines for implementation. The session will enable elementary and secondary mathematics teachers to better understand the expectations of the Common Core Standards and provide instructional and assessment strategies that can be used immediately in their classrooms.
