Valuable Reading Tactics that Increase Success in ALL Content Areas (1-12): Many times

Cindy Jones $100 NT160521-P01

during classroom silent or round robin reading students zone out to another place. The goal of this training is to give you dozens of classroom-proven, practical ideas for teaching content area vocabulary and skills that will give students the essential strategies to read for meaning, make the critical connections that are necessary for them to learn the skills and concepts they need to know, and to stay focused on the task. You'll leave this fast-paced seminar with many valuable ideas and classroom-proven techniques you can use immediately to enable your students to read and comprehend content area materials and stay focused and excited about learning. The research from Harmon and Wood (reading, writing, and talking in the content areas), V. Ackerson (connecting language arts and science), and R. Sinatra (reading more effectively in content areas). The research reports that the use of a variety of reading approaches is necessary to give students multiple options for making sense of the content. Reading approaches should vary and be adapted in relation to individual and diverse students in the classroom setting. Teacher Standards: 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E, 1F, 3C; Charlotte Danielson: Domains 2C, 3C

What Teachers Want: Practical, Positive, Powerful Classroom Management Strategies That Work (PK-12): A recent poll by Public Agenda found that 77% of teachers, more than 3 out of 4, consider discipline to be the biggest obstacle to effective teaching. These discipline problems are a major cause of teacher burnout and teacher walk out. In this lively, interactive session you will learn strategies to help eliminate most low-level discipline problems, reduce teacher stress, and promote academic excellence. It is no surprise that today’s students come to our classrooms with more challenges than ever before. Therefore, it is also not alarming that today’s teachers spends more time dealing with discipline than focusing on teaching. Ultimately who loses? Well, using my research-based strategies everybody wins, resulting in empowerment and reduced stress, decreased number of disruptions in the classroom, increased student achievement, greater parental buy-in and support. Do you want to successfully manage your classroom? Are you p r e p a r e d to succeed with students, parents, and administration? Attend this session and walk away with the tools to keep both you and your students motivated to learn. Behavior can be changed!

The Power of Reflective Practice on Improvement and Attainment: Are You the Teacher You’ve Always Wanted to Be? Much of our current nationwide approach to education

Fernando Mesa

seeks to have us focus on goal attainment; however, merely quantifying one aspect of the teaching practice or of students’ learning does not make it of greater importance than those things not as easily measurable. Teaching has always been a matter of relationship. This workshop is designed to provide meaningful strategies to help educators improve their personal reflection as well as help improve reflection between teacher and student, and student and student. Educators will explore how reflection influences how students learn and how and why they instruct the way they do. Teachers will learn skills that will support them as they help students take ownership of their learning, teach them how to reflect, and encourage them to be honest in their selfexamination. The session will focus on the value of reflective listening, reflective questioning, reflective answering and the power of honesty and humility. That includes the humility that comes from acknowledging that one does not have all the answers. Teacher Standards: 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E, 1F, 2A, 2B, 2C, 3A, 3B, 3C, 4A, 4B,

significant and growing problem for America. Experienced educators have witnessed the increase of students who live in poverty and have seen their jobs become more challenging as a result.

Short on Time: The Power of Organization and Time Management: Mounting internal and external pressures for improvement and accountability have recently spotlighted planning and time management as key factors for overall growth and achievement. Amid the complexities of change, the fragmentation of the school day and expanded daily activities and expectations, research has documented that educators are seeking order and control. Time is important because its scarceness affects productivity and its use has significant effects – within and beyond the classroom. Recognizing that time management can increase educator effectiveness through improved control and prioritization, this workshop focuses on helping pre-service, beginning, and veteran teachers design and develop their own organizational and time management skills. Participants will explore research-based practices while learning new strategies for managing their time, involving others, setting priorities and achieving balance between their personal and professional life. The session will focus on addressing the challenges of both organization and time management and the need for educators to become leaders. Participants will learn strategies such as, but not limited to, prioritizing tasks, planning, scheduling, organizing and the delegation of responsibilities. In addition, participants will be guided through an analysis of their current time allocations and be provided with techniques for monitoring and improving their skills.

Because Teachers Matter: The Ordinary Practices of Extraordinary Teachers: Across the country, schools and school districts are scrambling to hire qualified, effective teachers. The issue is so critical that in some school systems, districts are allowing new hires to train on the job and are bringing in candidates who are still finishing their teaching credentials. However, what happens once we recruit them? What type of training and support do we provide as a means of retaining our effective teachers? Written with the pre-service, beginning, and veteran teachers in mind, this workshop series is designed to help educators discover and develop their own special traits that make them exceptional teachers. Participants will explore research-based practices while learning new strategies for conducting parent-teacher conferences, developing ideas for personal and professional growth, increasing parental involvement, and gaining new insight on learning styles and multiple intelligences. The sessions will focus on addressing the challenges impacting the teaching profession and provide guides for individual and group reflection. Keeping in mind that understanding yourself is the first step in becoming the enthusiastic, inspirational teacher to whom students respond best, participants will explore questions such as: Who was the best teacher you ever had?
