Personalizing with Proficiency Scales
Limited Capacity filling up

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
Participants will learn ways to differentiate instruction. They will understand and develop tiered assignments based on the levels found in proficiency scales that are needed to master and exceed standards

Description: 
Looking for a way to reach students of diverse needs in your classroom?  Try using tiered assignments! This session will provide an overview of the elements of a differentiated classroom and help participants use standards, proficiency scales and learner profiles to create assignments that support all learners.

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
Our presentation will be delivered using Google Slides. Participants will collaborate with others within their same grade band to analyze and create tiered assignments based on grade-level standards.

Elementary School Leaders' Influence on Standards-based Mathematics
Limited Capacity seats available

Target Audience (Elementary, Secondary, Other):
Coaches/Leaders

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
School leaders will understand their role in the implementation of Standards-based mathematics instruction. 

Description: 
Have you underestimated the complexity of Standards-based mathematics instruction?  Could it be hindering student growth at your school?  
The North Carolina Standard Course of Study for K-8 Mathematics set expectations for the content and skills students should master by the end of each grade and the practices in which they should use regularly, but these standards do not include directions on how to teach to meet the expectations. In order to successfully provide this type of instruction, teachers need to have a deep understanding of both the content and how students understand and learn the content (Ball, 2003; Clements & Sarama, 2004; Carpenter, Fennema, Peterson, Chiang & Loef, 1989). The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics supported the creation and implementation of the common mathematics Standards and acknowledged that the shift would take time (NCTM, 2014; Hirsch, Lappan, & Reys, 2012). This means the implementation of Standards-based instruction requires training as well as time for teachers to develop new instructional strategies. In this session, school leaders will learn how to support Standards-based mathematics instruction to promote teacher and student growth. 

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
This session will incorporate lecture and discussion facilitated through mathematics education research and student work samples.

Flipping the Script: Exploring the 3 Acts of an Oscar Worthy Math Class
Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
The session aims to increase teacher understanding of and comfort with:
*Implementing engaging tasks that promote reasoning and problem solving.
*Providing low floor, high ceiling tasks to promote equity and access.
*Building relationships through the facilitation of meaningful discourse.
*Increasing student voice and ownership in the problems they solve and strategies they use.
*Posing purposeful questions.
*Supporting productive struggle.
*Transitioning from teacher centered to student centered instruction.

Description: 
This session will challenge the tenants of a traditional math class by challenging teachers to be less helpful, allowing their students call the shots in the using the 3 Act Approach. Participants will immerse themselves in a 3-Act Task as a learner, then dive deeper into the structures and supports of a successful 3-Act Task. They will explore how 3-Act Tasks provide all students with access to mathematics in a way that is highly engaging and develops their agency and curiosity as learners.



Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
Participants will participate in a 3 Act Task as a Learner so that the process is modeled for them. The lesson will be housed in a Google Webpage including Vimeos. Participants will then compare engagement, student agency, content delivery and real-world implications of this type of lessons to that of a traditional math lesson with direct instruction and practice. Interviews of students from FOES will be included about their experiences with 3 Act Tasks.

3 Act Process
Act 1:  Setting the Hook/Creating a NEED to do math.
Participants will view a quick video clip of a real world situation to spark curiosity.  Participants notice and wonder about what they see.  Participants pose questions and define a problem that is worth their time to solve. 
Act 2:  Gathering Tools/Information
Participants estimate possible solutions.  Participants identify additional resources and information needed to solve their problem.  The facilitator provides information only when asked by the participant.  Participants work on solving their problem/answering their question.
Act 3:  The Reveal
Participants share their answers/solutions and discuss strategies.  The facilitator reveals the actual answer.  Discussion follows about reasonableness of estimates, answers, and strategies.

Pathways to Engagement
Limited Capacity filling up

Learning Objectives & Rationale:
  • Understand the importance and relevance of using a pathway
  • Introduced to resources to help implement a pathway
  • Be able to create a pathway
  •  Also they will learn a lot from our mistakes!

Description: 
During this session teachers can learn how and why they should  use a pathway with early elementary children.   We will share design and implementation ideas from our experiences using them this past school year. Teachers will have the chance to begin a pathway for their classroom during this session.

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
Use of a smart board to show examples and design. Teachers need a charged device. 60 minutes

Problem-Based Learning Units: Integrating Science into ELA
Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
  • Participants will understand integrated units.
  • Participants will understand how to use literacy skills/standards to explore science concepts.
  • Participants will be excited to try problem-based learning in their own classrooms. 
  • Participants will have brainstormed ideas including questions that address one or more standards they want to cover using the model.

Description: 
Student engagement is bred out of encounters with exploring their curiosities. In this session, we will dive into a problem-based learning model that allows students to use their ELA skills to discover the answers to big questions they want to solve about the real world - including ideas about science and social studies.

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
We will give participants a driving question (problem to solve) and allow them to work through sources to integrate information and report back - exactly what their students will do should they decide to use this model.

Building Bridges: Best Practices for ELs
Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
Participants will analyze what ELs can do at various language levels based on the four domains of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. They will then explore what instructional strategies and language supports are needed for each EL to access and master content. 

Description: 
This session will provide an overview of collaborative methods and models for planning, instruction, and assessment of English Learners using the WIDA Standards. We will dig deeper into best practices for applying the WIDA Standards in content classes with a focus on academic vocabulary and North Carolina's "Can Do Philosophy" for ELs. 

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
We will use a Google presentation with links, WIDA Can Do puzzles & Gallery Walk (hands on and partner work), as well as Instructional Strategies & Support chart (individual work & reflection). Micheline & I model explicitly what we expect participants to do. Participants will need a device and room to move around and work in pairs.

Using Proficiency Scales to Drive Instruction
Limited Capacity filling up

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
Teachers will be able to construct a pre-assessment using a proficiency scale.  In addition, teachers will be able to explain the process of designing a unit based on learning targets in a proficiency scale. 

Description: 
Are proficiency scales driving your instruction or DRIVING YOU CRAZY?  If you feel overwhelmed by proficiency scales, this session may be for you. In this session we will look at an example of a pre-assessment created using a proficiency scale and how that data is used to drive instruction.  We will look at ways to manage students working at various levels within the proficiency scale as well as how to use individual check-ins to determine student progress.

Modalities/Implementation Practices:
During this session information will be delivered through an interactive visual presentation, hands on activities, and  colleague collaboration.
