Designed for teachers of the elementary grades.

Today’s classrooms are filled with diverse students who have unique learning needs. Students identified with special needs have specific learning goals as mandated by their IEPs. This program is designed for elementary teachers who would like to enhance their repertoire of literacy strategies to meet the various needs of all students in their classroom, including students who are identified with special needs. Teachers will investigate various exceptionalities and explore ways to accommodate and modify literacy assignments and instruction to meet their specific learning goals.

276 NCCAT Drive, Cullowhee, NC 28723

Designed for teachers in grades 9–12.

Do you want to transition your CTE course to an honors level? Are you interested in making a rigorous course even more rigorous? Attend this program to learn how to develop an honors portfolio that focuses on increasing the rigor in your curriculum content, instructional methods, and assessments.

14681 • The Write to Read-Ocracoke

Monday, September 17, 2018 to Thursday, September 20, 2018

2 Irvin Garrish Highway, PO Box 1540, Ocracoke, NC 27960

Writing to read is a widely accepted educational method designed to encourage reading engagement and comprehension. Through the writing to learn process, students learn to understand how writing, thinking, and reading are interrelated. This program will provide participants with experiences for improving students’ ability to write about what they are reading and about writing processes involved with creating text. Participants will also research and review strategies for increasing how much students write and for using writing to increase how much students read. 

14680 • Differentiated Instruction: Making it Work in the Elementary Classroom-Cullowhee

Monday, September 17, 2018 to Thursday, September 20, 2018

276 NCCAT Drive, Cullowhee, NC 28723

Differentiated instruction is one of those terms, like “rigor” or “fidelity,” that many people use but few understand. Grounded in the work of Carol Ann Tomlinson, who insists that all learning tasks should “respect the learner,” this program will provide guidance in how to adjust instruction so that all students are appropriately challenged and highly engaged. Participants are asked to bring a growth mindset and a steadfast belief that all students can learn. Teachers will refine current practices to differentiate lesson plans that reach every student. We will explore flexible grouping and lesson and unit plan goals to maximize student learning.

14679 • Content Ready Digital Classroom-Cullowhee

Monday, September 17, 2018 to Thursday, September 20, 2018

276 NCCAT Drive, Cullowhee, NC 28723

Explore disciplinary literacy and what it means to read, write, speak, listen, and think critically within any content area. Through the use of online tools, such as online sticky notes, journal writing and mind maps, investigate literacy within the disciplines. These tools will assist your students in becoming more resourceful by taking ownership of their learning. Create new lessons or update current ones with digital tools that will make your lessons come to life.
