14635 • New to the Exceptional Children’s Classroom: Surviving and Thriving-Cullowhee

Monday, June 25, 2018 to Friday, June 29, 2018

276 NCCAT Drive, Cullowhee, NC 28723

Exceptional Children (EC) teachers have all of the traditional needs of beginning teachers, plus a lot more--and often those additional needs incur the greatest need for support. Open to teachers in their first, second, or third year of EC teaching, this program supports motivated beginning EC teachers by strengthening their knowledge base and classroom expertise. Through experiential learning, teachers will explore differentiated instruction, brain-compatible teaching, co-teaching, student advocacy, small group facilitation, and more. Come prepared to build professional competence and confidence, improve student achievement, and reinforce your commitment to this critically important profession.

14634 • Strategies for Motivating and Building Reading Skills in Any Subject-Cullowhee

Monday, June 25, 2018 to Thursday, June 28, 2018

276 NCCAT Drive, Cullowhee, NC 28723

Designed for teachers in grades 412.

Teaching reading skills in English/Language Arts classes and across the disciplines is an almost guaranteed way to help students retain content. Unfortunately, the tendency to focus on the content is a real enemy to the ultimate goal of building reading skills. Without a repertoire of reading strategies that can be applied to any text, reluctant, struggling and disengaged students are not assured enough opportunities to read throughout the school day. In order to teach students to read effectively, teachers must be sure that they are not simply suppliers of information about a particular text but also instructors of techniques to build reading skills using materials that are relevant to their students. Participants in this program will review ideas about how to incorporate reading skill lessons into their curriculum so that they are enticing to struggling, reluctant, and disengaged learners.

14632 • Google Tools in Schools-Ocracoke

Monday, June 18, 2018 to Friday, June 22, 2018

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

Whether or not your school or district has adopted a Google Chromebook environment, if your LEA infrastructure allows for the use of Google Tools and/or Apps, the “Googlesphere” can be an immense help. It can aid in engaging students, keeping in touch with parents, automating feedback and assessment, sharing documents, and more. Hone your skills with the Google Chrome Browser, with Google Apps, with Android Apps, and with Chrome OS so that you can engage your students using freely available tools on almost any platform.

14631 • Mission Possible: Uncovering Social Studies and Science Content Using Literacy-Ocracoke

Tuesday, June 12, 2018 to Friday, June 15, 2018

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

Elementary teachers may find that “fitting it all in” is impossible. Using informational text and technologies, elementary teachers will discover that not only is it possible to “fit it all in” it is fun! Examine the North Carolina Essential Standards and make connections to the North Carolina Standard Course of Study, ELA and Writing Standards. Investigate text sets and the role they play in integrating multiple contents. Create engaging cross-curricular instructional units with culminating projects for assessments.
