  • Designed for teachers in grades 4–12.

    Our public schools are encountering a multicultural diversity challenge. Minority students (and all students) need to see positive verbal and visual images of children like themselves in the books they read. When children see themselves in books they are motivated to read more books and read more often. It can increase self-esteem and make them feel part of the larger society. Reading literature about people from other cultures can increase sensitivity to those who are different from themselves, improve their knowledge of the world, and help them realize that although people have many differences, they also share many similarities. Learn to identify and evaluate books and online literacy resources that you can use to build a positive multicultural classroom. Become familiar with grants and other sources you can use to acquire multicultural resources.

  • Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) have become hot topics in schools. With the use of Google Expeditions, students can travel to almost anywhere in the world within seconds. Science and social studies standards then come to life because students are immersed in different situations, locations, and cultures.  Students are more engaged and exhibit deeper thinking as they ask complicated questions about what they are experiencing. Using an AR app, students can transpose virtual objects into the real world, allowing them to “hold” objects like a human heart while learning about the different parts and functions.  Although seeing through VR goggles and holding AR objects are amazing opportunities, many students are ready for the next step: creation. Come learn how to not only integrate VR and AR into your standards but also how to move your students to the next step of creating their own Mixed Reality (MR). 

    The Focus Friday programs offer teachers the opportunity to look into a variety of topics while at NCCAT,  a recognized national leader in professional development programming for teachers, for a day. Come be a part of NCCAT’s daylong professional development session.

  • Designed for teachers of grades 4–12

    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.
