  • Designed for teachers in grades K-3.

     

    Literacy instruction is as difficult as it is essential. This program will provide early grades teachers with a complement of research-based tools and strategies to help answer some of their more burning questions: How do I teach “close reading” to students who don’t yet know the alphabet? What level of writing can I attain from children who are still learning to spell? How do I simultaneously provide enrichment for advanced readers and remediation for delayed readers? How can I integrate reading and writing instruction into all other subject areas? What does this instruction look like in the classroom and how are student engagement and learning measured in this process?

  • STEM implementation can begin with a teacher leading a 30-minute STEM activity and progress to a student PBL investigation that may take weeks to accomplish. Navigating this implementation can be a challenge. This program is for teachers ready to design their own STEM curriculum. Teachers will explore common misconceptions and examine four common frameworks of STEM lessons (Problem Based Learning, Project Based Learning, Place Based Learning and Case Based Learning). Not only will you participate in examples of student led PBLs, but also create your own PBL/CBL(s) for your specific content areas. Coaching and collaborative planning ensure that some of the potential roadblocks of implementation can be addressed before you leave.
