Making Assessment and Classroom Management Fun!
In this interactive session I would like to share with teachers two strategies that I use in my class that make assessment and classroom management fun and valuable for both the students and teacher.

This session will involve an introduction to and practice with a technology resource that gives quick and valuable feedback on assessments that are used in class (ex. warm ups, formative assessments or in lecture check-ins) while engaging students through a fun, interactive platform.

I will also introduce teachers to a management strategy that I have developed over the course of this year that gives students a voice in the expectations of the classroom and shifts the responsibility of monitoring student behavior to the students while keeping the classroom atmosphere fun and engaging.

Differentiating Instruction and ELL Learners
The focus of this session is for teachers to gain a better understanding of language as a resource, understand the need to address ELL needs, and walk away with strategies to start implementing to more effectively meet the needs of ELL students.

Northshore School District has doubled their ELL student population and will only continue to have a growing need to meet the needs of diverse learners. This workshop will provide opportunities for teachers to learn about language aquisition and resources for differentiation. In addition to this teachers will be provided an opportunity to collaborate with their peers to share instructional strategies as well as take time to apply strategies to lessons that they would like to enhance to meet the needs of ELL students.

The session will start with a brief self-assessment where teachers will learn about language acquisition theory and research. This quiz will help set a common research basis to move forward in conversation. From there the first hour will be devoted to an interactive poster session where teachers share their top concerns for working with and addressing the needs of ELL students. Together teachers will brainstorm and share effective strategies to use.  As the facilitator, Kirsten will also provide resources and strategies.

The second hour will be a time for teachers to specifically work on one or more lessons that they would like to differentiate. Possible areas of focus would be using English Language Proficiency Standards (ELPs) to differentiate assessment practices, creating culturally responsive lessons, scaffolding assignments and assessments, and finding and utilizing resources.

Teachers can attend one or both hours of this session. For example, teachers aren't required to attend the first hour to benefit from the 2nd hour (though it would be helpful to attend both).

Organization, Culture, Directions
Establishing the classroom as a place of learning for all students often requires dedicated time and effort by the teacher and students. Organization systems, ways to develop culture with students, and clear directions about routines and systems help create a positive learning environment. Devoted time and repetition at the beginning of the year pays off as students carry out these things throughout the rest of the year.

Making a Makerspace
Makerspaces are a fast-growing phenomenon in education as teachers embrace student-driven learning through problem-solving and designing solutions with creativity.

Kids collaborate. Kids teach. Kids learn.

We will use the ideas of Josef Albers to look at color and different phenomena behind color.

What we see is often considered reality. Using the ideas of Albers and the different concepts behind color theory we will discover that we don't actually pay attention to everything we think we see.

As a visual artist, it is important to know how people see. This lesson helps us understand the process of seeing.

Beyond Relevance and Real-World: Stronger Strategies for Engaging Students in CCSS-M (#5838)
Limited Capacity seats available

We try to engage students in difficult mathematics through real world examples, relevance, and examples of math in the world of jobs. These often fail us, leaving students even more disengaged than they were originally.

We'll look at research from mathematicians and cognitive scientists and discuss strategies for engaging students by developing the question, creating intellectual need, and teaching in three acts. Teachers will leave the session with a website full of strategies and resources.  

Session materials can be accessed at nsd15.mrmeyer.com

NOTE: This session is REQUIRED for secondary math teachers. Register for session #5838 in PD Place; attendees will receive clock hours and pay. Teachers who do not attend this session will attend makeup session #6026 on September 24, 8-3 pm.

Sensory Integration in the Classroom- Secondary (#6126)
Limited Capacity seats available

This class is designed for all teachers who are interested in understanding Sensory Processing Disorders and how this relates to students in the classroom, both general education as well as special education. Secondary Focus.

Have you ever wondered what to do with your children who wiggle and can't attend, or the child who comes in from recess wet, sandy and unaware? What about the "checked-out" middle schooler with the hoodie up and ear buds in? If these students seem hard to reach for you, then this is the class for you. We will cover what the terms sensory processing and sensory differences mean, and how they impact the children in our classrooms and their learning. This class contains practical classroom application of sensory processing ideas, measures to identify children who are struggling to focus due to sensory differences and suggestions to help them. The information is applicable for grades K-12. 

Clock hours are available for all participants. Through a BEST grant, we are also able to offer first-year special education teachers pay for their attendance.
