Half-day Pre-conference

Qualities of Effective Teachers:
Improving Schools One Classroom at a Time

Dr. James H. Stronge

Do teachers make a difference in how much and how well students learn? What we’ve known intuitively all along, we now know empirically: there is a direct, measurable link between teacher effectiveness and student success. This half-day workshop will feature the latest research-to-practice findings detailed in Qualities of Effective Teachers, 3rd Ed. (ASCD, 2018). It will focus on what effective teachers do and how we identify those qualities most desired in the best teachers including:

    • Teacher professional knowledge
    • Instructional planning
    • Instructional delivery
    • Student assessment
    • Learning environment
    • Personal attributes of effective teachers

Everyday PBL: Quick Projects to Build Problem-solving Fluency

Brian Pete

How do we prepare our students for the test of life? We teach them how to learn when they are not being taught! It's time to transform instruction into enriched student inquiry learning models. Everyday PBL moves students toward relevance in the curriculum that uses 21st Century, real-world applications. PBL is more practical than theoretical, but as students gain a sense of ownership, through students’ empowerment, it changes student behaviors before your eyes. This workshop will help participants to:

    • Shift from teacher-led to student-led learning
    • Develop authentic problem-solving fluency
    • Empower student agency for lifelong challenges

Unlocking Student Talent: The New Science of Developing Student Expertise

Dr. Robin Fogarty

Is it true that experts are made with 10,000 hours of practice? Answer: It depends on the kind of practice used. In the classroom, building expertise is about putting kids first by giving them “voice and choice” in their own learning. Personalized learning adapts a metacognitive approach that fosters self-direction, self-monitoring, and self-evaluation. Personalized learning means greater student achievement through self-determined change (interests), challenge (goals), and choice (methods). In short, the thrust is to engage students in ways that they become the “stewards of their own learning.” This workshop will help participants to:

    • Ignite emotions to motivate students
    • Understand “reach & repeat” deliberate practice
    • Personalize learning with coaching feedback
