This workshop will begin by looking at the reading brain in order to make decisions about how to best help struggling readers. I’ll demonstrate phonemic awareness and phonics activities that don’t make older students feel like they are back in the primary grades but that lay the necessary foundation for proficient reading. Next, we’ll put it all together as we apply these skills to work on reading fluency. Finally, we’ll look at activities for building a robust vocabulary that supports reading comprehension More

The Kansas state history/government standards and state assessment are not your typical documents. Instead of focusing on memorizing specific content measured by multiple choice tests, students are now being asked to do social studies by thinking historically, solving problems, and to read, write, and communicate. reading, writing, and speaking. Join Glenn as he highlights his C4 Framework, a practical structure for planning and implementing a cohesive instructional arc that supports integrating social studies and ELA. During this session, Glenn will share a variety of effective resources that encourage high-level thinking, document analysis, and literacy skills. Handouts, online materials and giveaways are all part of the fun! More

Using technology as part of social studies instruction is no longer optional. Our students use mobile devices, the Internet, video games, social media, and many other forms of technology. To maintain relevance in the lives of students and to create successful high school graduates, your classroom instruction needs to include not only social studies content but current tools and skills. Join Glenn as he showcases content specific websites and technology examples that can be immediately implemented into your lesson and unit designs. Gr. 5-12 More

This workshop will introduce participants to assembling of VEX EDR robot kits and how to program the robot using the RobotC software, so that it will then perform as code commanded. It is expected that each participant will bring a Windows/PC laptop and VEX EDR competition robot kit with them. Participants will also be introduced to how to use the 2017-2018 competitive robotics game for both elementary and secondary so that schools that missed the summer 2017 training can now also be equipped to facilitate student teams for the 2018 VEX competitions. A brief mention of how robotics can also be part of a funded CTE pathway will also be included. The workshop materials fee of $15 will include a VEX robotics handout with diagrams to better facilitate robotics programming and assembly skills during and after the workshop! Please call Clelia McCrory at 620-694-9289 with workshop questions! More

K-8 We must begin to think of our content standards as the vehicle for helping students develop the communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking skills necessary for post-secondary success. The Eight Mathematical Practices and the Eight Science and Engineering Practices in the NGSS provide teachers with clear guidance for classroom instruction to meet this goal. It is essential to develop an understanding of how the two sets of standards can complement each other and be used in concert to improve students’ computational thinking, in both math and science. In this workshop participants will engage in hands-on activities tailored to the elementary and middle school grade levels to explore, analyze, and create science instruction that reflects these practices. *Title III Funds can be used to pay for this workshop.

Need a great way to jumpstart your math period? Looking for strategies that promote accuracy, efficiency, flexibility, and communication in math? Number Talks is what you have been looking for. The focus of this training is to increase student engagement through communication around mental math in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Number Talks provide a structure to promote a safe community for learners while engaging in 5-15 minute conversations around the area of whole number operations. We will explore: designing purposeful conversations, posing good questions, following student thinking, recording that thinking to make it visible for all students, and the connection to the eight math practices from the KCCRS. We will spend time practicing these techniques and viewing examples of Number Talks in action. Participants will leave with Renee’s Number Talks book with sample lessons and a DVD of various teachers and students using Number Talks in actual instruction. (Title III funds may be used for this training.) More
