Social Studies Professional Learning Group Day 4 The new Kansas History / Government standards encourage a research-based approach to instructional and learning. But what does high-quality historical thinking look like? What resources are best? What books should we be reading? What tools work best? What lesson plans can we share? Be part of the group as we work together to figure out the answers! We'll get together at ESSDACK throughout the year, set our own agenda, enjoy great conversation, and walk out the door smarter and better prepared to provide high-quality classroom instruction.

A Choose Your Own Edventure Mini-Conference! We know that one of the most effective ways to hook students into deeper learning is to craft an experience that’s all about meeting talents, needs, and interests. And while Personalized Learning isn't complicated, it is complex if we're truly tailoring instruction for and with our students. Come experience what a truly personalized learning environment might feel like at a K12 classroom level. We'll also spend some time building a plan for how to support personalized learning at a systemic level for those ready to take on that challenge. There's a little something for everyone here, because it really is about YOU! Presenters: Ginger Lewman, Jane Seward, Carmen Zeisler, Renee Smith, Katie Perez and Robi Alstrom. More

Who should attend? Elementary teachers & Interventionists Launching successful readers is the goal of Pathways to Reading (PTR). The model is designed to assist teachers in understanding phonemic awareness and phonics and their relationship to the development of reading and spelling, preventively and remedially, and integrate the instruction with other research-based components of fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. With a focus on student engagement, participants will learn to differentiate and pace small group instruction and incorporate Dr. David Kilpatrick’s one-minute oral PA exercises. In addition, participants will increase their knowledge base with an awareness of the recent findings on orthographic mapping and its relevance to fluent reading. PTR training is for K-2nd grade general education teachers, Title 1, Special Education, ELL, Reading Specialists, Interventionists at all grade levels. Title III funds may be used for this training. Which manual should you choose when you register? We understand you work with multiple grade levels, however, the training fee includes one level of manuals. Please choose from these levels: Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, or Intermediate (for 3rd & above). You might check with colleagues and designate different grade levels to train so that most or all levels of materials are received. More

Cognitively Guided Instruction (CGI) is a problem-solving mathematics program designed to improve number sense and computation for students in Kindergarten through fifth grades. 

This instructional practice increases the rigor and relevance of mathematics and is closely aligned to the eight Mathematical Practice Standards from the KCCRS.

CGI is proven effective for boys and girls of diverse social class, racial, ethnic, and language proficiency backgrounds. It also provides a strong foundation for developing cognitive and technical skills in middle and high school students. NCTM past president, Mary Lindquist, describes the impact of CGI, "In recognizing how students develop mathematically, you may find yourself asking questions . . . You will begin to rethink who can learn mathematics and what it means to learn mathematics . . . You will begin to rethink how you teach mathematics . . ."

 Participation will be limited to 30 participants. Title III funds may be used for this training.
