In this session teachers will explore writing mini-lessons, using mentor texts, conferring, and providing feedback for writing. Teachers will leave with a bank of mini-lesson ideas for teaching opinion writing, as well as ideas for developing their own units of writing instruction.

Inspiring Reading: A 3-D Look at Teaching Reading (K-5)

Inspiring Reading: A 3-D Look at Teaching Reading (K-5)

During our lit blocks, we plan for students to learn in three settings: whole class, small group, and independent. In this session, we will explore activities to foster literacy learning in these three settings. We’ll dive into a first-read minilesson to engage students with complex texts during your whole class teaching. Then we’ll examine a small group framework to enhance your guided reading instruction. Lastly, we’ll delve into coaching conversations you can use to confer with each student during independent reading.

Beyond climate: Understanding global change as a way to understand the nature of science and its role in society Speaker: Joseph Levine

Beyond climate: Understanding global change as a way to understand the nature of science and its role in society Speaker: Joseph Levine

Global warming and its effects are in the news all the time, because scientific consensus links warming to heat waves, droughts, rising sea levels, melting glaciers, stronger hurricanes, and changes in ecosystem function. But climate change is just one way human activities affect the biosphere. Our species has become the single most important driver of global change – which is why so many scientists refer to the present time as the Anthropocene, which means (more or less) “The age of humanity.” This talk will focus on the Understanding Global Change project, which aims to create a conceptual framework to help us get a handle on this complicated and interdisciplinary phenomenon.
