Workshop
Making WIDA Meaningful

How am I supposed to teach students who don’t speak English? And how do I communicate with their parents? I know about differentiation but how do I differentiate for different language levels? What do these WiDA levels even mean? If you have English language learners (ELLs) in your class, these are probably questions you’ve asked yourself. And as the state with the 2nd fastest ELL population, there are a lot of teachers that have the same questions you have. Join us for this interactive session as we seek to answer these questions and address the following:

•Introduction to WiDA resources and tools

•Second language acquisition and its impact on content learning for younger learners

•Strategies for differentiating content, instruction, student products, and assessment for ELLs

Shoshannah Hernandez serves as an instructor and director for the Institute for TESOL Studies at Huntington University. In addition to managing and teaching within HU’s TESOL programs, she has also served several local school corporations with professional development and coaching for those teaching and working with English learners. Prior to joining Huntington University Shoshannah taught at Huntington North High School in Huntington, IN for three years and taught English as a second language at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio for two years. She also taught English at Liaocheng University in the People’s Republic of China and served as a teacher trainer for the English Language Institute/China for four years.

Workshop
CANCELLED-1 to 1 Tech in the Primary Classroom

You've been told you are going 1:1 and you're wondering: Who do I ask for help? What do I do with it? When do I use it? Where do I keep it? Why do I need it? How might I do it the right way?

When integrating 1:1 devices to any grade level, there are sure to be excitements and challenges. However, with K-2 students, where do you begin when devices have been nothing but toys to these young minds since they were born? This workshop will focus attention on some of the critical questions that teachers are asking when told that they are going 1:1 and offer support and resources to help them make the transition not only smooth, but transformative and exciting!  You will develop practical and useful strategies to help you be an effective and efficient 1:1 classroom teacher.

Workshop
Guided Math

How Does Guided Math Work?

This professional development workshop enables teachers to transition to a highly successful, innovative way to make the most use of your mathematics block. With multiple structured formats to meet the timing of any math block, the teacher develops methods for continual learning, limiting behavior challenges, and immediate feedback to each learner.

Why Does Guided Math Work?

Guided Math is a stations approach format to teaching with the teacher meeting daily with students. Teachers who already use Daily 5, CAFE, or Fountas & Pinnell methods in their reading block, find the transition to Guided Math very easy for all students in their classroom. Students have small group instruction to think through critical processing skills and have guided practice with the teacher. Students work through stations to reinforce skills.

Highlights of the Experience

Receive Guided Math schedules to use

Discuss use of pre-test data in driving your instructional planning

Discover the structure for large group and guided group lessons

Receive and practice with Engaged Math Activities

Discover questioning strategies that develop math understanding

Ongoing support during implementation

Impact student instruction the very next day

Book "Guided Math-The First 25 Days" is part of the workshop fee

Audience  K-5 Classroom Teachers, Instructional Coaches, Curriculum Directors                           

Facilitator: Ashley Perry, Certified Guided Math Trainer  with Bauer Educational Enterprises
