Common Core That Works: Research, Grammar, and Fun in the English Classroom

Thick or Thin? Presentation Skills and Frameworks for Teachers and Students
Should student presentations be text heavy? Or have only one word? Jon Corippo will share the correct answer: It depends. Student presentations can be powerful models of the 4Cs in action - or a deconstructed paragragh, it all just depends on what is appropriate for the lesson in question. Jon will also be sharing great tricks for creating prettier and more engaging slides and presentations.

No More Popsicle Sticks
Don't gather data from one student when you can gather it from EVERY student. The idea of tricking kids to listen in a 1:1 environment is no longer academically sound. So how do we find out what kids know? Come ready to amp up your tools to gather data from every student, easily, regardless of platform. Have your teachers snapshot the entire class, instead of random drawings. Learn how to grade less and give more feedback. Attendees will participate in an all out battle, exploring, creating, and analyzing some digital tools in this #edufightclub.

360 Degree Math: a Math Class Revolution
Flip the script in the math class by putting your students center stage with 360 degree math. Learn how you can easily upgrade the learning environment with any given budget. From low budget to baller status, get your students up, performing, solving, and persevering by livening up the environment with whiteboard surfaces & some music cues. Attendees will run through simulations of what it's like teach and learn in a 360 degree math class. They'll also leave with the resources (inventory, implementation, tech integration) to go back to their sites and have their classrooms join the 360 Math revolution.
