Teaching Word Solving Strategies - A Forgotten Skill?
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

While strategies for comprehension are the primary focus of reading instruction, the ability to recognize words by sight and how to solve unfamiliar words is also necessary. So you know your students would benefit from learning these specific skills, but you're not sure how to teach these strategies. This session will show you how to identify students who need this specific instruction and how to actively engage them in word work lessons. The areas that will be addressed include: how sounds in the English language are represented by various letter combinations; how to break words into parts; and how to effectively use context to solve unfamiliar words – ALL WITHOUT WORKSHEETS! As an added bonus, many of these skills are related to helping students become better spellers too. Optional $10.00 fee for a CD with printable materials.

Bring Your Horse Sense to School
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Our session is for teachers and staff who are looking for a way to empower and support students with greater ease while connecting on a deeper level. During this session, participants will understand experiential learning from a somatic perspective. Horses are master teachers, intuitive partners and meet us exactly where and how we show up on any given day. They support us in learning the true meaning (and feeling) of acceptance, empowerment and living in the moment. Becoming familiar and accustomed to being in this space sets a foundation to relieve anxiety, calm negative emotions and develop positive relationships. Participants will engage in a series of equine assisted activities facilitated by Aileen Wagner. Teachers will take away many insights, ideas and possibilities for supporting diverse populations, and tools to assist with building connection and community within a group.

Have you ever thought you’d love to do something like this but are worried you lack the knowledge, skills or experience? If so, this session is for you! Come learn from someone. Prior to changing school divisions, I built my previous school’s drama program from the ground up, and I'm here to show you how to do the same thing! This session includes a how-to seminar covering a wide variety of topics, as well as break out sessions for networking and problem solving so feel free to bring obstacles which you are facing.

The day will start with an overview of the following: how our program was built over 6 years and how you can do the same, budgeting & timelines, costume/set/prop design & creation, ticket sales, and creating a culture of success. Don't worry if you could not attend last year, there will be a brief overview AND you will be given access to all documents from last year's session and this year's session as well.
