Coaching Conversations: How Middle Level Leaders Can Support Teacher Development (2 Hours)
Limited Capacity filling up

In this session, participants will explore three key conversations to have with teachers to support their development: post-observation feedback, looking at student work together, and purposeful planning sessions.  For each conversation, participants will engage in the process, reflect on the rationale, features, and goals of these conversations and discuss how they can be implemented in their role.  The session will begin by introducing the three types of conversations that will be explored and the rationale behind them.  Then, participants will analyze the features of a post-observation feedback conversation and plan their own feedback conversation using a template after watching a clip of a lesson.  Next, participants will be introduced to the Critical Friends Protocol and participate in one; afterwards discussing the implications for their practice.  Next, participants will discuss the questions that guide purposeful planning sessions (What is the learning goal of the lesson?  How will students achieve this goal? How will you know if students have achieved the goal and to what extent?) Throughout the session, participants have opportunities to reflect on their learning and consider implications for their role.  The session wraps up with participants creating their own action plan which will detail which conversations that want to implement and with whom.

Limited Capacity filling up

We will use the Design Thinking Process (https://www.interaction-design.org/literature/article/5-stages-in-the-design-thinking-process) to begin developing a solution-based approach to support teachers to use technology to enhance teaching and learning.
We will look at ways to:
  • differentiate and support teachers,
  • encourage and support the tech leaders in the school to drive change,
  • provide a safe space for people who are not confident to experiment.
Together, we will formulate a plan that will build social equity, encourage organic conversations, and gather and use data to develop a needs analysis and action plan. 
If we have time, I always enjoy participating in a technology slam, where people have 2 minutes to show the group a way they use technology.

A Creative Approach to Promoting Inquiry Within Common Core (2 hours)
Limited Capacity seats available

Creativity is just something you are born with.  Isn’t creativity what the Fine Arts people are supposed to work on?  It’s those kinds of comments that make the task of a Teacher Leader in charge of Thinking and Innovation both challenging and exciting.  At Nishimachi International School, we have embarked on a journey to the creativity processes into every classroom, and to ensure that students are thoughtful, creative and reflective when they approach all their curriculum areas.  We have done this systemically: by breaking down ‘creativity’ into four essential components, teaching each explicitly (thus embedding a shared language and understanding across classrooms) and then infusing these components into a range of curriculum areas.  This approach has led to the ‘inquirisation’ of our common core curriculum - allowing us to flip and strip objectives down to their raw, powerful question.  This workshop will give you an introduction to our approach to creativity, an example of how we have infused it into our mathematics program, and a chance to do some creative reflection into a curriculum area important to you.  And, it’s not just for the Fine-Arts people.This workshop will give participants 1) a practical understanding of four key components of creativity (fluency, flexibility, elaboration & originality) 2) applicable examples of how these components creativity can be infused it into a mathematics program, and 3) a practical plan on how to apply their learning back in their classroom.

A Living, Breathing Curriculum: Atlas and PLC at Work
Limited Capacity filling up

By leveraging the structures of Atlas and by effectively designing systems of curricular work within our school, AISG has been able to coordinate PLCs (professional learning communities), enhance conversations around the 4 primary questions of PLCs, and consistently map responses to these questions. Although AISG has different models of PLCs (vertically- and horizontally-aligned), Atlas has proved to be an efficient tool to support the different types of conversations they have around data, interventions and extensions for students, and curriculum development. In this session, participants will have the opportunity to interact with two different divisional approaches to using Atlas to map curriculum within a PLC framework, to reflect on the effectiveness of this system, and to consider the applicability of this system for their own school’s context.  

Key Take-Aways:
  1. How to use Atlas to map curriculum within a PLC framework. 
  2. Approaches to engage teachers in curriculum mapping both elementary and secondary levels.
  3. Applications to participants’ own school context.

Interdependence in Collaborative Learning 
Limited Capacity full

Interdependence in Collaborative Learning
  • How often do you assign a group project or group work to students in your class? 
  • How do you design interdependence in group learning? 
  • Is there an assumption that students have collaborative skills and know how to learn from/with each other? 
  • Is collaboration vital to the learning and to the success of the project/experience, or just a more interesting way to complete the project? 
  • How do you [the educator] assess individual learner growth and achievement in a group project experience? 

We will explore the dissection of collaborative learning and individual achievement to further understand practical approaches to identifying teacher needs in designing and assessing group projects/experiences.  Educators leave with practical approaches to supporting student learning and sanity in group/collaborative learning, and understand how to design interdependent group learning experiences that nurture and capture individual growth and progress.

What Parents and Students Need to Know About the Brain
Limited Capacity filling up

If learning is truly a collaborative endeavor, then it only makes sense that parents, teachers and students should have a mutual understanding of how the brain learns and processes information. In this presentation, which has previously been done for parents, Carol will explore the basics of brain-based learning, the role of nutrition and sleep, stress and its effect on learning and the brain and strategies parents (and teachers) can use to help students consolidate their learning. We will also address the special qualities of the middle-school brain and how this impacts our students' behavior and learning. Participants will walk away with at least five "good-to-knows" about how student brains focus, process and remember, and some practical strategies for how to apply brain research to their teaching.
