Teach what we Assess and Assess what we Teach!

Target Audience: 5th-12th Grade US History and Economics Teachers

Join GADOE as we investigate ways to align GSE standards to instruction to assessment. Increasing EOC scores isn't always dependent on increasing teacher content knowledge or learning effective instructional strategies. Increasing EOC scores are dependent on aligning instructional practices and assessments to the cognitive demand of the standard. Come prepared to revise a future unit to align the standard, instructional activity and assessment to the cognitive demand of the standard and watch the EOC scores increase!

What Does Crucial Conversations Training Teach?
Crucial Conversations teaches participants how to:
• Speak persuasively, not abrasively
• Foster teamwork and better decision making
• Build acceptance rather than resistance
• Resolve individual and group disagreements

What Is a Crucial Conversation?
A crucial conversation is a discussion between two or more people where the stakes are high, opinions vary, and emotions run strong. These conversations—when handled poorly or ignored—lead to strained relationships and dismal results.

Need help providing supports for students? Equity in science education is difficult to achieve for all students without supports. However, all students can be successful in science courses with inclusive strategies that involve students in 3-D science. These inclusive strategies may seem daunting to many teachers who are trying to teach a course to a diverse group of students. This is designed to give teachers a crash course in some basic supports that can assist all students in being successful in science.

This will be a virtual session, log-in details will be provided at a later date.

Led by Jennifer Lempp, Educational Consultant, Author of Math Workshop: Five Steps to Implementing Guided Math, Learning Stations, Reflection, and More

Math Workshop is a differentiated approach to mathematics instruction that puts the student at the center of the learning environment.  Through the use of small group and whole class focus lessons and engaging learning stations, students experience mathematics through investigation.  Academic discourse and reflection are critical elements of the Math Workshop model – a place where students believe in themselves as mathematicians. Participants will build an understanding of what Math Workshop is and how to establish a workshop approach in their classrooms.  Exploration of the three structures of Math Workshop will allow participants to see the model through the lens of teacher and student. Activities to support differentiation will be shared, and connections will be made to current instructional practices. 

Mandatory minimum for registration must be met.
