6152 Essential Instructional Practices for Pre K
Jan 19
12:00 PM to 3:15 PM
Events

Research has shown that literacy knowledge and skills developed in the preschool years predict later literacy achievement. To ensure young children are well-prepared to reach the “reading-by-third grade” mandate, it is vital that prekindergarten programs implement the ten research-based, best practices included in the GELN document, Essential Instructional Practices for Early Literacy, PreK. This workshop will provide an introduction to these essential instructional practices and will explore developmentally appropriate strategies for implementation in early childhood programs. The intended audience is: GSRP PreK teachers and associate teachers, early childhood specialists/coaches.

Jan 22
8:30 AM to 2:00 PM
Events

As part of administering GSRP, the Intermediate School District (ISD) has designated an Early Childhood Contact (ECC) who will connect with the programs through the ECS to work toward an ISD-wide plan for continuous quality improvement.  That person is the ECS.  The ECC will collect data on the curricula, screening and child assessment tools used in the area. The ECC will be able to access, aggregate and analyze Online PQA information which can be used to support those serving in the ECS role across the ISD. This information along with PQA results will be used to inform the creation of an area-wide professional development plan.  As a person knowledgeable of the ECSQ-PK, GSRP requirements, the curriculum, ongoing assessment, and PQA results, the ECS advocates for the program when decisions are being made so all decision makers are aware of best practices for operating a high-quality program.  To ensure continuity across the county, the ECC meets with the ECS a minimum of three times a fiscal year.  The audience for this course is the Early Childhood Specialist for the Great Start Readiness Programs in Wayne County (Subrecipients of WRESA).

Math Training PD will be added to this session from Noon - 2pm with lunch provided.

6021 Developing Clear Learning Targets & Success Criteria
Jan 23
8:30 AM to 3:00 PM
Events

Clarity around what it is we want students to know and be able to do has a huge effect size on student achievement. This involves much more than simply putting "I can..." in front of a benchmark or standard and putting it on the board. This session will examine the best practices for developing clear learning targets and provide ideas and practices for embedding them within the learning process. Participants will receive a book along with their registration. This course is designed for teachers who will implement these practices and administrators who will determine their effectiveness. Register online with credit card or submit registration form below to register with check, purchase order.

6022 Next Generation Science Exemplar (NGSX)
Jan 24
8:00 AM to 3:00 PM
Events

The Next Generation Science Exemplar (or NGSX) is professional learning conducted in face-to-face study groups. Participants explore the major ideas found in the NRC Framework and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), developing tools and strategies to take this new vision back into their classrooms.

 

The focus of NGSX is integrating three-dimensional learning into science classrooms, in which teachers support students in using science and engineering practices to develop, apply, and refine disciplinary and crosscutting ideas. Teachers engage in these practices and investigate classroom cases to explore how to bring these approaches into their own classrooms.

 

Study groups work through the nature of modeling, support for classroom discourse, and difficulties students face in reasoning about the nature of matter. Participants consider how they can support the vision of the Framework.

 

These sessions include use of a web-based learning and response system. Please bring a laptop or tablet to all sessions if possible.
6019 Know Your Data: User-Friendly Tools for Measuring Student Growth

6019 Know Your Data: User-Friendly Tools for Measuring Student Growth
Jan 24
8:30 AM to 11:30 AM
Events

Teachers and administrators regularly review results from large-scale commercial assessments such as the ACT, SAT, PSAT, and NWEA to name a few. But the dilemma facing educators is that the majority of formative and summative assessments occur on a regular basis outside the mandatory testing window. There is a paucity of guidance, however, about how exactly a teacher is expected to measure growth with her student data. This course is specifically designed to address this dilemma. For all intent and purposes, the term student growth can be defined as the difference in student scores between two or more assessments (e.g. pretest/posttest). And measurement is simply the assignment of numbers to objects according to a set of rules. This course will also permit a classroom teacher, with a minimal mathematical background, to use the step-by-step methodology and user-friendly freeware in order to measure student growth using teacher-made assessments. Participants will learn about basic assumptions, coding the data, identifying the appropriate analytic approach, and the ability to interpret the findings in order to guide instruction. Finally, participants will practice presenting the results to multiple stakeholders. The audience for this course includes district administrators, principals, school improvement leaders and teacher leaders. Participants should bring a laptop computer in order to participate.

5976 MTSS in the Mathematics Classroom (Cohort1)
Jan 24
8:30 AM to 3:00 PM
Events
**ATTENTION: The MTSS in Mathematics K-2 (addition and subtraction) has been updated to include grades 3 and 4 (multiplication and division) because of grants funds that came available. Please refer to the K-4 flyer for updated information.***
MTSS in Mathematics is meant to support teams of K-2 teachers and an interventionist to implement MTSS for addition and subtraction in the early elementary. Topics focus on an classroom instructional framework, progress monitoring of student strategies, diagnostic assessment, and small-group interventions for students who need further support. Because a successful MTSS program includes coherent instructional foci for students in all tiers, we invite teams of teachers to collaborate in this professional learning experience. Teams are made up of K-2 classroom teachers (one of each) along with the interventionist who works with those teachers’ students.

One full day of attendance is required to receive a certificate. In addition, participants will receive an overview of legal issues and legislative mandates, puberty, data on adolescent sexual behavior, risk factors of early onset of sexual activity and strategies designed to impact them. To gain maximum benefit from this course, teachers should know what reproductive health and/or HIV/AIDS curriculum has been approved by their local school board.

6081 MTSS in the Primary Classroom: How Do We Assess & Progress Monitor Student Growth in Literacy
Jan 24
9:00 AM to 3:00 PM
Events
One component of a successful MTSS framework is evaluating what we know about effective literacy practice. Teams of teachers and interventionists will explore ways to use common language and practice in aligned and meaningful ways during reading and writing workshop and small-group interventions. The Fountas and Pinnell Prompting Guides, Part 1 and Part 2 will be used as a guide for our work. The guide is designed to provide language and actions that support the reader’s construction of an efficient network of strategic activities for processing text and writing stories. Jennifer Serravallo’s The Literacy Teacher’s Playbook Grades K-2: Four Steps for Turning Assessment Data into Goal-Directed Instruction, will support participants in how to observe and record reading behaviors, analyze and interpret the multiple data points, and decide what skills and strategies should be taught to reach individual literacy goals. The intended audience is teams of K-2 classroom teachers and certified interventionists.
