Interdisciplinary College and Career Ready Literacy Standards Training
Integrating the College and Career Ready 6-12 Literacy standards within Art, History/Social Studies, Mathematics, Physical Education, Science and technical subjects.

BY INVITATION ONLY

Workshop Goals:
Analyze the text complexity for discipline specific text and discuss strategies and considerations for their use to build conceptual understanding of discipline specific content. Examine text for academic and domain specific vocabulary words that require explicit routines for instruction. Participate in a close reading and text dependent question analysis activity of a discipline specific standards aligned text. Identify a text based argument and explore strategies to have your students participate in an academic argumentation session.

Special Engagement: From Keys To Literacy by Joan Sedita - The Key Comprehension Routine:Grades 4-12 - Karen Eades, Facilitator
The Key Comprehension Routine: (Grades 4-12)
This program embeds comprehension strategy instruction in all content areas with the use of existing reading and instruction material. The Key Comprehension Routine teaches students comprehension strategies for understanding and learning from an increasing 'staircase' of text complexity.
The Common Core Literacy Standards place significant emphasis on having teachers of all subjects and grades teach literacy skills. The Key Comprehension Routine provides instruction that all teachers can immediately use to teach these skills and activities:
• Comprehension skills: for close, analytic reading of both narrative and expository text
• Main idea skills: categorizing information and vocabulary, and identify/stating main ideas during reading
• Text structure knowledge: at the sentence, paragraph, and longer text levels
• Top-down topic webs: a flexible, foundational graphic organizer that can be used with all subjects
• Two-column notes: a note taking format supports active reading and that can be used for reading or lecture
• Summarizing: students comprehend, analyze, and synthesize information to develop a summary of the most important ideas in their own words
• Generating questions: students create and answer questions along a continuum of thinking using Bloom’s Taxonomy
• Cooperative learning: students learn, practice, and become independent with the comprehension strategies by working in whole group, small collaborative groups, and individually
When the program is adopted by a school or district, students learn a routine for active reading and writing that is consistent as they move from grade to grade and subject to subject.

Integrating Mathematical Practices in Instruction - Grades K-5

The eight Standards for Mathematical Practice describe the behaviors and habits of mind of mathematically proficient students. Mathematically proficient students make sense of problems, reason, construct arguments, model, use tools, are precise, use structure, and look for regularity. The Practices bridge content knowledge with application and understanding in mathematics. In order to effectively build that bridge educators need to experience these Practices and investigate the implications for classroom instruction.

In this workshop participants will:

• investigate the Mathematical Practices through a problem-solving lens.
• work collaboratively on math tasks to recognize and apply Mathematical Practices.
• watch videos to identify evidence of Mathematical Practices.
• analyze student actions that appear then Mathematical Practices are integrated with content.
• analyze teacher actions and instruction that supports students’ development of Mathematical Practices.
• discuss how Mathematical Practices support mathematics learning and understanding.
Please bring a fully charged laptop or mobile device and be ready to work in collaborative groups.

Cost will be $70.00 per person (book, continental breakfast, and lunch provided).

2014 Leading Change Exhibitor Registration
Our theme this year is 'Lead the Change, Create the Future', reflecting the essential leadership actions required of all Arizona educators to ensure the growth and success of our teachers and students. This conference will provide meaningful professional development in areas that address Arizona's College and Career Ready Standards implementation, educator evaluation, assessment, partnerships and performance pay systems.

As we face the challenges of implementing numerous statewide mandates such as the AZCCRS, revised educator evaluations, and increased expectations for early literacy, we have planned a conference that will provide multiple opportunities to learn from each other, build new professional relationships, celebrate our progress and reflect on our action plans.

Special Engagement: Using Socratic Seminar to Meet Common Core Standards with Diana Green
Using Socratic Seminar to Meet Common Core Standards for Listening, Thinking, Speaking, Reading and Writing - Phase 2

Socratic Seminar is a deep analysis of works of quality and substance by a group of students facilitated by a teacher. A text can be a piece of literature, informative text, such as social studies and science, historical documents, or a piece of art or music. The main goal is for students to build conceptual understanding of the texts and ideas by asking questions, citing evidence, and conversing with each other to make meaning. Often, seminars are followed with a reflective piece of writing. Effectively implemented, Socratic seminars enhance reading comprehension, speaking, listening and writing skills; a perfect vehicle for teaching the Arizona’s Common Core Standards.

This one day session will include:
• Explanation of Socratic seminar
• Participation in a group seminar
• Discussion regarding how to select seminar readings and develop seminar questions for classes at all levels
• Development of and participation in mini-seminars
• A packet of materials, a book, and resources

You will receive and use the following book in the session:
Teaching Critical Thinking – Using Seminars for 21st Century Literacy by Terry Roberts and Laura Billings

Presenter: Diana Green
Diana Green first began leading Socratic seminars while teaching middle school in Chattanooga, TN. She was trained at the Paideia Institute in Chicago where she learned the time-honored strategies that have endured the classic seminar structure. Diana currently works in Humboldt Unified School District where she has served as a principal, and is now Director of Education Services. Socratic seminar will always remain a passion in her repertoire of professional development for teachers.

Integrating Mathematical Practices in Instruction - Grades K-5

The eight Standards for Mathematical Practice describe the behaviors and habits of mind of mathematically proficient students. Mathematically proficient students make sense of problems, reason, construct arguments, model, use tools, are precise, use structure, and look for regularity. The Practices bridge content knowledge with application and understanding in mathematics. In order to effectively build that bridge educators need to experience these Practices and investigate the implications for classroom instruction.

In this workshop participants will:

• investigate the Mathematical Practices through a problem-solving lens.
• work collaboratively on math tasks to recognize and apply Mathematical Practices.
• watch videos to identify evidence of Mathematical Practices.
• analyze student actions that appear then Mathematical Practices are integrated with content.
• analyze teacher actions and instruction that supports students’ development of Mathematical Practices.
• discuss how Mathematical Practices support mathematics learning and understanding.
Please bring a fully charged laptop or mobile device and be ready to work in collaborative groups.

Special Engagement: Using Socratic Seminar to Meet Common Core Standards with Diana Green
Using Socratic Seminar to Meet Common Core Standards for Listening, Thinking, Speaking, Reading and Writing - Phase 2

Socratic Seminar is a deep analysis of works of quality and substance by a group of students facilitated by a teacher. A text can be a piece of literature, informative text, such as social studies and science, historical documents, or a piece of art or music. The main goal is for students to build conceptual understanding of the texts and ideas by asking questions, citing evidence, and conversing with each other to make meaning. Often, seminars are followed with a reflective piece of writing. Effectively implemented, Socratic seminars enhance reading comprehension, speaking, listening and writing skills; a perfect vehicle for teaching the Arizona’s Common Core Standards.

This one day session will include:
