Webinar: High School Progression Series: Graphs
The AZCCRS-Mathematics standards were developed using research-based learning progressions. Progressions capitalize on how mathematical knowledge, understanding, and skills develop over time. Thus, the standards are designed around coherent progressions from grade to grade and represent a cohesive body of mathematical knowledge. During this webinar we will: • Consider content from previous grades that supports development of content understandings of graphing at the high school level. • Consider how learning progressions support focus and can improve grade level instruction through stressing coherence.

Research, Information, and Writing Fluency: Developing Independent and Engaged Researchers and Writers
Research has always been a cornerstone of human learning and achievement. Teaching students to take control of their own research is critical if we want them to become independent, engaged, and active learners rather than passive receivers of information. How can we engage students in the research process so they see it as a relevant, transferable skill and not an assigned school task?

Students must be able to navigate, comprehend, and organize information confidently if we want them to participate in academic conversations and to create and defend sound arguments in a variety of disciplines and careers. This is especially important as we increase our demand for the solid incorporation of evidence and reasoning into student work in all content areas.

Not only do students need to know how to strategically navigate and evaluate information from multiple media formats, they need to be able to use that media to strategically and collaboratively share information as well. Does how we teach 'research' need to change? How has it evolved?

All participants will receive Christopher Lehman’s book, Energize Research Reading and Writing. While the book is geared to grades 4-8, the strategies and ideas are completely relevant to the upper grades as well.

PLEASE BRING A DEVICE TO DO RESEARCH!

Target Audience: grades 4-12 classroom teachers.

Participants will be eligible for 5.5 hours of Professional Development credit.

Integrating Mathematical Practices in Instruction, Grades 6-12
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 engage with the 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 when Mathematical Practices are integrated with content,
• analyze teacher actions and instruction that supports students’ development of Mathematical Practices,

Be ready to work in collaborative groups.

Special Engagement: Using Socratic Seminar to Meet AZCCRS with Diana Green
Using Socratic Seminar to Meet Arizona's College and Career Ready Standards for Listening, Thinking, Speaking, Reading and Writing

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 Arizona's College and Career Ready 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.

Webinar: Rhetorical Grammar Instruction for Authentic Writing
​This webinar will focus on how we as educators can present grammar as a strategic, conscious choice writers make when creating a text for an authentic task, purpose, or audience. We will discuss ways to make grammar study a part of the writing process, and not just 'rules' that are applied after the text is written, and encourage students to see how the grammatical choices we make represent relationships between writers and readers. ​Grades 6-12

Special Engagement: Using Socratic Seminar to Meet AZCCRS with Diana Green
Using Socratic Seminar to Meet Arizona's College and Career Ready Standards for Listening, Thinking, Speaking, Reading and Writing

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 Arizona's College and Career Ready 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.

Making Sense of Science – Energy Course (Grades 6-8) Five-Day Event
Making Sense of Science – Energy Course (Grades 6-8) Five-Day Event
This 5-day course will be split across 2 weeks
Thursday, September 24, Friday, September 25, Saturday, September 26,
Friday, October 9, and Saturday, October 10, 2015


Developed by WestEd, this comprehensive professional development course for science teachers provides all the necessary scaffolds for building a scientific way of thinking in teachers and students, focusing on science content, inquiry, and literacy. This 5-day course will be split across 2 weeks.

This course is about making sense of the science of energy. It focuses on science, questioning, and literacy — all in the service of building a scientific way of thinking and instilling that way of thinking in students. Through the course activities, you’ll learn practical, relevant strategies for teaching science — how to guide hands-on science learning, support evidence-based discussions, and help your students develop the academic language, habits of mind, and communication skills necessary for sense making and scientific reasoning. As a way to investigate teaching, you’ll read and discuss cases written by teachers for teachers. The cases, which include rich examples of student work, allow you to grapple with science content, navigate typical teaching challenges, and experience authentic dilemmas that occur when teaching energy to students. Although this course is designed for middle-school science teachers, it is open to all grade levels of science teachers interested in further developing their own conceptual understanding of energy and how their students learn about energy.

September 24-26
• Day 1 seeks to answer 'What is energy?' and explores the various kinds of energy that keep our world going.
• Day 2 identifies the various types of potential energy and helps to clarify what it really means to have potential energy.
• Day 3 explores the various ways in which heat energy is misunderstood and the ways in which scientists define and talk about heat energy, how it’s transferred, and how it affects our world.

October 9-10
• Day 4 provides a systematic explanation for how and why conservation of energy is possible.
• Day 5 explores the complex interactions between food and organisms.

Participants will be eligible for 35.0 hours of Professional Development credit.
