Webinar: Reading for the Rhetorical Situation
​Reading for the rhetorical situation requires students to go much deeper than just identifying the main ideas. Students need to focus simultaneously on the author's purpose, the message/text, the context for writing, and the audience it is addressing. It is not just what the text says, but how the text says it. This webinar will review the elements of the rhetorical situation and provide some strategies for helping students increase their rhetorical reading comprehension. ​

Webinar:'E'ngineering in the STEM Classroom
The 'E' in STEM can sometimes be scary for teachers as they begin to embrace STEM teaching and learning, but fear not! Engineering is all around us and in practically everything we do and the best part… students are naturally born engineers! The National Research Council's Framework for K-12 Science Education states, 'Any science education that focuses predominately on the detailed products of scientific labor – the facts of science – without developing an understanding of how those facts were established or that ignores the many important applications of science in the world misrepresents science and marginalizes the importance of engineering.' In this webinar we'll look at how students should learn how science is used through the engineering design process, and how they come to appreciate the distinctions and relationships between engineering, technology and applications of science.

Research, Information, and Writing Fluency: Developing Independent and Engaged Researchers and Writers
SAVE THE DATE!
Registration for this event will open on August 5, 2015.
Please return to Calendar of Events to sign up at that time.

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!

Webinar: K-2 Writing Foundations Webinar Series- Handwriting Fluency
This one hour webinar is the second in a series of four webinars focusing on K-2 Writing Foundations. This webinar will focus on the research and evidence that handwriting practice done in short intervals supports the acquisition of reading skills and promotes writing fluency. Similar to the idea of fluency in reading aids in comprehension of text, as young writers develop handwriting fluency, they can then focus their attention on generating and organizing ideas. Keyboarding skills will also be part of the discussion. Please consider attending with a friend to facilitate discussion.
You might want to consider downloading and saving the documents in the materials library so you will be familiar with them. They will be available until the webinar but not after the webinar has ended.

Participant is eligible for 1 hour of Professional Development credit.

Registration for this event will open on August 5, 2015.
Please return to Calendar of Events to sign up at that time.

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

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.

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:
