Aligning the Critical Areas of 6-8 Mathematics
Working in grade level groups, participants will examine the Common Core Critical Areas and align content standards to the critical areas. This exercise will help participants see how to integrate the mathematical domains
6-8 Math Teachers
Collaborative Planning and Pacing for Success (R)
In this session we will examine the process of moving to Common Core with a collaborative focus. We will go through the process that was used to create a collaborative and rigorous shift into the new standards while staying focused on high expectations and student growth.
K-8 Teachers, Coaches, Administrators
Come a Little Closer (R)
What exactly is close reading? How is it different from other reading instruction? Most importantly, how can you make close readers out of your students as they read and reread worthy text focusing on what it says and how it works engaging in the comparison with other texts and evaluation of the implications in their lives? Come take a closer look.
K-6 Teachers
Elementary Data Teams (R)
Participants will learn the basics of establishing the 6 Step Data Team Process based on the research of Douglas Reeves. Two principals will share how they have implemented data teams and the difference it has made in grade level discussions, teaching and learning, and differentiating instruction. This process not only improves student achievement, but builds capacity among teachers.
K-5 Teachers and Administrators
From Standards to a Coherent, Viable, and Guaranteed Curriculum
Join us as we share our journey from CCSS/ES to the development of a coherent, viable, guaranteed K-12 district curriculum for ELA, math, science, and social studies that is linked to the work of PLCs. We’ve seen the positive results of this effort in our EVAAS growth scores. This interactive session allows you to discover how you, too, can develop a written curriculum for your district using targeted professional development and a plan for teacher leadership.
District Administrators, Curriculum Coordinators, and Instructional Facilitators
Full STEAM Ahead
Burke County Public School has new Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts/Agriculture and Technology initiative in grades K - 12. Learn how students are participating in academically challenging lessons using technology to solve real-world problems.
K-12 Teachers and Administrators
How do you Schedule for Change?
American Renaissance
The daily instructional schedule is critical to bringing about positive student achievement results. At American Renaissance School, the leadership team engaged the staff in a change process to revamp the daily schedule to more effectively impact student achievement. The new schedule includes common planning time and intervention/acceleration time daily.
Administrators and Leadership Teams
Increasing Student Success – Strategies to Increase Graduation Rates
In this session, high school administrators and support staff will detail strategies and interventions used to target at-risk students to increase student attendance and performance and ultimately increase high school graduation rates.
High School Administrators, Counselors, Support Staff, and 9-12 Teachers
Leveraging Leadership Through Collaborative Walkthroughs
Leveraging district leadership maintains fidelity and consistency of instructional initiatives. Collaborative walkthroughs pair principals and instructional personnel with partner schools to complete instructional walkthroughs. The walkthrough team immediately debriefs and processes teacher practices and student learning with each other. This collaboration strengthens leadership, builds relationships, and fosters critical conversations.
Administrators, Curriculum Coordinators
Mathematical Practices Partnership
Avery and ASU
Avery County Schools and Appalachian State University have created an exciting partnership as part of providing teachers and students the expertise they need to be successful with the Common Core. Come join us as we discuss the steps we've taken to improve teacher understanding of the Common Core Math Standards, as well as working on the Mathematical Practices.
K-12 Math Teachers, Administrators
Secondary Mathematics Progressions: Pathways to Understanding (R)
Participants will closely analyze the standards for the Math I, II and III high school courses paying special attention to the content standards that are present in all three courses. Participants will be introduced to resources to help develop the mathematics within each course. Participants will engage in a mathematical task that explores specific concepts within the progression of common standards in high school courses differentiating the conceptual understanding for students at each level.
8-12 Math Teachers and Coaches
Supporting English Learners (ELs) in the Era of Rigorous Content Standards - NC Understanding Language Initiative (R)
‘Understanding Language (UL)’ project endeavors to amplify the critical role language plays in the Common Core era. This session will introduce ‘NC UL project’ and explore resources that exemplify high-quality instruction for ELs. This session will be delivered through various practical activities and participants will have ample opportunities to facilitate learning.
Administrators, College/University Educators, Principals, and Teachers
Supporting Growth for AIG Learners in Your District, School and Classroom
In order to most effectively support your AIG learners, it is imperative that AIG students' needs be addressed at the district, school, and classroom level. In this session, NCDPI will share the most critical factors that need to be in place at various educational levels in order to facilitate growth for your AIG students. We will have discussions focused on the most common myths associated with AIG learners as well as problem-solve challenges of developing the most effective AIG programming. Depending on your needs, we may also review the NC AIG Program Standards and current legislation regarding AIG learners.
District Administrators, School-level Administrators, K-12 teachers, AIG Specialists
The Best Technology Integration Tips and Tools from the NC Technology in Education Society Conference 2014
Alexander, Wilkes, and NCDPI
During this session, conference attendees from different districts will share the best technology integration tips and tools they learned about or shared during a presentation at the North Carolina Technology In Education Society conference this year. From Google Labs to Kahoot, each participant is sure to find at least one new technology idea to take back to their classroom or school.x
K-12 Teachers, Administrators, Instructional Technology Facilitators, Instructional Coaches
Using CTE Data to Drive Instruction
In our district, we are using the Elements platform to create Formative assessments in all CTE courses. Teachers are using a benchmark of 80% class average for proficiency to move on to the next benchmark. We will discuss how we have created the mindset and the process for insuring that students have a near 90% proficiency rating on their final assessments.
9-12 Teachers, CTE Administrators
