SEAM - Student Engagement and Motivation workshop
Location:
KEDC- LEX
July 23, 2019 - 8:30am to 3:30pm

  

Program Description

My strategies help you build student motivation which in turn increases student participation. Fun, engaging lessons are at the heart of building a classroom that has participation from all students. We also introduce methods for creating an inquisitive classroom, where students are free to question the material and explore the curricula in greater depth. By honoring student voice, giving them more opportunities to respond to instruction and presenting the material in several modes and intelligences of learning, we greatly increase the chances our students will discover more ways of learning. If we teach to their strengths and help them overcome their weaker areas, they will have more tools for their own learning.

*This is DAY ONE of a THREE-DAY series
 
 
Supporting science teaching and learning in schools and districts
Three-day Training Series: Sep. 3, Oct. 29, Nov. 26
Administrators will build capacity to support and encourage science teaching as envisioned by the NGSS in your building and district

Leave this Academy with:
  • A better understanding of the practices
  • An approach for supervision specific to science
  • Resources and rubrics to evaluate instruction and encourage growth in your science teaching staff

Registration https://www.rsvpbook.com/event.php?507773

 

PIMSER is pleased to bring you a series of three sessions focused on science for principals, curriculum supervisors, special education coordinators, instructional supervisors, instructional coaches, and superintendents.  The sessions will work to develop your capacity to lead, support and encourage science teaching as envisioned and required by the Kentucky Academic Standards for Science in your building and district. This training has been vetted through a National Science Foundation supported grant.  Kentucky leaders now get to benefit from this work and the resources that were developed.

Goals of the Academy:
  • Help you understand that the science looks different than previous standards – not just the memorization of content but the actual doing of science
  • Increase your familiarity with the science practices as a way to think about what is and is not occurring in your school(s)
  • Support your ability to notice the science practices when watching science instruction – start to move beyond just general feedback to include science specific language that can support improved classroom teaching practice and student learning
  • Practice providing your teachers with feedback around the science practices
  • Provide you with resources to work with your teachers moving towards the new standards – introduce instructional strategies and revise a current science lesson
  • Plan a process to support your teachers in moving towards effective implementation of the science practices

Administrators may bring a lead teacher with them to the final meeting.  They will receive resources and ideas to up their expertise when implementing KAS for Science in their classroom, as well as ways to support the administrator as they design a plan for sharing with other teachers. 18 hours of EILA credit available

Cost
$300
Includes all training materials and three meeting days
