Engaging Students through Authentic Mathematical Modeling ›
Many mathematical organizations including NCTM have challenged the mathematical community about the importance of mathematical modeling to a much greater extent than in the past. This session will highlight the key aspect of mathematical modeling by embedding tasks in the real world via multimedia in such a way that students first need to formulate the problem themselves. Once the problem is solved, students move back into the real world where the results are analyzed in context. It is through such genuine modeling tasks that students will be more engaged in their learning and become more proficient at problem solving.

Six Ways To Know If You Are Culturally and Linguistically Responsive ›
The session will answer this question for you: Am I culturally and linguistically responsive? The phrase "culturally and linguistically responsive" has now become cliché, the death knell in education. Cultural responsiveness benefits all students, in particular those students who have been traditionally underserved in the United States’ schools. Given its importance to empowering and inspiring educators to be responsive and for students to be academically successful, how do you know if you are culturally and linguistically responsive in your mind-set and skill set? Find out through a motivating, inspiring, and thought-provoking keynote address by Dr. Sharroky Hollie.

Developing Mathematical Thinking Habits Through Mathematical Practices in Kindergarten Through Grade 5 ›
In a world of technology with lightning-fast processing and vast memory capacity, what mathematical abilities are going to prepare students to be educated, productive, and employable members of society? The answer is that students must be prepared not only with the knowledge of important mathematical concepts and skills, but also with experiences in which they learn how to think about and use that knowledge in order to investigate, evaluate, make decisions, and justify choices.

On-Demand "What in the world is SIOP?" with SIOP author, Dr. MaryEllen Vogt ›
SIOP® stands for Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol, but what does that mean? What is the SIOP® Model, and how will it help my students? Where do I begin?
On-Demand Author Webinar: Academic Vocabulary: Making it Accessible for Challenged Readers with Dr. Freddy Hiebert ›
The differences in the use of language in books and in conversations can make comprehension challenging for many students. For example, books have many more rare words than in typical conversations. Even common words (e.g., force, right) can take on unique meanings in content-area and literary texts. New insights into the vocabulary of text have resulted from digital analyses of tens of thousands of school texts. Join Dr. Freddy Hiebert, as she explores insights from this work that, when applied in classrooms, can help challenged readers understand how words work, while simultaneously supporting substantial growth in their vocabularies
On-Demand Developing the “Full Package” of Procedural Fluency ›
As educators one of our primary goals is to build mathematical thinkers who will flourish in their math careers. This means ensuring students have developed the “full package” of fluency. Unfortunately, we often neglect two essential components of fluency. In this webinar we will experience five research-based strategies that address these neglected components of fluency and also
On-Demand Author Webinar: Increase Student Learning and Engagement Using Desmos with Dr. Eric Milou ›
Change the nature of school mathematics by engaging students in more active mathematical practices. In this webinar, Dr. Eric Milou will show you how to use Desmos to get your students experimenting, investigating and problem-solving! Bring depth to students’ learning and encourage them to ask questions rather than only looking for answers.
On-Demand Author Webinar: Counting: More than Just "1,2,3..." with Dr. Juanita Copely ›
Counting is more than memorization, more than one-to-one correspondence, and more than procedural skills. In this webinar, Dr. Juanita Copley will examine five principles for cardinality and counting.
On-Demand Words Their Way Author Webinar Series: Integrated Word Study - Spelling, Grammar, and Meaning in the Language Arts Classroom with Marcia Invernizzi ›
There are three reasons for adopting a word study approach to spelling, vocabulary, and grammar instruction in a language arts program: (1) Word study provides the link to integrate and apply word-level skills within the context of reading and writing; (2) word study builds on the fundamental cognitive learning process of focusing on comparing and contrasting and brings this process to conscious attention; and (3) word study is hands-on, student-centered, developmentally appropriate, and fun. Word-conscious teachers link word study to reading and writing, provide a flexible sequence of instruction that includes instruction in grammar, text analysis, and writing; and provide hands-on, repeated practice with words and ideas. Word study makes explicit how spelling patterns and word structures reflect meaning and use.
On-Demand Words Their Way Author Webinar Series: Transitional and Intermediate Learners - Exploring Single-Syllable to Multi-syllable Patterns in Words with Shane Templeton ›
There is more regularity to the spelling of sound in English than most students (and educators!) realize. Discovering this regularity benefits not only students' spelling but their reading as well. Beginning in the latter part of 1st grade for some children and in 2nd through 4th grade for most, this regularity may be discovered and learned through the exploration of within- and between-syllable patterns. Learners become aware of
On-Demand Words Their Way Author Webinar Series: Word Study with Emergent Bilinguals with Lori Helman ›
Many students speak one language at home and learn a new one at school, either as they participate in dual immersion programs or receive English learner support. These students are becoming bilingual and word study instruction can build on their capabilities in two languages. This session guides educators to tailor word study for students learning in a new language through techniques such as making connections across languages, identifying cross-linguistic challenges, and supporting students to use all of their linguistic resources.
On-Demand Words Their Way Author Webinar Series: The Critical Role of Word Meaning in Word Study with Shane Templeton ›
There is a reciprocal relationship between sound and meaning in word study. As learners explore letter and sound patterns in phonics and spelling instruction, the role of meaning in supporting that instruction is critical across all developmental levels. Teachers will learn how to guide this exploration as they address polysemy (multiple meanings), homophones and homographs, and Latin and Greek word elements. Learners will reflect on the meaning of known words to support their explorations of new sound and spelling patterns, and their learning of spelling patterns in turn supports their learning of unknown words through generative vocabulary learning.
On-Demand Words Their Way Author Webinar Series: Word Study for Phonics, Vocabulary, and Spelling Instruction: Activities and Routines, K – 12 with Donald Bear ›
Explore word study activities and schedules. We’ll sort together across the developmental continuum to see how phonics, spelling, and vocabulary are integrated in instruction. Concept sorts and other practices to teach vocabulary are introduced. Classroom routines for teacher-guided small group, and independent learning are introduced. Spelling routines are considered as part of word study to teach both phonics and vocabulary, a reconceptualization of how and why we teach spelling. Instructional practices with English learners are presented throughout.
