Presenting New Vocabulary So Students Will Remember It ›
Have you ever taught students new vocabulary one day only to discover they don’t remember it the next? Maybe you’ve had students who do well on a vocabulary quiz and then can’t use it just a few days later.

In this session we’ll look briefly at research says helps students remember new words and then we’ll explore a number of ways that we can introduce new words so students will not only remember what they mean but also be able to use those words when they speak or write.

Developing Conceptual Understanding: What, When, and How ›
There are two ingredients for developing conceptual understanding: computational proficiency and problem-solving skills. But what is meant by this? In this webinar, we examine five instructional strategies that can help students develop conceptual understanding: Building Skills and Procedures from Concepts, Using Problem-Based Teaching, Using Multiple Representations, Focusing on Reasoning and Communication, and Helping Students Make Connections between Concepts. Within each strategy, we'll explore examples of concepts, illustrate how concepts develop over time through number concepts like place value, and we will uncover the important outcomes for teaching understanding.

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.

Get Them Communicating and Assess Their Progress! ›
How can Spanish teachers build communicative proficiency in their students and know what progress they are making? This interactive session showcases many strategies and resources that can be used in all levels of Spanish classes. In addition, we will explore different ways to use projects and performance-based assessments to let students show what they can do with the language. Bring your ideas to share and leave with many new strategies and resources to use right away in your classes.

Mathematical Modeling Grades 6-12: Engage your reluctant learners! ›
Show in My Time Zone This session is geared for grade 6-12 math teachers. Dive into unique modeling lessons that present engaging, high-interest situations. Unlike traditional real-world problems, reality-based Mathematical Modeling lessons present students with the modeling conceptual category. Mathematics standards require that students identify essential variables in a situation, formulate a model from those variables, perform operations using the model, interpret the results of those operations, and validate the conclusions of those results.

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.

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.

Transitional and Intermediate Learners: Exploring Single-Syllable to Multisyllable 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

Real-life Experiences Using Authentic Spanish Resources ›
This session explores how to use authentic resources in the Spanish classroom to bring real-life language and culture to your students. We will discuss ways to support different types of students with appropriate tasks and focus on instructional strategies that make the use of authentic resources effective. Join us to see how the use of authentic resources can motivate our students to use Spanish in and beyond the classroom.

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.
