SIOP: Strategies Component ›
Of all the SIOP components, Strategies is sometimes described as the most challenging because of its focus on the cognitive, metacognitive, and language learning strategies that learners apply flexibly when reading, writing, and speaking. Whereas some students master a variety of language and learning strategies almost effortlessly, other students, including English learners, benefit from explicit instruction and frequent opportunities to practice and apply strategies while reading, writing and talking about a variety of texts and topics. During this webinar, Dr. MaryEllen Vogt will demystify the Strategies component, while sharing practical, use-tomorrow ideas and activities that will develop elementary and secondary English learners’ (and other students’) strategic thinking abilities.

Problem-Based Learning - Supporting Productive Struggle ›
Although there is not universal consensus on what mathematics content should be taught, there is consensus that whatever is taught should be taught with understanding. And, we know from research that there is an instructional model for teaching mathematics that helps all students build understanding. That model begins with selecting and implementing tasks or problems that elicit productive cognitive struggle. Productive struggle means students use reasoning and problem-solving processes to select, apply, and connect prior knowledge to new mathematical ideas; connecting prior knowledge to new ideas is the foundation for understanding. This session will illustrate the kind of instruction that elects cognitive struggle, it will illustrate signs that students are engaged in productive struggle, and it will illustrate ways teachers can support students in productive struggle.

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.
