Keynote: Ron Ritchart - Creating Cultures of Thinking
Effective teaching requires more than good planning and instructional design. It also requires attention to the social and cultural dimensions of the classroom in which those plans and designs are to be carried out.  This is particularly important as we think about the future of learning.  For new content, new technologies, and new methods to take hold, they must be fostered within a meaningful and receptive context. Since understanding of new content and use of new technologies can only be developed through concentrated thought and engagement with ideas, a classroom culture that supports and encourages this challenging and difficult work must be cultivated. Such environments not only aid the development of understanding, they also cultivate students’ dispositions toward thinking and provide them with the tools needed to learn, discover, and solve problems in the future. Through analysis of our personal experience and classroom video cases, this session will explore what it means to have and create a culture of thinking in the classroom or school.

Building Literacy in the Interpretive Mode
The interpretive mode is key to the development of world language proficiency. Consider the advantages of authentic text and identify ways to find useful texts for all levels of instruction. Work with strategies that require learners to engage meaningfully with both literary and informational texts. Consider how texts are used to promote acquisition of new vocabulary and language structures. Finally, strategies for assessing the interpretive mode will be highlighted. Bring an authentic text that you hope to use in a future lesson.

Gateway to STEM: Improving Spatial Skills - Part 1

The ability to visualize in three dimensions is a cognitive skill that has been shown to be important for success in engineering and other technological fields. For engineering, the ability to mentally rotate 3-D objects is especially important. Unfortunately, of all the cognitive skills, 3-D rotation abilities exhibit robust gender differences, favoring males. The assessment of 3-D spatial skills and associated gender differences has been a topic of educational research for nearly a century; however, a great deal of the previous work has been aimed at merely identifying differences. For more than two decades, Sheryl Sorby has been conducting research aimed at identifying practical methods for improving 3-D spatial skills, especially for women engineering students. This presentation details the significant findings obtained over the past several years through this research and identifies strategies that appear to be effective in developing 3-D spatial skills and in contributing to student success.

Seven Strategies of Assessment for Learning: An Overview
Research reviews over the last decade have heightened awareness of formative assessment’s power to increase student achievement, but not all that is labeled “formative assessment” is equally effective. In this session, we will review the Seven Strategies of Assessment for Learning, which organize research-based recommendations about formative classroom assessment practices into an instructional framework that can improve student achievement. We will then focus on the foundation of effective feedback and self-assessment: making learning targets clear to students.

Using Thinking Routines to Make Thinking Visible
The use of thinking routines and the idea of making students’ learning and thinking visible originated at Project Zero, Harvard Graduate School of Education, and has captured the interest of schools and teachers worldwide.  With such popularity, we sometimes get superficial use of the routines.  For example, teachers may use thinking routines as simple activities. However, the real power of thinking routines comes from using them to establish patterns of thinking in the classroom, but how do teachers move beyond the use of routines as good activities to their establishment as patterns of thinking?  What do classrooms look like when such patterns take hold?  In this interactive master class, participants will have a chance to learn how teachers are working with thinking routines to transform their classrooms into cultures of thinking, and to use the routines themselves to see how they work as tools for all learners.

Building Champions
The Main Philosophy behind my Building Champions model comes from the quote my father created when building his first state championship team "We are not champions because we win, we win because we are champions." Our goals as coaches are to first identify what characteristics of building champions we are wanting to instill in our athletes. -Qualities of a champion student-athlete. -Understanding the difference between being a champion and winning. -Goal Setting (short term and long term goals) -Remembering the importance of fun (creating enthusiasm) -Keeping focus on your goals as a coach, creating a 5 year plan for yourself and your staff. -Knowing your role as a coach and a role model and never forgetting that our number 1 goal is to build character and create opportunity for growth in our young student-athletes.

We’ll also look at ways to offer effective feedback so that it takes less teacher time.

Media Literacy and Argument
As our students are surrounded by constant digital communication, it is vital that we continue to prepare them to consume and produce this content with a critical eye. From infographics to blogs to visual presentations, each product requires a clear claim, reason and warrant. This session will address the areas where we can help our students not only judge these claims, but support those they wish to put forth in the digital world.

Workshop Title: Gateway to STEM: Improving Spatial Skills - Part 1 (repeat)

The ability to visualize in three dimensions is a cognitive skill that has been shown to be important for success in engineering and other technological fields. For engineering, the ability to mentally rotate 3-D objects is especially important. Unfortunately, of all the cognitive skills, 3-D rotation abilities exhibit robust gender differences, favoring males. The assessment of 3-D spatial skills and associated gender differences has been a topic of educational research for nearly a century; however, a great deal of the previous work has been aimed at merely identifying differences. For more than two decades, Sheryl Sorby has been conducting research aimed at identifying practical methods for improving 3-D spatial skills, especially for women engineering students. This presentation details the significant findings obtained over the past several years through this research and identifies strategies that appear to be effective in developing 3-D spatial skills and in contributing to student success.

A Design Approach to Problem Solving in Project Based Learning
The teaching of the skills of problem solving has long focused on a structured algorithmic approach. Design Thinking has also arisen as a trend in K-12 curriculums as a more abstract approach to product creation. What do these two approaches have in common and how can the skill from these disciplines be applied in education, especially in the area of project based learning?

From Pages to Prototypes: Frankenstein and Design Thinking will be a presentation on how to use design thinking in an English classroom. During the presentation, we will explain how to use the design thinking process to encourage my students to think deeply about characters and themes in Frankenstein. The first half of the presentation will involve the audience. We will take them through the first few steps of the design thinking process. During the second half of the presentation, we will share ways that we reinforced essential skills throughout the process to move from surface learning to deeper learning. At the end of the presentation, attendees will have time to ask questions and view some of the prototypes my students created. One other component we will share with attendees is the importance of having students reflect on their engagement, their own thinking as well as the entire design thinking process throughout the project.

Mindfulness at School
Define Mindfulness from its philosophical roots and yogic practice to application in other sectors of life (business, gov't, sports, politics, medicine and education). Explain the benefits of providing a foundation rooted in self-awareness, non-harming of self and others, resilience, and positive outlook about life through meditation. Show examples of how meditation can help students with anxiety, ADD, ADHD, aggression to develop coping strategies, to become rooted in self confidence and express their true nature despite outside pressure or negative feedback from the outside world. Demonstrate how mindfulness through yoga can help benefit students and teachers in daily academic life. Provide resources for teachers to try simple breathing and meditation exercises in the classroom to help improve attention, focus and memory recall during class. Illustrate situations at school where Mindfulness and personal meditation practice has helped me as a teacher create more opportunities to help enrich students' experience in every aspect of student life on campus. Through yoga practice and meditation, our mindless personal stories generated by ego are replaced by a more realistic present moment mindfulness that can produce powerful transformations. Instead of defaulting to our general tendency to avoid challenging situations or unsuccessful outcomes, meditation can help us to embrace them as a natural part of the learning experience at all levels of life. This positive mindset allows us to be empathetic toward ourselves, our students, parents and all the stakeholders on campus. A mindful environment is one that supports life long learners and envisions unlimited potential in all aspects of campus life.

Tangrams, Fractals and Mandala, a fresh look at design fundamentals.
This presentation explores a curriculum that helps to build student awareness of design fundamentals through the use of historic models. Participants will learn how students begin with projects focusing on the use of figure ground relationships and simple color theory using tangrams as the starting point. Fractals provide the opportunity to examine the intricate order witnessed in nature and space and students may interpret this order in abstract designs. The final unit of this course will explore the inherent beauty of the Greek Golden Rectangle and observe it’s use in architecture and the fine arts. Students will create works of art that employ the use of the golden rectangle. Parameters for projects include measuring borders, finding a central axis, creating radial balance and a host of other design criteria that cross over into the realm of science.

Computational Thinking in the STEM Classroom

The essence of computational thinking (CT) is thinking about data and ideas, and using and combining these resources to solve problems. Teachers can encourage students to “think computationally” by moving STEM projects beyond “using” tools and information toward “creating” tools and information. SImulations and modeling help students create information. CT asks students to identify a problem and harness the computer to help solve it. This session will explore how  tools like ODyssey, Algodoo, Desmos, and GIS can help students develop understanding. We will look at tools to collect and express data as well as tools to teach algorithmic thinking. Ways to use programming to solve and create will be considered.
