Distinguished Speaker Series: Planning a Year Around Workshop Teaching: Grades 5-12

Recent research indicates that students are reading less as demands for literacy increase across all professions. Now is the time for the artful teaching of reading: to teach young readers the moves necessary to make sense of difficult texts; to motivate students to read independently; to create classrooms that inspire students to be lifelong readers. When it comes to teaching young writers, how do we move students beyond the “flat and stagnant” writing that has become the normal in many schools? Our democracy demands engaged writers who craft voices that are heard and valued. The conditions we create in classrooms build trust in young writers, thus increasing their willingness to take risks.

When: April 12, 2018, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Where: Contra Costa County Office of Education Board Room, 77 Santa Barbara Rd., Pleasant Hill, CA 94523

Exploring Phenomena: Using Science to Figure Things Out

The NGSS require a shift from “learning about” to “figuring out.” How did the Grand Canyon form?” “Where did the mass of the apple go when I threw it in the compost?” These questions about real-world phenomena are great examples of how science can be used for figuring things out. In this workshop attendees will participate as learners in a phenomenon-based lesson, then unpack the experience with fellow educators. Participants will gain strategies to help choose phenomena and craft essential questions that can guide students to figure things out about the real world.

When: May 8, 2018, 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Where: Contra Costa County Office of Education, 77 Santa Barbara Rd., Pleasant Hill, CA 94523

Registration: $110, continental breakfast and lunch will be provided
