Fitting It All In: Balancing the literacy needs of our students with the schedules and structures we have

Fitting It All In: Balancing the literacy needs of our students with the schedules and structures we have

$199

with Maggie Beattie Roberts

How do we fit it all in? In this interactive workshop, Maggie will help teachers tackle this question by managing the workshop model in meaningful ways. From making the "right" choices to working with the 45 (or 90 or 120) minutes we have in the day. Maggie will offer practical support, schedules and resources to help each participant see a possibility of balance for the specific situation.

Drawing on her years of literacy staff development in schools around the country, Maggie will share the different ways teachers match methods of teaching with the needs of students, make strategic choices of balancing whole-class teaching and small group teaching, and get the most traction with each child's learning. 

Come prepared to think big picture (What are different ways to organize my flow of the week within reading or writing workshop?) and tackle the details (What system can I set up for students to practice the work of our small group lesson?).This workshop is designed to balance both content and time to work, giving participants time to process, plan and make materials to bring into their classrooms the next day!

Please bring materials you'd like to use. Possibilities include: 

-a digital device

-a year, month and/or weekly planner

-a copy of a unit you teach (could be the first unit of the Fall, or a current unit) 

-office supplies that make you happy (for me, nothing makes me happier than different sized Post-It notes and Sharpie markers!)

Curriculum Writing Bootcamp

$599

with EdAdvance Staff

Curriculum writing is one of the most expensive processes that a district can go through. The content of this session will help ensure that these curriculum investments result in a high quality sustainable product. Feedback for newly completed units following this training can also be built into the process to ensure fidelity of continued curriculum development. Build your capacity to develop high quality, standards-based curricula by:

Developing an understanding of the essential elements of high quality curriculum documents aligned to EQuIP Rubric for High Quality Units of Instruction;

Completing metacognitive deconstruction of the essential elements of a model unit; and

Developing a deep understanding of standards and practices, including unwrapping standards to identify priority standards in each unit and actualizing the standards through instructional practice.

*Curriculum Writing Bootcamp may also be customized based on curriculum audits to best meet the needs of your school/district and facilitated on site.

*Cost is for a team of 3-5 educators
