Prioritizing SEL: Tips to Transition Students Back to School with Ease and Confidence
Presented by Jennifer Wells, Social Emotional Learning and Student Development Coordinator at Round Lake Schools
Teaching students how to successfully navigate complex emotional and social situations is at the heart of Social Emotional Learning (SEL). Given the impact of overall student well-being on learning outcomes, school districts are committing more time, money, and resources into integrating SEL into classroom and the school environment. Teachers have a rare opportunity to support students in developing relational, communication, and collaboration skills that help students be successful in every aspect of their lives.
Join us for a free workshop as we explore what SEL is, why it’s critical to getting students back on track, and what you can do to develop these skills within your daily classroom instruction!
Math is Everywhere: A Cross-Curricular Road Map
Presented by TBA
While math is typically taught “in isolation” within the classroom, it can be integrated into other content areas like literacy, science, and writing. Think about it. Math is something we encounter and utilize every single day in the real world. A cross-curricular approach to math helps students develop a better understanding math as it appears in and relates to everyday life. When math is incorporated into subjects like literacy and science, it encourages students to think more profoundly about the concepts and ensure they are prepared to solve problems and explain their reasoning.
Join us for a free workshop to explore the research behind a cross-curricular approach to math and how it benefits learners. Don’t miss a chance to discover practical tips and strategies for implementing math across all subjects!
A Dynamic Duo: Multisensory Literacy and the Science of Reading
Presented by Kristin Gigliotti
As educators, there is no greater mission than ensuring all students are successful, joyful readers. The Science of Reading and Multisensory Learning are front and center in literacy instruction today. What exactly do these terms mean and how do they work together? How do they translate from theory to classroom practice? Watching students learn to read is magic but knowing how they get there is science.
Join us for a free workshop to deepen your understanding of the science of reading and multisensory literacy and how to apply this “dynamic duo” in your classroom or school.
Using Hands-On Tools to Monitor Progress and Assess Students in Math
Presented by Skip Fennell
Formative assessment is a powerful tool for improving teaching and increasing student learning, particularly in mathematics. Using hands-on tools to assess students is not only a more accessible and equitable way to monitor progress, it’s a more effective way to assess. For many students, hands-on tools are a way to make their thinking visible. By including manipulatives as a routine part of assessing students, teachers create opportunities for insight.
Join us for a free workshop to explore why utilizing manipulatives and hands-on tools to assess benefits both the learner and the teacher and learn how to implement and manage a hands-on approach to assessing your students in math!
Mastering Manipulatives Mini-Series
Join us for a brand new, mini-webinar series all about manipulatives! Manipulatives are important tools that helps students build connections in both math and literacy. When used properly, manipulatives become a tool students use to make sense of complex or abstract concepts. They also create learning opportunities that engage both sides of the brain which helps students get to a much deeper level of understanding and meaning.
