Dinner will be provided.
Following dinner, there will be presentations and conversation with the experts.
Teaching Students to ask Questions about Text – Sheila Thompson
Students quickly become accustomed to answering questions that teachers ask, depending on teachers to direct their thinking. Teaching students how to design good questions about all forms of text helps them become independent thinkers and self-directed learners.
A Lantern for Navigating Through the Passage: On Demand Writing Strategies – Lisa Bartley
We will explore different mini-lessons to help students annotate, analyze, and utilize a passage to ensure success on On Demand writing prompts.
Together is Better in the Common Core – TC Cherry Literacy Team
TC Cherry has partnered with the WKU Writing Project to improve the teaching of writing in their school. They have been participating in very structured professional development, a common text book study and a book study of choice. They will discuss what they have been doing and the benefits of their efforts as they continue to work together.
