Help your students dig deeper into text by provding supports that engage students and teach skills while providing pathways for them to demonstrate understanding. Then, extend the learning through student created content that showcases reading in a whole new way!

ClEvR Lab Reports Using Video
Labs are extremely important in any science class. Students should be able to share what they have learned in that experiment, but that doesn't mean that students must always write a full formal lab report. In this session, you will learn a creative way for students to demonstrate what they have learned from the lab by creating a quick and easy video featuring a ClEvR argument (Claims, Evidence, and Reasoning). Students will be practicing their Common Core speaking and listening skills, the four Cs, and communicating their learning in modalities other than just writing.

Stop! Animate & Listen!
Having a tough time with ELL students demonstrating their knowledge of a subject area? Stop motion animation projects can be used across the content areas as ELL students create projects to demonstrate they understand or have mastered the concepts being taught. Creating a stop motion animation is an exciting way to engage all students in collaborative learning. They will need to write, use their math skills, oral skills and people skills (how do you to react when someone accidentally sits on your carefully crafted Erythrocyte (red blood cell) or gets a big grey thumb in the picture frame? ) Cut! Take two!

Literacy is MORE than Just Text!
How can we get struggling readers to dive into challenging text while focusing on cognitively heavy concepts? The abundance of multimedia like animated gifs and YouTube videos can allow us to scaffold the cognitive load of reading while focusing on concepts and topics like theme, context clues, and even close reading. After building a strong understanding of a concept through multimedia, students are now able to dive into more rigorous text and concepts and feel confident and successful.

Literacy is MORE than Just Text!
How can we get struggling readers to dive into challenging text while focusing on cognitively heavy concepts? The abundance of multimedia like animated gifs and YouTube videos can allow us to scaffold the cognitive load of reading while focusing on concepts and topics like theme, context clues, and even close reading. After building a strong understanding of a concept through multimedia, students are now able to dive into more rigorous text and concepts and feel confident and successful.

Having a tough time with ELL students demonstrating their knowledge of a subject area?

Creating a stop motion animation is an exciting way to engage all students in collaborative learning. They will need to write, use their math skills, oral skills and people skills (how do you to react when someone accidentally sits on your carefully crafted Erythrocyte (red blood cell) or gets a big grey thumb in the picture frame? ) Cut!

Students as teachers. Using Iron Chef and Pecha to tell the story.
The Expert Building Process. By using Pecha Kucha and Iron Chef Lesson Design, you can get students to become their own experts. Getting students to that point, however, is the process we are focusing on. Pecha Kucha and Iron Chef can work anywhere in the lesson plan process or unit and can be expanded from individual vocabulary to short stories, informational texts, and novels. Through this session, we'll become the experts at using these skills and, through it, make experts out of our students.

Writing can be a student's and teacher's worst nightmare with haunting phrases like "I don't know what to write about." In this session, we will put this phrase to rest as we flip the writing process. Starting with a video challenge, students collaboratively create a "script" and a video against the clock. Next, the writing is developed and expanded through the writing process, which will ultlimately lead to a student film festival and a published text.

Using STEAM Lesson Design to Differentiate Student Learning
Learn how to design STEAM (or any) lessons using Spark, Challenge, Information, Application. Why not flip your lesson and give the students something that will spark their interest? Issue a challenge, and let them go. THEN, give information when they find they have a need for it. Finally, they are ready to apply what they have learned.
