T&L: A Framework for Teaching "Controversial" Topics
Limited Capacity seats available

This session explores how teachers can integrate the teaching of “controversial” topics (e.g., racism) through concepts (e.g. meritocracy, race as a social construct, microaggressions) to create a more thorough exploration of content. Concretely, the presenters will explain concepts they have taught, the broader curricular and community contexts in which they taught the concepts, and engage participants in the same hands on activities the presenters did with their secondary students.

T&L: Differentiation and Collaboration for EL Students
Limited Capacity seats available

This workshop will share practical ways teachers can differentiate instruction, assignments, and assessments for EL students.  We will look at examples of differentiation strategies used in a variety of subject areas and grade levels. Through hands-on activities, participants will gain an understanding of the language abilities of ELs of each proficiency level, and practice differentiating lessons based on their students’ needs.  The information and best practices gleaned from this workshop will help any content-area teachers or EL teachers who hope to improve their EL students’ ability to be successful in the mainstream classroom.

T&L: Differentiated Instruction
Limited Capacity filling up

n this session, Shelly Parks, 2019 MO State Teacher of the Year and National Board Certified Teacher, will demonstrate strategies for differentiating instruction through content, process, and product.  Oftentimes, we differentiate by one of those three categories, but when teachers have an arsenal of approaches and strategies in their toolbox, students win.
