Rick Wormeli’s Teaching Institute
Dec. 12, 2018 - Conversations on Racism in Schools
It is uncomfortable to talk about race; many educators do not have constructive skills for such conversations. Join us for a frank and insightful look at how to conduct discussions and teacher professional development on racism in schools. Not just for professional development planning, this session explores how intended, and unintended, racism manifests in our schools and how schools can constructively respond to the problem. Stimulus materials and strategies for facilitating similar discussions at local schools will be provided.
Feb. 20, 2019 - Reflective Coaching: Thoughtful Practitioners, Not Ego-Guardians
This session provides dozens of practical tips for successful coaching interactions, and even more question/prompt stems to get teachers and students talking and analyzing, creating their own insights without feeling threatened. With cognitive coaching, we learn to honor what the other person brings to the table, and learn to facilitate their discoveries, not telegraph our judgments. Such facilitated coaching allows us to take deeper dives into practice and develop tools of respectful discourse. Don't miss this chance to improve your practice and help colleagues and students do the same.
April 24, 2019 - Getting to Know Your Students So You Can Actually Differentiate
Differentiated Instruction is responsive teaching, but we can't respond to students we do not know. Join us for a practical look at the tools and methods for getting to know your students quickly and throughout the year so you can make informed responses to their learning differences, and enhance the classroom experience for both you and your students.
