Have you ever seen math worksheets with dozens of the same kinds of problems or perhaps riddles at the bottom? 

Robert Kaplinsky believes that we should reconsider using worksheets like these and he has an alternative that is much better. In fact, it's the single biggest bang-for-buck change teachers can make in their classroom and he will tell you all about it. So, join Robert for a complimentary 45-min webinar: Why We Should Reconsider Using Worksheets (And What We Should Be Doing Instead).

In this 45-minute complimentary webinar, Caroline Sweet, author of  Patterns of Power en español: Inviting Bilingual Writers into the Conventions of Spanish, will show you how to use authentic Spanish literature to create invitational grammar lessons based on the work of Jeff Anderson. We will examine the components of the invitational grammar lesson cycle and look at literature for possible mentor sentences to use in your bilingual or dual language classroom.

Sometimes a new resource can help you refocus how you've traditionally looked at a topic and lead to greater student success. For example, most students and teachers think about subtraction as "take away." In this webinar, author Marian Small will show you some different ways to think about subtraction that do not expire and that lead to greater math success in grades K–8.

When you sit down with student readers without a map it is easy to get lost in the book and leave the conference feeling like you didn’t make the impact you had hoped for. Knowing the teaching focuses, goals, and what to look and listen for across the year helps you feel confident and prepared to help each reader grow. In this webinar, authors Gravity Goldberg and Renee Houser of Teacher’s Toolkit for Independent Reading share what a conferring road map is, why it is essential to have one, and a process for creating your own. Participants in this webinar will leave with:

  • A vision of how to prepare for independent reading conferences throughout the year
  • Examples of tools that create a conferring roadmap
  • Practical strategies you can use tomorrow in your classroom when conferring with readers
