9:10am CDT

Mind, Body, and Effective Action
Mindfulness and growth mindset are two areas that are getting a great deal of attention in education today. Both theories stress children think internally about how their bodies and minds respond to activities. This presentation was developed to share activities and a curriculum with all educators that could help students learn to reflect on how they feel in a variety of situations. Teachers will also be given some helpful tips in working with students throughout the building. In addition, activities to jump start learning will also be reviewed.

Putting Students First: Navigating the Complexities and Civic Issues That Schools Face in 2019
Navigating the classroom in the tumultuous times that we face in America, can be a terrifying place for educators, students, and administrators alike. As the world changes, we as educators and administrators need to be prepared to change along with it. This workshop will provide all participants with the tools and ability to teach using many of KSDE’s Foundational Structures.

Attendees will participate in several lessons including a Teaching Tolerance lesson called: "Speak up at School." This addresses how to respond when you hear students or fellow educators speak with inappropriate bias of any kind.

Lara and Dasan will demonstrate how to create a school culture of Kindness and motivate students to be civically engaged.

Participants will leave with lessons and materials for their classroom.

Reading Instruction for Every Teacher
In this session, we will introduce the Science of Reading and help teachers connect the importance of the foundations of solid reading instruction to their current practice. We will work collaboratively in small grade level groups to design instruction that teachers can take and use immediately in their classrooms. Teachers will plan and produce effective reading instructional strategies that will aid in the outcome of improved reading comprehension for all students.  This session will offer grade-appropriate strategies for all teachers in grades K - 12. PLEASE BRING A LAPTOP/ELECTRONIC DEVICE.

Movin’ to the Standards
Student activity and health are positively correlated with academic outcomes as evidenced by current brain research. However, finding time to build in student physical activity can be challenging for schools. This session will provide numerous examples of how physical activity can be easily incorporated into lessons that meet standards in numerous content areas for all grade levels without the loss of instructional time. Also, the presenters will address how physical education classes can integrate other subject matter to enhance the learning environment.

9:10am CDT

Navigating Dyslexia in the Public Schools
Educators will begin by learning about Dyslexia, how it impacts a student's acquisition of reading and the prevalence. Trainers will further provide educators with an introduction to the Science of Reading and the importance of explicit instruction and supporting the learner in the classroom. Opportunities for available training and online resources will be shared to further those engaged in learning more about evidence based practices. The workshop will conclude with an opportunity to view screening data and explore the strengths, limitations, and pitfalls in the flagging process, along with diagnostic tools to confirm needs and the role of progress monitoring to measure progress. Educators are encouraged to bring a sample of universal screening data for a specific class or if possible and entire grade level. The data will be viewed by the educator only as we take them through the process of making data-driven decisions, therefore confidentiality should not be a concern.
