ALL - K-12 - Holy Graphic Novels, Batman!: Using Comics & Graphic Novels in the Classroom
Limited Capacity seats available

This course is designed for teachers of all subjects and levels.
Graphic novels offer text in small chunks, accompanied by images that assist readers in understanding without having to decode the meaning of each word. Therefore, the text is more accessible to ELLs, SPED students, and other struggling readers because comprehension is not solely reliant upon words; in short, the images help bridge students’ gaps in understanding that is gleaned from the words alone.
By offering alternative and ancillary texts that increase understanding by delivering the content at struggling readers’ instructional level, rather than their frustrational level, teachers will scaffold the learning for SPED students, ELLs, and other struggling readers—supporting their comprehension and empowering them to discuss content on par with their peers.
Participants will gain an understanding of:
contemporary literacy research that validates the use of graphic novels to assist struggling readers.
ways to incorporate comics and graphic novels into teaching.
the support of literacy skills through comics in all content areas.
Participating teachers will gain access to an all-level, all-subject, online bank of lesson plans to help incorporate comics and graphic novels into their curriculum.

Creating a student-centered classroom
Limited Capacity seats available

Teachers will flip the traditional classroom script - as students take on more ownership in their learning, they will be more motivated and invested in the classroom. A student-centered classroom is creative and builds stronger relationships. Session 1 will focus on smaller tweaks to integrate in lesson planning to allow for more student voice and leadership in the classroom. Session 2 will focus on how to design larger projects (project-based learning) that give students more leeway to explore their interests and build higher-level thinking skills.

Is it any wonder some students are undermotivated at school or not performing to their full potential? This session will provide strategies for building a classroom where students can feel comfortable taking risks and learning alongside their classmates.

What leads to improvement in student motivation? What can brain science, psychology, even economics, teach us about what motivates us to learn and perform complex tasks? How can we translate research into pedagogical practice to get students to want to come to our class and get excited about learning? Why don't rewards (good grades, extra credit, candy) and consequences always work the way we think they will? Teachers will explore research on motivation and examine classroom practices that encourage or inhibit motivation to maximize their efficacy in the classroom .

Differentiation: You're already doing it!
Limited Capacity seats available

Differentiation is the hot-button eduword. But like much education speak, it means different things to different people, and many people don't really understand what it should actually look like in the classroom. Here's a little secret - you're probably already doing it. Even so, it's also one of those practices we can keep improving. In the first session, we'll solidify an understanding of what it is and the key characteristics that enhance differentiation. In the second session, we'll identify specific strategies that we can use to integrate those characteristics into instruction.

Data analysis: Breaking down some common misconceptions
Limited Capacity seats available

Ever used a "heat map" to identify TEKS for reteaching, or worried that the STAAR exam is "too easy" because students "only" need to answer 50% of questions correctly? The Director of Research and Evaluation will break down some common misconceptions in Round Rock ISD surrounding data analysis. Primarily, that assessment data cannot be interpreted without understanding the difficulty of the test. We will use a set of accessible sports analogies to understand these concepts in an exciting and engaging session.
