Feb. 10, 2020; 9 am - 3 pm at FEA
Presenter: George Guy

Schools and districts inherently have a commitment to equitable outcomes for all students but in the face of mounting access and achievement gaps how is this accomplished? How can educators use an equity frame to ensure equitable access and outcomes? Several components are essential to this process and will be explored in this workshop. These include:
· the use of data and data analysis protocols to uncover access and achievement gaps;
· the exploration and understanding of both individual and collective assumptions about achievement;
· the development of a shared commitment to an equity agenda by diverse stakeholders; and

Presenter: Marcos Navas, Founder and CEO of Hands on Coding
Fee: $149
With the world being so connected and collaborative, problems and setbacks, or “messy” problems, have also become widespread and abundant. However, with the right toolset, these “messy” problems can be used as opportunities to foster innovation and creative problem-solving. In this session, Marcos Navas will explore how to use IDEO’s Teachers Guild Human-Centered Design Thinking to take on these “messy” problems. We will explore ways Human-Centered Design can be used in the classroom, school, district, and larger systems to design solutions.

*Developing Mathematics Learners and Doers

Description:

Developing Mathematics Learners and Doers 
Feb. 5, 2020; 9 am - 3 pm at FEA
Presenter: Dorian Giorgio, Ph.D., FEA Consultant
Fee: $149
Students have become comfortable in following procedures and waiting out teachers during math instruction. But math education today stresses the need for students to become doers of math, requiring teachers to do more than simply leading students to the right answer. Research shows that students need to become engaged in productive struggle and mathematical discourse during lessons, while stressing that we are not learning math but are learning how to think like mathematicians. Providing lessons that offer these opportunities is a new focus for math instruction, but teachers are often frustrated when trying to plan lessons that offer these opportunities. This workshop will offer a lesson design that is structured to include productive struggle and maximize students in learning.

Description:

Disciplining Black Boys: Strategies for Disrupting the School to Prison Pipeline
Feb. 4, 2020; 9 am - 12 pm at FEA
Presenter: Robin Harden Daniels, Ed.D, FEA Consultant
Fee: $75
Since 1968, the US Department of Education has maintained a Civil Rights Database. This database documents vital school activities that includes disaggregated information on the rate and outcomes of disciplinary infractions. This data comes from school districts across the nation. It provides a clear pattern which confirms that Black and Latino students and students with special needs receive more severe and more frequent discipline than white peers who commit the same offenses.
This half day workshop explores the "whys?" behind this damaging phenomena and then transitions to a discussion on research-based and practitioner-confirmed alternative strategies to managing disciplinary infractions.
