Setting the Standard for Project Based Learning
Book Study

Project based learning (PBL) is gaining renewed attention with the current focus on college and career readiness and the performance-based emphases of Common Core State Standards. It’s not enough to just “do projects.” Today’s projects need to be rigorous, engaging, and in-depth, and they need to have student voice and choice built in. Such projects require careful planning and pedagogical skill.

The authors take readers through the step-by-step process of how to create, implement, and assess PBL using a classroom-tested framework. Also included are chapters for school leaders on implementing PBL systemwide and the use of PBL in informal settings.

10 Mindframes for Visible Learning
Book Study
Note: Books studies are available to RCAS employeea only. 
The original Visible Learning research concluded that one of the most important influencers

of student achievement is how teachers think about learning and their own role.
The ten behaviors or mindframes that teachers need to adopt in order to
maximize student success include:

·        
thinking of and evaluating your impact on
students’ learning;

·        
the importance of assessment and feedback for
teachers;

·        
working collaboratively and the sense of
community;

·        
the notion that learning needs to be
challenging;

·        
engaging in dialogue and the correct balance
between talking and listening;

·        
conveying the success criteria to learners;

·        
building positive relationships.

This practical guide, which
includes questionnaires, scenarios, checklists, and exercises, will show any professional exactly how to implement Hattie’s mindframes to maximize success.

In this workshop teachers will look at schools from the perspective of the parent/family. We will flip our assumptions and impressions to explore what families of today often think and say about public schools. We will look at our own practices and decipher if we are unknowingly sending a “back-off” message to our families. Self-reflection and discussion will be highly encouraged as we think of ways we can engage families who might otherwise never set foot in the school. We will find ways to entice them back into school events and conferences. What do we really know about these kinds of families? How do we partner with them to help their child succeed? How can we build a relationship with them so we are perceived as a team? These questions and more will be answered as we tackle the topic of parent/teacher communication. *4 Hours of ONLINE class using CANVAS* More
