Building a Teacher Effectiveness Network, Improving New Teacher Development and Retention
We will explore methods and strategies which empower leaders to address the problems of beginning teacher development and beginning teacher retention. We will review and discuss schools which have successfully achieved a 100% beginning teacher retention rate. Two specific questions will guide the presentation and the discussion. #1: Within a successful school which retained 100% of their beginning teachers, what did the teachers report that the administrative team did to support them and make them want to stay at their respective site? #2: Other than administrative efforts, what other factors influenced teachers to stay at this particular school site? Specific ideas for implementation will be shared.

Improving Academic Literacy K-12: Practical Evidence-Based Instructional Tools for EVERY Classroom
Large-scale meta-analyses (Hattie, 2009; Marzano & DuFour 2011) have concluded the key to accelerating student achievement is figuring out how to significantly improve typical daily instruction across the school. RTI/MTSS can potentially be the vehicle for this improvement IF leaders grasp the imperative of focusing squarely on improving core or Tier 1 instruction. This seminar will unpack key research supported practices found to improve academioc literacy (reading/writing/speaking/ listening/thinking) across all content areas including electives. Participants will experience concrete example strategies, critique unscripted classroom videos, engage in learn- by-doing simulations and explore free on-line resources. Major focus areas will include how to increase student engagement, build academic language/ vocabulary, and develop critical thinking and comprehension skills. Participants are encouraged to attend in school-based teams to maximize effective implementation.

SWITCH: Creating Successful Change
Changing behavior is hard.  Many times people look like they’re “resisting change” when actually they have no idea how to change.  Are we as leaders bringing clarity to what change is expected? Learn how to script a clear path to success. Is there an identity you can use that makes people feel strong and capable to face the challenge ahead?  Make the change a matter of identity rather than a matter of consequences. Based on her brothers' #1 New York Times bestseller, Switch: How to Change when Change is Hard, this session will present a framework for changing how people act, even in the toughest circumstances.
