Most elementary and many secondary teachers are expected to teach their students reading skills; however, many feel unprepared or at a loss for what systems need to be in place to best meet the needs of their students. As a profession, we must consider how to support teachers and and create systems to best meet the needs of students. Coaches, Principals and teachers from Kansas schools will share their expertise as they have implemented a Multi-tiered Reading System and their suggestions for supporting teachers through the process.

The Skills that Matter: Embedding Assertiveness Instruction into Middle School Classrooms
This session will feature how one Kansas MTSS middle school provided assertiveness instruction schoolwide, including practice with feedback in numerous classrooms. Specific instructional practices and activities from various classrooms will be shared, as well as important take-aways for quality implementation. After embedding assertiveness instruction within course content for 3-6 weeks, Kansas teachers have seen student increases in classroom engagement, more productive collaborative learning, balanced participation of all students in class discussions, higher levels of empathy, ownership over academics, increased advocacy, and the ability to speak up in difficult situations. Students have been able to generalize this learning to improve relationships with peers, teachers, and family members. During this session, we will share free resources, discuss implementation challenges, and give away a book or two. Together, we can develop socially and emotionally engaged, career-equipped, lifelong learners.
