Instructional Coherence: Focus on What Matters Most
Years of empirical research and practical reflection indicates organizing schoolsaround evidence-based instructional practices is an essential component of improving student achievement, or as Mike Schmoker quips, "Focus on Less,Then Obsess!" This session will guide administrators, coaches, and teacherleaders, in a hands-on practical exploration of how to use best evidence resources(e.g. Hattie's Meta-analyses, IES Practice Guides, Best Evidence Encyclopedia) to identify a very limited number of essential instructional tools or "Big Dogs",and engage the entire faculty in an on-going process of implementing, adaptingand refining their use across the grades and content areas.

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.
