Five steps reaching academic

5 Steps to Reaching Academic Equity in Your Schools and Classrooms

Join Dr. Almitra Berry as she shares insight from her newly released book, Effecting Change for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Learners, 2nd Edition. She generates the excitement needed for educators to travel down the metaphorical Road to CARTI, where culturally appropriate response to instruction (CARTI) is the way schools operate. Come take a drone flight overview, and be ready to set your GPS for the land of CARTI!

In this session, participants will:

  • Learn Dr. Berry’s motivation for writing Effecting Change.
  • Explore an outline to reach academic equity and understand why the CARTI framework must be taken as a sequential whole.
  • Examine the need to drive in both the lanes of school structure and culture in order to create a school built on academic equity for learners of cultural and linguistic diversity.

3 Steps for Making Early Writers Independent

Join early literacy expert and reading specialist, Cathy Collier as she discusses her first book, The Road to Independent Reading and Writing. Students need clear and explicit directions in writing, but setting up the routines in the classroom and their materials is key. When students aren't afraid to write and have appropriate writing anchors in the room, the students are able to write independently with ease. Cathy will give step-by-step ideas for independent writing lessons.

In this session, participants will:

  • Discover what routines are essential for early learners.
  • Explore what materials can easily be accessed by students.
  • Identify what supports are provided by the teacher that helps maintain independence.

Teaching Elementary Math: No More Problems with Problem Solving

One of the greatest hurdles of teaching mathematics at the elementary level is determining how to teach students to solve challenging problems. In this session, we will explore why problem-solving is difficult for students, how the tasks we choose can develop problem solvers, how to support linguistic needs, and why using predictable routines enables students to problem solve more confidently and productively.

In this session, you will learn:

  • why students struggle with problem-solving and how to build students’ perseverance;
  • how to recognize and choose appropriate high cognitive-demand tasks to engage students in authentic problem solving;
  • ways to be linguistically responsive while teaching problem-solving skills;
  • why predictable routines enable students to approach a task more confidently and how routines can enhance problem-solving skills.
