Engaging with Relevance
Rigor is an education buzzword that is used quite frequently and typically surrounding high-order thinking and Bloom's Taxonomy. The Quad-D Rigor and Relevance Framework illustrates another piece of the engagement puzzle, which is how relevant the content is to the student. The relevance of activities and/or content is a critical aspect of creating an engaging classroom experience that is often overlooked. For teachers to continue providing valuable learning opportunities that benefit students and prepare them to apply traits and develop transferable skills, we need to master the shift to creating engaging, relevant classroom instruction.

Fighting Fake News! Tools and Tactics for Becoming a SUPER Critical Thinker in a Digital Age
In 2006, we first learned that even the brightest students were easily fooled by internet hoaxes like the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus. While we tried to laugh this as the folly of misguided youth, a decade later we witnessed the rise of fake news and its impact on the “post-truth” world of 2016 overrun by an ever growing network of social media. To fight for truth, justice, and yes, even the American way, this session presents a collection of superhero themed critical thinking activities designed to empower you and your students conquer the evils of fake news.

STEM Integration Across the Middle School Curriculum
What could it mean for students if STEM truly permeated their entire learning environment? What does STEM look like within curricular areas that do not traditionally fall into what we naturally think of as STEM content areas? Our two-year journey to becoming an IDOE STEM certified school lead to cross curricular collaborations unlike any in which we had previously engaged. It also created incredible learning opportunities for students and staff. Join us to explore our journey and the lessons learned along the way. Presenters will discuss their challenges of cross curricular collaboration, the process of incorporating Language Arts, Social Studies, and Unified Arts into the STEM curriculum, the value of having all content areas and teachers involved, how the 4 Cs of STEM fit into each content area, and strategies to help create all staff buy-in to this initiative. Presenters, all teachers within this journey, will share information and handout/resources for STEM integration across the curriculum.

Background Information: Workshop for Educators on Collaborative Learning Communities

Many teachers are unsure of how to go about setting up collaborative groups or find collaborative groups messy, disorganized, and an ill-structured waste of instructional time. Dispelling myths and addressing concerns removes some obstacles preventing collaborative groups.

Students who collaborate also are more engaged in learning. Collaboration is a 21st century skill for students and this must be modeled by educators. Educators must also provide opportunities for students to collaborate in multiple settings and activities. STEM certified schools requires students to work independently and collaboratively in an inquiry-based learning environment that encourages finding creative solutions to authentic and complex problems and use technology resources to conduct research, demonstrate creative and critical thinking, and communicate and work collaboratively.
