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.

How to use Canvas in the Primary Grades
Canvas is an amazing tool to use in the classroom, EVEN IF you teach in the primary grades! I LOVE Canvas! It is my classroom's digital "hub". It is a place for me to communicate with my students and parents. It houses materials that we use on a weekly basis like spelling lists, read aloud books, and subject/theme related resources. My students complete assignments and even access learning centers using Canvas! If you want to learn how to use Canvas more efficiently in your primary classroom, this is the session for you! You will leave with helpful strategies and tools that you can use now to create an amazing Canvas page to start using next school year!

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.
