    Introduction to the Next Generation Science Standards Presenter: Susan Mayo, Consultant, PIMSER Location: CCMS Room 114 This in-depth session will provide an overview of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and offer time to work on examples and strategies. Participants will receive an overview of the Framework for K-12 Science Education and learn specific similarities and differences between the NGSS and the Program of Studies/Core Content for Assessment. Participants will leave this session with:

     A vision of science education for NGSS;

     The ability to identify program and instructional implications; and

     A map of next steps, prioritized and differentiated to prepare for implementation in 2013- 14.

    Effective Classroom Management for Elementary Classrooms Presenter: Jane Harris, Safe and Civil Schools Location: CCMS Room 110

    All teachers want their students to be orderly, responsive, engaged, and motivated. According to the most current research on teacher effectiveness, putting a successful behavior management system in place is a sure way of achieving these goals. Safe & Civil Schools can help you get there! This three-hour session will focus on practical techniques to help teachers improve classroom behavior (on-task, work completion, cooperation); establish clear classroom behavior expectations with logical and fair responses to misbehavior; motivate students to put forth their best efforts (perseverance, pride in work); and reduce misbehavior (disruptions, disrespect, non-compliance). Teachers should be able to spend less time disciplining students and more time teaching them!
