You Can be the Teacher AND the Class Clown!
There is such a thing as having a well-managed class, which can progress academically, AND be fun! Learn how to “juggle” these important aspects of a successful classroom with ideas, tips, and stories from former Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus clown turned educator, Valerie Hall (aka Daisy the Clown).
By incorporating several classroom management programs including CHAMPS, classroom cheers, raps, songs, unique motivators, and humor, Valerie Hall has made her classrooms blossom into a welcoming environment that students love to go to.
With Valerie’s techniques, she has been able to increase academic scores, while decreasing referrals at Title One schools, see a growth rate of 80% in parent participation at those same Title One schools, and decrease negative behaviors in her current ABS (Academic Behavior Support) Classroom by 60% since the beginning of the school year through January.
Be prepared to participate in this fun professional development opportunity, by learning and shouting cheers, dancing, singing, and maybe even by donning a clown nose.

Is ADDIE My Granddaughter or an Instructional Design Solution?
Presentation Site
Some of you won’t remember the old days. Back then many teachers, who had been teaching for a time, had their curricula in their heads, the worksheets for the year run off and organized in folders in their file cabinets and life was good. They walked in their classrooms in the morning, told the kids to open their books to page 125 and do the worksheet they pulled from their very organized file cabinets.

Well, the old days are over. We even have a relatively new field of specialization in Education called Instructional Design. So, let’s think about that for a minute. At the core of all instruction is design. Designing relevant instruction is key to successful training and/or educational outcomes. While “lesson planning” may be in the DNA of most teachers, do they really understand Instructional Design? Are all teachers Instructional Designers? Are all Instructional Designers teachers? What exactly is the process? And who is ADDIE anyway?

This session will look at the steps of effective and efficient instructional design. The steps of the process will be introduced with specific details that will assist with the design of instruction. And, you will find out who ADDIE is.

Documenting Behavior Management Effectively
Presentation Site
Learn how to utilize excel for a daily behavior-tracking system that will change the way you do behavior management. This tracker is used to keep track of students’ daily behavior data. Whether it’s a clip chart, card-pull chart, or any other color-coded behavior-tracking system, this file has everything you need to track classroom behavior with ease! Each day you take approximately three minutes to write the first letter of the color that the child ended on that day. At the end of the month you will have a printout of each of your students’ behaviors for that month that they can take home for to show their parents (it also includes an option for parents to sign and return the note.) The spreadsheet will also give you a summary with percentages, for the whole year, which is helpful for students with behavior IEP's or in need of data-based behavior tracking. This class will primarily focus on how to use a pre-designed layout; however, you will also be able to learn ways to create a behavior track that will work best for you and your class!
