EXAMPLES of PAST WORKSHOPS

MEASURABLE LANGUAGE OBJECTIVES FOR ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS
with Jen Kelly-Dewitt & Brooke Toczylowski, Coaches in Curriculum & Instruction, Oakland International High School

How do we design concrete and measurable language objects for our English Language Learners? How do these connect to and support our content objectives? In this workshop participants will work with coaches from OIHS to examine example objectives and lesson plans from OIHS teachers as well as have time to craft their own. 

THINKING ROUTINES 101
with Brooke Toczylowski

What kind of thinking do you want your students to master? Why are thinking routines powerful tools for the classroom? In this hands-on workshop participants will try out four thinking routines from Project Zero, a research institute at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. 
-10 x 2: to support observing & describing
-Parts, Purposes, Complexities: to explore the complexity of an idea, object, or system
-Think, Feel, Care: to develop empathy and explore other perspectives
-Connect, Extend, Challenge: to compare and connect ideas

TAKE APART and RE-DESIGN
with Francisco Nieto, ACOE Meaning Making Studio 

Work with Francisco Nieto from the Meaning Maker Studio at Alameda County's Office of Education to take apart motorized toys, develop an understanding of how they work, and re-design them into new objects. Through a series of hands-on activities participants will develop their capacity to envision, look closely, tinker, brainstorm, and re-design. 

PHYSICAL COMPUTING
with Aaron Vanderwerff and Cicely Day

Join us as we delve into Physical Computing,  where programming and the physical world meet! Have your own device, but haven't used it yet? You are not alone - bring it along and we will dive in together! We will have technologies to try out on-site including Hummingbird, micro:bit, Makey-Makey, and Lego Robots.
