    GOAL: The goal of Adaptive Schools Seminars is to develop the collective identity and capacity of organization members as collaborators and inquirers and leaders. ABOUT THE TRAINING: The Adaptive Schools Foundation and Advanced Seminars present a productive, practical set of ideas and tools for developing collaborative groups in becoming effective and better equipped to resolve complex issues around student learning. The work of the Adaptive Schools Seminars is to develop the resources and capacities of the organization and of individuals to cohesively respond to the changing needs of students and society. The training not only explores what makes teams effective, but how to develop skills as facilitators and informed group members in informal and formal settings, in small and large groups. It takes participants beyond the idea of professional learning communities to the actual implementation, describing specific ways to weave the collaborative fabric of a faculty, develop group member skills, and acquire the principles and understandings to engage in a continuous cycle of team and individual improvement. Adaptive Schools is the “how” of professional learning communities: how to behave in groups, how to lead them, and how to facilitate them for improved leading, teaching, and learning.

As they learn to move past the fear of failure, they discover the nervous rush and exhilaration of sharing work with an audience, just as their students do. Only by engaging in the real work of writing can teachers become part of the writing community they dream of creating for their students.” -Kate Messner

    What types of lessons and assignments have the biggest impact on student learning? How much homework should students have? As demands on teachers and students increase, we need to look to research to guide our decisions about how to use class time. In this session, learn about the findings of John Hattie, Doug Fisher and Nancy Frey’s recent literacy research. Explore which classroom practices have the biggest impact on student learning, and which ones fall flat – you may be surprised! Registration fee includes a copy of the new companion text Impact: Teaching Literacy in the Visible Learning Classroom. We will go through the text together, uncovering the authors’ suggestions about how to incorporate these ideas into your instruction. As a group, participants will identify which research-based formative assessment practices they are already using, and which practices to add to maximize student learning. There will be time at the end of the day for teachers to plan ways to incorporate these assessment practices into their current instruction. Attendees should plan to have access to their curriculum, assessments and pacing guides (can be electronic).

    Independent reading allows student choice in what, when and how they read. But how does a teacher coordinate and monitor student progress? In this session, we will explore the research around the benefits and challenges of incorporating independent reading into the secondary classroom through student book clubs, literature circles and sustained silent reading (SSR). We will examine research about using a reader's workshop approach to improve each student's reading . Topics will include how to build and maintain a classroom library, how to get students engaged in reading on their own, and how to work with students to set and meet reading goals. By the end of the session, participants will have some concrete ideas about how and why to incorporate independent reading into their curriculum. Participants please bring one student-appropriate novel they have read on the day of the session.
