  • Writing to Persuade – Based on Twisting the Arm: Offered April 16 @ MSU this session is based on the book Twisting Arms: Teaching Students How to Write to Persuade, this series will take you step-by-step through the writing process. It is easy to understand and easy to teach when you have the right tools to grab the attention of students at any age! The session includes a writing activity using Play-doh, mini lessons on writing the body of a paper, the intro, and the conclusion. Along the way, you will also get tips for motivating students to write, research tips, and making declarations in writing. Come and join us for a wonderful time of writing with a refreshing twist, then choose what will work best in your classroom!
  • Tech 101: Offered April 23 @ MSU this sessions throws out a life preserver for those drowning in a sea of tech. This professional development session will focus on what you need.
  • Bridging the Gap: A Gap Analysis using the New Core Standards: Offered May 7 @ Prestonsburg Campus & May 21 @ Ashland Campus this session will help teachers transition from Core Content 4.1 to the Kentucky Common Core Academic Standards and bridge the inevitable gaps in instruction that will emerge.  It is important for schools to identify and address these gaps.  This workshop will take participants through a process for identifying gaps.  Schools could send grade-level teams or one representative to bring the process back to share at the school level.
