How to Build a System that Works No Matter Where or What School Looks Like
Presented by Jenna Rodgers
The bottom line is that no one knows what school is going to look like. I have created a way to give instruction, provide targeted practice, monitor and provide feedback on student-data, and give students the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of skills.
I know it sounds like a lot, and it is. And, it is a lot of LITTLE things. I'll share with you how I built my system, first providing an overview of the structure. Then, we will break out into small groups and you will be able to create an instructional resource that will make instruction, progress, and practice crystal clear to the students and their family.
This session includes free access to anything I've created for my 2nd grade classroom. I am willing to support anyone wanting extra support in creating their instructional system.

Strategies for a Successful Return: Using Applied Educational Neuroscience to Support Students and Staff
Presented by Jessie Fuller, Joelle Hood, and Janeen Antonelli
Life is full of change and uncertainty right now, which has led to an increase in stress for all of us. Neuroscience tells us that emotions influence learning. One way we can support ourselves and our students in navigating this difficult time is to deepen our Social, Emotional, and Academic Learning (S.E.A.L.). There couldn’t be a more important time to focus on strengthening our own well-being and resilience than right now. With physical distancing measures in place, it is critical that social connection and sense of belonging be prioritized. As challenging as this time is, there is hope. We can strengthen students’ sense of connection and their resilience in virtual settings as well as in-person.
