RON CLARK—“America’s Teacher”
Begin the day with Ron Clark, whose keynote, “Creative Practices for Motivating Students, Parents, and Coworkers” will feature his best practices and tricks of the trade for getting the most out of challenging and hard-to-reach students.
Known to many as "America's Educator," Clark is the 2000 Disney American Teacher of the Year, a two-time New York Times-bestselling author, the subject of a television movie and the founder of The Ron Clark Academy. Ron Clark brings charisma, energy, and devotion to the education profession. His highly effective programs garnered national attention and led to a White House invitation to be honored by the president.
Our afternoon speaker, Page Keeley, will share her best practices in formative assessment. Keeley recently retired from the Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance (MMSA) where she directed projects and developed resources in leadership, professional development, linking standards and research on learning, formative assessment, and mentoring and coaching.
In between these two amazing keynote presentations, attendees will be able to join other science educators in two breakout sessions focused on effective instructional practices. Breakout session topics include differentiation, classroom management, instructional technology, visual learning techniques, strategies for reaching ELLs in the science classroom, literacy, academic vocabulary, science content misconceptions, engaging the brain, and strategies to reach all learners. Bring a team so you can share what you learn at your sessions with your colleagues.
