"K-12 Differentiated Visual Tools for Teaching Discipline-specific Content K-12 Literacy"
For many teachers, figuring out how to make the Common Core Standards work for struggling learners and students with special needs is a huge challenge. Few resources currently exist that make the new standards accessible for these populations. Dr. Ed Ellis, a national leader in the creation and effective use of instructional organizers, has created a series of graphic organizers and tools that are directly linked to the Common Core Standards, and he is coming to CSUN to share these exciting new resources.
Participants will learn how to use these tools to support all learners in the CCSS, and will leave with a new understanding of how to scaffold the standards to meet the needs of the wide diversity of students in their classrooms.
This one-time workshop is FREE to CSUN students and faculty, and includes dinner and extensive handouts. It's perfect for ELEMENTARY, SECONDARY and SPECIAL EDUCATORS, as well as administrators and instructional leaders who are looking for ways to help their teachers become more proficient at teaching the new standards.
