WELCOME MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Dear ETC Delegates: Welcome to the EARCOS Teachers’ Conference (ETC) 2010 at International School Manila. We would like to thank David Toze and the ISM staff for the use of their great campus and Dick Robbins of Brent School Manila for providing all the bus transportation for our conference. It has been a cooperative effort shown by both schools and their leadership and we applaud the effort. This is the first time in ETC’s eight-year history that it is being hosted on a school campus. The campus setting has enabled us to provide more intense coverage in specialty areas of physical education, art, dance, technology, and counseling. We may adjust our future venues to include a campus setting every three years to allow for this kind of coverage to continue. With the world economic situation, it is prudent that EARCOS holds cost in check put allows for quality professional development. The ETC has three excellent keynote presenters with Taylor Mali, Alan November, and John Joseph. We have 12 preconference offerings, and 116 workshop sessions geared to meet our teachers’ needs. In addition, our job-a-like sessions will provide an opportunity for teachers to meet with their colleagues who work in similar areas. ETC will have a record number of 76 teacher workshop sessions, which are always practical and well presented. Please support your fellow teachers. Students will again be highlighted with our general sessions having an EARCOS Global Citizen student from ISM, the Brent school dance team, and the 2009 Shanghai/EARCOS Film Festival winner. EARCOS has great talent so support our students and be on time for each general session. Thanks to all our ETC teacher representatives who have spent many hours assisting our teachers with workshops, registration for the conference, and hotel and transportation arrangements. Without their dedication it would be impossible to host our conference the way we do. Thanks, also, to our EARCOS staff members who have worked endless hours to assist with the many details and logistics. The contributions of Elaine, Vitz, Ver, Edzel, and Robert with their attention to detail is commendable. Our new assistant director Bill Oldread has been invaluable —we know his first ETC will be memorable. Finally, it is always my wish for our delegates to make good contacts, be challenged by our presenters, renew friendships, and enjoy our hospitality. Visit our exhibitors and let them know that we appreciate their sponsorship that helps us provide the best. I’m proud and happy to be the director of this wonderful organization.

Dick Krajczar EARCOS Executive Director

10:00-11:30

LYNNE COLEMAN For the Kids: Strategies for finding common language to undertake challenging work As teachers we know that the deepest, most long-lived learning often happens in community. With our students, the first step to building that community is helping them to find a common language so that that they can get the most out of their learning and their time together. The same holds true of teachers as we work in teams and departments to help support the work of our students. We can help our students and peers by positively shaping the ways in which we work together. In the process, we enrich the nature of the team effort required to make the learning come alive. In this session, we will discuss norm-setting strategies and explore text as common ground.

PHYLLIS ALDRICH Who Are Gifted children? What teacher hasn’t had a student who seemed more advanced than the rest of the class in some subject? Could this be a sign of giftedness? How can teachers tell? What about conflicting definitions of giftedness? Could a child be considered both ‘Learning Disabled’ and ‘Highly Gifted’ at the same time? What about uneven social and emotional development? What about a child whose language development is problematic, but otherwise appears to have some superior skills? How is a teacher to decide the ‘optimal’ curriculum match for that student? We will discuss these issues in the context of international schools.

ERIC LYMAN / ANNE PITT-KENNEDY / MICHELLE MARRELLO Target Audience: Secondary school math teachers Title: When Students Choose the Challenge (using tiered instruction and assessment to differentiate for varied student readiness) Tired of teaching to the middle? Anne, Eric and Michelle will share a system that encourages students to work at a level which will maximize their own learning in Math. Students are given the opportunity to select from a three tiered set of practice material together with the ensuing formative and summative assessments. Students’ choices are based on their own sense of readiness and desire for challenge. This approach, which has been fully implemented at JIS, and more recently started at Taipei American School (TAS), has received wide acclaim. An article about the JIS program, “When Students Choose the Challenge,” appeared in Educational Leadership magazine’s November 2007 Issue. This article was subsequently republished in an ASCD E-book (2009) entitled, “Challenging the Whole Child: Reflections on Best Practice in Learning, Teaching, and Leadership.” International school differentiated instruction gurus, Bill and Ochan Powell also included a detailed description of the system in their recently published book, Making the Difference (2008).

Nevertheless, participants who did not attend the Teachers as Critical Friends Facilitators pre-conference are most welcome. We will be using different protocols. Come learn how use the language of protocol to tap group wisdom for the purpose of making your assessments, units, and assignments even better. Protocols, which make a space for all voices to be heard, require participants to trust in the ability of the group to find better answers than an individual can. These collaborative processes make it safe to go public with the work of helping students to learn. They have proven their worth time and again in studies of effective organizations from both the business and the educational world. Those who wish to volunteer real in-progress work will have an opportunity to expand their thinking through the efforts of the group.

LYNNE COLEMAN Looking at Student Work Come learn how to use protocols that engage and invite all participants to look deeply into student work. As teachers, we struggle daily to find ways to best serve each one of our students – but all too often, we carry on our search without benefit of the combined experience and thinking of our peers. In this session, we will look collaboratively – from the students’ perspective -- at a piece of student work offered by one of the participants. Our aim will be to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the learning and to broaden the thinking about how to help all students, but this student in particular, best reach the next set of desired outcomes. Participants will experience the strategies and discuss how to best apply them in their own settings.

LYNNE COLEMAN Growing a Team: Operations in the Team Structure Knowing how individuals – and relationships – function effectively in a group setting helps all members of the group support and guide the work at hand. Research shows this to be as true for students as for adults . . . from extra-curricular student groups, to classrooms, from teacher departments and teams to parent groups. When individuals themselves understand the nuances of group dynamics and how colleagues work within them, productivity increases and change becomes more manageable. In this active session, participants will experience a variety of team-building activities that offer insights to help each team member know more about how individuals add to – or detract from -- the group’s ability to succeed.

JOHN JOHNSTON Ecosystem Services - What does Mother Nature Provide for Free? Understanding of the numerous services our ecosystems provide and the way humans value them. Markets exist for services that are traded (energy, commodities), while other services are not purchased directly and traded (water purification, pollination of food crops). Cultural, religious and recreational services provided by systems are often valued highly but don’t easily fit a market worldview and pose challenges to their protection. The costs of protecting systems compared with repairing and engineering damaged systems will be demonstrated. Key Questions: What is an ecosystem? What is a service? How does water move form place to place? What impact have humans had on movement of water? What are the economic impacts of environmental degradation? Workshop Topics/Exercises: Ecosystem services examples (i.e. water purification, pollination, seed dispersal, energy, pharmaceuticals, recreation etc.) Hydrologic cycle and a full accounting of costs/benefits Wetlands services, floods and natural disasters.

HELEN ARNOLD Target Audience: Elementary Art Teachers, but may also be useful to MS Art Teachers Title: Expressing Mood in Art: From Analysis of every day Art Works to Critiques of Student Work In this workshop, teachers will be guided through a unit on creating mood in a painting, which has been particularly successful with fourth graders, but could be adjusted to suit any grade level. Many art teachers know how feeling is expressed or evoked in a piece of art, but how do we get the students to that point of deep understanding? Helen will guide you through this step by step exploration of coming to understand the use of subject and color in art, with lesson plan rubric, and sample student projects to view. Each member of this workshop will leave with some new ideas of investigating mood in painting with children, and if time allows a small piece of art to boot! This workshop will be beneficial to art teachers of all ages.
