WELCOME TO THE 2012 SUMMER CONFERENCE!

N

ow that all the advance work and planning are finished, I am excited to welcome you to the best professional development opportunity of the year. The 2012 Martin Institute Conference brings together outstanding classroom teachers, administrators, university faculty, educational consultants, and business leaders from around the world to exchange ideas, all in support of promoting 21st century skills in the classroom. I hope this experience enables you to return to the classroom reinvigorated with innovative ideas, strategies, and projects to help all students learn and inspire them for future success. If this is your first event at the Martin Institute for Teaching Excellence, you are in for a real treat, though you may need to prepare yourself for a dose of professional overload. You will have opportunities to connect with new colleagues and identify ways to enhance teaching and learning in your classroom. This year’s theme is Teaching for Tomorrow, and topics will include: higher-order thinking skills, assessment, evaluation, life skills, critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, learning environments, and more. The Martin Institute for Teaching Excellence, its partners, the conference steering committee, sponsors, exhibitors, and the numerous volunteers who help make this conference a reality, welcome you to the 2012 Conference!

KEYNOTE

SPEAKER John Hunter John Hunter is a 4th grade teacher with Albemarle County Schools in Charlottesville, Virginia. Much attention has been brought to John Hunter’s teaching because of his 2011 TEDtalk, which was named by TED and the Huffington Post as the most influential idea of 2011. John Hunter believes that his fourth grade students can solve world peace, as well as develop strategies for solving nuclear disasters, oil spills, global warming, endangered species issues, mineral rights, water rights—a total of about 30 interlocking, real world problems. John sets The World Peace Game in motion and then guides his students through the critical and strategic thinking, collaboration, and negotiation processes needed to understand and develop solutions for these global issues. Hunter explains, “The World Peace Game is about learning to live and work comfortably in the unknown.” Over the course of the last 25 years, John has developed The World Peace Game, a multidimensional strategic board game that requires his fourth graders to solve world dilemmas that are environmental, geopolitical, financial, military, and every other layer he can think of combined. He uses his large scale game grounded in real world problems to teach his students critical thinking, problemsolving, collaboration, coordination, communication, research, negotiation skills, and the skill of synthesis, among other vital 21st century skills. His approach is to create a stimulating learning environment that excites, inspires, challenges, and supports students in their learning. Students learn to observe, connect, think, and construct meaning through inquiry, collaboration, and experimentation.

John’s teaching approach is completely studentcentered and aligned with an emphasis on 21st century thinking skills. The learning environment that he structures is dynamic, fast-paced, and intense which results in highly motivated and engaged students who take real ownership and interest in their learning.

FedEx is the sponsor of John Hunter’s Keynote Address as well as the screening of the documentary, World Peace and Other 4th Grade Achievements.

SPEAKERS Dr. Katie Wood Ray

Mrs. Sande Dawes

Between her passion for elementary writing instruction and a love of children’s literature, Katie Wood Ray found herself asking, “What if children were introduced to key qualities of good writing in the context of illustrations?” This question led to the research behind In Pictures and In Words. The answer was simple yet powerful: “The thinking students do while reading picture books can help them see the connection between what words and illustrations do to make meaning.” As an author of bestselling Heinemann books such as Already Ready, Study Driven, About the Authors, and What You Know By Heart and as a member of Heinemann Professional Development Services, Katie has always given teachers resources and PD that transform writing instruction and help children discover a lifelong love of writing.

Sande comes to the Martin Institute excited about further exploring the notion that students have different abilities and experiences and, therefore, learn in diverse ways.

A former Associate Professor at Western Carolina University, Katie is now a full time writer and researcher of the teaching of writing. With a particular focus on the study of writing craft, she leads teacher workshops and summer institutes across the nation related to the teaching of writing. Her professional background includes both elementary and middle school teaching experience and two years as a staff developer at The Reading and Writing Project, Teachers College, Columbia University. She was also the co-editor of the journal Primary Voices K–6, a publication of the National Council of Teachers of English. Katie is also the author or co-author of Spelling in Use: Looking Closely at Spelling in the Whole Language Classrooms (1996, NCTE), Wondrous Words: Writers and Writing in the Elementary Classroom (1999, NCTE), and The Writing Workshop: Working Through the Hard Parts (And They’re All Hard Parts) (2001, NCTE). A frequent speaker at conferences and summer institutes around the country, Katie also has extensive experience teaching teachers in workshop and demonstration settings.

Sande has been teaching and growing with a wide variety of learners since 1985. She is an on-line instructor/coach-facilitator with the Multiple Intelligence Institute out of Beijing, China and an instructor/coach/consultant for Harvard University’s WIDE World online professional development program. At Harvard University’s Project Zero Classroom and Future of Learning Institutes, she is a member of the faculty as a study group leader and a mini-course instructor. Sande is however, most importantly, a classroom teacher in Berlin, Connecticut. It is in this setting that she takes the key ideas of differentiated instruction, teaching for understanding along with Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences, and crafts experiences that guide learners to construct meaning and seek genuine understanding.

Dr. Alfred Hall Dr. Alfred Hall serves as an Assistant Professor of Science Education at The University of Memphis. Prior to becoming a faculty member at the university, Dr. Hall served as Director of Mathematics and Science, Associate Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, Chief Academic Officer, and Chief of Staff for the Memphis City Schools system from 2001 - 2011. Dr. Hall also serves as a member of the Integrated STEM Education Committee with the National Research Council and National Academy of Engineering, as well as an Advisory Board Member with the Appalachian Regional Comprehensive Center at Edvantia, Inc.

Mr. Bo Adams

Dr. David Hill

Bo Adams considers himself first and foremost to be a learner. He treasures being a son, a husband, and a dad. Bo identifies as a lifelong runner, and he experiences regular bouts of obsession with triathlon, mountain biking, and kayaking. Bo loves to read, write, draw, design, tinker, and think. Bo believes any boundaries between school and life should be blurred and semi-permeable at least.

David Hill is the Director of Academic Operations for the Diocese of Memphis Catholic Schools. In this role, he provides leadership for the Jubilee Schools, which are unprecedented examples of previously closed Catholic schools re-opening to serve a predominantly lowincome student population via significant needbased scholarships. Previously, Dr. Hill served as Executive Director of Teacher Effectiveness for Memphis City Schools. He was the architect and lead writer of the Teacher Effectiveness Initiative, which earned a $90 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, garnered tremendous local philanthropic support, and significantly informed Tennessee’s winning “Race to the Top” application. Additionally, he served as teacher and coach at South Side High School and the founding principal of The Soulsville Charter School in Memphis, TN. Dr. Hill earned his A.B., cum laude, in History and teaching certificate from Princeton University, his M.S. in Educational Leadership from Christian Brothers University, and his Ed.D. in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from Peabody College, Vanderbilt University. His noteworthy published writings include The Stained Glass Window Theory and the award-winning The Self-Defined African American Community of Jim Crow Memphis. Dr. Hill is married with three young sons.

Professionally, Bo proudly serves and leads in education. From 1995 until 2012, Bo worked at The Westminster Schools in Atlanta, Georgia, where he fulfilled a number of roles during his tenure there. In Bo’s last nine years at Westminster, he served as the principal of the Junior High School. In 2006, Bo co-founded The Center for Teaching at The Westminster Schools. Bo’s primary points of focus throughout his principalship were faculty development, professional learning communities, assessment literacy, project-based learning, change management, and educational innovation. In 2010, Bo and Jill Gough launched “Synergy” – a community-issues, project-based, problem-identification-and-solutions course for eighth graders. Prior to coming to Westminster, Bo worked at Darlington School in Rome, Georgia; Loudoun Country Day School in Leesburg, Virginia; and Camp Sea Gull in Arapahoe, North Carolina. Beginning in July 2012, Bo works as the Director of Educational Innovation at Unboundary, a strategic design studio in Atlanta, Georgia, specializing in transformational change processes, communications, and brand significance.
