June 23, 2011 (continued) 12:15-3:30 p.m. Sessions: Teacher Effectiveness Index: An Alternative Model to Measure Student Growth Ohio’s education reform agenda calls for student growth to be an important metric of “teacher effectiveness” in educator evaluation systems of the future. But how do school districts find reliable, valid, and transparent measures of student growth that account for all of the essential variables that influence student performance in both core and non-core academic subjects? This session will examine a statistical model called the “Teacher Effectiveness Index” as a proposed starting point for fairly quantifying individual educator impact on a class of students that can be incorporated into a comprehensive system of evaluation.

June 24, 2011 (continued) 8-11:15 a.m. Sessions: Making Connections for Leadership and Learning School leaders know that improving student learning requires making connections between planning, curriculum, instructions, assessment, and organization (resource allocation, scheduling and staffing). By making these connections, administrators and teachers can create a framework for student achievement and effective teaching.

12:15-3:30 p.m. Sessions: Literacy Skills in the Content Areas: Interventions for Students Who Struggle Students who struggle with basic literacy skills often fail to perform well in content areas (science, social studies, etc.) due to intense demands for reading, note-taking and writing skills. Participants will learn to estimate the 'readability' of textbooks, how to predict reading comprehension with the Cloze procedure, how to acquire, make and use books-on-tape/CD, and how to develop and use Guided Note Technique for lecture and study support. The presentation will also include brief demonstrations of technology including "talking" spell checkers and voice-output software for computers that can facilitate literacy skill applications. Facilitator: Tom Diebold Member Price: $49 Non-member Price: $79

Using Teacher Data to Inform Coaching Learn how to use teacher data for coaching that is designed to meet staff members' identified instructional needs. Participants will learn about tools available (STEP) for collecting classroom data, assessing teacher strengths and areas of need, and planning opportunities for teacher growth. Conferencing protocols will be shared that increase opportunity for transformed teacher practices. Facilitator: Greg Paulmann Member Price: $49 Non-member Price: $79 Transformational Change Schools have long been the target of reform. Ironically, the very same schools that serve as agents of change for individuals, communities, and societies are often slow to change as institutions. This session will reveal surprising empirical evidence about behavior and motivation that will help teachers, principals, and district leaders better understand why schools resist even the most well-intentioned reform and how they can ensure that any change is transformational and enduring.
