Building Adolescent Literacy with Digital Composition Presenter: Clary Ca rleton

In this session participants will learn strategies to help keep their students actively engaged to create a collaborative environment that fosters independence and assists with meta-cognition. Digital Composition is a way of telling stories and investigating topics with computer-based tools. Through the use of traditional literacy skills, students can learn to compose short films with digital images, text, and audio on a wide variety of subjects. The workshop will explore the rationale for using digital storytelling in the English classroom and provide resources and examples to inspire you. Writing and performance workshop with William Robi, local professional poet/ spoken word artist and Programs Director for The Podium Foundation. Participants will discuss the process for inspiring students to draft original poems through creating a performance and digital publication as well as a strategy discussion for avenues to showcase student work. This exciting and energetic workshop is designed to assist all school stakeholders in how to address the issues and obstacles facing todays students. After meeting the challenge, the workshop will introduce strategies to assist with classroom participation, daily warm-ups, management, checking for understanding, and grading.

Ice crystals naturally self-assemble into snowflakes as hexagonal prisms. Students will discover the science of self-assembly by demonstrating problem solving skills. Patterns will be investigated when looking at interior and exterior polygon angle measures in order to derive algebraic formulas. The volume of a hexagonal prism model will be explored to determine its effectiveness in delivering cancer drugs to medical patients. Do you need some new ideas for teaching, reviewing, or enriching Algebra II topics? Well, this is the place for you! You will learn new ways to present quadratics, factoring, complex numbers, and fractals in a hands-on and interactive environment. Participants will get a packet of activities, games, journals and projects to take home.
