Teachers will learn techniques and strategies to engage all kinds of learners, from challenged to gifted. Probability, statistics, geometry, number theory, and measurement are just some of the concepts which will be covered. Adaptable projects for grades K-12 will be discussed and presented.

1-72 LETTING GO OF GRAMMAR, Allison Moore
This workshop will help you make the shift away from traditional grammar instruction toward meaningful input and get buy-in from students, families and fellow teachers.

2-50 MAKING WORD PROBLEMS EASY, Larry Wiener

Using Algebra 1 and 2 skills, we will model and solve typical rate, mixture, number, work, and percent problems. Techniques for making the abstract concepts become concrete will be presented and discussed, Many contest problems will be included. Handouts with numerous fun problems will be given.

3-60 TEACHING EVALUATIVE THINKING AND BIAS IN SOCIAL STUDIES AND HISTORY, Jody Passanisi
It is a challenge to teach the critical thinking skill of recognizing bias, but in this age of Internet research it is a necessary skill for students to have-- especially students of history. Students must be able to evaluate historical sources, primary or secondary and discern perspective as well. This workshop will go through some tools that can help scaffold this skill.
