    Annette Breaux – How to Impact Student Achievement & Behavior

    One of the most entertaining and informative authors and speakers in education today. She leaves her audiences with practical techniques to implement in their classrooms immediately. Administrators agree that they see results from their teachers the next day.

    Her message is one of practicality and personality in teaching, of feeling and healing in touching students’ lives, and of common sense and creative teaching strategies. Her writings and presentations generate instant impact on the relationships between teachers and students.

    Shirley Hall – Making the COMPASS Rubric Come Alive in the Classroom (1/2 day in the Assessment Building Gym)

    Novice teachers have the same challenging responsibilities as their more experienced counterparts and are evaluated using the same high standards. Novice teachers are often overwhelmed with the wealth of information that they receive at new teacher orientation before school starts. They are often better able to understand the evaluation criteria for the Compass rubrics after they have had some classroom experience. GreenLight for Learning, LLC proposes training for novice teachers that focuses on:

    • Understanding the structure of the Compass rubrics
    • Differentiating among the four levels of performance
    • Recognizing the components of the Compass rubrics in their own daily practice

    TAP – TBD w/J. Crain (1/2 day – location TBD)
