Authentic Student Choice: Honors Senior Seminar at Hudson HSLT

Session 1
Grace O'Keeffe, Sarah Shahata, Matthew Pressman, Racheal Rydell-Klages, Osvaldo Castillo, Omar Abreu, Keenan Edwards, Zainab Oni

Give your classroom back to your students! When you give authentic choice and control to studentsm you let students learn on their own terms. Students get to digest what they learn rather than have it thrown at them. What happens when you give students control of what they learn, how they learn, and how they are assessed?

Cultivating Connections with the Arts

Session 1
Michelle Baldwin

Students find multiple avenues for expression through the Arts! Join this conversation to explore how the Arts enhance learning and create connections in traditional and inquiry-based lessons. Discussion will include research-based inquiry models, interdisciplinary connections, and how to incorporate the Arts, even when outside your comfort zone.

Engaging as Networked Thought Leaders: Let's Write a Book In 90 Minutes!

Session 1
Steve Valentine, Reshan Richards

Leaders give and take from a range of networks, helping them to infuse their organizations with new ideas. Often lost in talk of networking, though, is that it requires particular habits of participation. Participants in this session will practice the network habit by writing, peer editing, and contributing media in a 90-minute workshop. We will write a book on the spot and publish it soon after. As an added bonus, participants will walk away with a new network from which to learn.

Enriching the World Language Curriculum with the Arts

Session 1
Melanie Manuel, Shawn Merrill, Melissa Whitaker, Shay Kretowicz, Karen Aquino, Erica Saldivar Garcia

How can we impact student achievement in a World Language classroom by providing a curriculum rich in the arts? World Language teachers often struggle with how to engage students, particularly with regards to speaking and writing. In this session, we will demonstrate multiple activities that use the arts as a vehicle for generating ideas, enthusiasm and creativity.
