topicA master schedule should be shaped by the priorities of a campus. It should set us up for success, and it should not be a barrier for us to overcome to achieve success. Join this session to help start the conversation with Holly to talk about our campus priorities and our master schedule for next year!Want to make a website for your classroom? Want to design great graphic for your classroom? Here's the session for you!Student engagement is a huge challenge, but there is an opportunity to do some amazing things to get our students' attention. Join this conversation to share what you do to engage your students. Be ready to hear a few things that might be easy to implement and a few that might need to be adapted from other content areas.How would you redesign your class if you couldn't assign homework? This conversation will look at several "what ifs" that surround homework. I will not tell you that you should or shouldn't have homework. That's not what this is about. It's about taking time to think through why we have homework and how we can make the most of our time with students.Pole vaulting is one of the most difficult events to tackle in Track and Field, but that doesn't stop Charlotte Brown from competing. Although hundreds of Texas high school athletes compete in the event each spring, Charlotte is the only blind athlete I've ever heard of competing in the event. And she's good. Watch this video before spending time thinking through what barriers we often face and how we can overcome them. (11 min video)

Join this session to help start the conversation with Holly to talk about our campus priorities and our master schedule for next year!Formative, Plickers, Google Forms, and ReCap all offer teachers an opportunity to engage students and get formative feedback from students in the process. This will be a quick overview session designed to show the app enough to see if it's worth learning for your classroom. You'll see several apps demonstrated & have time to explore a few further before we wrap up.Each teacher at CG serves a huge number of students. How do you go about making connections with each of the students in your classes? Attend this session to share your ideas and learn from the ideas others share about connecting with students!We often think that for something to be innovative, it has to use the latest technology or be packed full of cutting edge ideas. I think we sell ourselves short when we do that. For something to be innovative, all it has to be is new and better. With that definition in mind, what are you doing that's new and better this year? We'd love to provide space to share those ideas during this sesesion.Sir Ken Robinson's TED talk on creativity in school is the most viewed TED talk ever (40 million+ views!). Do you agree with his assessment? What does that mean for your classroom? Watch his talk together and consider what the rapidly transitioning future means for our work as educators. (20 min video)

This conversaiton will be about how and why to use brain breaks in the classroom.This session will not be a book study. It'll be about looking at books that could potentially be used for a book study. Join me to look at some of the titles I think would be great for us to work through together. If you have suggestions, feel free to bring them! Attendance is not required to participate in future book studies.Everyone is familar with the idea of a growth vs. fixed mindset. George Couros claims that simply having a growth mindset isn't enough. Believing you can grow isn't the same as knowing that you can actually create. That's what the Innovator's Mindset is all about. Watch this brief mini-keynote from Couros if you're interested in innovation and it's implications for our work in education. (23 min video)
