Break-Out / Hands-On Sessions (Current List of Offerings)
A variety of Break-Out (Hands-on ) sessions have been organized for this workshop. When you register for the meeting - you will have the option of selecting your top four choices for sessions to attend. While we can not guarantee any specific session - we will make every effort to place you in sessions that you requested. Those selections with a PD designation are recommended for teachers only (these sessions are being created to enable teachers to connect their workshop experience with their classroom instruction).
Professional Development / Continuing Education Credit for Teachers
Teachers attending the
full workshop (this includes plenary session and Sessions #1, #2 and #3) will
be eligible for up to 4 hours of continuing education (PD) credit. A signed certificate of attendance
will be issued at the end of the workshop and teachers can submit this form to
the appropriate individual in their district to obtain their PD/CE credit.

included in your registration fee. Assorted muffins, breakfast
biscuits, coffee, juice, and water will be served in the Multi-purpose
