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).

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.
