#OTPGradingHow-GradingWhat
Limited Capacity filling up

Participants will begin the session by exploring their personal biases and how those biases affect grading. Through a group activity, participants will experience how students feel when they are graded unfairly. Participant will then "hack" ways to separate the "how" grade from the "what" grade to develop a plan to revise grading in their classrooms so that students receive meaningful feedback.

Amplifying the Acoustics of Democracy & Agency: Can You Hear Me Now?
Limited Capacity filling up

In 1988, Lisa Delpit noted that “the teacher cannot be the only expert in the classroom. To deny students their own expert knowledge is to disempower them.” (Delpit, 1988, p. 19). Delpit conducted educational research related to hierarchy in schools, and specifically considered the extent to which race impacts the dynamics of power, voice, and agency in schools. Like other educators and researchers over the last three decades, Delpit highlighted the potential, value, and promise of “student voice” as we design, shape, and improve our schools as spaces for deep learning, personal growth, and democratic citizenship.

This 90-minute workshop provides student voice research findings from Forest Hills Northern High School, Orchard View Middle School, and Detroit Country Day Upper School, all located in Michigan. Workshop participants will learn how students: 1) developed questions about their school and secondary education; 2) planned inquiries; 3) applied democratic principles to participation and deliberation; 4) gathered and evaluated evidence; and 5) communicated conclusions and took informed action. The workshop is highly interactive, so that participants continuously engage with both the content and each other.

Bringing Deeper Learning to Scale: What Does It Look Like to Support Traditionally Underserved Students at the School, District and State Levels?
Limited Capacity full

In school districts across the country, deeper learning opportunities are often “saved” for a subset of students—high achievers and students from largely white, middle class suburban communities. In this session, we’ll engage in conversation about how policy, practice, and effective resources can make deeper learning a reality for all students, especially as a means to bring equitable opportunities for traditionally underserved students to engage in deeper learning every day.

Presenters will share concrete examples of what deeper learning looks like in their sphere (e.g., across a district or within schools) and lead a discussion with participants about how policy and practice at the school, district, and state level can provide complementary and reinforcing opportunities for traditionally underserved students to develop deeper learning competencies.
Through this session, participants will:

• Have an opportunity to engage in a frank discussion about the challenges with implementing deeper learning at scale and explore solutions;
• Hear leaders in the field share how they have built deeper learning into their instructional approach;
• Build knowledge and capacity of specific instructional practices employed by leading schools and districts to create and scale up deeper learning opportunities for traditionally underserved student populations;
• Learn strategies to address specific challenges school and district leaders face as they provide opportunities for all students to develop deeper learning competencies, and particularly for those students who traditionally have not had exposure to a curriculum rich in these skills and competencies;
• Build knowledge and capacity of how state and district policy can support or undermine deeper learning to advance equity goals—and where there are limitations;
• Identify recommendations for state and district policymakers that can help bring deeper learning to scale for all students, particularly underserved populations.

Cultural Baptism by Immersion: How to immerse yourself and your students in diverse culture (and why you should)
Limited Capacity filling up

Evolution is nature’s way of optimizing living systems. A particularly innovative invention of evolution is culture. The Business Dictionary defines culture as a “pattern of responses discovered, developed, or invented during a social group's history of handling problems which ... are considered the correct way to perceive, feel, think, and act. It encompasses all learned and shared, explicit or tacit, assumptions, beliefs, knowledge, norms, and values, as well as attitudes, behavior, dress, and language.” The one thing that culture isn’t is fixed.

Culture evolves just like any system of organisms. Cultural evolution is just as essential to civilization as biological evolution is to life - adapt or become extinct. Today’s polarized political environment would have us believe that cultural diversity is non-optimal; that a mono culture of capitalism or socialism or some other -ism is the only path to sustainable progress. But if natural selection has taught us anything, it is that survival depends on adaptation, and innovative adaptation proceeds directly from diversity. As educators, we embrace social diversity. However, as the world becomes “flatter”, social diversity seems to become more divisive even as it becomes more apparent. How can we introduce our students to the rich diversity that surrounds them without risking the schisms that instill fear and promote isolation? How can we help them appreciate and perhaps even adopt social norms from other cultures?

These are the questions we hope to address in this workshop. We will offer insights into our personal experiences in immersive cultural exchange both among students and between teachers. We will then apply design thinking to design a cultural immersion experience that meets each participant’s needs, whether that involves international exchanges or the discovery of the cultural diversity in one’s own backyard.

Don’t just do something, stand there! Empowering student as scientist through intentional nonintervention
Limited Capacity full

In this workshop, attendees will be put in the shoes of students as we practice using a model for teaching science through doing science. Students from Avanti High School (an ALE public school of choice in Olympia, WA) will lead the attendees of this workshop through the Student as Scientist model; a process that they have first-hand experience with from their science courses at Avanti. The workshop is collaboratively designed by students and their science teacher utilizing a 5E lesson plan. Though students will take a lead role in facilitating the workshop, the teacher will help set the tone for both rigor and lightheartedness to explore with curiosity and engagement. First, attendees will hear student and teacher perspectives on the model through stories of their experience with it. Next, participants will explore the model via a simulated experience with it. We will provide them with background information on a specific topic (ex. Banana slug eating behaviors), have teams brainstorm a list of questions, and then develop possible research methods for how to answer their chosen question. We will also provide some physical examples of materials they can use for data collection (can stimulate thoughts for methods). This model can be used in any science subject and is great for both field and lab research. It puts students firmly into the role of ‘scientist’ and requires that the teacher practice some intentional nonintervention. Sometimes students fail the first time around and have to adjust research methods (or even the initial question!). That’s fantastic!! The workshop will culminate with participants sharing their experiences and a group brainstorm for ideas on possible focus topics and methods for adapting the model. Participants will leave with all handouts/worksheets used and a sense of excitement for learning and teaching science!

Fish Scale, not Blue Whale! Deeper Learning @ Scale: A S.I.M.P.L.E. process to shift the role of the learner AND your system
Limited Capacity full

Personalized learning elements such as deeper learning are critical and necessary pieces of a larger system transformation effort. The Systemic Implementation of Personalized Learning Elements (S.I.M.P.L.E.) approach takes the implementation of ideas such as deeper learning from classroom practice to full scale systemic change. The Institute for Personalized Learning works with district and school teams across the nation and has developed frameworks and approaches that transform tomorrow's lessons and leverages those to make systemic change. Teachers will leave with resources and ideas for changing the experience for their learners the next day. School and district leaders will leave with a customized blueprint and a strong understanding of the S.I.M.P.L.E process to move toward systemic change. Join us for an engaging, interactive session that will push on basic assumptions, guide participants toward transformational change and explore how to address conflict, friction, and discomfort with all stakeholders. The SIMPLE process will allow learners to gain the immediate benefits of learning in a classroom that has deeper learning and other PL elements, and will build the foundation of a personalized system.

Full School Makeover!: Using immersive theatre as a deep thinking tool to drastically change how students see and interact with your spaces
Limited Capacity filling up

In this workshop, participants will engage with documentation from an immersive theatre production that took over our school last year, and the developing production we build annually with new students. Our example serves as a springboard; this workshop is an opportunity for participants to conceptualize their own framework for an immersive, site-specific production in their school. This framework will draw from the participants’ school spaces and the issues relevant to their students.

Participants will engage in writing and drama exercises, respond to sparks in news articles and picture books, generate ideas based on their school contexts, collaborate with students and teachers for brainstorming and feedback, and consider barriers to access -- and solutions to them -- for this project to occur successfully in their schools.

Ultimately, our goal is for participants to leave the workshop with a solid grounding in how this project has developed and worked for us and a plan for how to begin planning and provoking such a project for themselves.

This project arose as a means to process key questions in our practice: how do we promote a student-driven vision and development of school spaces? How can we undertake meaningful experiences so that students work as genuine apprentices seeking mastery, confidence, and independence across disciplines? How do we engage students in creating critical habits of thought and developing agency in relationship to issues that matter to them?

Our project seeks to answer these questions by honouring student voice and building student confidence. Our motivation is to engage students as more than subject tourists; we want them to feel at home in the cultures of thinking and connection across our disciplines and communities. We want them to feel at home in these modes of thinking and connection outside of school as well: in other physical spaces, at other stages of their life, and in their careers and personal projects. We hope this workshop provides participants with a real, workable foundation for how to do this for themselves.

Good Questions Are the Answer: Lenses of Questioning
Limited Capacity full

In this age of instant information access and shallow sound bites, it is imperative that we don't lose the skill of thoughtful, critical inquiry, so crucial to every lesson or experience. The Lenses of Questioning method (loosely based on the business model Six Thinking Hats), which Batsheva originated and has taught world-wide, gives solid tools and includes activities to both model for and train students to ask and analyze strong questions, which leads to deeper critical thinking skills and imaginative observations.
In this highly interactive workshop, participants will learn by doing how to engage students of all ages in higher order thinking with meaningful, fun activities as they master the Lenses of Questioning approach.

Hacking your way to Personalized Learning
Limited Capacity filling up

"Hacking your way to Personalized Learning" will give participants an overview of the Colorado PL project, teach them how to design hacks, work with students to iterate and improve those hacks, and walk away with a new skill to test in their own school.

Colorado Education Initiative (CEI) is leading a cohort of four school districts in Colorado that are working on deepening their Personalized Learning (PL) strategies throughout their schools. Each district has an elementary, middle, and high school participating. As part of the PL project, schools are engaging in mindset work, learning new practices, and implementing strategies at scale. CEI also partners with the Stanford d.school on implementing School Retool in the state. One component of the process is learning how to use hacking to test out ideas. We trained educators on how to use hacks in their classrooms to advance their PL goals while incorporating student voice.

Participants will learn from one of our district partners first hand about how this project is working in their district. They will learn what hacking is and how they can use it in their classrooms. They'll also get to work with students and see how their feedback can quickly improve an idea and give them agency in their learning.

Our children are exposed to media and language that is fueled by bigotry and hate on a daily basis. It is our moral obligation to create a safe space where conversations about race, gender, class, and immigration can be discussed with civility. This session is designed to help elementary school educators develop a social justice curriculum for their classrooms. Participants will exit with a plan for teaching social justice in their classrooms. Participants will learn by sharing collective best practices of social justice work in our schools. Educators will collaborate and develop an idea for adding social justice lens to their previous work or future projects. We hope to encourage educators to spark a sense of justice and action in schools.

Making friends with data and research!
Limited Capacity full

Many educators and school leaders have a strained relationship with data and research. For far too many years, data has been hard to access and use, often was focused on the wrong or inadequate measures, or was simply misused. Quite recently, a new era for educational research and data has begun to transform how schools and educators access and use data to help students and tell their own story. In this session, educators and school leaders will be provided real-world examples of the newly emerging tools, approaches, and mindset for leveraging data, research, and visualization tools to support their own unique educational objectives. Using examples culled from global K12 school settings in recent months and years, this session will provide both a framework and examples of best practices for attendees wishing to better leverage research, data, and the latest visualization tools in their own school context. Attendees will actively participate in data gathering, scoring, and reporting through online instruments, classroom drawings, observation rubrics, and will be introduced to a collection of the latest data-visualization tools being used in classrooms around the globe. Through the application of these process and tools, attendees will have the opportunity to more empirically self-evaluate and reflect with others on the complex objectives and relationships inherent in using data to inform 21st teaching and learning. To facilitate this process, attendees will work through exercises individually and in small groups, with whole group discussion and facilitated sharing. By the end of our session, attendees will have a greater enthusiasm and deeper understanding for the opportunities and affordances of leveraging research and data in their classroom/school and deepen their capacity and skills for using simple data visualization tools.

Providing Students with a Passionate, Powerful, Persuasive Practice Using Systems Thinking
Limited Capacity full

The ability to persuade is a life skill for students. Whether they are trying to get the keys to the car for a night out with friends, appealing to a teacher for a recommendation for National Honor Society, convincing a coach why they should not be on the bench, or eventually pitching their best idea to a potential business investor, persuasion is a skill for which students can easily see real-life applications. Systems thinking provides students with language they can use to explain their thinking and tools to make their thinking visible. Teachers striving to help students think more deeply will find that systems thinking provides them explicit methods for teaching critical thinking and problem solving. In this session participants will engage in a series of systems thinking-based activities designed to teach techniques for argumentation. Session activities will utilize a systems thinking approach, and while engaging for adults the lessons will be immediately applicable to a classroom as well. Making a claim and providing the corresponding supportive arguments is a core academic skill that requires critical thinking, problem solving skills, and clear communication. It is a perfect practice field for exploring the use of systems thinking to develop and enrich deeper learning.

Seed To Table: STEM comes alive in the Garden and Kitchen
Limited Capacity filling up

This workshop will teach attendees how to incorporate all elements of STEM into a long-term gardening and cooking project. We will show how to grow an heirloom variety of Native American corn and turn it into flour to make a traditional corn cake.Attendees will engage in a series of 4 hands-on projects that show how STEM comes to life in the garden and kitchen setting. Each station will show how to appeal to a broad diversity of student interests. Teachers and administrators will leave with concrete examples and lesson ideas they can bring back to their schools and either start or expand on existing garden programs. Attendees start at the Science station. We will walk through the process of soil testing and analyzing different soil types. We will discuss the importance of different soil types and inclusion of organic amendments and how they affect plants and the environment. After this all move on to the technology station. At the Technology station attendees will learn first about the historical significance of the Hopi Red Dent corn. We will then use various types of grain mills to turn the corn into flour. Next at the Engineering station the entire group will be split up into 4 or 5 smaller groups. We will encourage each group to identify the different ways that engineering is or can be student driven in a garden and cooking setting. We will facilitate each discussion. After 10 minutes of brainstorming each group will report back to the entire group on their findings. Finally at the Math station attendees will participate on 2 more hands on projects. One will consist of making batter with the fresh ground flour and discuss mathematics in recipe development. The other will highlight the use of math when determining plant spacing and garden planning.

Students are the New PLC: Empathizing and Learning from Students to Design Classroom Experiences that Matter
Limited Capacity filling up

Passionate, engaged, authentic teaching that evolves around what students want and need is not necessarily pretty and often means asking tough questions, struggling with realities, and stumbling over and over. But so often, in an effort to systematize teaching and learning, the realities and HUMANITY of engaging students and teachers in transformative learning experiences can get lost in the shuffle. Curriculum binders are neat, but often not beneficial for the needs of real students. At Fern Creek High School in Louisville, Kentucky, we have banded together as an interdisciplinary cohort of passionate educators who want to dig deep to the heart of teaching and discover from students how to best teach them. We created School Startup (schoolstartup.org), which is a program where teachers form a cohort and use the principles of design thinking to start where it matters--with students--and build from there. School Startup teachers start by shadowing and interviewing their toughest students, then disrupt their own preconceived notions about learning to develop new curriculum, restructure whole classes, or start totally from scratch. In this session, School Startup teachers will facilitate a focus group between attendees and actual students and guide attendees through the process of using interview data to inform instructional design. Prepare to rethink your approach to teaching and to walk away with a plan of action for engaging students and transforming teachers when you return home!

Wild Principals Unite! A New Leadership and Design Incubator
Limited Capacity full

Join faculty and fellows from School Foundry, a new principal leadership and school design incubator recently launched by Big Picture Learning. School Foundry starts with the assumption that we need new approaches to leadership development in order to disrupt the educational status quo and bring innovative deeper learning approaches to more students. Participants in this Deep Dive will reflect on their own leadership practice through our lens of what it means to be a wild principal. Are you equity-driven? Shifting systems around you? Stewarding an adult learning organization? Designing for deeper learning? Drawing on challenges and growth opportunities from their own leadership practice, participants will work with each other and facilitators to develop action plans to be more effective generally or in responding to a specific dilemma. Not just for principals, this session should be a helpful reflective and planning session for any equity-driven leader. Facilitators have started and led multiple deeper learning schools in various contexts (district and charter, urban and rural, etc.) and hope to include this Deep Dive’s participants in ongoing dialogue about how we develop leaders for the schools we need, not just the ones we have. Embedded in the session will be an overview of School Foundry’s approach, relevant to principals considering who might succeed them, district leaders looking to develop strong principals, and funders and policymakers developing or supporting leadership programs.
