Colorful, Dynamic and Interactive: Reimagining Classroom Content
For decades worksheets have been the cornerstone of practice activities across the curriculum, but they are a legacy of a bygone age for 21st century learners. In order to remain relevant, today's teachers are asked to reimagine everything they have been doing for years. Classroom content these days is expected to be colorful, dynamic, and interactive. But how does a teacher go from a file cabinet filled with worksheets to multimedia content? This session is designed to help teachers begin to create their own materials – using the tools they already have.  THIS SESSION IS REPEATED SATURDAY @ 1:30pm.

Rapping Across the Curriculum: Using Student Created Hip-hop to Express Content Understanding
You may have your own opinions about rap and hip-hop, but it’s a fact: "kids-these-days" are listening and loving it. Use that to your advantage in the classroom. Attending participants will be supplied with or made aware of the rubrics, assignment-sheets, incentives, and the apps and resources necessary to host a rap battle in their classroom. Examples of quality student work will be shared. There will also be a brief demonstration of how teacher-created raps can be used as teaching tools. If implemented in a structured, focused manner, student rap battles can be a fun, manageable, creative way to engender enthusiastic student participation and expression of content-mastery.
