Writing Revolution Book Study (See Dates in the Details begins May 18th)

Wednesday, May 18th, 3:30pm

This is an online event.

District will provide a copy of the book. Please RSVP so I can order you a copy of the book.

6.5 Hours of Floating Work Hours (4 hours for the meetings and 2.5 hours for reading)


Join the Ohio Department of Education for a summer virtual book study based on The Writing Revolution. This book study is an opportunity for educators across the state to collaborate, brainstorm and discuss ways to support students with explicit writing instruction.

Students often struggle with the writing process, so this discussion group will cover topics like constructing complex sentences, developing thought-provoking paragraphs and writing coherent compositions. Participants will share ideas about providing just-in-time writing instruction with an overall goal of accelerating student learning.


The strategies shared can be used with any curriculum and across content areas, but most are useful for grades 2 and up. The book study is meant to supplement independent reading with engaging virtual discussion and other hands-on activities.


The district will provide a copies of the text and you may attend a single session or all the sessions. All sessions are free and will be recorded and posted for viewing.

95% Group Intervention Groups K-1

Tuesday, June 7th, 8am-3pm

New London Local Schools via Online

150.00 Stipend for attendance. (Pay on June 24th)



Launching Intervention Groups (LIGs) Initial Training: The goal of initial training for launching

intervention groups is to prepare educators (teachers, interventionists, Title I, Special Educators, Education assistants, etc.) to work effectively within a MTSS / RTI model. Grade levels are grouped in a way that allows each to focus on the critical diagnostic measures and instructional strategies that pinpoint and address specific skill deficit areas, and allows teachers to monitor the effectiveness of instruction, adjusting as needed. During this initial training educators will:

  • Begin to develop a common language related to assessment and instruction
  • Develop an understanding of the difference between Tier I (Core) instruction and Intervention.
  • Consider the best model for delivering intervention instruction and see the possibilities (Walk to Read model).
  • Become familiar with the grade level appropriate continuum (or continua) that represent specific skills that must be addressed, from the easiest to more complex (Advanced Phonological Awareness; Blending; Phonics)
  • Have the opportunity to learn and practice administering and analyzing diagnostic assessments (PASI / PSI) including how to form appropriate groups based on lowest skill deficit areas
  • Have the opportunity to learn and practice delivering instruction using the intervention materials they will be teaching from
  • Refine their understanding and practice of the Gradual Release of Responsibility approach to instruction (I Do, We Do, You Do)

Mathematize It! Math Summer Book Study (Multiple Dates)

Wednesday, June 1st, 8am

This is an online event.

Floating Work Day Hours for participation in the book study. (Hours to be determined as soon as the schedule is release. I am planning for 6.5 hours).


Help students reveal the math behind the words

“I don’t get what I’m supposed to do!” This is a common refrain from students when asked to solve word problems.

Solving problems is about more than computation. Students must understand the mathematics of a situation to know what computation will lead to an appropriate solution. Many students often pluck numbers from the problem and plug them into an equation using the first operation they can think of (or the last one they practiced). Students also tend to choose an operation by solely relying on key words that they believe will help them arrive at an answer, which without careful consideration of what the problem is actually asking of them.

Mathematize It! Going Beyond Key Words to Make Sense of Word Problems, Grades 3-5 shares a reasoning approach that helps students dig into the problem to uncover the underlying mathematics, deeply consider the problem’s context, and employ strong operation sense to solve it. Through the process of mathematizing, the authors provide an explanation of a consistent method—and specific instructional strategies—to take the initial focus off specific numbers and computations and put it on the actions and relationships expressed in the problem.

Sure to enhance teachers’ own operation sense, this user-friendly resource for Grades K-2, 3–5, 6-8

• Offers a systematic mathematizing process for students to use when solving word problems • Gives practice opportunities and dozens of problems to leverage in the classroom • Provides specific examples of questions and explorations for all four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) with whole numbers, fractions, and decimals • Demonstrates the use of concrete manipulatives to model problems with dozens of short videos • Includes end-of-chapter activities and reflection questions

How can you help your students understand what is happening mathematically when solving word problems? Mathematize it!


If you're a 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade math teacher (or even outside of these grade levels you can join and apply the strategies to your grade level with the Mathematize K-2 or 6-8 book), join us for a book study! We will be working through parts of Mathematize It! starting in June. More details will be released soon! Be sure to add your name to the book study participant list to get the schedule, any updates, and workbook as they are released!
