Incubator Session Descriptions:

#Winning Corporate Partnerships: Grant Writing for your School & Classroom

Do you have awesome ideas for your school and classroom and all you need is cash to make your vision a reality….then this session is for you. Learn how to tell a compelling story, understand the winning elements of any proposal, and walk about the door with a roadmap to obtain corporate sponsorship for your school community!!!


Branded: What's Next for your Teacher Brand

We are here to live BIG LIVES. This session will lead participants through a “values excavation” exercise where we will identify the latent and explicit drivers of our lives, craft a mission statement for our own brand and personal purpose and create the space for participants to support each other to further their goals. Participants will leave the session with a powerful & compelling personal mission statement and the opportunity to contribute to the SHARE/SEARCH Board and forge new venues for collaboration.


Be the Catalyst: Individual and Team Coaching for Educators

Coaching and facilitating the growth of other educators is one of the most powerful ways to impact the outcomes for kids beyond your classroom. By approaching coaching work with other educators considering students from the start, it can lead to focused, empowering development that leverages strengths to lead to change. This experience will introduce participants to the Assess-Align-Act coaching framework to guide your work, then will provide time to explore how this framework applies to your unique context. You will leave with a beginning plan for implementing coaching with individual teachers or your team. This experience will appeal to the classroom teacher who informally or formally mentors other teachers, educators who lead a team, or educators in a primary coaching role.


Culturally Responsive Teaching: STEM :: Using Mathematics to Teach Social Justice

Teaching social justice through mathematics allows students to start critically analyze and utilize mathematical knowledge in a more purposeful way. This approach encourages students to interpret and apply mathematics in a way that they may use math to empower their own lives. By including culturally relevant problems and understanding the connection between the students’ world and society as a whole, teachers and student can mathematically analyze the data while working together to encourage real world solutions. In this seminar you will experience a social justice math mini-lesson, distill teacher actions, and maybe start planning a social justice oriented math lesson. This seminar will be tailored towards teachers who teach Math and may be helpful for Science teachers as well. Please bring an upcoming lesson.


Culturally Responsive Teaching: Humanities :: Critical Literacy: Teaching for Agency and Acceleration

Critical literacy is the ability to actively read text in a manner that promotes a deeper understanding of socially constructed concepts; such as power, inequality, and injustice in human relationships. Critical literacy encourages individuals to understand and question the attitudes, values, and beliefs of written texts, visual applications, and spoken words. Facilitating the development of critical literacy promotes the examination and reform of social situations and exposes students to the hidden agendas within texts. Thus, in order to become critically literate, we must teach students to do more than read and write; students should become agents of social change. In this seminar, you will experience a critical literacy mini-lesson, distill teacher actions, and maybe start planning a critical literacy plan for your students. This seminar will be tailored towards teachers who teach Reading/Language Arts and Social Studies. Please bring an upcoming lesson and text you will use.
