Session 1  • 9:30 a.m. - 10:45 a.m.

“The Trauma – Informed Classroom”
Participants will learn the behavioral signals that often accompany the psychological aftermath of trauma.  Practices that help traumatized students learn and adapt successfully to the classroom environment will be summarized.  The session will conclude with overviewing the policies, methods, and cultures of trauma- informed schools. Participants will be given a resource packet on trauma- informed education.
Presented by: Dr. Heather Hatchett (Main 370)

How to be Successful While Diagnosed with ADHD

Identification of specific characteristics of ADHD and the approaches that can be taken to allow the individual to become successful in their educational process.
Presented by: Sarajane Blatt, RN, MSN (HPB 04)

The Benefits of American Sign Language in Your Classroom With or Without Deaf Students
High School teachers will engage in learning about the benefits of kinesthetic learning for their students by incorporating ASL into their everyday lesson plans.  Teachers will also learn the interpreter’s role and how to use an interpreter in their classroom in the event that they have a deaf student mainstreamed in their classroom.
Presented by: Dawn Caudill (Main 233)

Light, Lasers, and Balloons

Does color affect the absorption of laser light energy? A quick overview of electromagnetic energy and light energy. The experiment is to determine how the different colored balloons would be affected by laser wavelength. Also, light can be broken into component colors using a diffraction grating - waves, light, or any type of wave that goes through a narrow slit spreads out, and they are made in glasses!
Presented by: Larry Feist (Main146)

Session 2 • 11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.

Understanding Your Conflict Orientation
One of the best tools for improving conflict competency is an understanding of our personal tendencies and preferences in the midst of conflict. Mediator and Conflict Coach Geoffrey Woolf will guide participants through the Thomas-Kilmann Conflict-Mode Assessment and discuss strategies for understanding and engaging conflict more effectively.
Presented by: Geoffrey Woolf (Main 372)

Muscles in 3D – Using Clay to Teach Anatomy
Participants will build an anatomical structure using clay as an effective and engaging way to teach the basics of musculoskeletal anatomy. Function is then applied to movement, as muscle function is paired with specific exercises. The technique utilized in this session can be applied to learning the structure and function of bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, as well as the origin, insertion, and action of the muscles.
Presented by: Mindy Piles, MEd, ACSM (HPB 06)

Jeopardy U

Participate in a fast-paced fun game to test your knowledge of Business concepts and general trivia. Walk away with a learning activity you can customize to meet the needs of your content and students.
Presented by: Paula Kirch-Smith & David Hensley (ATLC 328)
It's All About Connectivity
From the Computer Network Administration program come visit the Computer Network Administration labs and view the numerous ways a network is connected. Build a CAT5e cable and connect to a patch panel.
Presented by: Jeff Vetter(ATLC 331)

Session 3 • 1:00 p.m. - 2:15 p.m.

Let the Sunshine In
Plan A – Clear Skies - Teachers will telescopically observe the Sun outside at two wavelengths, optical and H Alpha, and discuss the features we detect as they relate to internal energy processes. Plan B – Cloudy Skies – Teachers will use simple geometry in a lab investigation to calculate the rotational period of the Sun based on the placement of sunspots.
Presented by: Terry Endres (Main 121)

Driving Question Board (DQB) Through Problem Investigations to the Activity Summary Board (ASB)                  
The Driving Question Board (DQB) is a visual organizer for Project-Based Learning (PBL). The premise of PBL is an open-ended driving question or phenomena. The DQB teaching methodology is a visual organizer for PBL. Engaging teachers use the DQB to display the driving question/phenomena as a visual method to display the goal. Allowing students the opportunity to ask questions, and answer the questions in a logic model fashion (from left to right), helps students determine cause-effect relationships, compare & contrast, and apply the knowledge!
Presented by: Angela Thompson, MSN Ed, RN (HPB 04)

Interactive Teaching Strategies: Engaging Students Today  

Many students have a hard time processing information presented in a lecture format. Knowing which information is important and what information supports important facts is a challenge for some students. By incorporating more activities that promote active learning, students are more engaged and increased learning can take place. This workshop will present teaching strategies, targeting various types of learners, that have been found to be successful in helping students understand and apply information.
Presented by: Connie Rose, DNP, RN-BC, CNE (HPB 06)

Applying Trigonometric Functions with Lasers
The purpose this session is to experiment is to determine the wavelength of a laser using a diffraction grating slide and applied trigonometry.  You will leave this session with a diffraction grating slide, a laser pointer presentation remote, and an experiment to use in your own classrooms.
Presented by: Dr. Ralph Whaley (Main 207)

Sweet Success! • 2:30 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
