WEBINAR: DO PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES MATTER?
PBS NewsHour Extra and NewsHour Productions are collaborating with Share My Lesson to bring you a webinar and classroom resources designed to engage students in this year’s upcoming presidential debates.

Lee Banville, Associate Professor of Journalism at the University of Montana and formerly with PBS NewsHour, and Victoria Pasquantonio, education editor with PBS NewsHour and long-time middle and high school social studies teacher will reflect on the first presidential debate of 2016 and present rare footage of presidential candidates talking about their debate experiences. Banville’s book “Debating Our Destiny” captures the presidential debate moments that shaped history through interviews with the candidates from 1976-2004 by PBS NewsHour legend Jim Lehrer. These video clips and classroom resources can help frame classroom discussions about the 2016 election.

The Iron Educator Lesson Design Competition
Limited Capacity seats available

The Iron Educator is a lesson design CONTEST that brings together talented ESL teachers from within your community. It is a unique opportunity for people to push their skills and challenge their ways of teaching.

The goal is to come together and make a team lesson. Participants rapidly prototype lesson designs and inject new ideas to help grow the ESL teaching industry. We share a common theme (introduced on the day of the event) and constraints. We ask participants to create a team lesson from beginning to end in a prescribed time. The brief time span is meant to help encourage creative thinking to result in short but innovative and experimental lessons. We encourage people to try out new ideas and push themselves.

BRING A LAPTOP or TABLET. We'll provide you with other materials. The event will be held at Cal Baptist University in Riverside on Oct. 8, brought to you by CATESOL Inland Empire.

4T Virtual Conference on Digital Writing, Day 2
The 4T Virtual Conference on Digital Writing focuses on the research, pedagogy, and tools of writing in digital spaces in the K-12 classroom. Throughout the virtual sessions, participants will explore the complexities of teaching writing in a digital age in which students potentially play the role of writer, multimedia creator, collaborator, publisher, reader/viewer/audience member, and critic during their online engagement both during and outside of school. This four-day event also provides a space for dialogue between K-12 and university educators about the ways that the teaching of writing is enacted in schools, colleges, workplaces, and communities.

Presenters are educators from K-12 and higher education who have expertise to offer virtually via Blackboard Collaborate. All sessions will be recorded and archived for access by educators who can not attend synchronously.

Submit an idea on The Teachers Guild to help students become civically powerful
Election season is upon us. It’s a time when we are reminded that our voice and our vote matters. As a network of educators, we’ve been asking what our role is in supporting students to understand their civic power, exercise their voice, and take action on the issues they care about.

That’s why, in partnership with ASCD, we’re working with some incredible organizations in civic education to challenge you to help reshape the future of civic education. Together, we're asking you:

How might we prepare our students to be civically powerful and use their unique voices to address issues that matter to them?

One Way Teaching is the Wrong Way to Learning
One of the first things a teacher must do when considering how to teach students is to acknowledge that each student does not learn in the same way. Much of the material used to educate students at grade levels beyond primary school is largely text and lecture based, which have significant limitations and often have barriers to learning. While reading is a very important learning mode, not all students learn effectively from reading. In this webinar, participants will explore some of the barriers in learning content material.

Share your ideas to create #MindblowingSTEM
Ten of the top 14 fastest-growing industries require significant know-how in STEM. But, these industries won’t just perpetuate themselves. They need the next generation of creative problem solvers. As teachers, you are the makers of the next generation of makers. And that’s why today, The Teachers Guild is asking for your ideas to answer the question:

How might we cultivate curiosity and problem-solving in our students through active and authentic STEM?

The Teachers Guild is a creative collaborative out of IDEO and the Riverdale Country School. We’ve also invited nine other partners to join us on this STEM Collaboration. They can’t wait to support you by mentoring your ideas and are excited to support these solutions after the Collaboration ends. These partners include: 4.0 Schools, Autodesk, Bay Area Discovery Museum, California Academy of Sciences, High Tech High, Noble Network, Science with Tom, Spring Branch Independent School District, Steelcase, and WGBH.

Webinar: TAMING THE CAMPAIGN BEAST: TEACHING STRATEGIES AND RESOURCES
Join Teaching Tolerance, the Anti-Defamation League, and Share My Lesson for a reflection on the rhetoric of the 2016 election and its impact on students.

With a few weeks left until the election, we are bringing together two expert organizations to discuss the polarizing nature of the election and the impact they are seeing in communities across the nation.

According to a Southern Poverty Law Center survey of 2,000 teachers, “the presidential campaign is having a profoundly negative impact on school children across the country.” Specifically, the survey found that:

- More than two-thirds of the teachers reported that students – mainly immigrants, children of immigrants and Muslims – have expressed concerns or fears about what might happen to them or their families after the election.
- More than half have seen an increase in uncivil political discourse.
- More than a third have observed an increase in anti-Muslim or anti-immigrant sentiment.
- More than 40 percent are hesitant to teach about the election.

Both organizations will discuss the resources they are using to help teachers discuss the election and counter bias.

#CollaborativePD Twitter Chat
Teachers who embrace new technologies recognize that professional development (PD) can be achieved in part through collaboration with other educators. Professional development in the digital age should be participatory in nature, where ideas and resources are exchanged and incorporated into instruction. For decades, lofty school reform rhetoric has identified the skills and knowledge that have to be integrated into everyday practice.

A collaborative platform that facilitates resource discovery and best practices gives teachers ownership of their own professional development. As personal learning networks expand, teachers achieve more recognition in their school communities and beyond. Ultimately, it’s about empowerment and self-discovery through the expansion of personal learning networks, and the ability to blend in voices, concepts and tools from all over the world.

Limited Capacity seats available

Play is one of the most important rights of childhood, yet it has been overlooked and undervalued in K12 education. Unstructured play in natural settings is critical for nurturing young imaginations. Play that takes place on asphalt and plastic is denatured. This workshop introduces activities that investigate the nature of play and the design of nature play. Leaders draw from art, architecture, child development, engineering, and ecological design research. Using design thinking, research, process and making, participants experience and leave with free eLearning support to ideate, analyze, diagram and conceptually prototype site-specific kinds of play on their school grounds. Participants are empowered to become nature play initiators, place makers and urban stewards of the built and natural environment in their school communities and on their school grounds.

Many schools have moved to establish specialist data science programs, but is that focus enough to meet the rapidly changing needs of employers?

Join the conversation on October 23rd to engage with academic and industry leaders. Learn how others are driving the evolution. Questions on the table for the day include:
* How will these emerging fields evolve?
* What competencies will every student require?
* What competencies will specialists require?
* What competencies will business expect students acquire?

If you are responsible for curriculum and program design, or for building the talent pool for your organization this event is tailor made for you. Learn how to outthink the skills gap.
