         Wednesday, April 11, 2011, 12:30-2:50 p.m. (timeframe is tentative, time may be adjusted slightly to
            accommodate the day's schedule)
         Round Table Presenters must register for the conference and pay the registration fee. See Registration
            Form at
         Round Table topics are any best practices and bright ideas you wish to share. Preference will be given to
            those that focus on A-Assessment, B-Brain-based education, and C-Common Core State Standards.
         Set up of Roundtables will occur at the end of the lunch break, with presenters in place to begin immediately
            after a short introductory general session.
         Roundtable Presentations are 20 minutes in length, with a 2 minute break between sessions. It is
            imperative that you plan your session to last 20 minutes and that you adhere to the planned start and stop
            times. Please plan accordingly.
         You will present your Roundtable 2 or 3 times to 2 or 3 different groups of people, depending on the
            number of Round Tables accepted. Anticipated audience size is 10-15 people each time.
         Your presentation method may be “lecture,” lecture & discussion, demonstration & discussion,
            demonstration only, hands-on participation, other method of your choice, or any combination of your
         The room will be set to accommodate as many people as possible so that attendees have flexibility
            regarding what they attend. Attendees may need to try to cover more than one session at the same time so
            be forewarned that a few may leave early or arrive late. We recommend ignoring them and urge you to
            understand their needs based on teaching multiple subjects in any one semester.
         At a minimum, a one-page handout for each Roundtable will be included in the conference materials. You
            may provide additional handouts for those who attend your Roundtable.

Presenters are responsible for supplies they need for their Round Table and their own presentation equipment and
supplies. Computers, if used, must be able to be operated on battery. Electricity will NOT be available. Internet access
is available at no additional cost but download speeds cannot be guaranteed.
