eliminate the most challenging staff members. The workshop is designed to help develop specific
strategies to address the influence of negative teachers, and attempt to turn the attitude towards
being a positive force on the faculty.

Fluency in reading has been found to be a critical element of any successful reading program (National
Reading Panel 2000). Despite its importance many students fail to achieve sufficiently in this area and
many teachers do not feel completely competent in their knowledge and teaching of this reading
component. In this workshop, Dr. Tim Rasinski will provide theoretical and research background and
definition to fluency. He will share approaches to assessing and monitoring progress in this key aspect
of reading. Finally, he will share effective and engaging strategies for teaching this all-important
reading component that will move students toward better comprehension and greater proficiency in
reading.

Project CRISS (CReating Independence through Student-owned Strategies) focuses on helping
secondary students read, understand, organize, and study textbook material to facilitate their
learning. The strategies were originally developed to enhance students' reading and writing skills, but
have powerful application in all content areas. Project CRISS is an excellent repertoire of learning
strategies that is based on the premise that students must integrate new information with prior
knowledge and be actively involved in their own learning.

CRISS can be an excellent component to your RtI's Tier 1 and Tier 2 initiatives.

Presenter(s): Charity Preston

Parent-Teacher Conferences can be very frustrating for all involved. The parents may or may not have
had a good previous experience in school and feel uncomfortable in the atmosphere. The teacher who
has to prepare all the materials, must give only a snapshot of the student because there is only so much
time during the allotted night; usually only 15 minutes until another parent comes through the door.
Lastly, the students are nervous as they wait at home for mom or dad to come home and "discuss" their
report card. All are involved in such a minuscule way and never really involved at all.

Congress @ IU, and the National Conference of State Legislators to create government and history
resources for grades 4-12. Each state can distribute 100 sets of these FREE civics educational
resources to help teach and support literacy with nonfiction text, research for understanding
representative democracy, civics, the legislative process along with every citizen's role in government.
Each attendee receives one complete set of free educational resources.

Workshop includes: presentation by a government official, introduction to the new resources, sample
simulation, ISAT reader response practice activity for nonfiction text and hands on time exploring the
