      Managing your classroom is essential in creating an effective
teaching atmosphere. Being organized and in control
empowers you to be successful. Your students will
notice too and hopefully adopt some of your
organizational skills as their own.

Teachers will benefit from Beth Evans’s thirty
years of classroom experience as she shares ideas
and information about how to organize and manage
your classroom during the week before school, the first week of school and
the entire school year.

                NEW OFFERING!
Attention Science Teachers in Grades 4 & 5
       Science at Work –
Making Science Real for Students
 Date:               July 7 – 11
 Location:           OU Athens, McCracken Hall
Sponsored by Akron Global Polymer Academy & Southeast Center for Excellence in
Mathematics and Science (SEOCEMS).

          3 graduate credit hours at a reduced fee

Program Focus: The course will focus on the following Standards in Science:
                   - Physical Science Standard
                   - Science and Technology Standard
                   - Scientific Inquiry Standard
Participants will learn by actually doing a number of hands-on activities during the program
allowing for easier implementation in their classroom.

Program Goals: Enrich teachers’ pedagogical skills and content knowledge by offering:
      an experiential knowledge of the 5-E learning cycle model of instruction;
      a connection of the institute’s activities to the standards underlying science instruction in
       grades 4-5;
      classroom ready, engaging units that meet Ohio’s Science and Technology Standard;
      content updates of core physical science concepts;
      ways to make science teaching more student-centered and less teacher-directed;
      specific strategies to assess students’ learning;
      connections of institute activities to other content disciplines (math, social studies,
       language arts).

        Attention Language Arts /Library Media Teachers!

                                                      Summer Institute at
                                                  Shawnee State University
              July 14—17 & July 21—24, 2008
      9:00 – 3:00 in the Clark Memorial Library Alcove
This Summer Institute is designed to provide information and practical methods to Ohio’s English
Language Arts teachers to enable them to increase competencies in teaching writing in their
content area. Emphasizing the Ohio Academic Standards in Writing (Writing Process, Writing
Application, and Writing Conventions) the program focuses on methods of teaching writing to
enhance current instruction in grades 6-12.

This year’s Institute offers area teachers and librarians/media specialists the rare
opportunity to collaborate. Specifically, we will examine how to use academic research data bases
and TRAILS (Tools for Real Time Assessment of Information Literacy Skills). We will explore the
latest avenues to access research and actively apply our findings while composing our own
investigative essays.

In addition, we will experiment with innovative ways in which to use children’s literature to teach
writing.* We will also analyze how we can meet our State Content Standards while working with
poetry in our classrooms. And finally, we will focus on the close examination of several
professional articles about teaching and learning.

Free! 1-4 graduate credit hours for teachers who participate all eight days.
Free! 1-2 graduate credit hours for librarians/media specialists who participate
          for two days (July 14-15)

         and a more accelerated pace during the summer.

        Complete the program in 5 quarters.
        Close to home. All classes will be held at OU Southern.

   ITSCO 7th Annual




                             Academy
  Over the past few years, students have embraced the Internet as a medium for social
  interaction. According to the Pew/Internet study Teens and Social Media, “some 93% of teens
  use the Internet, and more of them than ever are treating it as a venue for social interaction – a
  place where they can share creations, tell stories, and interact with others.” The study goes on
  to say, “…that 64% of online teens ages 12-17 have participated in one or more among a wide
  range of content-creating activities on the internet, up from 57% of online teens in a similar
  survey at the end of 2004.”

  This year’s Summer Academy, “Building Curriculum Through Web 2.0”, will focus on
  these Web 2.0 tools and how they may be integrated into existing curriculum. Participants will
  have the opportunity to work with the technologies as well as take part in an online learning
  environment.

  The Academy will cost $325 for ATS members (check our website to see if your school district
  has ATS membership) and $650 for basic membership.

      Certificate of Highly Qualified Professional Development (25 contact hours)
      1-2 quarter hours of Graduate Credit available from Ohio University ($150/hour)
      1 hour of additional graduate credit available by participating in an online final project

  This Summer Academy is intended for neither the extreme novice or the very proficient
  computer user. Rather, we are looking for teachers who would like to infuse their curriculum
  with new technology and who need a little guidance to help them think -- and ultimately leap --
  outside the box.
