Room to Write: Time and Space to Celebrate TeacherWords

Description: Have you been attending to the writing of students you teach, not finding room to write yourself? Have you been storing up ideas all year for your own writing? And when you do have a moment to write and reflect, could your writer’s mind use a jumpstart? Have a book, a play, a blog in mind for yourself?

Room to Write might be the answer. A week-long writing workshop for and with other teachers. Your chance to reflect and write about things you have been wanting to get out and onto the page. An opportunity to play with words, images, ideas. Inspiration from a range of prompts and your fellow writers.

Join this writing and response workshop held on the UC Berkeley campus and make the room to write in your life.

Applied Grammar for Teachers: Why, What, How and When

  • 3250 19th Avenue San Francisco, CA, 94132 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Description: This course takes a practical approach to grammar instruction, focusing on methods that work best to improve student writing. We will look at exciting ways to advance students’ “sentence power” but also to improve their sentence correctness. It assumes that the best approaches to grammar instruction tend to be ones that closely match what effective writers do when they compose and correct sentences. It also assumes that students learn best through constructivist classroom practices such as inquiry, collaboration, focused practice, and modeling, integrated within a purposeful curriculum.

We will inquire into the why, what, how, and when of grammar instruction, building a logical and adaptable framework for planning and sequencing, and developing principles that will help teachers make informed choices for their students and their curricular goals. We will examine a variety of activities, scaffolds (deductive and inductive), and tasks to best serve students, including English language learners. Sessions will focus on language variety, and code-switching; sentence rhetoric and style; issues of correctness (learning how to diagnose, prioritize and respond to error); and planning within and between lessons—with a particular eye to being both systematic and contextual in our designs.

Beyond the Research Paper: Project-Based Methods to Elevate Civic Discourse

  • 2121 Berkeley Way Berkeley, CA, 94704 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Description: Now more than ever teachers need to design writing prompts that aim to elevate civic discourse. In this session, participants will experience project-based, student-centered methods that promote critical questioning and bring the researched argument to life – especially for Long-Term English Learners. Each practice is designed to spark lively student-to-student discussion about complex text. Ultimately, these discussions serve as bridges to authentic argumentative writing. By emphasizing the reading, writing, speaking connection, project-based methods honor the diverse linguistic assets our students possess and encourage them to advocate for changes needed in their communities. Texts used during the workshop will focus on the theme of restorative justice, but materials are easily adaptable to other themes. The session is ideal for humanities and English courses taught at the secondary or college level.

Bay Area Writing Project (Part 1) : It's NOT Whatever

Bay Area Writing Project (Part 1) : It's NOT Whatever

It’s whatever. People say this when they feel they are powerless and must accept a situation. Assata Shakur, however, asserted the more we get used to our oppression, the more we think of it as the normal state of things. Such a phenomena is created by both structural and cultural conditions, as well as one's personal relationship to change and sense making. If this problem can be located at these intersections, so can potential solutions. “It’s NOT Whatever,” allows us to re-imagine a “dangerous” (Ladson Billings, 1999) kind of teacher development that authentically cultivates humanizing, critically conscious, intellectually engaged, and reflective practitioners.

Cost: FREE

THE ARTIST'S SECRET GEOMETRY: Composing in the Round

THE ARTIST'S SECRET GEOMETRY: Composing in the Round

Math in art has been flirted with for a couple of centuries, but the greatest works of all cultures most certainly used these ideas. Geometry had a role in artistic composition—aka spatial relationships in works of art from all cultures. Through many years of investigating the role of intentional geometry used in most every culture and time, certain rules and psychological impact seem constant.

There are many areas of geometry which can be taught and applied to demonstrate this, but for this workshop we will concentrate on the use of simple polygons (triangles, squares, pentagons, hexagons, etc) in the composition of tondos, i.e., round paintings, drawings, ceramics, metalwork, etc. It's simple but quite profound and even used today in the designs of coins, bowls, plates, etc. In this workshop we will see examples from many cultures and times, and participants will be provided with instructions for drawing them, involving a compass, straightedge and colored pencils.

Michael Schneider teaches this topic to his art students at CCA, and he is generously sharing his enthusiasm with us. Registration includes materials.

Event Cost: $45
