The Summer Conference offers two incredible opportunities for professional learning for Collaborative Classroom educators. If you're brand new to our programs, we recommend attending both the Getting Started Professional Learning Institute and the Main Conference.
Register for all three days for only $200!
The Getting Started Professional Learning Institute is designed for educators who are new to a Collaborative Classroom program and want to gain a better understanding of the pedagogy, structure, and intentional design of the program. This institute may also be beneficial for educators seeking a "refresher" and who are returning to teaching a program after a hiatus. During this Institute, you’ll have the opportunity to learn how to leverage your program materials to plan for instruction. This Institute offers sessions for getting started with Being a Reader, Being a Writer, Caring School Community, Making Meaning and Book Clubs, and SIPPS, as well as sessions specifically designed for administrators and coaches who are getting started with using the Learning Portal.

Opening Keynote: 12:00 PM–12:45 PM
Day 1 Keynote Presentation: Zaretta Hammond, author of Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain
Teaching Reimagined: Leveraging the Emotions of Cognition
As we begin to think about how we can help students overcome the impact of the pandemic on their learning, we have to live at the intersection of the science of learning, the science of reading, and culturally responsive instruction. We need to understand the emotions of cognition and reframe productive struggle and intellectual curiosity as the pathways to joy in learning. During this talk, Ms. Hammond will reframe engagement and offer a counter-narrative to thinking about it as solely a motivational issue. She will help participants understand the emotions of cognition as the path to liberatory literacy development.
Day 2 Keynote Presentation: Margaret Goldberg, co-founder of The Right to Read Project
The Thrill of Skill
Ms. Goldberg will share the experiences of students and teachers who discovered confidence and skill in meaningful practice. Their stories will be analyzed alongside the Conscious Competence Ladder, a model that explains how our level of competence impacts our perception of ourselves, our work, and our students.
