VA War Memorial Summer Teacher Institutes – FREE

Teacher Institutes: Summer 2018

The Virginia War Memorial Education Department is happy to be hosting five FREE 2018 summer Teacher Institutes. Each Teacher Institute runs from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. and includes a complimentary boxed lunch for all attendees as well as classroom resources. Teachers receive five recertification hours for each Institute they attend.

Thursday, July 12: WWII: Beyond the Textbook Part 1 – Eve of War

We all know that textbooks can’t cover every single detail of an event. Often you get the who, what, when, and where, but what might be missing is the why. Sometimes, to find out the reality of a situation, you have to do a little digging of your own. In this Teacher Institute, learn the best strategies to get into the nitty gritty historical details through digital newspaper archives, magazines, interviews, letters, and diaries. You’ll also learn how to use these skills to discuss in-depth, the causes of World War II, like the Japanese Oil Embargo or life inside Nazi Germany. This is part one of a two part “Beyond the Textbook” series, spanning from Versailles to Pearl Harbor.

Thursday, July 19: WWII: Beyond the Textbook Part 2 – End of the War

We all know that textbooks can’t cover every single detail of an event. Often you get the who, what, when, and where, but what might be missing is the why. Sometimes, to find out the reality of a situation, you have to do a little digging of your own. In this Teacher Institute, learn the best strategies to get into the nitty gritty historical details through digital newspaper archives, magazines, interviews, letters, and diaries. Learn how to lead in-depth discussions on topics like the Invasion of Normandy or President Truman’s decision to use the atomic bomb, using rarely seen primary sources. This is part two of a two part “Beyond the Textbook” series, spanning from Normandy to Nagasaki.

Thursday, July 26: Making Sense of the War on Terror

How do you teach a war that’s still ongoing?  How do you teach a conflict that is so broadly defined? This teacher workshop-style event will focus on discussing the definition of terrorism and the challenges that come with explaining an unconventional war. VWM educators will lead discussions and debates about the Global War on Terror and how best to engage students in learning about a conflict that has been going on their entire lives. This is the discussion-driven part one of a two-part Global War on Terror series.

Thursday, August 2: Where were you on 9/11?

It was arguably the most important single day of our lifetimes.  Hear from a variety of speakers about their experiences on 9/11/2001, and how it affected their lives soon afterwards. Learn how to teach about the events of 9/11 and the Global War on Terror to students who were not alive or have no memory of that time. How did the world change? How can you use your own experiences and the stories of others to teach modern history? This is the speaker-driven part two of a two-part Global War on Terror series.

Thursday, August 9: The Vietnam Era through Film

War movies have always been a popular source of entertainment and information, shaping the way that certain events are viewed in the eyes of the public. Which Vietnam War movies get it right, and which miss the mark entirely? How can you tell? Hear our educators and veterans speak about the history of the Vietnam War in film, see some clips, and learn how to use movies in the classroom to teach history as well as historical inaccuracy.

We look forward to seeing you this summer!

Fostering Collective Efficacy: 3 Enabling Conditions

Monday, May 21, 2018 – 3:30pm PDT

Presented by Jenni Donohoo

What matters most in raising student achievement? Research identifies collective efficacy—the shared belief that what we do really matters—as the number-one factor. When teachers believe that, together, they can positively impact student learning, it results in a number of productive patterns of behavior: deeper implementation of high-yield strategies, increased teacher leadership, high expectations, and a strong focus on academic pursuits. Join us to learn more about what collective efficacy is, why it’s important, and how to foster efficacy to ensure equity, promote well-being, and enhance public confidence in education.

New Virginians: 1619–2019 and Beyond

Immigration in Virginia: Democracy, Diversity, and Opportunity

Library of Virginia

800 E Broad St

Richmond, VA 23219

Lodging will be provided for the first 25 attendees who live 70 miles or more outside of Richmond city proper.

Less than fifty years ago, only one in every 100 people living in Virginia had been born outside the United States. In 2012, the figure was one in nine. Recent estimates place the number of foreign-born Virginians at just under one million, and nearly half of these new residents are between the ages of 25 and 44. What will this mean, and what does it already mean, for public education, electoral politics, local economies, and a social fabric that has long been held together by a sense of shared history? The composite portrait of Virginia is becoming more complex almost daily and more challenging to an older, simpler understanding of what it means to be a Virginian. The challenge and opportunity is to reconsider what kind of place Virginia is and what kind of place it should be, or can be. Whether our roots in the state go back ten thousand years, ten generations, or ten weeks, we must create the map together.

Join Library of Virginia staff members and guest speakers in this year’s three-day Teacher Institute, presented in collaboration with Virginia Humanities and with support from the 2019 Commemoration. The ninth annual Brown Teacher Institute will examine the implications of immigration and the experiences of immigrants as they come to Virginia, focusing on the themes of democracy, diversity, and opportunity. Teachers will explore how to use primary sources to enhance student learning in their classrooms, discover new digital resources, and learn about the lives of immigrant and refugee students and their families in anticipation of the Library’s upcoming exhibition, New Virginians: 1619–2019 and Beyond, on display December 10, 2018–November 23, 2019.

Detailed Schedule will be announced soon. Contact Catherine Fitzgerald Wyatt (804)692-3999 or Emma Ito (804) 692-3726 for any questions.

Newsletter, 4-23-18

Mrs. Martie’s Newsletter for the week of April 23, 2018

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Please remember to send in the Field Day lunch preference sheet with your student. We will have field day on May 4th, rain or shine. Each grade level has been assigned a color to wear. We will be wearing YELLOW t-shirts. IF you have a t-shirt that is primarily yellow but has graphics that will be fine. If you want to purchase a yellow shirt, Michaels has them for $3.00 online on sale from $3.99. The North Suffolk Walmart had v neck yellow shirts in the boys’ dept. for $3.47. I do have a FEW yellow shirts I’ve collected over the years to loan for that day if necessary. Please let me know if you will need to “borrow” one from me.

Many students are out of notebook paper, crayons, and need a new reading notebook. Please check with your student about their supplies

Please check that your student is doing their homework.
Important things to know about homework are:
• Please make sure your child reads every night (preferably to you) for 20 minutes. This is in addition to the 20 minutes of homework allowed by the school district. They can check out books on Monday during library. However, if they need a new one before then, they can go before school.
• The spelling words are part of the reading skills for that week so please check that they are doing one menu item nightly and returning the assignment to school every day.
• The children now have 12 activity choices.

 

In Reading we will continue to work on all the skills I’ve listed previously.

In Science this week, continue learning about plants.

In Math we will continue learning about probability and continue to practice adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers. If you could practice adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers with your student it would be a great help. This is a VERY difficult skill for many students.

In Social Studies we will continue learning about economics.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Cindy Martie
Cynthiamartie@spsk12.net
