Action Civics For Youth Participation
This session is an exploration of "Action Civics," a project-based learning approach to civic education designed to promote deeper civic knowledge, skills and motivation in students by having them investigate and take real political action on community issues. Participants will practice democratic pedagogies and curricular approaches to Action Civics, analyzing them for future use in their classrooms and across districts.
In the current political climate, leaders and educators across the country are asking: How can schools actively prepare young people to become effective, informed and engaged citizens? Action Civics provides a framework for engaging students in positive politics, by having them identify and research local community issues that directly affect their lives, then advocate for real solutions to those issues by directly engaging decision-makers. Action Civics recognizes that, in order to learn to become effective citizens, students must get out from behind the textbook and learn civics by doing civics.
Facilitated by Generation Citizen, a leading nonprofit in the field of civic education, this workshop is designed for educators and administrators who recognize the urgency of revitalizing civic education, and are seeking innovative, student-centered ways to help young people discover their voices and feel excited to participate in the political process.
Participants will hear from a Generation Citizen teacher about a new framework for student-centered democratic classroom culture, practice pedagogies for a democratic classroom, and see Action Civics in action. They will take away a resource on how Action Civics Supports Equity in the Classroom, and tools to bring Action Civics to life in their classroom. It will additionally offer resources and suggestions for how to advocate to your district to bring Action Civics to more classrooms.

GeoQuest: Choose Your Own Adventure!
The Oklahoma Geological Survey (OGS) has numerous resources for K-12 classroom teachers that focus on Earth Science, career exposure, and STEM integration. This session will begin with a brief overview of several of the free Earth Science resources available to educators in Oklahoma.
Next, we will model an activity we've designed called a GeoQuest. This flexible geology journey will provide teachers with a framework to develop their own GeoQuest. As participants solve short geology puzzles as a group, they receive a geology specimen (rock, mineral, or fossil) for their collection. After solving all of the puzzles on their GeoQuest, participants will receive a "Rock Placemat" to help them identify the parts of their collection, which they keep and may continue to explore as a class or individually.
The GeoQuest is flexible in length and difficulty, and can be adapted for different groups of students. After a demo of what the GeoQuest looks like, teachers will work in small groups to develop a few puzzles of their own to get started, linking the puzzle to a performance expectation or disciplinary core idea. The session presenter will be available as a resource following the K20 ILI to assist and provide feedback on GeoQuests developed by teachers. Once complete, teachers can request that OGS deliver the geology specimens to those teachers interested in enacting the GeoQuest in their own classrooms. The specimens will include a mixture of rocks, minerals, and fossils, and students will keep these collections as a personal kit.
The practices that this session will focus on include authentic teaching examples, personalized environments for different age groups, teacher collaboration, inquiry about specimens, and community connections to OGS resources. Participants will leave the session with a greater awareness of the free resources available from the Oklahoma Geological Survey, as well as some brainstormed activities to continue to work on as they complete their own GeoQuest program.

Using Tech to Bridge the Gap for EL Families
How can young English Learners have the literacy experiences necessary to help them succeed in the 21st century classroom? Through a Kindle Fire initiative at our school, we were able to provide students with a customized audiobook library for at-home reading with families. Peer tutors in our building created these audio files in English, which paired with a variety of bilingual books across grade levels and various genres. These books were checked out through our library and taken home where parents could read along and learn English with their students throughout the week. Our students were able to experience great success in their language proficiency,enjoy the benefits of boosted self-esteem and confidence, and spend quality time with their families each week. We are so excited to continue to address this equity concern in our student population and share what we have learned in the hopes that your building can experience the same successes!

Amp Up Your AM Announcements with Student Videos
Do your students not pay attention to morning announcements because it is just a voice in the sky? Starting and implementing a video production lab can help make this time of day more interactive and meaningful. This session will discuss simple steps used with PK-5 Elementary-aged students to implement a lab within a school. You will be able to watch a finished, student-made announcement. You will be introduced to apps, materials, and topics used during the production process. Using a video lab, students gain ownership of the finished video while learning editing, collaboration, and communication skills. You will take away information needed to set up your own lab at your school. Your school will gain authentic teaching, shared leadership, and teacher/student collaboration with a lab. You can also bring in community connections with student made commercials. Come join the session where you can take information back and implement immediately at your school.

OK Computer Science Standards
What does the adoption of OK Computer Science standards mean for our classrooms? Our session will spread the word of the OK Computer Science standards, and provide insight to initiatives that are taking place across the state.
Participants will hear about the development of the standards, complete a sample lesson, and discuss where these standards can start fitting into the general classroom. We will share resources and express the importance of aligning activities to these standards. Computer Science is projected as the most unfilled STEM career field and our students need to be prepared.

Schoolwide Seesaw Success
Students who create authentic learning experiences using technology need to have a space to save and share their creations with others. The Seesaw app is perfect for creating digital student portfolios. Attendees will be introduced to the Seesaw app and learn how it can be easily used to store and share authentic pieces. Come hear how Northmoor PK-5 Elementary teachers were able to set up schoolwide digital classrooms in a variety of subject areas. Participants will have the opportunity to experience what it is like to implement Seesaw in the classroom and walk through the process of setting up an account. Teachers are able to collaborate by connecting classrooms and sharing authentic projects with one another.

Technology Enhances the Writing Process
Sometimes writing can be a challenge. Using technology can be an instant motivator for some students. In this session, those attending will participate in lessons created to meet the multi-modal literacies standard, as well as the writing process standard. Participants will become the students as we demonstrate writing lessons used in our classrooms. These lessons are effortless and do not require advanced technology training.

OSSBA Services - Continuous Strategic Improvement
Little in your community is more precious than the hopes and dreams of its children. As a school district leader, you know communities and policymakers have never had higher expectations for schools as places of learning, as places for discovery and as a safety net. Schools can't and won't achieve those expectations to make children's hopes and dreams become reality -- by accident. School districts need a vision for the future and a plan to get there. We can help.
OSSBA offers rich professional development for district leaders through the partnership with the K20 Center and offers a stakeholder and data-driven strategic planning process that will engage and reconnect your community to your district.
