President Schilling’s 2023 Convention Greeting Link

FOR PRE-REGISTERED SESSIONS PLEASE USE THE PRE-REGISTRATION LINK IN THE SESSION DESCRIPTION. The pre-registration web page is https://www.pdtca.org/pre-registration.html Adding the session to your Sched schedule does not mean you are pre-registered.  Pre-registration is now closed. The pre-registration page has an email link if you need to request to be removed from a session so someone on the waiting list can have your spot - top right of the page. For changes or signup come to the convention information desk at/after 1:00 pm on Thursday, Feb 23rd. Please kindly check Button 3. on the pre-registration page to see if a session has room for you as most of them are full.

You do not need to create a profile and log in to see sessions in Sched. However, if you want to add yourself to a session or evaluate a session you must be logged in.

NOTE TO SPEAKERS: We had planned to have a Zoom help desk, but decided against it.

PRINTABLE CONVENTION AT A GLANCE LINK - Off-Site Addresses are included.

“On the two school days of your assigned teachers’ convention, you have a legal and professional responsibility to attend convention. If you are not able to make it safely to your assigned convention, however, your collective agreement may include impassable roads or inclement weather clauses that you can access. If your collective agreement does not include language specific to road conditions or weather, you may make use of the personal leave clauses of your agreement in most cases. Please be aware that using any of these types of leave may require you to pay substitute costs, forego a portion of your salary and benefits, or report to your school or another work location in your district. Refer to your collective agreement for more information. Should you require any additional information or if you need assistance interpreting your collective agreement, please contact Teacher Employment Services at 1-800-232-7208 or 780-447-9400.”

Supporting mathematics problem solving instruction with metacognitive self-regulation strategies

Feedback form is now closed.
Did you find your students struggling with self-regulation when teaching in online environments?  
In face-to-face environments, teachers use a variety of routines and strategies to support student learning. Many of these routines do not shift well to changing learning environments, nor do they foster independent learning skills. 
Research has shown that metacognitive skills are strong predictors of academic performance. Many interventions on metacognition are stand-alone programs but there is some evidence to suggest that integrating metacognitive instruction within existing curriculum is beneficial for student learning and is more time efficient for educators. Furthermore, metacognitive self-regulation strategies have been proven to improve mathematical problem solving for students, in particular for students with low mathematics performance. 
Using metacognitive strategies, the PASS model provides a math problem solving approach for elementary and junior high students. The PASS model breaks problem solving down into four steps: planning, acting, solving, and showing. Using this model, we will demonstrate how educators can teach students how to use strategies related to planning, organizing, and self-monitoring. The PASS model is designed to be used in multiple learning contexts, including both face-to-face and online environments. This workshop will provide ways educators can incorporate metacognitive strategies into their mathematics problem solving instruction. Participants will be introduced to the PASS model and provided examples of how incorporate the model for their classroom and grade-level curriculum.
