Kentucky International Convention Center

Wednesday–Saturday, February 4–7, 2015

Join Jason W. Krug at KMEA 2015 Professional Development Conference in Louisville, Kentucky. Patti will present two sessions on Friday, February 6th.
Designing Curriculum With Kids in Mind: Veteran teachers know that what is taught does not always equal what is learned! Instruction designed with a focus on the students can result in lessons that have a personal meaning, promote and celebrate what the students already know, and provide the confidence and skills helpful in increased understanding. Sample projects and individual lesson strategies will be highlighted during this session.
Dear New Teacher: In Case You Didn’t Get The Memo, Chaos May Happen: There’s nothing more chilling than a class of students in chaos! With so many teachers listing “classroom management” as a concern, what can be done to be on the ‘offense’ rather than the ‘defense’?

Start Them Off Right: Classroom management is the theme, and a smooth-running classroom is my only dream. How do you teach them what to do—to stop and look and listen to you? Debbie will offer some suggestions that are tried and true.

Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Mode?:Dorian is a knight, an armored, noble man. Phrygian is a girl, who’s walking on her hands. Lydian is a dreamer with curiosity. And all of these characters reside inside of each of us! Debbie will offer creative ways to introduce these modes to your students.
