Writing in the Disciplines  and Promoting Student Success in Math workshops are designed to help teachers adapt their teaching style to foster better learning for students who are deaf or hard of hearing, as well as all other students, particularly those with language difficulties. These strategies are based upon research conducted by the Rochester Institute of Technology and the National Institute of Technology for the Deaf (RIT/NTID), the largest mainstream college in the world for deaf or hard of hearing individuals.

The primary audience includes:

general education STEM and ELA teachers
inclusion specialists
local assistive technology specialists
Note: Teams are welcome to attend this training from a school or district. Suggested team members to include are; an ELA general education, a STEM general education, and a Teacher of the Deaf or an Inclusion Specialist.

This workshop will:

Assist in mastering strategies to meet the goals of Universal Design in education so students are college and career ready.
Provide information on designing writing assignments that address “writing to learn.”
Prepare students for STEM career writing that is expected by industry employers.
Provide information on responding to writing errors/skills development within the context of the STEM classroom.
Provide information on effective instructional approaches including cooperative learning, online tutorials, and new strategies for engaging deaf and hard-of-hearing students in learning math.
Guidance for participants to develop an individual “Plan for Change” for writing and mathematics that can be used locally to meet professional development follow-up requirements.

The Writing in the Disciplines workshop includes:

  •  an introduction to the research that supports the Writing in the Disciplines approach and "writing to learn"
  •  the role of low stakes writing
  •  developing appropriate writing assignments
  • responding to student writing especially in the context of a STEM classroom

Each workshop participant will leave with a plan for developing a writing assignment that provides students with writing practice and with the tools to provide constructive feedback.

Students need to be prepared for the changing environment around them. Industry tours allow the student to see all the opportunities that exist – past and present. The world premiere of the Ford Piquette Plant documentary explores the creativity of visionaries who paved the way for our current industries. The conference will also discuss these and other tools available to students and parents to explore various career path options.
