OCTELA Conferences 2013 and 2012

On March 23, 2013  I chaired presentations by eight of the RSC/OSU teacher-leaders at the Ohio Council of Teachers of English/Language Arts annual conference, held in Worthington.   We had three sessions titled: Teaching and Learning Shakespeare.  Over 50 teachers from all over Ohio attended our sessions.  You can see how engaged people were!

Lorraine Gaughenbaugh, Megan Ballinger, and Alison Volz led a session on Active Rehearsal Room Approaches to Reading

This was the second year we had presented.  In 2012 Amy McKibben, Tonya Peacock, Aubrey Gibson, Janet Benedict, and David Hall presented alongside the teachers who presented in 2013.

NCTE Conferences 2012, 2011, and 2010

In November 2012 I presented in two sessions of the NCTE annual conference in Las Vegas with two of the teachers: Jill Sampson and Jessica Sharp.  We had over 100 people at our sessions.

In November 2011, at the annual conference in Chicago of the National Council of Teachers of English, I presented with four of the teachers in the Professional Development program as part of the OSU/RSC collaboration: high school teachers, Megan Ballinger, David Hall, and Jessica Sharp, and middle school teacher, Jill Sampson.  Over 75 eager participants attended our presentation, 100 Ways to Teach Shakespeare.

At the same conference, I was a discussant for a presentation by Camille Cushman and Lorraine Gaugenbaugh: At the intersection of dramatic play, critical inquiry, and performance in third grade reading instruction: imagining new possibilities for English language learners performing literacy.  Camille graduated in Summer 2011, was my doctoral advisee, and conducted her dissertation in Lorraine’s 3rd grade classroom.

In November 2010, at the annual conference in Orlando FL, Camille, Lorraine, and Harry Gee participated in an all-day workshop on “Ambitious Reading” led by me and Pat Enciso.
