This high-energy presentation provides teachers and school leaders with a variety of simple-yet-innovative teaching strategies that will enhance the learning within any classroom. Topics to be addressed include differentiated methods for increasing content-specific vocabulary, how to build rapport with students and parents through writing, and engaging ways for students to summarize their learning. Each strategy presented will be modeled, and participants will leave with a clear understanding of what the strategy is as well as how to implement it.

Regardless of the technique, each of the methods described can be easily adapted to fit within any curriculum, regardless of grade or subject matter.
