Here we are 12 years into the new millennium but we are still talking about the 21st Century and the changes that need to be made, so why is that? Change takes time and adopting new pedagogy and daily practices takes a new level of comfort that isn't present for many of us. So how do we get there? In this module, participants will examine their current stage of development in the transformation to 21st Century classroom and their own change process while gathering ideas for implementing new technology strategies into current pedagogy. This module, which is geared toward novice technology users, will include activities to help participants find new tools to bring engaging multimedia lessons to their students that met them were they are, as well as help build a personal learning network to provide support and inspiration for moving forward.

Participants will become familiar with research-based principles for teaching gifted readers. Participants will learn to recognize the characteristics of gifted readers and explore options for providing instruction for these students in either regular or special settings. Specifically participants will explore the use of both small group settings and the reader's workshop setting to provide adequately challenging instruction of text through the use of higher-order thinking questioning, rigorous curriculum design, and the use of themes and big ideas. Participants will apply these principles in the design of a unit or lesson on a particular text that can be used in their classroom.

Dr. Bettina Love will be presenting to faculty, staff, and students for 1.5 hours on hip hop pedagogy. Dr. Love's talk will examine the struggles and the possibilities of committing ourselves to Hip Hop civics education and the abolitionist goal of educational freedom, as opposed to reform, and moving beyond what she calls the educational survival complex (i.e. test-taking skills, acronyms, grit, and character education).



This co-curricular global experience is an extension of existing special education methods courses. ECU students will collaborate with teachers and other professionals as they explore integrated and shared education models in Northern Ireland.
