Resident Educator Retreat

Connecting OTES and the Resident Educator Program
August 4, 2015 | 8:30-11:30am
The Ohio Teacher Evaluation System and the Resident Educator Program have several aspects which complement and enhance one another. Both of these initiatives are based upon the Ohio Standards for the Teaching Profession. They both are growth models to promote effective instruction for the students of Ohio while assisting teachers in improving their instructional practices. We will discuss how the Teaching and Learning cycle, observation, data and feedback are key to both programs and can assist growth in not only new teachers but their mentors. We will also discuss job imbedded professional development that principals and program coordinators could use to bolster both programs. This session will be helpful to principals, program coordinators, mentors and Resident Educators.

Although this blended learning opportunity is focused on supporting Year-4 Resident Educators, It may also be of interest to Instructional Mentors, RE Program Coordinators and veteran teachers serving as a Colleague to a Year-4 Resident Educator, school principals, district leadership or any teacher wishing to expand their understanding of research-based practice in teacher leadership. Participants will need to bring their own digital personal device. Lunch is included. Facilitated by Georgine Collette and Wendy Nichols.

Mentor REfresh and REnew
August 5, 2015 | 8:30am-3:30pm
The purpose of this blended learning opportunity is to support and enhance the work of Ohio's Instructional Mentors who completed the face-to-face training requirements. Such mentors include those who attended Instructional Mentoring and Resident Educator - 1 in the period of June, 2011 through 2014. It is also designed to support those mentors who attended Resident Educator Mentoring Academy Day 1 and Resident Educator Mentoring Academy Day 2 which became available in June of 2015. It is not a substitute for Mentor Academy certification. Resident Educator Program Coordinators, RESA Facilitators and Building Principals, especially those who have not attended face-face mentor training, should find this course to be an excellent way to expand their general knowledge of the program and to deepen their understanding of the expectations for effective service as an Ohio Instructional Mentor. Lunch is included. Participants will need to bring their own digital personal device. Facilitated by Georgine Collette and Wendy Nichols.

RESA 101: An Overview and Videotaping Tips

Learn the timeline for the assessment, the difference between a facilitator and a mentor, and an overview of the tasks that are part of the assessment. Todd Seymour of the Eastland Career center will provide information about the videotaping portion of tasks 1 & 3. Todd will also provide tips and "lessons learned" from previous years' work with the RESA.

You've Gotta Connect
August 5, 2015
8:30-11:30am
12:30-3:30pm (repeat of AM session)
Join central Ohio teacher, James Sturtevant as he shares engaging strategies just published in his new book: You've Gotta Connect: Building Relationships that Lead to Engaged Students, Productive Classrooms and Higher Achievement. Jim's message is quite simple: We all want the same things for our students: for them to academically achieve excellence in school and college/career options and ultimately, find happiness. These things become more likely, if teachers and students create connections early on to create engaged learners. Strong teacher-student relationships take a teaching job into a teaching joy. Open to any educator.

This session will be helpful to Program Coordinators, Year 3 & 4 Resident Educators and Facilitators. This session is facilitated by Rachel Lang and Carol Marsh. More information coming soon!
