15B Storying

15B Storying Lives/Selves to Foster Community and Strengthen Culturally Relevant Pedagogies Jen Ammenti, Associate Program Consultant, New Teacher Center; Emily Bailin Wells, Doctoral Candidate, Teachers College, Columbia University and Curriculum Consultant for The Media Spot, LLC Before teachers can be truly culturally relevant, they must first engage in authentic identity work. In this session, participants will engage in multimodal storytelling practices to deconstruct and reflect on how their positionality and lived experiences inform how they see themselves, others, and the world around them. This reflective multimodal inquiry can be used across disciplines, age groups, educational spaces, and organizations. The presenters will share a collection of personal artifacts that document their own explorations of self over the last few years. These will serve as an anchor for the workshop. Track: Equity and Access 16B Mindsets for 21st Century Mentoring/Coaching Anne Childers and Peter Mlot, Instructional Designers, New Teacher Center Mindsets for 21st Century Coaching promote agency, highlight multiple pathways for demonstrating understanding, and engage in collaboration that facilitates learning. The same holds true for 21st Century Teaching. Questions that coaches and mentors ask have the ability to promote agency of adult learners, and teachers ask students these same questions to build agency in learners. Transparency in coaching conversations promotes self-awareness of learning needs and unlocks potential. Teachers can employ a similar approach through engaging and reflecting in conversations with students about their learning needs. In this session, participants will identify how to ask questions to promote agency and self-awareness that create mindsets for 21st Century Learning in themselves and in the communities they support. Track: College, Career, and Community Ready 17B FEATURED SPEAKER BRIAN DASSLER Brian Dassler is deputy chancellor of the Florida Department of Education.

Brian earned bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees from the University of Florida where he has twice been named an outstanding young alumnus. Growth Mindset: The Foundation of Florida’s Strategy to Improve Outcomes for All Students A growth mindset, the belief that intelligence is malleable, is central to the goal of success for every student. This session will introduce the state of Florida’s strategy to ensure that every student is developing a growth mindset and that every educator is applying a growth mindset. Participants will develop the outline of a plan for making growth mindset a foundation for their school or system. Track: Mentoring and Coaching 18B Making a Mixed Mentoring Model Work: Lessons from Hawai‘i’s 3-Year Pilot Dawn Paresa, Program Consultant, New Teacher Center; Keri Shimomoto and Carolyn Tsukamoto, Educational Specialists, Hawai‘i Department of Education While full-release mentoring models produce the best results, budget realities often dictate using a combination of both full-release and school-level mentors to serve new teachers. This session will share the Mo‘olelo (story) of Hawai‘i’s 3-year journey to implement two different mentoring models, and the challenges and successes experienced along the way that resulted in a successful mixed model. Discover strategies used to improve mentor quality, make strategic program adaptations, engage principals for commitment, and advocate for program sustainability. Participants will make connections to their own work and leave with artifacts of program practice. Track: Programmatic Development and Sustainability 6 Symposium on Teacher Induction REALIZ E
