2020 Fall Conference

October 19-20, 2020

Call for Presenters

Conceptual Teaching at its Best!

Instruction and Assessment with Application in Mind
Submission Deadline: May 13, 2020

The performance requirements for the state assessment are moving teachers to approach instruction in a new way.  Teaching must move beyond facts, procedures, information, and skills to application of this knowledge in the form of scenarios and problem-solving situations. The 2020 SMCAA Fall Conference is looking for proposals to present in breakout session on the following topics and successful practices:

  • Transforming facts and skills into application assessment questions.  How you have done this in your classroom, building or district
  • Conceptual teaching strategies in the content areas: A variety of content and grade levels
  • Planning for conceptual understanding in the content areas: A variety of content and grade levels
  • Assessing student work using rubrics, scoring guides to identify conceptual understanding
  • Simple ways you can change your teaching from process and procedure to concepts and application

We know that there is outstanding education happening in classrooms, buildings and districts across the state.  Please consider sharing your expertise with us at our Fall Conference!
