SMCAA 2015 Summer Conference

What ‘IF’…the Score Took Care of Itself!”
June 22-23, 2015

Giving special consideration and appreciation for the BIG changes that will accompany the Spring 2015 State Assessments, and with appreciation for how busy the final couple of months in the school year are anyway, SMCAA is moving the Spring 2015 Conference to
June 22-23 at newly remodeled Tan-Tar-A Resort.

Each day of the conference will offer Two 2-hour sessions at both the elementary level and at the secondary level for each of the core areas; with an additional session in Special Education. For BYOC users and those interested, a session will be presented that will focus on the capabilities of BYOC that many users are not utilizing and an introduction to the new BYOC+ will be unrolled. SMCAA is also appreciative that Michael Muenks, DESE - Office of Assessment and Ron Lankford, DESE - Deputy Commissioner will be sharing perspectives and information on current issues.

Science Teachers Of Missouri

Mini - Conference
July 21-22
Stephens College, Columbia Missouri

Show-Me Curriculum Administrators Association (SMCAA) and Science Teachers of Missouri (STOM) have joined together to offer Missouri elementary and secondary teachers each a day filled with enriching opportunities that support the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) position that early experiences in science help students develop problem-solving skills that empower them to participate in an increasingly scientific and technological world.

Participants will leave this conference with a plethora of useful information and resources to enhance understandings in science for their young learners and on the secondary level receive useful information and resources that can be used to challenge students to use, apply, and critically think about science concepts rather than just memorize content to score well on an assessment.
