CALGARY TELUS CONVENTION CENTRE(CTCC) and HYATT - address and driving directions

PRE-REGISTRATION WILL OPEN ON JANUARY 11, 2024 AT 8:00P.M. and CLOSE FEBRUARY 11 AT 8:00 P.M.
We have decided to start pre-registration on January 11th to make sure everyone is informed of the start time and has time to check out the sessions as the first week back to school can be quite hectic.
FOR PRE-REGISTERED SESSIONS PLEASE USE THE PRE-REGISTRATION LINK BELOW THE SESSION DESCRIPTION IN SCHED. Adding the session to your Sched schedule does not mean you are pre-registered. The number in the title shows how many will be allowed to attend the session. We do allow more names to be added, but they will be on the waiting list. This is explained on the pre-registration page.

CONVENTION AT A GLANCE LINK WILL BE AVAILABLE HERE IN MID FEBRUARY
Off-Site Addresses are included.

PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY
“On the two school days of your assigned teachers’ convention, you have a legal and professional responsibility to attend convention. If you are not able to make it safely to your assigned convention, however, your collective agreement may include impassable roads or inclement weather clauses that you can access. If your collective agreement does not include language specific to road conditions or weather, you may make use of the personal leave clauses of your agreement in most cases. Please be aware that using any of these types of leave may require you to pay substitute costs, forego a portion of your salary and benefits, or report to your school or another work location in your district. Refer to your collective agreement for more information. Should you require any additional information or if you need assistance interpreting your collective agreement, please contact Teacher Employment Services at 1-800-232-7208 or 780-447-9400.”

How to Read & Plan with the New Curriculum

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Are you searching for a way to effectively navigate the new curriculum? Led by a highly experienced teacher with a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction, this interactive session will provide practical activities to decode curriculum and tools to help align tasks with Bloom's Taxonomy. Gain valuable strategies for planning with the new curriculum, and differentiating instruction to meet the diverse needs of your students. Prepare to enhance your teaching skills as you bid farewell to confusion and embrace newfound confidence as you embark on this collaborative journey! Hot tip:  My goal is that you will walk away with an outline of lessons you can begin to teach tomorrow. I will be providing an ELA outcome from grades 4-6. If you want to work on a LO from your own grade - bring that page of the curriculum and a highlighter with you.
