Do One Thing: The Summer DOT Conference

We are excited to invite you to participate in Elkhart’s first Summer DOT Conference taking place on June 1 & 2, 2022. With a focus on Tier 1 Instruction, the Summer DOT Conference will feature Elkhart’s best resource, our own teachers, teaching other teachers. We believe you are the heart and soul of our district, and have amazing ideas and strategies to share. Our hope is that every teacher walks away with one thing they plan to take with them into the 2022-2023 school year. 

Interested in sharing your best one thing you do with students to make sure they’re engaged and supported? Submit a proposal for a one hour session on a Tier 1 strategy. Consider topics on accessibility, SIOP, Trauma Informed Care, the PLC Process; the options are endless.  After you submit, your proposal will be reviewed by the Instructional Leadership team and you will receive a follow up with instructions on how to proceed.

The PD website has a new page with more information on the event, including keynote speakers and a link to the proposal form. Accepted presenters will receive a $50 honorarium for your time preparing for and sharing during the event.

Need some ideas to get you thinking?

  • How do you use Seesaw and Canvas to connect with students and families?
  • What is something you’ve done to integrate SIOP principles in your day to day instruction?
  • How have you used your Trauma Informed Care training to form positive relationships with students?
  • What accommodations do you make on a regular basis to make instruction more inclusive?

Proposals are due by Monday, April 11, 2022 Questions? Reach out to pd@elkhart.k12.in.us
