About the Workshop Series:

During the month of March, we honor National Women's History month as we celebrate brave, strong, determined, intelligent, and creative women who have contributed to and have spear-headed amazing accomplishments in their lifetimes. Join Naomi Louise for a series of six collaborative, hands-on workshops where you will have the opportunity to make-and-take a variety of differentiated STEM activities that will empower you to share how women have played an important leadership role in the world of STEM, from past experiences to current inventions and innovative discoveries. Participants will also walk away with ten enrichment activities and twenty-five choice activities that Naomi designed exclusively for this series and can immediately be implemented in the classroom. 

By the end of this workshop series, you will be able to: 

  • Explore books that highlight innovative women throughout history that can be utilized for oral read aloud activities in the classroom. 

  • Discover how active, collaborative conversations allow students to understand the accomplishments of women leaders, including their notable character traits and the challenges they faced. 

  • Discover strategies to help students discover and honor women leaders throughout history, within our local communities, and in our families who are role models to our future generations. 

  • Explain how students can use audio, video, and photos to create a multimedia or video documentary presentation that can be published to the “Her-Story Global Collaboration Project” website.  

  • Improve educator questioning techniques to engage more students in meaningful and collaborative conversations to assess depth of knowledge and understanding. 

  • Discover creative ways to meet the needs of diverse learners through assessment choice so students can represent their best selves and highlight their learning. 

  • Explore a wealth of innovative resources that focus on women in STEM leadership that will enrich the learning experience and provide opportunities for future coursework.

Live workshops are 60-minutes in duration. Attendees will have access to the ‘workroom' following the workshop so they can continue collaborating with peers. Additionally, the trainer is available for 24 hours following the workshop to help coach.

While it's recommended you attend every workshop of a series to make sure you are achieving all learning outcomes, each workshop can be viewed as a stand-alone.

  • Workshops will be available on-demand in the Teacher Learning Community for UpTeach members, typically within 3-5 days after the workshop has ended. NOTE: Non-members will need to pay to access the on-demand workshop.
  • UpTeach members will also have access to the associated classroom to view the participant discussion stream and access any resources supplied. NOTE: Access to the trainer is only available during the actual workshop.

We host at least one virtual workshop per week throughout the year, with the exception of holiday weeks. Times for workshops vary due to many of our trainers being educators and school consultants themselves. This means that typically workshops are held after school hours ET.

We are excited to say that workshops are now included with Premium member subscriptions and district memberships.

  1. Internet access.
  2. Access to GoToWebinar. Whether you use the download app or an internet browser, trainers present direct instruction and communicate throughout the training via GoToWebinar.
  3. Access to Google Classrooms. Please make sure you are in a setting where you will have access to Google Classrooms. NOTE: Some school firewalls will not allow you to access Google Classrooms from your classroom. In these cases, you may need to be in your home to participate. Additionally, if your school email address is already associated with Google Classrooms, you will need to use a different personal email address to join so that you are not locked out of the training. Again, due to school privacy restrictions on some school email addresses.

Yes! If you have access to dual monitors, this is ideal. With this type of setup, you will be able to keep GoToWebinar open on one screen, and Google Classrooms open on another.

If you do not have access to a dual monitor setup, no worries! You will just need to make sure you can ‘toggle/switch' between the two.
