FEATURED WORKSHOP SPEAKER Dr. Tammy Ryan, Jacksonville University Effective teachers make positive differences in children’s reading futures. To make bigger differences in children’s reading experiences teachers need a clear understanding of the reading process, how to use ongoing informal reading assessments to match instruction to strengths, interests, and needs. Earning a master’s degree in reading education will give you the edge to make stronger and more confident decisions when teaching K-12 students to read at the classroom, school, and community levels. To seek answers to those important questions, you can now learn alongside other educators who are wanting to make bigger differences in the reading experiences of all children. Jacksonville University School of Education is proud to announce the launch of a new online Master of Education in Reading Education degree program. Whether you are on the go, at home, or in the classroom, you can use various digital technologies to earn this important degree to change children’s reading outcomes. This program is designed and opened for all educators seeking to make bigger differences in the field of reading education. Additional levels of study include enrolling as a non-degree seeking student, take first five courses to qualify for the State of Florida Reading Endorsement, or take any course of interest to learn more about the reading process while earning recertification credit. Dr. Tammy Ryan is an assistant professor of reading education and teacher preparation at Jacksonville University in the School of Education. She earned a Doctorate in Reading Education from UGA, is program director of the new online M.Ed in Reading degree program, and teaches all courses leading to the State of Florida reading endorsement. She has over fifteen years of public and private school teaching experiences. Her articles appear in the Reading Teacher, Kappa Delta Pi Record, Journal of Reading Education, and she has contributed chapters in various books. Her research focuses on the use of video assessment protocols to measure reading teachers/specialists’ abilities to analyze student reading, teacher preparation, vocabulary development, and uses of digital technologies to improve teaching and learning. She presents yearly at international, national, and local conferences.

Students with intellectual disabilities are more successful when taught through visual and auditory supports. What could be more engaging than learning with an individual device that integrates sound, moving images, and minimized distractions? Using the SAMR model as a guide, we will experience learning through the power of the iPad. Lessons presented are relevant to teachers of students functioning at primary and intermediate grade-levels. Amanda Foxwell is the Technology Teacher at North Florida School of Special Education. She works with students of varying intellectual disabilities to reinforce academic skills through the use of technology. Along with creating engaging lessons for k-12 students in the computer lab, she works with classroom teachers to integrate technology into their standards-based lessons. In 2008, Amanda received her Master of Education degree from the University of Florida, specializing in Reading Instruction and Remediation. Mathematically Literate Adolescents: How to make it Happen Andrea Thoermer, Step Up for Students Dense and technical mathematical language is a big stumbling block for many students as they attempt to understand mathematical problems. Teachers, as experts of the language, can scaffold students’ understanding by including mathematical language instruction, because when students learn language, they will learn content! This is especially critical with the implementation of the new Common Core State Standards, which emphasize the importance of students becoming literate in the content areas. Come join me as we explore a variety of strategies that can be used to increase students’ knowledge and use of disciplinespecific language in mathematics! Handouts will be provided to participants. Dr. Andrea Thoermer graduated with her PhD from the University of Florida in December 2013 in Curriculum and Instruction with specializations in Reading Education and Curriculum, Teaching and Teacher Education. Prior to receiving her degree, she was a third grade teacher for seven years in St. Johns County.
