HOST SCHOOLS
Through the vision of the College of Education, the laboratory schools at the
University of Puerto Rico provide innovative education experiences while
supporting future educators. They are centers for creativity, research and
development of new educational practices. The main objective of the laboratory
schools is to improve and transform teaching and learning practices. The success of
the University of Puerto Rico Laboratory Schools is based on the teachers‟ team
work and the cooperation and integration of all students. The College of Education
prides itself in supporting and promoting such a wonderful learning community.
The Secondary School just turned 100 years old. It was the first public school in
Puerto Rico‟s metropolitan area. Thousands of teachers, counselors, administrators,
social workers, and other professionals have used the Secondary School as a pathway
to an exciting and fruitful career in the field of education. The use
of manipulatives as a way for students to learn mathematical concepts was first
researched at the Secondary School along with other cutting-edge teaching practices.

IN SEARCH OF A NEW PARADIGM FOR TEACHING AND
LEARNING: THE ROLE OF THE LABORATORY SCHOOLS
DR. ANA HELVIA QUINTERO
The documents that describe the mission and philosophy of our school system
correspond to what we know about the learning process. Yet few classrooms
follow in practice those principles. This indeed is not particular of Puerto Rico. It
happens in many countries. The talk will analyze the reason for this discrepancy
between theory and practice, and how laboratories schools can contribute to implement in practice the principles about teaching and
learning.

MASTER CLASSES (3:00 – 4:00 pm)
EARLY BILINGUAL LITERACY DEVELOPMENT: CHALLENGES
AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR TEACHING
DR. ÁNGELES MOLINA ITURRONDO
This master class aims at reviewing neurological and sociocultural dimensions of
simultaneous first and second language learning in young children. Research
literature will be discussed in order to identify the main develop-mental benchmarks and characteristics of bilingual development and early biliteracy learning.
Implications, challenges and opportunities for bilingual teaching and learning will
be addressed.

ACTION RESEARCH: A WINDOW TO UNDERSTAND THE ACT
OF TEACHING
DR. ANNETTE LÓPEZ DE MÉNDEZ
Teaching is a complex act, making it an exciting phenomenon to study.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the benefits and the process
of doing action research in the classroom, through the experience and work of a
group of teachers as researchers from the UPR-RP Laboratory School. The
workshop sees action research conducted in the classroom not only as a
professional development activity, but as a window to understand the complexity
of the act of teaching and learning

CHALLENGES FOR CZECH EDUCATION IN THE 21ST CENTURY
Bretislav Svozil - Open School Space, Masaryk University, Czech Republic
Czech educational system faces many challenges at the moment. Many changes have happened
during the last twenty years, some of them successful some of them less successful. We need to
focus more on future and the rapid development of the society and reflect it in our education.
There are some initiatives that realize this, however we still need to be focused more on
systematical solutions, holistic approach and work on synergies that can work for the improvement
of Czech educational system. One of the examples of synergies can be the Open School Space
project situated to Brno, Czech Republic.

CAN YOU REALLY TEST A STANDARD?
Wade Smith - Louisiana State University Laboratory School, Louisiana State University
It is now common practice for schools to be required to administer standards-based exams. In
many cases their results are used as a part of the school's accountability performance score. This
presentation examines the assumptions behind standards-based assessments, identifies the issues
created for schools by these assumptions, and offers recommendations based off of these issues.

Yomarie Rivera & Karen M. Holguín, UPR Elementary Lab School
Proponemos presentar dos investigaciones realizadas en Guatemala, que fueron elaboradas como
parte de una investigación sombrilla dirigida por la Dra. Ruth Sáez Vega, el Proyecto Alianzas de
Lectura (P.A.L), iniciativa pedagógica e investigativa del Centro para el Estudio de la Lectura, la
Escritura y la Literatura Infantil (C.E.L.E.L.I.) de la Universidad de Puerto Rico. Una de las
investigaciones estaba dirigida al establecimiento de un programa de promoción lectora; y la otra, a
la creación e implementación de unidades temáticas. Nuestro objetivo era establecer una biblioteca
de aula en cada uno de los salones de la escuela. Asimismo, teníamos como objetivo acompañar a
las maestras en torno a la promoción lectora y a la integración de la lectura a los contenidos
curriculares y documentar el proceso y las vivencias de los estudiantes y las maestras al participar
del proyecto.

WE ALL NEED A COACH! HOW REAL FEEDBACK CAN IMPROVE YOUR
TEACHING
Kim McKnight, Graduate student at Virginia Commonwealth University
This session presents an approach for teachers to increase high-quality learning environments for
their students – using video cameras on your phone and a coaching model to deliver empirically
supported teaching strategies. This professional development model called practice-based coaching
is used in BEST in CLASS, a Tier-2 classroom-based intervention designed to prevent and
ameliorate the chronic problem behaviors of young children at risk for the development of
emotional/behavioral disorders. Instead of the traditional professional development model where
teachers learn general skills in a 1-day training and return to their classroom with a binder of new
material that will often never be opened again, practice-based coaching allows for more intensive
and focused instruction. Originally designed by Snyder (2007), practice-based coaching is a
collaborative professional development model in which a teacher and a coach work together to
assess the students‟ needs and evaluate the instructional practices for desired teacher and child
outcomes.

BRINGING RACE INTO EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATORS' REFLECTIVE
PRACTICE
Jenine Schmidt, Mills College Children's School, Mills College, Oakland, CA
Jenine Schmidt identifies as a White early childhood educator. She works at the Mills College
Children‟s School [MCCS] lab preschool. Knowing that there is a racial “mismatch” between
predominantly White educators and student populations whose races are diverse, Jenine has been
on a journey to learn more about what it means to be White, and how to recognize and challenge
stereotypes and racism in education. As a mentor to future educators, Jenine also wanted to bring
a critical race mindset to pre-service teachers. This led to a participatory action research project
involving Jenine and eight other teachers in at MCCS. These teachers used reflective processes to
critically explore their racial and cultural identities in the interest of creating more equitable
education environments. Jenine will discuss the benefits and challenges of the group reflective
process and the key finding.

HOMOPARENTAL FAMILIES IN PUERTO RICAN EDUCATIONAL
SETTINGS
Yolanda Santini, UPR Elementary Lab School
This presentation emerges from a multiple-case study about homoparental families which was
conducted in Puerto Rico. It focuses on the experiences that the participating families have had in
the school context.
Generally, educational settings are not prepared neither have established policies to work with the
homoparental family type. The integration of family diversity, including the homoparental family
type, to the curriculums and educational duties of Puerto Rican educational settings, is imperative.

21st Century Skills: Integrating “The Four C’s” in Lab School
Learning
Steve Smith, Grace B. Luhrs University Elementary School, Shippensburg University of PA
Many high schools are working to ensure that their graduates are prepared for the 21st Century
workplace and postsecondary education. Through new courses, curriculum adjustments and a
heightened focus on active learning instructional strategies, high school students are increasingly
experiencing the skills deemed most critical in becoming a contributing, self-sufficient citizen:
Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration and Creativity.
The presenter, a high school principal most of his career, recognizes that secondary students
experiencing “The Four C‟s” is not necessarily normative. Because much of high school
instruction can be teacher-centered, students often experience the Four C‟s in pockets, and in
some disciplines more than others. New this school year as an elementary laboratory school
director, the presenter now observes children routinely communicating, collaborating with one
another, creatively engaged and thinking critically. Not surprisingly, lab school curriculum and
instructional approaches are tremendously conducive for students to consistently experience the
Four C‟s.

A group of veteran teachers will share their approaches to this complex educational strategy, and
why they do things the way they do. Rather than identifying "best practices" (though it is possible
some may emerge), this roundtable will examine the messy nuts and bolts of getting kids to learn
by working together, mostly out of teachers' sight and earshot.
