I attended the 2009 NSI and had a wonderful time. The workshops, presenters, and schedule was awesome. However, I do have two suggestions for the 2010 NSI (which I plan to attend). I am my district's READ 180/Scholastic's Products Person-to-come-to and the plan is for me to help train and answer questions for other teachers in our 3-school district. Last year when I scheduled my workshop attendance, I was only able to select workshops within my listed position (READ 180 teacher). However, there were some workshops that were Leadership workshops I would have liked to sign up for in advance. Could there be a section for "undeclared" attendees that would allow myself and others in my position to sign up for the workshops we need? A list of suggested workshops would also be nice. ALSO.... One opportunity I would have liked is to be able to meet other educators who teach the same READ 180 Level (C, in my case). A few suggestions on how this could be set up... 1) have a separate workshop for this purpose and withing that, separate the Level A's, Level B's, Level C's, FLEX, etc. 2) Use the lunch and breakfast tables and time by labeling tables Level C, Level A, etc. to promote discussion, 3) After all the day's workshops, there were booths set up that attendees could chack out other Scholastic Resources. It was in the back of the ballroom. The other tables in the ballroom could be used as an opportunity for attendees to meet other educators in their Level, or state, or region, etc.
