500 Years of Singing: Exploring the Lutheran and Reformed Choral Traditions - Zebulon Highben
Martin Luther and his colleagues famously created the German chorales and established a prominent place for vernacular hymns in their worship orders of 1523 and 1526. But Luther also loved choral singing, and a robust repertoire of choral music developed contemporaneously with the chorales. The Reformed tradition is known for its treasury of metrical psalmody, which also gave rise to a rich legacy of choral works. But what exactly are these choral traditions? What are their musical, textual, and liturgical parameters? How did they influence each other? Using repertoire from the new Augsburg Chorale Book and its sister volumes, this session will answer these questions and highlight the various streams of Lutheran and Reformed choral music, from the sixteenth century to the present day.
Priceless Treasures: Hymns and Songs in Parish Life - Wayne Wold
In addition to presenting ideas about using hymns creatively in worship, Wold will discuss other areas of parish life—rehearsals, meetings, education, fellowship and outreach events, publications and public relations, and more—where hymns and hymn-singing can be enriching and meaningful tools for spiritual formation, community-building, and memory-making.
Hymn Festival: Seasons of the Son

The City Ruck Tour 2018 (CRT18) is a series of 60 friendly Ruck Marches hosted by Operation Enduring Warrior (OEW) and led by select volunteers from OEW’s Masked Athlete Team and OEW’s Community Ambassador population. The purpose is to perform outdoor fitness in a group setting, while learning more about OEW’s mission, which is to Honor, Empower, and Motivate our nation’s wounded military veterans.
On average the distance will be 12 miles, and will vary from city to city, based on the assigned Ruck Leader’s plan. The pace will be moderate (approx. 18-20 minutes per mile), and the group will move together as one team. Short breaks will occur as needed. The amount of weight you carry in your rucksack is up to you. However, you are required to have two (2) quarts of water, a reflective band or belt on the outside of your ruck, and a headlamp or flashlight. Kid friendly. Dog friendly.
There will be a Rally Point (RP) 3-4 miles from the End-Point, for any late comers to join in for the final miles. Upon conclusion of the ruck march, there will be a “Circle of Trust” closing ceremony where you will hear a testimony directly from one of our Adaptive Athlete honorees, or participating military veteran. Prepare to be inspired. Everyone in the circle will receive a CRT patch, and probably a hug!
This year’s Tour is adopting a special theme…Veterans reaching out to Policemen! OEW will lead the nationwide effort in providing much needed relief to our hurting Law Enforcement Officer community. OEW challenges you to embrace this initiative. Every CRT city will have policemen rucking with us. We will hear their stories. We will demonstrate our support. We will show our respect. We will express our gratitude for the thankless and dangerous job they perform. OEW is helping launch a “Task Force Blue” (name pending approval) police services organization that will do for our injured cops what OEW does for our wounded vets, ultimately saving lives by preventing suicide.
All CRT tour stops are FREE to cops (active and retired). Everyone else pays $25. Your registration fee goes directly to OEW’s treasury to fund OEW programs in addition to covering the cost of patches and volunteer Ruck Leader travel cost.
Please spread the word, bring some friends! See you there!

Low-cost or no-cost solutions to code with grades 3 -12 students in various learning environments
Real-world coding applications that will not only engage students but also helps educators to focus on inspiring students to be builders – not just consumers - of technology through coding activities and challenges. It’s all about using technology and changing the world through teamwork, creativity, and, of course, code.
Practical, innovative ways to involve students in coding activities that incorporate problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and much, much more!
Receive an extensive coding resource handbook packed full of timesaving ideas, tools, tips, and proven strategies all designed to help students to not only develop problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, collaboration skills but also important coding skills.
No prior training is needed for you to be a facilitator of coding. Whether you are tech timid or tech savvy, you will find an abundance of resources. I will help you sort through the wealth of resources and highlight for you the best and most effective ones to be a facilitator of coding to students.
Key Benefits of Attending
Articulate why Coding is the “New Literacy”
How the implementation of coding not only promotes critical thinking, creativity, problem solving but also communication and collaboration.
Stimulates learners to become self directed.
Increases math concepts such as reasoning, spatial awareness and sequencing.
Explore how coding develops the students self-confidence.
Become familiar with the availability of no cost to low cost online and offline resources to facilitate coding.
Digital communication to will be demonstrated to enhance instruction ie. Google Classroom, Schoology, Plickers, Doc Hub, Symbaloo, Google Doc. Post It Plus and more.
Technology is everywhere and it’s not going anywhere. Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), especially when integrated with other disciplines, are the skills of the future. We need to equip students with the critical skills they need to navigate the world we live in today and thrive in the future.
It’s important for youth to learn to code for a few reasons:
• Coding is a superpower. Learning to code let’s students build – not just consume the technology around them like video games, websites, robots and more.
• Coding helps students develop new ways of thinking. Learning to code helps students develop other crucial and transferable skills – like computational thinking – allowing them to tackle problems, outside the realm of coding, in new and innovative ways.
• Coding helps students understand the world around them better. If we teach biology and mathematics in order to understand the world around them, then knowing the basics of how computers communicate and how to engage with them should be a given.
• Coding can help change the world. Empower students to use technology as a creative tool to build solutions for problems or everyday challenges people face.
• Coding is fun! Students experience the satisfaction and thrill of building something.
The introduction and teaching of coding has been gaining interest and generating buzz the last two years. This seminar is designed to put you in the coding seat and work the projects that you can implement the very next day. As a classroom instructor, myself, it is always my aim to support my colleagues. Practical strategies for Computer Science teachers and tech specialists in these roles classroom facilitators will be infused to assist, even the novice, attempt coding for the first time.
I have designed this seminar specifically to offer resources for the Classroom Instructor, Computer Science Instructors and Technology Integration Specialists on how to facilitate coding in grades 3 -12. Whether you are tech timid or tech savvy, you will find an abundance of resources. I will help you sort through the wealth of resources and highlight for you the best and most effective ones to facilitate coding to students in grades 3 -12. We will look at ways to design lessons and projects to teach and infuse coding into everyday curricula.
Bring your devices! We will be working through many of the projects and you will leave with not only the inspiration, but also complete projects and lessons that you can use with students immediately. There is not just one way to teach coding. I will help you get started and give you the tools and resources you need to move your students onward.
I look forward to meeting you at the seminar. The day promises to be a day filled with practical activities, ideas, tips and resources that will empower you to infuse coding and other apps for your classroom! Bring your laptop or device…we are going to learn the experience the power and joy of coding.
P.S. I know how valuable your teaching time is to you, so I have planned an active day, packed with lessons, and resources that if you choose, can be immediately implemented with your own grade 3-12 students.
