    If you are a math, history, science, or art teacher, where does literacy fit into your instruction? In order to succeed, students must develop literacy skills in order to access, learn, and comprehend. Adolescent literacy is critical to the classroom success of middle- and high-school students. Reading in the content areas (e.g., social studies, science) is different from reading for enjoyment. As Richard Vaca, author of Content Area Reading: Literacy and Learning Across the Curriculum, says, "Adolescents entering the adult world in the 21st century will read and write more than at any other time in human history. They will need advanced levels of literacy to perform their jobs, run their households, act as citizens, and conduct their personal lives.” What you will learn


    • Discover how to integrate literacy development with the content area knowledge you teach


    • Learn to utilize new ideas while enhancing the skills and lesson plans you have already developed


    • Discover literacy development strategies that make content come alive for each and every student


    • Learn how literacy is connected to adolescent development, and discover how to accommodate a diverse group of learners in a classroom How you will benefit


    • Learn to utilize new ideas while augmenting the skills and lesson plans you have already developed


    • Gain confidence in your ability to adapt to the MLS and be a successful 21st century teacher

    Audience: K-12 educators, instructional coaches and administrators

    Dates: 6/29/2022

    Closed
    Much of how classrooms look and much of what happens in them today is guided by institutional norms laid down at the inception of an industrial-age model of public education. These norms have enabled a culture of teaching and learning that is often devoid of student thinking. In this session, I will present some of the results of over 15 years of research into how teachers can transform their classrooms from a space where students mimic to where students think. The practices discussed will intertwine with, and make extensive references to, the recently published book, Building Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics (Grades K-12): 14 Teaching Practices for Enhancing Learning.

    Dr. Peter Liljedahl is a Professor of Mathematics Education in the Faculty of Education at Simon Fraser University and the author of the recently published book, Building Thinking Classrooms in Mathematics (Grades K-12): 14 Teaching Practices for Enhancing Learning. He is the former president of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education (PME) and the current president of the Canadian Mathematics Education Study Group (CMESG).

    Peter is a former high school mathematics teacher and has kept his research interest and activities close to the classroom. He consults regularly with teachers, schools, school districts, and ministries of education on issues of teaching and learning problem solving, assessment, and numeracy.

    Audience: Building administrator & at least 2 additional staff members w/expertise and/or interest in specialized behavior support

    Dates: 6/29/2022 to 2/23/2023

    Missouri SW-PBS will host a series of 6 sessions for schools that have completed Tier 1 training and are ready to transition to developing Tier 1 interventions for SW-PBS framework. During these sessions, teams receive an overview of Tier 2 purposes, research, and intervention examples. They assess fidelity of Tier 1 implementation and determine their school's readiness for developing a Tier 2 system. As an initial outcome, the Tier 2 team develops a systematic process for identifying students at-risk of developing problem behaviors, which includes use of data decision rules and a teacher nomination process. Teams establish procedures to determine the function of behavior in order to match student difficulties with appropriate interventions. The use of universal screening instruments is considered.

    To learn the Tier 2 process, teams work toward implementation of Check-In, Check-Out (CICO), and Social Skills Intervention Groups (SSIG) both of which are research-based interventions. Clear entry and exit criteria are established for the two interventions, and data to be collected for progress monitoring is identified. Teams provide professional development to ensure all school staff understand the interventions and their role in implementing the interventions including promoting generalization of skills across multiple settings. Families receive information about the purpose of the intervention and their role in supporting their child's participation. By the end of Tier 2 training, teams create data rules for making decisions about individual student progress monitoring data and develop plans to fully implement the intervention the following year.

    *Participants should bring a device capable of accessing digital documents via the internet (Chromebooks have difficulty accessing UCM Guest Wifi). Access to the internet will be provided via UCM Guest Wifi access.
