APD is a disorder affecting a person's ability to understand speech and process auditory information. The impact that this disorder can have on a student is profound. How often do you have a student ask you to repeat something or have a delay in answering your questions? APD can have an impact on their classwork, homework, test scores, comprehension and retention. A student who has trouble processing incoming information or directions will give answers unrelated to the questions. In this online course, we will focus on what APD is, diagnosing APD, distinguishing differences between APD and other disorders, and treatment for APD. At the course conclusion, you will have strategies to modify your classroom teaching and compensatory strategies to allow students to become more successful in the classroom. This class is appropriate for all K-12 teachers.
This discounted online course is open to all. However, priority registration will be given to EWTC consortium members. Many educators use the terms culturally responsive teaching, multicultural education and social justice education interchangeably, which keeps educators from effectively implementing culturally responsive teaching. While they do overlap, they have very different purposes. Culturally responsive teaching is focused not on celebrating diversity but on using culture as a cognitive scaffold for processing new content during learning. It focuses on cognitive development and increasing brain power for culturally and linguistically diverse students. We will read and discuss, "Culturally Responsive Teaching & the Brain: Promoting Authentic Engagement and Rigor Among Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students” by Zaretta Hammond, and share, discuss, and problem solve how to close the achievement gap by looking at culturally responsive pedagogy.

A teacher's use of formative assessment techniques is essential in ensuring he or she is meeting the learning targets for a unit. Teachers need to know "who knows what” before moving on. Formative assessment is nothing new - our teachers were administering formative assessments to us when we were in school many years ago. In today's digital world, we are lucky to have so many more tools to assist us in our formative assessments. Teachers in the class will review the research on formative assessment as well as explore dozens of instructional tools that can be used for formative assessments. Teachers will leave this course with concrete and easy to use examples for embedding more formative assessments into their lessons .

Fostering deeper thinking and greater understanding promotes increased engagement in the classroom. In this online course, we will examine question formulation and exploration as key parts of the problem solving process. In the real world, students will not have access to all the information they need to solve problems - they will be required to sort, decipher and gather it themselves. As class participants, you will focus on all curriculum areas and explore the best problem solving practices in math. Authentic challenges will be introduced as we look at problem solving in action and how your students can think and problem solve outside of the textbooks. With the tools you provide them, students will be able to work out solutions to complex problems that will lead to enhanced student learning and increased student engagement.

This Inservice course may also be taken for graduate credit. Since the two options are listed separately, please be sure to register accordingly. In this online course, participants will explore how to facilitate classroom discussions through engaging conversations, the role of teachers as coaches during this process and how best to provide a supportive classroom environment when integrating higher order questioning techniques. When we closely examine the value of student participation in small group discussions, we find that students are able to connect with each other's thoughts and opinions and are able to engage in higher level critical thinking. Critical thinking involves logical thinking and reasoning including the following skills: comparison, classification, sequencing, cause/effect, patterning, webbing, analogies, deductive and inductive reasoning, forecasting, planning, hypothesizing, and critiquing. We will examine the link between critical thinking skills and questioning techniques by taking an in depth look at Bloom's Taxonomy and the quote, "Maslow before Bloom.” At the end of the course, you will have the tools needed to transfer responsibility from yourself to your students to speak purposefully, think outside of the box and lead an effective and engaging classroom discussion.

This online course is discounted for our EWTC consortium members but is open to all. Priority registration will be given to our consortium members. In this course, participants will examine what exactly is "executive functioning,” how it manifests itself in student behaviors and what teaching strategies can be used to accommodate students who struggle with these skills. Executive function affects a child's ability to understand speech and process auditory information. The impact that this can have on a student is profound. How often do you have a student ask you to repeat something or have a delay in answering your questions? Their classwork, homework, test grades, comprehension, and retention all suffer when they struggle with executive functioning. A student who has trouble processing incoming information or directions will give answers that seem odd or not even related at all. Teachers in this course will dive deep into specific, immediate actions they can take to enhance their students' functioning on academic and non-academic tasks.

This discounted online course is open to all. However, priority registration will be given to EWTC consortium members. It is designed for teachers in every setting from Grades K-12. Look Who's Talking is an introduction to Accountable Talk. Accountable Talk refers to the ways that teachers skillfully encourage their students to think deeply, articulate their reasoning, and listen with purpose. Talking with others about ideas and work is fundamental to learning and is an essential skill in the Common Core Learning Standards for every grade. But not all talk sustains learning. For classroom talk to promote learning it must be accountable--to the learning community, to accurate and appropriate knowledge, and to rigorous thinking. Accountable talk uses evidence appropriate to the discipline (e.g., proofs in mathematics, data from investigations in science, textual details in literature, documentary sources in history) and follows established norms of good reasoning. At the end of this course, teachers will be able to effectively incorporate Accountable Talk strategies into the classroom.

As students return to the classroom, we, as teachers, need to be prepared for the transition that comes with it. Some of the younger students may be coming into the classroom for the first time and others reentering in over two years. They will now have to adjust to the classroom structure and, with it, teacher and school expectations as well as safety and health protocols. In addition, many students, during distance learning, have been doing schoolwork from the comfort of their bed (some without any adult supervision) so this transition back into the classroom may be a difficult one. There will also be mental health challenges as young children struggle with separation anxiety, fear of getting sick, the death of a family member or they might be feeling the effects of a parent's job loss. In this online course, we will discuss how to balance instruction since we will have students coming back at varying academic levels and what strategies we can use to support these learners. We will also examine what social emotional tools and mental health resources we can put in place to help our students make a smooth transition back into the classroom. At the conclusion of the class, you will have the tools needed to set a positive tone in the classroom and to reengage students in a safe space.

We have all been there - we've prepared a great lesson, developed a "hook” to keep students engaged and ready to learn, only to see student interest fizzle out as the lesson progresses. Keeping students actively engaged in the learning process is a critical component of lesson planning. Throughout this course, we will explore strategies for "hooking” students and keeping them engaged in the learning process that can immediately be incorporated into your lesson plans. PLEASE NOTE: THE INSTITUTE CANNOT REFUND A PARTICIPANT ONCE THE CLASS HAS COMMENCED.
