    Audience: K-12 general education and special education teachers Deans School counselors Paraprofessionals Assistant Principals Behavior Specialists

    Dates: 4/2/2020 to 4/9/2020

    Starting Soon
    We often don't know what to do with students who exhibit challenging behavior. Behavior modification systems assume that the student requires motivation in order to change his/her behavior. That they can change their behavior if they only wanted to. However, 50 years of neuro-scientific research suggests that these challenging behaviors are actually due to specific neuro-cognitive skill deficits which can be taught.

    Spend the day learning and practicing an evidence-based method effective in changing challenging behavior and actually rewiring the brain to build the missing cognitive skills causing the behavior. You will learn how to assess for the missing skills and how to collaborate with the student in order to solve the problem behavior. This strategy has been successful with Elementary, Middle and High School Students.

    This program may be used to meet 5.5 hours toward CTLE requirements. Check with your district for eligibility.

In this workshop, participants will learn several interactive strategies for activating and building upon the background knowledge that students need to access literacy, content lesson topics and themes across grade levels. Participants will then choose a newly learned strategy and brainstorm how they might include it in future lessons and units.

    TO REGISTER FOR THIS WORKSHOP, PLEASE USE THE FOLLOWING LINK TO ENROLL AT ORANGE-ULSTER BOCES' SITE: CLICK HERE TO ENROLL

    Educators face a unique challenge when students are culturally, linguistically and academically diverse and yet, they are expected to meet common standards. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a scientifically valid framework based on cognitive neuroscience that suggests variability within the learner is predictable and can be systematically addressed. UDL provides us with the guidelines to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all by planning instruction from the beginning that is culturally responsive and linguistically appropriate by being flexible, engaging, validating, strategic and motivating. When applied to English language learners, we can predict and create the access points students will need to succeed with a "one size fits all" curriculum and standards.

    In this workshop, participants will be able to:
    - Examine the Universal Design for Learning framework to see how it applies to teaching culturally and linguistically diverse learners.
    - Identify the potential barriers, preferences and supports for multi-lingual learners within the content areas.
    - Design instruction that takes into consideration learner variability and anticipate student needs.
    - Utilize the principles of UDL to develop students that are purposeful and motivated, resourceful and knowledgeable, strategic and goal oriented learners.
    - Analyze illustrations (case studies, lesson plans and classroom examples) of UDL in action for language learners and all students.

    Audience: K-12 general education and special education teachers Deans School counselors Paraprofessionals Assistant Principals Behavior Specialists

    Dates: 5/29/2020

    We often don't know what to do with students who exhibit challenging behavior. Behavior modification systems assume that the student requires motivation in order to change his/her behavior. That they can change their behavior if they only wanted to. However, 50 years of neuro-scientific research suggests that these challenging behaviors are actually due to specific neuro-cognitive skill deficits which can be taught.

    Spend the day learning and practicing an evidence-based method effective in changing challenging behavior and actually rewiring the brain to build the missing cognitive skills causing the behavior. You will learn how to assess for the missing skills and how to collaborate with the student in order to solve the problem behavior. This strategy has been successful with Elementary, Middle and High School Students.

    This program may be used to meet 5.5 hours toward CTLE requirements. Check with your district for eligibility.

    Fee:
    $190 per participant for CoSer 555 members

    This hands-on workshop will present frameworks and instructional strategies for literacy engagement for all students, especially ELLs. Research on exemplary literacy practices in the Hudson Valley demonstrates that students benefit from opportunities to use language critically, in multiple contexts, in different modalities (reading, writing, listening and speaking), and through the lenses of their culture and identity. Therefore, this hands-on workshop will 1) explore critical and culturally responsive literacy frameworks, and 2) examine instructional practices such as before, during and after reading strategies that promote critical discussions among students.
