"When people reflect on what it takes to be mentally fit, the first idea that comes to mind is usually intelligence. The smarter you are, the more complex the problems you can solve-and the faster you can solve them. Intelligence is traditionally viewed as the ability to think and learn. Yet in a turbulent world, there's another set of cognitive skills that might matter more: the ability to rethink and unlearn.”

Let's take our experiences, specifically during this time of turbulence, and transform our thinking and teaching through the study of excerpts from the fascinating book, Think Again, by Adam Grant. Adam Grant is an Organizational Psychologist whose expertise is on opening our own minds, in order for us to open the minds of others by embracing the joy of being wrong, dealing with charged conversations, and building schools and workplaces of lifelong learners.

Participants will be involved in activities and discussions that will develop and teach mental flexibility which will translate to how you model and teach students to be reflective, lovers of learning.

This workshop is appropriate for all staff members - new, veteran, classroom and all special areas throughout the district. Two meetings will take place @ 1.5 hours each. The 3 additional hours will be accumulated via asynchronous activities.

Please note: A personal Google account is required to access the workshop materials.

41. LINC-Theodore Roosevelt and Sagamore Hill

Program: Long Island Network of Teacher Centers

Audience: Educators

Dates: 5/4/2022 to 5/14/2022

Historians and writers consistently rank Theodore Roosevelt as one of our country's top presidents. One hundred years after his death in 1919, he is still studied by students, teachers, and scholars alike. New films (including a major motion film starring Leonardo DiCaprio as TR), books, TV shows are still being created about his life and achievements. Chief among these are his efforts to protect consumers with pure food and drug laws, defend workers' rights, welcome immigrants into American society and most importantly conserve and preserve our natural resources and the environment.

Our goal is to examine TR as not only a national leader who fought for justice but also look at him as a cultural phenomenon and iconic figure. To understand how the only president born in New York City and lived on Long Island is also familiar to Americans as a cowboy, Rough Rider and intellectual who wrote over 35 books on history, natural science and literature.

Additionally, we will spend time tracing his footsteps at one of our region's greatest national historic sites-Sagamore Hill where he hiked in the woods and on the beach with his six children, (four of who became heroes in WWI and WWII) and visit his graveside in Oyster Bay.

In this course, participants will explore the murkier side of America's struggle for independence, which involved many different individuals and groups of people in a very complex, brutal, and agonizing experience.

To understand the complexities of the Revolution, students will learn about those who were critical to its success but are rarely discussed - the ordinary shopkeepers, mechanics, servants, and sailors who took the law into their own hands and spilled into the streets; the mostly underprivileged soldiers, black, white and native, who fought on both sides; and the women camp followers who accompanied the armies through agonizing campaigns.

This course will be delivered as a hybrid:
