Numerous studies indicate that Black & Latinx students demonstrate lower scores on standardized tests, more absences, more disciplinary action, and less motivation to learn. This phenomenon, commonly referred to as the "achievement gap" incorrectly positions students of color as deficit learners, when in fact, the deficit lies in our education system that routinely fails to adequately address the needs of diverse student populations. This workshop guides educators in shifting their pedagogical styles in order to critically reframe the ways we teach in order to help students develop empathy, unlearn white supremacist notions, heighten critical thinking skills and grow to become compassionate leaders dedicated to racial justice.

The workshop will be presented by Dr. Christina Harris. Dr. Harris is a professor of Africana studies at Stockton University where she teaches classes focused on historical and contemporary issues faced by the diasporic Black community. Her research focuses on culturally competent pedagogy, digital pan-Africanism in the Black travel movement, and the Black LGBTQ experience. Dr. Harris offers implicit bias training and DEI consultation to corporate, educational, and healthcare organizations.

This online workshop is intended to provide an overview of Dyslexia.

Dyslexia, the most recognized of reading problems, is a neurological disorder that is often characterized by difficulties in recognizing and decoding words, leading to lower comprehension and fluency. Although there is no exact count, it is estimated that one in ten people may be afflicted with some form of dyslexia.

Governor Christie signed legislation that prominently recognizes dyslexia in state statute and regulation, making it a requirement for districts to deal with this disability. A definition of dyslexia must now be specifically written into special education code and a yearly 2-hour professional development requirement for dyslexia is now mandated for all teachers in grades pre-K through grade 3, special education, reading and ESL teachers, reading specialists, learning disabilities teacher consultants, and speech-language specialists.

This two-hour webinar will provide participating administrators, pre-K to 3 educators, Special Education supervisors, and Child Study Team members with detailed information about this legislation, citing the specificity and requisites that impact the governance and operation of all school districts in New Jersey. The impact that the law will have on special education programs, as well as the specific components that must be included in the required training, will be reviewed during the online course.

Online workshop access will be granted after ETTC Hours approval or payment is received. Please contact the SRI&ETTC at 609-626-3850 regarding this matter.

Dyslexia, the most recognized of reading problems, is a neurological disorder that is often characterized by difficulties in recognizing and decoding words, leading to lower comprehension and fluency. Although there is no exact count, it is estimated that one in ten people may be afflicted with some form of Dyslexia.

Legislation on Dyslexia signed in August 2014 prominently recognized Dyslexia in state statute and regulation, mandating a requirement for districts to pro-actively deal with this disability. A definition of Dyslexia is now written into Special Education code and a yearly 2-hour professional development requirement for Dyslexia is now mandated for all teachers in grades pre-K through grade 3, special education, reading and ESL teachers, reading specialists, learning disabilities teacher consultants, and speech-language specialists.

Participants should already have had a preliminary workshop on Dyslexia such that they have a general knowledge about the legislation, definition, warning signs, and characteristics of Dyslexia. This two-hour training will provide participants with information about specific teaching strategies and techniques used to work with students with Dyslexia, as well as additional information about its characteristics, use of technology, and screening.
