Overview:

Why do some students persist in their struggle to learn to read, in spite of continued intervention? This is a pervasive question we face in schools today.

Our dialogue will consider what research tells us about the role these two skills play in how the brain learns to read and will examine the differences in how proficient readers read vs those who struggle. We will discuss instructional implications "the code" of English has on the overall approach to English Language Arts in the elementary grades. Additionally, we will discuss planning and implementation considerations of particular concern to administrators in thinking about the 2017-2018 school year. Future planned supports will be addressed.

Outcomes:

Overview:

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) that supports all students in the social and behavioral domains. Due to the various and challenging needs of today's student population, schools have begun to focus on how trauma impacts student functioning and how important social emotional learning (SEL) is to assisting students with being successful. In this session, participants will learn how trauma affects an individual and strategies that can be incorporated into a PBIS/MTSS framework to increase sensitivity to these needs. In addition, the session will provide an overview of SEL and an instructional framework that schools can utilize to address student's emotional learning needs. Using student vignettes that are specific to the grade level they are currently working with (i.e., preschool, elementary, secondary); participants will have the opportunity to apply the principles of trauma sensitivity and social emotional learning, utilizing a PBIS/MTSS framework to provide efficient and effective supports.

Outcomes: - Establishing a trauma sensitive lens to shift perspectives on students with challenging behavior and develop need based interventions

- Developing a context for the implementation of SEL to assist students with learning skills in all five social domains

- Making connections between data, systems, and practices that can be utilized to braid PBIS/MTSS with trauma sensitive practices, and SEL to increase student social and academic engagement.
