18. Teaching Mathematics to English Language Learners - Grades 3-6

Program: Curriculum and Instruction: Regional PD

Audience: teachers

Dates: 2/11/2019

Mathematics can be thought of as a dense, un-ambivalent, and formal technical language. But in the learning of mathematics our students and we often rely on informal, non-standard, everyday vernacular. This leads to a number of problems for native English learners and even more so for English language learners (ELLs). The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics have formulated the Mathematical Practice of attending to mathematical precision (MP.6), which explicitly targets how we communicate in mathematics. In this hands-on workshop we will consider and explore developmentally appropriate instructional strategies and scaffolds for working with ELLs that specifically target development in this standard, with the premise that this will give these students and others access to and success in mathematics. A database of resources will be available through a website created for this purpose.

Program: Curriculum and Instruction: Regional PD

One out of four children in a school classroom have experienced trauma and the likelihood of children in a special education classroom who have experienced trauma may be as high as 80% of all classified students in a district. Children who experience prolonged trauma have been shown to develop difficulties with internalizing and externalizing behaviors and may likely struggle in their cognitive and executive function development. In addition, studies have shown that children who experience early childhood trauma have disorganized or disrupted attachment. Other students may respond to their unstable affect regulation with internalizing behaviors such as withdrawal, shutting down, or zoning out.



• Realize the impact of trauma on a child’s neurobiology and the influence of this atypical neuro-biological development on learning and social/emotional growth.

88. The Legal Ramifications Surrounding Social Media for Students and Staff

Program: Curriculum and Instruction: Regional PD

Audience: school administrators

Dates: 4/24/2019

Location: LS2

The proliferation of electronic media in schools, both as a teaching tool as well as a means of communication, has been a blessing as well as a curse. In addition to all of its well established positive aspects, unfortunately, it has also blurred the lines of acceptable communication between students, between students and their teachers, and between students and the anonymous populace who frequent “cyberspace”. Wireless access and schools who encourage students to “bring their own devices” has even further complicated the issue as now questions of privacy have surfaced.

This workshop, designed for school administrators, will introduce participants to the legal issues surrounding social media. It will focus on the liability school districts may face for inadequate regulation, as well as the Constitutional limits school districts may face as they create social media policies.
The workshop will conclude with an opportunity for administrators to begin the process of drafting a legally defensible social media policy.
