Program: Curriculum & Instruction: Regional PD

Audience: Educators, Social Workers, Psychologists, Guidance Counselors

Dates: 10/19/2021

Location: Online

ADHD is considered to be a neurodevelopmental disorder, often referred to as a performance disorder, that impacts approximately 6.1 million children ages 4-17 (CDC.gov). Many students with ADHD have difficulty staying focused on a task, paying attention and controlling their impulses. The condition is pervasive and affects all areas of development including academic, behavioral, and social-emotional growth. Poor performance on tasks can be misinterpreted as a lack of motivation when in reality, ADHD physiologically prevents students from performing and reaching goals.

Participants will:
-Gain a deeper level of understanding about ADHD and how it manifests in different stages of development
- Discover the educational outcomes and prevalence of ADHD
- Recognize the different types of ADHD
- Understand ADHD as a performance disorder not a motivational disorder
- Discuss how to use visual charts paired with actionable strategies

41. LICEE - 2/4 Constructing the Innocent Classroom: Dismantling Racial Bias for Our Children of Color

Program: Curriculum & Instruction: Regional PD

Audience: Administrators

Dates: 10/26/2021

Location: Online

Every child should know what it is like to feel innocent - to believe that this world is open to them. Our society's stereotypes stand in the way. We partner with administrators, principals, and classroom teachers to help them build relationships that liberate children of color from the power of racial stereotypes in their schools and classrooms.

Session 2 of 4 ... This half-day session is offered to LICEE district curriculum and instruction and building level administrators. It is suggested you register for all 4 sessions

Session 2: Recognizing Good and Innocence This session introduces the process of discovering the good of a child and provides a new framework to understand behavior. Educators are challenged to develop strategies and use tools like "The Good Questions” to learn enough about the three children they selected to make an initial determination of each child's good. This directly undermines racial bias by replacing stereotypes about a child with actual and authentic knowledge about who that child is. Intended outcomes for educators following this session:






• Understand the connection between a child's behavior, guilt, good, and innocence.






• Employ new tools (e.g. The Good Questions) to learn information about the internal life of the three students they selected.






• Anticipate that knowing a child's good will create an essential empathy that demands action on behalf of the child.

Program: Curriculum & Instruction: Regional PD

Audience: Educators, Social Workers, Psychologists, Guidance Counselors

Dates: 10/26/2021

Location: Onnline

Students can become overwhelmed and shut down before trying to work through a challenge. Whereas, many students can easily apply the skills necessary to be successful academically, behaviorally and social-emotionally others have difficulty. When students are unable to engage in strategic learning, they risk believing that assignments and social situations are too challenging to attempt or to overcome. Their perception can influence their belief system to the degree that it becomes their reality. Student performance and self-concept benefits from identifying that they can manage their own perceptions to improve their academic, behavioral and social-emotional skills. Learn how to gain the positive attention from your students when they are feeling defeated. In this workshop participants will:
-Understand perception as a cognitive skill
- Analyze how perception relates to learning
- Learn to manage the different perceptions of students
- Discover strategies to explicitly teach perception

Dates: 5/12/2022

Location: Online

This full-day session is offered to LICEE district curriculum and instruction and building level administrators.

The spoken word is the primary tool teachers use to educate, motivate and positively influence the social and emotional health of students. In the dynamic learning environments emerging from our pandemic experience, the use of language that provides teachers with the highest potential impact on student learning, behavior and emotional state has never been more important. In this workshop, educators will learn the three pillars of "Wonder Words" to elevate the critical tool of verbally engaging with students: 1) Word Choice 2) Delivery Style and 3) Context. Strategies for building emotionally safe classrooms, boosting motivation, shaping behavior, developing effective academic habits and promoting resilience will be shared and practiced.

Participants will walk away from this learning experience with practices they can apply immediately to respond to all the needs and opportunities students will bring to our everchanging school context. By the end of the workshop participants will be able to:





• Identify the reasons why the specific words used with students has such significant impact on student motivation, mindset, behavior, and performance.




• Utilize research-based, concrete strategies to create emotional safety in the classroom, boost student motivation, positively shape student behavior, help students develop effective academic habits, and promote student resilience.




• Reflect on the actual use of these strategies with students and recommend modification of the strategies to fit individual needs and contexts.
