3. **** Virtual PD***Using Quotations to Generate Questions and Stimulate Conversations(Math, Science, SS, ELA, Sped)

Program: Curriculum & Instruction: Regional PD

Audience: grades 3-12 teachers and supervisors

Dates: 6/22/2021

Location: Online

Starting Soon
The shifts in the Next Generation Math and ELA standards and the NYSSLS science standards all focus on getting students to generate good questions. Students need practice with HOW to generate good questions in all subject areas. A neutral way to begin developing this practice in students of all ages is using quotes. Quotes are great for this purpose because they are short, provocative, and capture our attention in a way that touches hearts and minds. Quotes are similar to starting an ELA or SS lesson with a hook or starting a science lesson with natural phenomena, or starting a math lesson with a 3-act task. Used with the right teaching strategy, quotes can be great question-generators and conversation starters. This workshop will teach educators two main teaching strategies for getting students to generate good questions: 1) Question Formulation Technique (QFT) and 2) Teach Different 3-Step Conversation Method.

This workshop is based in part on the work of Tim Shanahan as well as other experts. Participants will have time to read, notice and note, and discuss and apply what experts in the field share with us.

Program: Curriculum & Instruction: Regional PD

Praise is a well-researched, specific strategy that supports positive student learning.

The way in which teachers praise students influences their perception of their intelligence and their future responses to challenges and failures. Understand the power of praise and the impact it has on student performance, self-worth and overall self-concept.

- Learn to praise effort to avoid praising ability
- Differentiate between non behavior specific praise and behavior specific praise
- Practice praising effort and behavior specific praise to prepare for future instruction - Create a passion for learning not a passion for approval

Program: Curriculum & Instruction: Regional PD

Audience: Educators, Social Workers, Psychologists, Guidance Counselors

Dates: 10/19/2021

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

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
