23. Online - Ongoing - Language and Culture: The Path to Global Citizenship Facilitated by Joshua Cabral

Program: Eastern Suffolk BOCES Professional Development Program

Audience: Teachers of Foreign Languages

Dates: 2/1/2021

Learn at your own pace! What is the role of culture in your language classroom? Is it enough to teach facts and anecdotes that relate to food, holidays, social structure and traditions? This is a starting point, but we need guide students to engage with culture that goes beyond facts and leads to an understanding of why culturally specific practices and beliefs exist. We will explore the framework of ten cultural value dimensions and learn how to use them to prepare students to be global citizens with a strong Cultural Intelligence (CQ). It is best to embed the study of culture into language proficiency goals, rather than teaching them separately. To meet this goal, we will look at target language needed to discuss culture along with the language needed to engage authentically and respectfully. Agenda: -ACTFL Intercultural Can-Do Statements -Intercultural Communication -Approaching cultural Topics at various proficiency levels -Target language needed to discuss and explore culture -Target language needed to engage in culture -Authentic cultural resources and raising student's CQ (cultural intelligence) by looking at culture through the framework of cultural value dimensions. -CQ: The capability to function effectively across a variety of cultural contexts Cultural Value Dimensions Language and Culture: The Path to Global Citizenship consists of 2 45-min videos and 10 accompanying downloadable materials and templates. A Google form will be provided for participants to enter their questions for follow up Q&A videos (1 per content video) in which the presenter will address participants' specific questions. These videos will be posted on the workshop Website along with the content videos. The Website link & password with access to all videos and materials will be provided within 24 hours of the start date. Slides will be provided for each of the videos so note taking will not be necessary. Any questions, please reach out to the presenter, Joshua Cabral, at joshua@wlclassroom.com.

According to recent statistics, nearly 1 in 5 people are diagnosed with a Mental Illness in the United States.

This workshop aims to give teachers a fundamental understanding of mental illness, focusing on depression and anxiety. Best practices for how to assist students towards wellness will also be provided.
In embracing such unique attributes as the learning styles, cultures, and family dynamics of students. An exciting and new horizon is the undeniable benefits of also understanding and adapting to students' neurodiversity, a skill all teachers must embrace and flourish. Neurodiversity includes, but may not be limited to, learning disabilities, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism, intellectual disabilities, and emotional and behavioral disorders. Teachers' expertise in understanding how such neurodiversity impacts learning and development of the student can surely ensure a positive environment in which all can thrive in the classroom. This course will focus on the characteristics of the various neurodiversities, strategies for each that can be used to teach and progress students, the benefits of such strategies and exercises for both the neurodiverse and neurotypical students as well as information and discussions on how to support the parents of such students.
This course is designed to prepare bilingual, ESOL, and interested mainstream teachers to successfully work with English Language Learners, in the context of bilingual/ESL programs.

The image of a successful person can vary from one individual to the next; however, upon closer inspection those who succeed share a common quality: their mindset. This course will examine how teachers have the ability to positively impact their own lives as a result of mindset, but equally important, how students can benefit from a growth mindset culture. Participants will discover what mindsets are and how they affect the classroom, specific ways to cultivate this culture, the role of critical thinking, a fixed mindset or a growth mindset, ways to change mindsets, and ultimately, a new way of thinking that can transform students' learning experiences.
