Program: CPE Credit Courses

Dates: 10/4/2021 to 11/13/2021

Online Course
New
Students are exposed to a variety of media throughout the day. Media is an influential force in the lives of students. Television, radio, computers, internet, social media, streaming, video games and smartphones are just a few examples of the media that students interact with daily. However, when it comes to being able to recognize real news versus a fake news article that might appear on their feed, the majority of students cannot tell the difference. Educators have a responsibility to teach students how to critically engage with mass media. In order to be an informed citizen, students must know how to access, analyze, evaluate, create and act using all forms of media. It is imperative that students possess these skills so that they can make informed decisions as adults. During this three-credit online course, participants will come to understand what media literacy skills are, their importance in the classroom, how to integrate media literacy skills and design lessons and activities that will help students to become media literate.

Online Course
New
Anxiety & Stress: Teacher and Student Wellness is a course that guides participants in developing and implementing classroom strategies that cultivate teacher and student well-being. The ways in which teachers and students react to anxiety and stress will determine the growth (or lack thereof) and experiences in the classroom each day. Mental health is of great concern in the classroom (and the world) as educational, financial, social, mental and emotional pressures can seem overwhelming at times. Teacher and student well-being must first be addressed before teaching and learning can take place. Participants will explore curricula for how to best deal with their students' anxiety and stress in the classroom.

83. Countywide 2021: US Immigration Law: Implications for Chester County's Undocumented and Unaccompanied Immigrant Children with Lindsay Sweet

Program: Countywide Inservice

Audience: Educators of EL Students

Dates: 11/2/2021

Meeting Times: 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM; Room opens at 7:50 AM

Facilitated by Lindsey Sweet, founding partner of Sweet & Paciorek, LLC, a Chester County immigration and nationality law firm.

While the United States Immigration laws passed by Congress have not undergone an overhaul in almost 20 years, the policies of what undocumented immigrants are, who should be detained by ICE, who constitutes an asylum seeker, and who is likely to become a public charge have all changed drastically over the past 3 years. These shifts in policy have had dramatic effects on both undocumented and documented immigrant children and their families.

This session will bring you up to speed on the current legal landscape for many of Chester County's immigrant families by answering some of the pressing questions being asked by educators across the county:
- What immigration options are still available for undocumented children and families to obtain lawful status in the United States?
- My student says that he/she is seeking asylum-what does that mean?
- What happens if one of my student's parents is detained during the school day?
- What is the public charge rule and who does it apply to?

A native of Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, Lindsey has also lived and studied in Veracruz, Mexico. After graduating from Haverford College, Lindsey worked with the Pennsylvania Migrant Education Program for 4 years where she provided supplemental education to the children of migrant farmworkers in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Since 2006, Lindsey has worked defending immigrant legal rights and has been licensed to practice law in the states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey since 2009.
