Connecting learning objectives to assessment and feedback are key to providing students with a transparent online learning experience where they can thrive and be successful. This all begins with backwards design which keeps the student in the center of the experience.

In this Trail Guide, you will dig into designing effective student-facing assessments and instruction for online delivery. As we think about what students should know or be able to do at the end of a course, we can design assessments (and activities) that will help students successfully achieve the end-of-unit and end-of-course objectives. This Trail Guide provides you with the mindset about what we can communicate to our students through assessment and feedback, how to ensure alignment, and the variety of assessments from which you might select in the online setting. You'll also be empowered with the design details you'll want to include in your assessment when delivering directions to the student.

This Trail Guide should take you no more than 3 hours to complete and reviews course- and module-level learning objectives while using alignment to ensure that assessments are varied and supportive of the learning objectives. The content is based on Standards 2 and 3 of the Quality Matters Rubric. This workshop is available to Chester County public and charter schools only. Each participant will receive a digital badge upon completion.

You will be given access to this professional learning through Canvas after enrolling. This course has open enrollment through October 21, 2022. All coursework must be completed by November 1, 2022 for Act 48 credit.

In an increasingly divided world, the need for civil and open discourse is more apparent than ever. It is critically important that students learn how to meaningfully engage while learning how to analyze different perspectives and respectfully respond to dissenting opinions; however, it can be challenging for teachers to do so in a way that preserves a classroom space that remains safe and productive for all.

This four week course aims to help educators create more meaningful conversations by utilizing the tools typically found when preparing for competitive debate. While this course will review the theory and application of each topic within the world of debate, the primary focus is to identify specific strategies that can be used within a variety of classroom settings.

At the end of this course, participants will have a toolbox that they can use when unpacking complex, nuanced and (often) politically charged topics within the classroom. In addition, this course will review strategies for how teachers can build strategies for unpacking bias, exploring identity, and creating authentic engagement opportunities for students.

Facilitated by Terri A. Erbacher, Ph.D.

Pennsylvania Act 18 requires all school entities to have threat assessment teams. Threat assessment requires both the assessment of - and intervention with - students who may present as a threat to others. Thus, threat assessment must be an integral part of a system that fosters a safe, supportive, and effective school environment, characterized by trust between students and adults, respect for others, parent involvement, and collaboration between school and community. Pennsylvania requires that threat assessment procedures be in place that are fair and ensure equitable practices.

This full-day virtual training will provide school-based teams a valuable opportunity to:
- learn how to identify students at risk for a variety of mental health problems
- assess various levels of threats
- plan for safety when needed and return students to appropriate learning environments.

Participation in this program will help participants:
1. Understand the rationale for school-based threat assessment
2. Develop procedures for their own districts and schools to assess threats of violence according to Pennsylvania Act 18 requirements
3. Implement research-based practices related to assessment and intervention of youth at risk for violence
4. Consider practical issues in the development of school threat assessment teams

LEAs are invited to register a team of three per school. Each team shall include individuals with expertise in
- School health
- Counseling, school psychology, or social work
- Special education
- School administration
- The school safety and security coordinator appointed under section 1309-B

Facilitated by Katie Novak, Ed.D., an internationally renowned education consultant, author, graduate instructor at the University of Pennsylvania, and a former Assistant Superintendent of Schools in Massachusetts.

For centuries, schools worked well for those students who arrived ready to learn. When students struggled, they were often labeled as disabled - yet research is now clear that it's not students, but our systems, that are disabled. Inclusive practices challenge education systems of the past by embracing student variability and eliminating barriers to learning.

In this virtual session, we will explore Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a framework for inclusive education that empowers all students to become expert learners who are purposeful & motivated, resourceful & knowledgeable, and strategic & goal-directed, regardless of their variability.

Pennsylvania Act 18 requires all school entities to have threat assessment teams. Threat assessment requires both the assessment of - and intervention with - students who may present as a threat to others. Thus, threat assessment must be an integral part of a system that fosters a safe, supportive, and effective school environment, characterized by trust between students and adults, respect for others, parent involvement, and collaboration between school and community. Pennsylvania requires that threat assessment procedures be in place that are fair and ensure equitable practices.

This full-day virtual training will provide school-based teams a valuable opportunity to:
- learn how to identify students at risk for a variety of mental health problems
- assess various levels of threats
- plan for safety when needed and return students to appropriate learning environments.

Participation in this program will help participants:
1. Understand the rationale for school-based threat assessment
2. Develop procedures for their own districts and schools to assess threats of violence according to Pennsylvania Act 18 requirements
3. Implement research-based practices related to assessment and intervention of youth at risk for violence
4. Consider practical issues in the development of school threat assessment teams

LEAs are invited to register a team of three per school. Each team shall include individuals with expertise in - School health
- Counseling, school psychology, or social work
- Special education
- School administration
- The school safety and security coordinator appointed under section 1309-B
