To that end, we began a new network group, called the Curriculum Revision Think Tank.

This group is meeting regularly starting in the spring of 2021 through at least December 2021 beyond if needed. It is an opportunity for those responsible for organizing and overseeing curriculum revision to come together to share effective processes and resources, and problem-solve together.

Equity by Design is intended to serve as a blueprint for teachers to alter the all-too-predictable outcomes for our historically under-served students. A first-of-its-kind resource, the book makes the critical link between social justice and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) so that we can equip students (and teachers, too) with the will, skill, and collective capacity to enact positive change.

The Authors say:
"Every student,” Mirko and Katie insist, "deserves the opportunity to be successful regardless of their zip code, the color of their skin, the language they speak, their sexual and/or gender identity, and whether or not they have a disability.” Consider Equity by Design a critical first step forward in providing that all-important opportunity.

Participants in the Community of Practice will explore
- Concrete strategies for designing and delivering a culturally responsive, sustainable, and equitable framework for all students
- Rich examples, case studies, and implementation spotlights of educators, students (including Parkland survivors), and programs that have embraced a social justice imperative
- Evidence-based application of best practices for UDL to create more inclusive and equitable classrooms
- A flexible format to facilitate use with individual teachers, teacher teams, and as the basis for whole-school implementation
- Q&A session with co-author Mirko Chardin

Virtual Workshop
New
Facilitated by Terri A. Erbacher, Ph.D.

Pennsylvania Act 18 requires all school entities to have threat assessment teams by the Fall of 2021. 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

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.

Participants will develop an action plan to acknowledge and address anxiety and stressors in the classroom so that calmness, awareness, insightfulness and presence are established and academic goals can be met.

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. Participants will also explore scientific research, best practices and the holistic education of the mind and body that we strive to provide our 21st century students. Both teacher and student must maintain a level of self-care and awareness in order to make great academic and personal strides. Participants will develop an action plan to acknowledge and address anxiety and stressors in the classroom so that calmness, awareness, insightfulness and presence are established and academic goals can be met.

Required Text: Participants will need to purchase the interactive textbook (digital or paper) titled Stress Management for Teachers A ProActive Guide by Herman and Reinke, ISBN-13: 978-1462517985
