The value and strength of diversity in the STEM fields has become increasingly described in educational literature. ALL PARTICIPANTS WILL KNOW AND BE ABLE TO: Implement varied and effective research-based teaching and assessment strategies that align with learning styles, Ensure that all students are in a learning environment that encourages them to participate fully in class discussions and science activities Science teachers, administrators, and community members must select only those curriculum materials that promote gender inclusiveness, and those curriculum materials that present culturally diverse male and female role models working in all disciplines and at all levels TOPICS INCLUDE:
•How do we support students’ cultural border crossing?
•Students learn to code switch in order to be successful in science. We can support their cultural needs

In a society that values speed, productivity, and competition, it's hard to justify stopping. As we race forward, filling up our calendars and checking off items on our "to-do" lists, we rarely live in the present. Young people, of course, are far from immune to this trend. Growing up overscheduled with cell phones at age 10, today's students need schools that encourage social interaction, compassion, patience, and introspection. Participants in this full-day workshop will learn about mindfulness philosophy and practices, and how they apply to education.

ALL PARTICIPANTS WILL KNOW AND BE ABLE TO:
• Define mindfulness
• Identify ways mindfulness practices can be applied in classrooms
• Identify the social/emotional and cognitive benefits for students
• Integrate mindfulness practices to enhance classroom culture

Program: Leadership Academy:Seminar Series

Audience: Members of the Leadership Academy: Seminar Series

Dates: 6/6/2017

Meeting Times: 3:30pm - 6:00pm

In order to facilitate positive cross-racial, cross-ethnic, and cross-cultural relationships, we have to acknowledge the dynamics of power and privilege. We must begin by investigating societal power structures that impact teaching and learning and then develop solutions for breaking down barriers to equity and racial justice. Part of this investigation requires each of us to personally reflect on the salience of race in our own lives, including a loss or gain of societal privileges based on our individual identities. This workshop will prompt participants to investigate: 1) the impact of systemic racism in schools, 2) the salience of our staff and students' multiple identities and their attributed power and privilege, and 3) techniques for building a critical racial consciousness. Participants will leave with the tools to incorporate shared language around race, power, and privilege and with actionable steps for promoting positive racial, ethnic and cultural development through intentional relationships across diverse identities.

Participants will be able to identify and discuss high-leverage strategies to support reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Additionally, participants will consider student learning and how to approach reteaching when student learning is deemed insufficient. This workshop is based on the book, Visible Learning for Literacy: Implementing the Practices That Work Best to Accelerate Student Learning, K-12, co-authored by John Hattie, Douglas Fisher, and Nancy Frey. Participants do not need to read or purchase the book in order to attend the workshop.
