In a society that values speed, productivity, and competition, it's hard to justify stopping.

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.

• Define mindfulness
• Identify ways mindfulness practices can be applied in classrooms

10. Developing A Critical Consciousness to Address the Impact of Race, Power, and Privilege in Teaching and Learning

Program: Leadership Academy:Seminar Series

Audience: Members of the Leadership Academy: Seminar Series

Dates: 6/6/2017

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

Location: 137

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.

Someone secretly hands you a crumpled up sheet of paper. Curious, you open the paper up and smooth it out to read it. It's a list of literacy practices that, if implemented, your students' literacy skills will improve by more than a year's growth. Do you throw it out? Probably not. In this workshop, participants will learn about a three-phase model of literacy instruction: surface learning, deep learning, and transfer. In each phase, there are a variety of instructional strategies which can be chosen to improve student learning by at least one year. 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.
