Educators teaching English Language Learners have the responsibility to ensure access to the most effective and appropriate learning environment. When an ELL student is struggling academically, educators need to understand the multiple and complex factors affecting a student's learning. Student behaviors observed may appear similar to characteristics of a disability and educators need to carefully rule out all factors that are not intrinsic to the individual. It is challenging to distinguish if language acquisition, cultural and linguistic diversity, gaps in learning or an actual disorder is at play. A multidisciplinary team must investigate, paying special attention to contexts and rule out systemic or external factors prior to making a referral.

In this workshop, participants will examine factors that must be considered when a student is at risk for referral to special education:
- What are the legal requirements of serving English Language Leaners?
- Who has knowledge of the process of second language acquisition and the linguistic background and history of the student?
- How does the quality of current classroom instruction and prior schooling experiences impact student performance?
- Are cultural dynamics or social-emotional resilience influencing interactions?
- How are interventions and assessments being utilized in decision making?
- What are the clinical markers of a disability and is there a deficit in the home language?

Educators face a unique challenge when students are culturally, linguistically and academically diverse and yet, they are expected to meet common standards. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a scientifically valid framework based on cognitive neuroscience that suggests variability within the learner is predictable and can be systematically addressed. UDL provides us with the guidelines to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all by planning instruction from the beginning that is culturally responsive and linguistically appropriate by being flexible, engaging, validating, strategic and motivating. When applied to English language learners, we can predict and create the access points students will need to succeed with a "one size fits all" curriculum and standards.

In this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Examine the Universal Design for Learning framework to see how it applies to teaching culturally and linguistically diverse learners.
- Identify the potential barriers, preferences and supports for multi-lingual learners within the content areas.
- Design instruction that takes into consideration learner variability and anticipate student needs.
- Utilize the principles of UDL to develop students that are purposeful and motivated, resourceful and knowledgeable, strategic and goal oriented learners.
- Analyze illustrations (case studies, lesson plans and classroom examples) of UDL in action for language learners and all students.

Audience: Teachers Grades K05, Elementary School Science Specialists; Elementary School Principals

Dates: 12/9/2019

Today in the U.S., more than 10% of K-12 students are learning English. English language learners (ELLs) bring a wealth of ideas, perspectives, and solutions to to STEM classrooms. Yet many ELLs struggle academically leading to increased stress, reduced success, and low confidence in school, which adversely affects their post-secondary education and future employment opportunities. As it relates to learning STEM subjects, ELLs lack opportunities to engage with challenging disciplinary practices and content. In 2016, New York State enrolled 217,198 ELLs in K-12 public schools. ELLs are the fastest-growing group in K-12 public schools and are projected to reach as many as 40% of all U.S. K-12 public enrollment by 2040. In this one- day workshop we identify and share effective practices for immediate use with your ELL students to improve their ability to access content, elevate their academic achievement, and prepare them to reach their full potential in STEM.

96. Break Into Breakouts, the Digital Way

Program: LHRIC - Instructional Technology (Model Schools Courses)

Dates: 1/27/2020

You have probably heard the buzz about Breakout EDU. But have you experienced a Digital Breakout? In some ways, this form of Breakout EDU is more conducive to the "average" school room. No classroom set-up is required, students work in collaborative teams on a shared device, and there are no issues with those pesky locks! In this workshop, you will learn how to create your own Digital Breakout based on your own curriculum. Digital breakouts may take some time and thought to create, but once you have done the legwork, they can be used over and over with students. They provide the same engaged learning experience for students that traditional Breakouts involve: critical thinking, teamwork and complex problem solving. Come with a colleague and create a Digital Breakout together!

99. [HVRBERN-CTLE ID #23120] Pre-Referral Considerations for English Language Learners (AM SESSION) - at Dutchess BOCES

Program: 2019-2020 - HV-RBE-RN

Audience: All Teachers, Administrators, School Psychologists, Speech Teachers, and Educators of English Language Learners At-Risk for Special Education

Dates: 1/28/2020

TO REGISTER FOR THIS WORKSHOP PLEASE USE THE FOLLOWING LINK TO ENROLL AT DUTCHESS BOCES' SITE: CLICK HERE TO ENROLL

A challenge faced by educators when teaching English Language Learners is knowing whether a student's academic struggle is due to the typical process of acquiring a new language or to something more intrinsic, such as a disability. When learning a new language, individuals might display certain behaviors that can be mistaken for a disability because of their similar characteristics and educators must exercise caution when making decisions about referrals for special education. This workshop will invite participants to examine the behaviors associated with new language acquisition as well as clinical markers of a disability. We will identify factors that must be considered prior to referring an ELL student for an evaluation. Educators will engage in case study discussions to consider how languages, culture, social-emotional dynamics and academics interact and impact student achievement.

Registration/Sign-in: 9:00 am - 9:30 am

Cost: Free

100. [HVRBERN-CTLE ID #23120] Universal Design for Language Learners (PM SESSION) - at Dutchess BOCES

Program: 2019-2020 - HV-RBE-RN

Audience: All Classroom and Content Area Teachers, Administrators, Teaching Assistants and Speech or Reading Providers who support ELLs

Dates: 1/28/2020

TO REGISTER FOR THIS WORKSHOP, PLEASE USE THE FOLLOWING LINK TO ENROLL AT DUTCHESS BOCES' SITE: CLICK HERE TO ENROLL

Educators face a unique challenge when students are culturally, linguistically and academically diverse and yet, they are expected to meet common standards. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a scientifically valid framework based on cognitive neuroscience that suggests variability within the learner is predictable and can be systematically addressed. UDL provides us with the guidelines to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all by planning instruction from the beginning that is culturally responsive and linguistically appropriate by being flexible, engaging, validating, strategic and motivating. When applied to English language learners, we can predict and create the access points students will need to succeed with a "one size fits all" curriculum and standards.

In this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Examine the Universal Design for Learning framework to see how it applies to teaching culturally and linguistically diverse learners.
- Identify the potential barriers, preferences and supports for multi-lingual learners within the content areas.
- Design instruction that takes into consideration learner variability and anticipate student needs.
- Utilize the principles of UDL to develop students that are purposeful and motivated, resourceful and knowledgeable, strategic and goal oriented learners.
- Analyze illustrations (case studies, lesson plans and classroom examples) of UDL in action for language learners and all students.

Registration/Sign-in: 12:15 pm - 12:45 pm
