The JCK Foundation's "Legends Program" shows how connection and community are key building blocks to mental wellness by preventing social isolation and building resilience! We want NO ONE to ever feel like they are alone in their mental health journey, and everyone to realize just how much their story matters and is respected. Through our program, we hope to cultivate an environment where students feel valued, accepted, and motivated to make a positive impact on their own wellness and that of their peers. We also provide students tools and strategies to have a conversation with their classmates about mental health and we work hand in hand with each school to connect students to resources such as the counseling center. We are very excited to bring these ideas and strategies to the Consortium as we feel it can really benefit teachers.

"The Building Blocks of Mental Wellness" is an interactive workshop that focuses on what mental health means to "us" collectively. The "Legends Talk" is a powerful storytelling experience that highlights the power of listening, resilience, and the importance of your own story! Following the workshops, we conduct breakout groups which gives the audience a chance to reflect on their experience and have powerful conversations with colleagues and our team.

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!

Dates: 1/28/2020

Closed
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: 8:00 am - 8:30 am

Cost: Free

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.

20. TEACHING CONTROVERSIAL ISSUES IN THE SOCIAL STUDIES CLASS

Program: 2019-2020 - Social Studies

Audience: Middle and high school teachers, Department Chairpersons

Dates: 2/3/2020

Social studies teachers must inevitably deal with controversial issues such as teaching about religion, fairness and equality in a democracy, immigration, racism, anti-semitism, and Islamophobia. Controversial issues require students to conduct thorough research, master concepts, and develop a perspective of their own. It is critical for students to learn how to listen to opposing viewpoints, and the teacher's role must be to create an open forum that allows opposing viewpoints to be fully expressed. The challenge for teachers is to ļ¬nd the ļ¬ne line between engaging students' interest and maintaining a sense of objectivity that lets students master the material and develop their own perspectives. This workshop explores strategies and materials to integrate the teaching of controversial issues in the social studies classroom.

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 conļ¬dence 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.

    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.

    This hands-on workshop will present frameworks and instructional strategies for literacy engagement for all students, especially ELLs. Research on exemplary literacy practices in the Hudson Valley demonstrates that students benefit from opportunities to use language critically, in multiple contexts, in different modalities (reading, writing, listening and speaking), and through the lenses of their culture and identity. Therefore, this hands-on workshop will 1) explore critical and culturally responsive literacy frameworks, and 2) examine instructional practices such as before, during and after reading strategies that promote critical discussions among students.

    This workshop will start promptly at 9am. Please arrive 15 minutes early.

    Fee: Free

    Lunch: Will be provided
