• A process to select and teach expected classroom behaviors.

• Everyday ‘teacher-talk’ techniques that promote student motivation.

• Whole-group management packages that harness ‘positive peer pressure' to support pro-learning behaviors.

• A framework for recognizing when students are in crisis (“Aggression Cycle”) and recommendations to de-escalate those behaviors.
The ideas and strategies featured in the workshop are consistent with the Response-to-Intervention/Behavior model. All resources shared at this training will be posted on a webpage for easy access.

80. The Mindful Teacher: Cultivating Inner Resilience in Ourselves as Teachers

Program: CPDCS - 17-18 School Climate and Culture - CC

Audience: Grades K-12 teachers

Dates: 11/8/2017

For many of us in the teaching profession, our professional lives may have started out with a deep inner calling. We may have held onto a sense that our occupation was also our vocation. However, as we continued to serve and lead in a variety of roles, staying connected to this calling and sense of inner purpose may at times have become challenging.
Teachers need of a deeper sense of community and more opportunities to cultivate a capacity for meaning and purpose in their lives. They need safe places and experiences that challenge us to, in Parker Palmer’s words, “live on the outside, the truth we know on the inside.”
This workshop discusses how teachers can nurture their own sense of purpose and vision and create opportunities for reflection and personal renewal for themselves and their students. The workshop will explore how participants can cultivate the habits of mind, body, and heart to systematically relieve the pressures that they face in order to give their best to those they serve.
Using principles, derived from modern brain research, the workshop will focus on how to strengthen a teacher’s social and emotional capacities by equipping participants with mindfulness practices that can help regulate emotions, increase compassion, and cultivate inner resilience

98. Supporting Struggling Learning: The Executive Function Lens (K-12)

Program: CPDCS - 17-18 Instructional Best Practices - INSTR

Audience: Grades K-12

Dates: 12/5/2017

Schools spend considerable time perfecting lessons and purchasing the best program materials, but perhaps the key to student achievement isn’t just the perfect lesson. As Dr. Nancy Sulla states in her book, Building Executive Function: The Missing Link to Student Achievement, “only the possession of strong executive function skills will provide students with ‘cognitive access’ to the content that will lead to learning….the key to unlocking content and ensuring a pathway to long-term memory is through executive function.” Executive Function is the missing link to increased achievement; a deliberate focus on building executive function skills can change a student’s academic trajectory. In this session you will explore activities, structures, and facilitation strategies to build executive function.

This program may be used to meet 5.5 hours toward CTLE requirements. CTLE ID# 322. Check with your district for eligibility.

Fee:
$249 per participant for CoSer 555 members
