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.

Program: 2018-2019 - Instructional Best Practices - INSTR

Audience: School and district administrators; RTI Coordinators; psychologists; social workers; counselors

Dates: 12/11/2018

When schools adopt a building-wide approach to provide behavioral and social-emotional support through Multi-tiered System of Support (MTSS), they typically see a substantial jump in student motivation and a drop in disciplinary office referrals.

This full-day hands-on workshop unfolds in two parts. It opens with a segment reviewing tools schools can use to evaluate their current behavior management programming at the building and classroom level to bring it into alignment with MTSS best practices. Under the direction of the presenter, participants will then have the remainder of the day to evaluate their current MTSS/behavior implementation, identify gaps, network with other schools, and formulate a take-away plan for improving their MTSS model

During the training, participants will gain:

• An understanding of how a school's investing in social-emotional/behavioral MTSS can result in positive changes in discipline and student motivation

• Specific recommendations for adopting school-wide screeners and progress-monitoring tools suitable for social emotional/behavioral MTSS

• A behavioral MTSS checklist to verify the presence and quality of critical elements of school-wide behavior management

As a feature of this workshop, participants will have access to an online set of resources to help them to access and use workshop resources to implement a social-emotional/behavioral MTSS model back in their school or district.

    Program: 2018-2019 - Instructional Best Practices - INSTR

    Audience: Grades 6-12 ELA Teachers and Department Leaders

    Dates: 12/13/2018

    We live in a world that is incredibly rich in differences—differences in the way we look, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, and the ways we learn. Now more than ever, it is of the utmost importance that we teach children the value of tolerance. Our schools need to be stewards of tolerance because it is a fundamental ingredient to create safe and accepting environments. Schools need to help instill a sense of appreciation for all forms of cultural expression and learning. To this end, secondary ELA teachers and department leaders need tools for enculturating these beliefs and overcoming barriers that impede those beliefs when they arise. One of the most effective approaches to conquering intolerance and stereotypes is to build a culture of empathy and celebrate differences. This workshop will provide educators with opportunities to experience model lessons and explore literary/media resources that can help them dismantle stereotypes and build a more culturally responsive and accepting school community.

Most of the highly popular coding environments (Scratch, Tynker, Code.org) are based on "building blocks" that make it easy to create interactive stories, animations, games, music and art. As students become immersed in coding work, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.

    This session is geared specifically for those who may not have a formal programming or computer science background, but are open to exploring how the thinking involved in coding can help enhance thinking across all disciplines. You will actively engage in programming scenarios where you will become familiar with the interface, commands, and basic protocols/commands of Scratch.

    Program: 2018-2019 - Instructional Best Practices - INSTR

    Audience: Middle and high school math instructors; RTI Coordinators; math coaches; math interventionists

    Dates: 1/8/2019

    Poor math performance is a frequent concern, especially in the secondary grades. Yet there are many reasons that a student might struggle with math, including skill deficits, inadequate study &test-preparation routines, a failure to apply (generalize) current skills to new math demands & pervasive math anxiety.

    This training is designed for middle and high-school math educators, including general & special education teachers, math interventionists & school consultants. It draws from the latest research to present a profile of the ‘math-challenged’ student & to link this profile to specific, effective intervention strategies.

    Topics:

    • How to identify & prioritize a student’s most significant math-related difficulties in clear, specific terms

    • Effective interventions to address targeted math skills

    • Time-saving intervention-delivery ideas such as having students manage their own interventions and serve as peer tutors to other learners

    • Accommodations approved for general-education classrooms to assist students with math delays

    • Convenient progress-monitoring tools that allow teachers to measure real-time student growth on math-related intervention targets

    • A streamlined ‘short’ form and directions for writing up a math intervention plan to share with important stakeholders such as parents, RTI, Section 504, or Spec. Ed. Teams (CSE)

    Program: 2018-2019 - HV-RBE-RN

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

    Dates: 1/8/2019

    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: 8:30-9:00 am

    Cost: Free

    Lunch: On your own

    Audience: Grade K-12 general and special education teachers, Deans, School Counselors, Paraprofessionals, Asst. Principals, Behavior Specialists

    Dates: 1/11/2019

    We often don't know what to do with students who exhibit challenging behavior. Behavior modification systems assume that the student requires motivation in order to change his/her behavior. That they can change their behavior if they only wanted to. However, 50 years of neuro-scientific research suggests that these challenging behaviors are actually be due to specific neuro-cognitive skill deficits, which can be taught.
    Spend the day learning and practicing an evidence-based method effective in changing challenging behavior and actually rewiring the brain to build the missing cognitive skills causing the behavior. You will learn to assess for the missing skills and how to collaborate with the student in order to solve the problem behavior. This strategy has been successful with Elementary, Middle and High School students.
