Audience: General education, special education and content-area Teachers and Administrators of ELLs

Dates: 8/7/2018

This workshop will invite participants to dive into the behaviors associated with new language acquisition and clinical markers of a disability.

A challenge faced by some 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 want to exercise caution when making decisions about services.

Program: 2018-2019 - Instructional Best Practices - INSTR

Audience: K-5 ELA Teachers and Department Leaders

Dates: 10/2/2018

We live in a world that is incredibly rich in differences—differences in the way we look, ethnicity, religion, ability and behaviors. 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, teachers and school 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 elementary teachers with the resources and model lessons they need to dismantle stereotypes and build a tolerant and accepting school community.
