Audience: ENL Teachers, Content and General Education Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Building Leaders, Curriculum Administrators

Dates: 5/26/2020 to 6/8/2020

ClosedStarting Soon
Learning has shifted from schools to homes and the modality of instruction, for most, is transitioning from face-to-face to online. These transitions are happening simultaneously with many families making similar shifts in their professional lives.

Family engagement should encourage and empower families to be their own champions. As a community, we need to work toward goals that focus on specific family strengths, resources, and needs.

As families work through the challenges of making these transitions, educators must use best practices for family engagement in order to provide emotional and technical support, compassion, and encouragement as they partner on facilitating learning in the home.

This workshop will provide actionable steps educators can take to foster and build upon a school-to-home partnership.

The estimated amount of time needed to complete this module is approximately 3 hours. You may stop at any time and resume it at any time.

Program: 2019-2020 - HV-RBE-RN

Audience: ENL Teachers, Content and General Education Teachers, Teaching Assistants, School and District Leadership

Dates: 5/29/2020 to 6/15/2020

NewStarting Soon
This workshop will present frameworks and instructional strategies for literacy engagement for secondary (7-12) students, especially ELLs. Research on exemplary literacy practices, including approaches developed and implemented 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 and those of others. Therefore, this hands-on workshop will:

1) explore critical and culturally responsive literacy frameworks
2) examine instructional practices that promote cross-cultural understanding and critical discussions among students, while empowering them to take transformative civic action

Concepts, themes, and theories in this workshop include culture and acculturation, identity texts, racial literacy, and critically informed civic engagement as presented in the works of James Banks, Gloria Ladson-Billings, Jim Cummins and James Baldwin, among others.
