Program: ESC of Central Ohio Achievement & Leadership Services

Dates: 4/6/2017

These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identify issues boys and young men must navigate to become "real men". Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the "boy crisis" and tactics to combat it. This film illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men.

19. Differences, Not Disabilities: Educational Leadership Lunch Bunch

Program: ESC of Central Ohio Achievement & Leadership Services

Dates: 4/21/2017

All too often students are defined by their disability-a label affixed to their IEP, student records, and, over time, their identity. A growing movement seeks to shift the paradigm from "learning disabilities" to "learning differences." This small semantic change signals a shift in acknowledging that no two brains are the same, so no two students learn in the same fashion. Explore the research into the science of various learning differences as well as articles on skills-based strategies that help students learn. Instead of labeling ADHD, autism, or dyslexia as deficits, how can we use all students' strengths to help them learn? How can approaches like Universal Design for Learning meet the unique needs of all? Share how you have embraced learning differences and the effect it has had on student achievement and school climate.
