Have you ever wished you had a safe, non-judgmental space to ask questions about LGBTQ+ individuals and identity? Are you confused by the differences between gender, expression, identity and orientation? Have you ever wondered what the letters in the LGBTQ+ initialism mean? Would you like strategies for creating more welcoming and affirming learning spaces for LGBTQ+ students, colleagues, and families? This professional learning opportunity provides the tools you need! While progress is slowly being made to create more welcoming and affirming learning spaces there is still much to be done. For LGBTQ+ students, colleagues, and families the school environment can pose numerous threats and obstacles. Below are some eye-opening statistics from GLSEN's (Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network) 2019 National School Climate Report: 86% of LGBTQ+ students were harassed or assaulted at schools; 2 in 5 LGBTQ+ students of color were bullied or harassed based on race or ethnicity; 84% of trans students felt unsafe at school because of their gender. Anti-LGBTQ discrimination means that LGBTQ+ students miss more school, have lower GPAs, and lower self-esteem. This dynamic, interactive professional learning session focuses on building your ally skills, developing welcoming and affirming learning spaces through the use of inclusive and respectful language, terminology, pronouns and discourse, assessing the physical environment for inclusivity, creating inclusive learning opportunities, and knowing where to go for resources and support. Attending this workshop is a proactive step towards creating welcoming and affirming learning spaces. Program participants will receive a Safe Zone sticker and course materials.

Audience: 5th - 8th Grade Teachers

Dates: 1/20/2022 to 2/3/2022

Have you been looking for a strategy to help your students actively engage with literature, rather than just answering surface level questions? Good readers notice when significant moments occur in a text. They interact with the reading by questioning why these moments are happening. The Notice and Note signposts were created by Kylene Beers and Robert Probst to help create attentive readers who look closely at a text and reflect on and interpret what it means to them. This workshop will introduce you to the Notice and Note Signposts for fiction AND non-fiction. Participants will be provided with examples of how to introduce the signposts to students and various techniques for using them in the classroom. Time will be provided to create your own unit using the strategies.
This is a 3-part series using the following format:
PART ONE--Introduction to 6 Notice and Note Signposts for Fiction with examples and resources.
PART TWO--Introduction to the "Three Big Questions” and Signpost Strategies for Nonfiction using examples and providing possible resources.
PART THREE--It's your turn now! This session will be used to create a unit using the Signposts for a book or nonfiction resources that you will be teaching this year. Guidance will be provided in creating the unit and resources required.
