October's book: The Best I Can Be by Liz Kulp

Purpose in my Pocket is a monthly book club for special education teachers, service providers, and staff who work with individuals with differing needs. In this era of ever-changing expectation in education, it can be difficult to remember why you chose the profession you did, and also to make time for yourself. Through reading mass-market novels (memoirs, realistic fiction) from the perspective of those with special needs, and the people that assist in their care and education, Purpose in my Pocket seeks to help remind you of the passion that brought you into education, while encouraging you to take time to read, reflect, and expand your range of favorite "special needs based" literature!

Participants are asked to:

-attend the meetings they are interested in (some, or all, each meeting is independent of the others) and bring your copy of the book with you

-come to the meeting having read the book (you may attend if you have not finished it, however, we will be discussing the book in its entirety)

-be ready to answer the following 5 questions based on the text:

*Using the "thumbs scale" (thumbs up, thumb to the side, thumbs down), how would you rate this book overall?

*What feelings did this book evoke for you?

*What was your favorite quote/passage/chapter, and why?

*Did you find anything surprising, unsettling, shocking, or strange about this book, and what?

*What were your take-aways from the text/ how does this text influence your special education mindset?

Participants are also encouraged to bring journal articles, movie recommendations, and positive stories related to that month's book to share with the Club! We will also continually be collecting suggestions for titles for what we should read during the 2020-2021 school year.

Meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of every month and attendees will receive 2.0 CTLE credits for each meeting they attend.

The objective of the course is for a teacher to establish, from the first days of class, processes to effectively manage the many aspects that affect the classroom and to become/remain open-minded to the ever-evolving process of continuous improvement as a professional.

Program: Support Services: General Professional Development

Audience: K-12 Teachers and Leaders

Dates: 10/27/2019 to 11/24/2019

Location: Online

Principals and other building leaders play an essential role in ensuring that all students feel safe and supported in the school setting. Creating the right environment for all learners is critical for students to be successful, but special attention and consideration needs to be paid to our most vulnerable populations' of students. In this course, we will look specifically at the experiences of LGBTQ youth in schools. According to GLSEN's national research on the experience of LGBTQ youth, nearly 4 in 5 LGBTQ students don't see a positive representation of themselves in the curriculum and nearly 9 of 10 experience some form of harassment at school. This course will utilize much of the curriculum, research and training materials from GLSEN to help teach building leaders about the challenges LGBTQ students face in school and ways to create safer spaces for those students. In this course we will also look at national statistics related to LGBTQ students, case students, legal documentation, school and district policies as well use conversation among the members of the course to help each building leader with specific strategies for creating a safer environment for LGBTQ students in their schools.

Program: School Support Services - Library Media Services

Audience: Special education teachers, service providers, and staff

Dates: 11/12/2019

November's book: Freaks, Geeks, and Asperger's Syndrome by Luke Jackson

Purpose in my Pocket is a monthly book club for special education teachers, service providers, and staff who work with individuals with differing needs. In this era of ever-changing expectation in education, it can be difficult to remember why you chose the profession you did, and also to make time for yourself. Through reading mass-market novels (memoirs, realistic fiction) from the perspective of those with special needs, and the people that assist in their care and education, Purpose in my Pocket seeks to help remind you of the passion that brought you into education, while encouraging you to take time to read, reflect, and expand your range of favorite "special needs based" literature!

Participants are asked to:

-attend the meetings they are interested in (some, or all, each meeting is independent of the others) and bring your copy of the book with you

-come to the meeting having read the book (you may attend if you have not finished it, however, we will be discussing the book in its entirety)

-be ready to answer the following 5 questions based on the text:

*Using the "thumbs scale" (thumbs up, thumb to the side, thumbs down), how would you rate this book overall?

*What feelings did this book evoke for you?

*What was your favorite quote/passage/chapter, and why?

*Did you find anything surprising, unsettling, shocking, or strange about this book, and what?

*What were your take-aways from the text/ how does this text influence your special education mindset?

Participants are also encouraged to bring journal articles, movie recommendations, and positive stories related to that month's book to share with the Club! We will also continually be collecting suggestions for titles for what we should read during the 2020-2021 school year.

Meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of every month and attendees will receive 2.0 CTLE credits for each meeting they attend.

    Audience: Special education teachers, service providers, and staff

    Dates: 1/14/2020

    January's book: Bloom: Finding Beauty in the Unexpected by Kelle Hampton

    Purpose in my Pocket is a monthly book club for special education teachers, service providers, and staff who work with individuals with differing needs. In this era of ever-changing expectation in education, it can be difficult to remember why you chose the profession you did, and also to make time for yourself. Through reading mass-market novels (memoirs, realistic fiction) from the perspective of those with special needs, and the people that assist in their care and education, Purpose in my Pocket seeks to help remind you of the passion that brought you into education, while encouraging you to take time to read, reflect, and expand your range of favorite "special needs based" literature!

    Participants are asked to:

    -attend the meetings they are interested in (some, or all, each meeting is independent of the others) and bring your copy of the book with you

    -come to the meeting having read the book (you may attend if you have not finished it, however, we will be discussing the book in its entirety)

    -be ready to answer the following 5 questions based on the text:

    *Using the "thumbs scale" (thumbs up, thumb to the side, thumbs down), how would you rate this book overall?

    *What feelings did this book evoke for you?

    *What was your favorite quote/passage/chapter, and why?

    *Did you find anything surprising, unsettling, shocking, or strange about this book, and what?

    *What were your take-aways from the text/ how does this text influence your special education mindset?

    Participants are also encouraged to bring journal articles, movie recommendations, and positive stories related to that month's book to share with the Club! We will also continually be collecting suggestions for titles for what we should read during the 2020-2021 school year.

    Meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of every month and attendees will receive 2.0 CTLE credits for each meeting they attend.
