Dates: 1/23/2017 to 2/15/2017

Come join us for an American Sign Language workshop for educators through videoconferencing. All you need to connect will be a computer and a web camera or a videoconferencing device. ASL is not only for special education teachers, no matter who the students are, an educator and their students can benefit greatly from learning ASL. From early education all the way to post-secondary, knowing the basics of ASL will enhance every teacher's ability to communicate with their students. As a teacher you will have students in your classroom with varying learning and communication styles. Your ability to communicate with every student is a win-win for everyone! Learning ASL will open up a world of communication with people that you may never have had the skill or opportunity to interact with. By sharing your knowledge of ASL with your students you will be promoting awareness and acceptance of diversity in our community and world. Some of the topics that will be taught will be: ABC's, Colors, Family, #s 1-10,Common Objects, Foods, Teacher /School/Classroom signs, and much more! The last session will conclude with presentations from participants. Format : Vocabulary will be introduced, then practiced in context using a functional-notational approach. The functional-notational approach is a way of structuring activities around "notions," real-life situations in which people communicate, which are further broken down into "functions," specific aims of communication. (Participants will practice the language one on one, and in groups through a variety of formats including partner activities, games, technology) For more information - check out the webpage at http://itd.cnyric.org/teacherpage.cfm?teacher=1520

Response to Intervention: RTI is not a series of implementation steps to cross off on a list, but a way of thinking about how educators can ensure each student receives the time and support needed to achieve success. This workshop was developed for school teams who have started RTI but are still refining processes or experiencing challenges. The presenters have worked with hundreds of schools throughout North America and can help your school make RTI efficient, effective, and equitable. RTI work must be divided between collaborative teacher teams and two schoolwide teams (a leadership team and an intervention team). Together, the entire school assumes responsibility for the learning of every student.

Learn why bureaucratic, paperwork-heavy, compliance-oriented, test-score-driven approaches fail and then learn how to create an RTI model that works. Acquire four essential guiding principles; collective responsibility, concentrated instruction, convergent assessment and certain access, and experience a simple process for bringing these principles to life in your school.

Days 1 and 2 are a hybrid event--- Solution Tree's RTI at Work multiple sessions will be shared via use of technology with an on-site facilitator. Days 3 and 4 are direct profesional development days for Dennis King to work directly with teams to develop and refine their work Dennis King has led secondary level schools through implementation of solid RTI.

Teams from secondary levels are especially encouraged to attend.

Cost is $200/participant for component schools and $300/participant for non-component schools inclusive of all 4 days, lunch and resource text. Cancellations must be made before 2/17/2017 or district will be charged the full amount. Substitutions will be permitted.
