1. Elementary Math for High School Math Teachers

Program: Math

Audience: High School Math Teachers and Teachers Supporting High School Math

Dates: 12/20/2017

Starting Soon
Elementary math has changed over the past several years, utilizing instructional models and strategies that were new for many teachers. High school teachers will be starting to see students who have had a different base of instruction than the ones they have had in class prior to this shift. This workshop, designed for those who do not teach elementary math, will give an overview of some of the models being used and illustrate how they are meant to deepen the understanding of the math content. The intent is that this will help them support the students coming into their high school courses. Some of the models/strategies to be highlighted include Number Bonds, Number Lines and Double Number Lines, Arrays, Area Models, Tape Diagrams, Place Value Blocks/Number Disks, and more.
This session is for educators who have begun practicing mindfulness themselves and have introduced some practices to their students. Mindfulness Level Two provides an additional set of tools and a second layer of practice, beyond the basics. We will deepen our understanding of embodiment and attention lessons to support engagement and self-regulation. We will expand into practices for building community, improving communication, understanding emotions, reflecting on self, and affecting personal growth.

Mindfulness practices, which cultivate self-awareness and emotional balance, can benefit all students, especially those whose lives are challenged by adverse experiences or stressful situations.

Note: Introduction to Mindfulness is a prerequisite to this workshop, without exception.

*Please bring the book, "The Way of Mindful Education," along with the handouts from the Introduction to Mindfulness workshop. Dress comfortably, prepared for movement. Bring a towel or mat if you desire.

20. Mindfulness Level Three: Social-Emotional Learning Connection for Grades K-2

Program: Other

Audience: All Educators: Teachers, Support Staff, Administrators, Counselors

Dates: 3/1/2018

This workshop addresses the social and emotional needs of students through the practices of Mindfulness: movement, breathing, and communication. Mindfulness Level Three connects to Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Competencies: self-awareness, self-regulation, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making.

Level 3 expands our understanding of self-care and how a psychosomatic response to stress can impact learning. Participants will learn more explicit lessons to teach social-emotional competencies and a method for making practice a classroom routine for Tier I learning. The lessons and routines also provide opportunities to use Mindfulness as a Tier II intervention for those students who need additional, differentiated support.

Additionally, this level emphasizes a whole-school, common-language approach to Mindfulness. Experts in the field recommend a school-wide culture of caring and self-expression in community rather than authority or compliance-based approaches for behavior management.

Primary and Elementary offerings will include elements of play and exploration. Middle and High school practices will address goal setting and decision-making. Both will attend to the whole learner and the impact of social and emotional conditions on learning.

Note: Participants should please bring their copy of "The Way of Mindful Education" from Mindfulness Level One and their journal from Mindfulness Level Two. Wear comfortable clothing and bring a towel or mat for sitting on the floor if you like. Dress in layers.

24. Youth Mental Health First Aid

Program: Other

Audience: All Middle and High School Staff

Dates: 3/21/2018 to 3/22/2018

Youth Mental Health First Aid USA is a public education program which introduces participants to the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents, builds understanding of the importance of early intervention, and teaches individuals how to help an adolescent in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge. Mental Health First Aid uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis; select interventions and provide initial help; and connect young people to professional, peer, social, and self-help care.

What will participants learn? The course teaches participants the risk factors and warning signs of a variety of mental health challenges common among adolescents, including anxiety, depression, psychosis, eating disorders, AD/HD, disruptive behavior disorders, and substance use disorder. Participants do not learn to diagnose, nor how to provide any therapy or counseling – rather, participants learn to support a youth developing signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in an emotional crisis by applying a core five-step action plan: 1) assess for risk of suicide or harm; 2) listen non-judgmentally; 3) give reassurance and information; 4) encourage appropriate professional help; and 5) encourage self-help and other support strategies.

The Mental Health First Aid content is 8 hours. The additional time spent includes information regarding local mental health resources and time for planning.

29. Reading Intervention for Comprehension: Fluency and Vocabulary

Program: English Language Arts

Audience: Reading Teachers, Intervention Providers, AIS teachers, ELA Teachers

Dates: 5/10/2018

In a Response to Intervention (RTI) model, Tier II interventions provide some students more time and support to access grade level material (Mattos, et.al, 2012). This reading intervention is designed to follow Code Knowledge Intervention (CKI), by teaching vocabulary and fluency and scaffolding comprehension for students who struggle with ELA or content area instructional texts.

Following suit with McKenna & Stahl's (2015) pathways to comprehension framework, Lorie will provide a lesson plan to frontload comprehension skills during intervention. This intervention is designed for students who can decode (read the words of) a story or article, but still struggle to comprehend grade level text. Perhaps they have "graduated" from CKI but need additional support.

Note: Participants should bring a text (story, article, etc.) their students will read in a content area classroom during the week(s) following the workshop. We will create intervention lesson plans to go with the text.
