3. Reading and Writing Argument: Gr 6-12

Program: English Language Arts

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

Dates: 3/28/2019

Starting Soon
The ability to read and write evidence-based arguments is critical to accessing social and economic opportunities in the information age of the 21st Century.
In this workshop, participants will first deconstruct the key goals for reading and writing argument in the Next Generation ELA Standards, noting developmental progressions through the grades.
Then participants will practice working collaboratively in a content-based approach, where text-based discussion provides a supportive context for negotiating the meaning of complex texts. We will apply close-reading strategies to the analysis and evaluation of written arguments. Then we will formulate questions and compose evidence-based claims. We'll consider how explicit instruction of language structures, consistent writing routines, and scaffolds for planning and organizing can support students as they develop arguments. Sample protocols, rubrics, and planning tools will be provided.
Finally, we'll consider potential revisions to existing curricula to be ready for full Next Generation ELA implementation in the fall of 2020.

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, ADHD, disruptive behavior disorders, and substance use disorder. Participants do not learn to diagnose, nor how to provide any therapy or counseling 1/4 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.
