Let's leverage our experiences in emergency distance learning and consider how to best support student math learning now and-as needed-in the fall.

We will consider how to make live learning meaningful and plan lessons which students can complete on their own time. We will explore a model of lesson planning which can support live virtual teaching, in-person classroom instruction, and distance learning on a student's schedule.

Participants will need to spend approximately 2 hours per week on this class to be successful. Three hours are asynchronous and one hour is either synchronous or synchronous. We will meet June 9 from 12:45-1:45 pm. An asynchronous alternative to this live session will be available for any participant who needs this option.

Participants will engage in the following online learning modules:

Week 1: Welcome To Online Professional Development (1 hour synchronous, 1 hour asynchronous)
Week 2: Preparing Asynchronous Lessons (2 hours asynchronous)
CTLE: 4 hours upon successful completion of online learning

29. Values-led and Evidence-informed Education: The Social Aspects of Learning

Program: Professional Development

Audience: All Educators

Dates: 6/8/2020

New
The excitement of learning and the process of learning are as critical as the outcomes. How do you make schools inviting places for learning? John Hattie wants teachers to focus on what goes on in the classroom, and try to retain students' interest in their love of learning. His overall message for teachers is: Know your impact. In order to do that, the data itself is not the most important thing. It is better to think about the story underlying the data. John Hattie's engaging keynote will cover the passion, challenge, excellence and the social aspects of learning.

Mr. Hattie's keynote will be from 4:00-5:10 with 20 minutes for Q&A. Participants will then be invited to join a virtual debrief meeting to discuss more in depth the conversations and take-aways from the keynote. There will be two options to attend this debrief - immediately following Hattie's Keynote (June 8th from 5:30-6:00) or the following day, June 9th from 2:00-2:30. Zoom invitations for both debrief options will be sent out to all registered participants, no extra registration/approval is needed.

36. Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Schools

Program: Professional Development

Audience: This course is designed for School Personnel

Dates: 6/29/2020 to 7/2/2020

Cornell University developed the Therapeutic Crisis Intervention (TCI) model for residential care as part of its Residential Child Care Project in the early 1980's. The foundations of this curriculum are in research based literature and programs. In 2007 Cornell responded to requests from various Board of Cooperative Education (BOCES) Centers and other public schools and adapted the TCI curriculum to meet the needs of schools. Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Schools (TCIS) gives WFL BOCES a framework for implementing a crisis prevention and management system that reduces the need to rely on high-risk interventions, complements the Response to Intervention (RTI) approach and includes aspects of trauma informed care.

There are three main competencies taught in the TCIS Training:

Competency 1: Prevent and de-escalate potential crises with students
Competency 2: Safely and therapeutically manage crisis situations
Competency 3: Be able to process with students to help improve their coping skills

There are three levels of certification:

Level 1: Verbal de-escalation skills including the Life Space Interview (initial training of 21 hours)
Level 2: Verbal de-escalation, LSI and TCIS protectives (initial training of 24 hours)
Level 3: Verbal techniques, protectives and physical restraint techniques (initial training of 28 hours)

This training will certify verbal de-escalation skills including the LSI and TCIS protectives and physical restraints.
