1. Write Now!!!

Program: Professional Development

Audience: K-12 Teachers, Teacher Leaders, Instructional Coaches, and Department Chairs

Dates: 10/17/2019 to 12/17/2019

3 day series
Why don't our students want to write? How confident do we feel as writers and teachers of writing? The Next Generation Learning Standards for ELA remind us of the high expectations for student writing at every grade level, but how do we help our students meet those expectations? During our time together, we will explore the research behind learning to write and use this knowledge to develop new and engaging approaches. Throughout the three days, we will engage in writing, reflect upon the process, and really put ourselves in the shoes of the students. We will use the work of Gallagher, Atwell, Fletcher, Culham, Calkins and others. Let's be fearless about writing so we can teach our students to do the same.

Please bring a laptop, earbuds and an upcoming unit.

Program: Professional Development

Audience: SLPs, Teachers, Paraprofessionals using AAC

Dates: 3/2/2020

Model as a MASTER PAL is a series of training modules developed by Tabi Jones-Wohleber. According to Tabi, "Model as a MASTER PAL" was developed to help shape behaviors and belief systems of communication partners supporting individuals who use AAC. It was developed from the premise that:

1. AAC implementation is not intuitive 2. communication is not compliance.

This training series assumes topics related to core vocabulary instruction and explicit creation of communication opportunities have already been covered, and communication partners require additional information to improve the effectiveness of implementation.

The structure of this training series lends itself to delivery over time for ongoing discussion and support related to AAC implementation. It emphasizes that modeling language with AAC is the communication partners responsibility (full stop!

This workshop will cover the following topics: Time, (Wait Time, Think Time, and Time for Language to Develop), Engage Naturally, Response Not Required, and Presume Potential.
