25. Teaching Media Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom

Program: CPE Credit Courses

Dates: 10/4/2021 to 11/13/2021

Meeting Times: Online

Online Course
Students are exposed to a variety of media throughout the day. Media is an influential force in the lives of students. Television, radio, computers, internet, social media, streaming, video games and smartphones are just a few examples of the media that students interact with daily. However, when it comes to being able to recognize real news versus a fake news article that might appear on their feed, the majority of students cannot tell the difference. Educators have a responsibility to teach students how to critically engage with mass media. In order to be an informed citizen, students must know how to access, analyze, evaluate, create and act using all forms of media. It is imperative that students possess these skills so that they can make informed decisions as adults. During this three-credit online course, participants will come to understand what media literacy skills are, their importance in the classroom, how to integrate media literacy skills and design lessons and activities that will help students to become media literate.

Anxiety & Stress: Teacher and Student Wellness is a course that guides participants in developing and implementing classroom strategies that cultivate teacher and student well-being. The ways in which teachers and students react to anxiety and stress will determine the growth (or lack thereof) and experiences in the classroom each day. Mental health is of great concern in the classroom (and the world) as educational, financial, social, mental and emotional pressures can seem overwhelming at times. Teacher and student well-being must first be addressed before teaching and learning can take place. Participants will explore curricula for how to best deal with their students' anxiety and stress in the classroom. Participants will also explore scientific research, best practices and the holistic education of the mind and body that we strive to provide our 21st century students. Both teacher and student must maintain a level of self-care and awareness in order to make great academic and personal strides. Participants will develop an action plan to acknowledge and address anxiety and stressors in the classroom so that calmness, awareness, insightfulness and presence are established and academic goals can be met.

Required Text: Participants will need to purchase the interactive textbook (digital or paper) titled Stress Management for Teachers A ProActive Guide by Herman and Reinke, ISBN-13: 978-1462517985

Program: Countywide Inservice

Audience: School nurses

Dates: 11/2/2021

Meeting Times: 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM; Room opens at 7:50 AM

The need for fair and equitable assessment of intelligence has become increasingly important. Unfortunately, the tests we have been taught to use have fundamental problems that make the need for an evolutionary change more salient. There are several fundamental problems.

- Nearly all intelligence tests have similar content.
- Their content includes questions dependent upon knowledge.
- Although attempts have been made to attach theories to them, they remain largely atheoretical.
- Without a sound theory base, interpretation of test scores is highly speculative.
- Researchers have found that intelligence tests have a problem with equity and interpretation beyond the total score.

All of these issues, and others, make it difficult for school psychologists to conduct equitable assessments of intelligence and learning problems. All of these limitations can be addressed.

In this session a close explanation of the problems associated with traditional intelligence tests will be examined solutions provided; there are viable options. The key is to equitable assessment of intelligence is to use a test that measures the way students THINK to LEARN. The definition of THINKING should be based on BRAIN function. The Planning, Attention, Simultaneous and Successive (PASS) theory will be fully described. This way of defining THINKING (i.e., intelligence), which is measured using and the Cognitive Assessment System-2nd Edition and the research on the validity of this approach closely examined and fully described.

Participants will be able to identify what is and isn't a trauma-informed restorative practice.
Participants will be able to implement universal standard precautions for trauma-sensitive schools.
Participants will explore a shared language for talking about trauma-informed principles in the context of school culture.

Program: Countywide Inservice

Audience: Educators of EL Students

Dates: 11/2/2021

Meeting Times: 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM; Room opens at 7:50 AM

Implications for Chester County's Undocumented and Unaccompanied Immigrant Children

Facilitated by Lindsey Sweet, founding partner of Sweet & Paciorek, LLC, a Chester County immigration and nationality law firm.

Note: This session has been updated to reflect changes in the law now that there is a new administration.

While the United States Immigration laws passed by Congress have not undergone an overhaul in almost 20 years, the policies of what undocumented immigrants are, who should be detained by ICE, who constitutes an asylum seeker, and who is likely to become a public charge have all changed drastically over the past 3 years. These shifts in policy have had dramatic effects on both undocumented and documented immigrant children and their families.

This session will bring you up to speed on the most current legal landscape for Chester County's immigrant families by answering some of the pressing questions educators may have:
- What immigration options are still available for undocumented children and families to obtain lawful status in the United States?
- My student says that he/she is seeking asylum-what does that mean?
- What happens if one of my student's parents is detained during the school day?
- What is the public charge rule and who does it apply to?

A native of Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, Lindsey has also lived and studied in Veracruz, Mexico. After graduating from Haverford College, Lindsey worked with the Pennsylvania Migrant Education Program for 4 years where she provided supplemental education to the children of migrant farmworkers in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Since 2006, Lindsey has worked defending immigrant legal rights and has been licensed to practice law in the states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey since 2009.
