92. Pre-Referral Considerations for ELLs - RBERN

Program: Educational Resources

Audience: All Classroom Teachers, Administrators, Teaching Assistants and Speech or Reading providers who support ELLs in elementary classrooms

Dates: 1/28/2020

A challenge faced by educators when teaching English Language Learners is knowing whether a student's academic struggle is due to the typical process of acquiring a new language or to something more intrinsic, such as a disability. When learning a new language, individuals might display certain behaviors that can be mistaken for a disability because of their similar characteristics and educators must exercise caution when making decisions about referrals for special education. This workshop will invite participants to examine the behaviors associated with new language acquisition as well as clinical markers of a disability. We will identify factors that must be considered prior to referring an ELL student for an evaluation. Educators will engage in case study discussions to consider how languages, culture, social-emotional dynamics and academics interact and impact student achievement.

93. Universal Design for Language Learners - RBERN

Program: Educational Resources

Audience: All Classroom and Content Area Teachers, Administrators, Teaching Assistants and Speech or Reading Providers who support ELLs

Dates: 1/28/2020

Educators face a unique challenge when students are culturally, linguistically and academically diverse and yet, they are expected to meet common standards. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a scientifically valid framework based on cognitive neuroscience that suggests variability within the learner is predictable and can be systematically addressed. UDL provides us with the guidelines to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all by planning instruction from the beginning that is culturally responsive and linguistically appropriate by being flexible, engaging, validating, strategic and motivating. When applied to English language learners, we can predict and create the access points students will need to succeed with a "one size fits all" curriculum and standards.

In this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Examine the Universal Design for Learning framework to see how it applies to teaching culturally and linguistically diverse learners.
- Identify the potential barriers, preferences and supports for multi-lingual learners within the content areas.
- Design instruction that takes into consideration learner variability and anticipate student needs.
- Utilize the principles of UDL to develop students that are purposeful and motivated, resourceful and knowledgeable, strategic and goal oriented learners.
- Analyze illustrations (case studies, lesson plans and classroom examples) of UDL in action for language learners and all students.

Registration/Sign-in: 12:15 pm - 12:45 pm - Lunch: On your own

94. Evaluating Science Teachers through the NYSSLS Lens

Program: Educational Resources

Audience: Teacher Lead Evaluators

Dates: 1/29/2020

New
For Teacher Lead Evaluators: The transition to the NYSSLS requires major shifts in curriculum and how it is taught. Incorporation of 3-Dimensional (3-D) teaching and learning is at the heart of this shift. Evaluators must see evidence that the new science standards are being taught through the lens of the Science and Engineering Practices and Crosscutting Concepts. In order to support administrators as they look for these shifts in classrooms, this workshop will begin with setting a foundational understanding of what constitutes 3-D teaching & learning. We will then engage in a simulation of what a 3-D science classroom look like in action through participation as "students' learning and experimenting. Finally, we will practice evaluating observable activities for indications of alignment to 3-dimensional science instruction.

95. HSPN: High School Principals' Network-Meeting 3 of 5

Program: Educational Resources

Audience: High School Principals

Dates: 1/30/2020

Being a high school principal can be an isolated position. Even though other capable administrators, teachers, and staff are part of the team, the sole authority is on you to lead your building.

Topics for learning and discussion may include; the "new" standards, revisions to ESSA, social and emotional learning, school safety, special education, graduation requirements, digital devices, social media, bullying, and specific topics of interest generated by the group. Join us to discuss these topics and others in a welcoming and supportive environment. Sign up on MLP for each meeting individually. All meetings are from 8:30 to 10:30 am at CTI Room 10. Participants will be able to *Determine topics of specific interest* *Discuss areas of success and challenge* *Build professional growth* *Collaborate with colleagues* Dutchess BOCES is an approved Sponsor of Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) pursuant to Section 80-6 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education.
