Habits are formed when we routinely engage in the same behaviors, respond with the same words, or perform the same actions. In a way, habits put our brains to sleep; they can take a rest from decision-making and evaluation. They serve an important purpose. At the same time, however, our brains also crave novelty. Establishing habits serves an important purpose in the classroom, but sometimes, we need to get students attention. We need their brains to be awake to understand new content or think critically. Bringing novelty into your lessons at strategic moments will pique curiosity and turn brains on! Participants in this three-hour workshop will learn what constitutes novelty in the classroom and explore a variety of ways to bring novelty into their lessons.

Reading and discussing complex text should be a major component of every classroom, in every content area, over every grade level.

Participants will consider the definition of text complexity, how it can be determined, and practice the process.

In his much-watched TED Talk, "The Puzzle of Motivation," Daniel Pink demonstrates the primacy of autonomy in human motivation. His ideas have immediate relevance in education. Inherent in providing choice is a respect for students' varying needs and interests, and respectful relationships create the foundation for a positive classroom climate. In addition, when students are expected to make choices, they exercise critical executive function skills. Participants in this three-hour workshop will learn how to use choice to improve student behavior and motivation to learn.

ALL PARTICIPANTS WILL KNOW AND BE ABLE TO:

• Describe the role of choice in the classroom

Program: Leadership Academy:Seminar Series

Audience: Members of the Leadership Academy: Seminar Series

Dates: 5/22/2017

Meeting Times: 3:30pm - 6:00pm

In order to facilitate positive cross-racial, cross-ethnic, and cross-cultural relationships, we have to acknowledge the dynamics of power and privilege.

Part of this investigation requires each of us to personally reflect on the salience of race in our own lives, including a loss or gain of societal privileges based on our individual identities. This workshop will prompt participants to investigate: 1) the impact of systemic racism in schools, 2) the salience of our staff and students' multiple identities and their attributed power and privilege, and 3) techniques for building a critical racial consciousness. Participants will leave with the tools to incorporate shared language around race, power, and privilege and with actionable steps for promoting positive racial, ethnic and cultural development through intentional relationships across diverse identities.

Meeting Times: 3:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.

Location: 301

New
As educators, we must recognize the tremendous need to increase the numbers of underrepresented youth who pursue higher education and jobs in the STEM fields. This program seeks to introduce educators to the curriculum and pedagogy issues relevant to race, language, genre and socio-economic class difference, and to apply content and pedagogy in contexts involving science and mathematics contexts for effective learning. Equitable STEM education is not only necessary in differentiated lesson design and implementation, but also in the creation of assessments through a multicultural lens. An integral part to teaching inclusively ensures that STEM instruction not only meets the needs of diverse learners, but also that assessments are created through that same multicultural lens. The value and strength of diversity in the STEM fields has become increasingly described in educational literature. ALL PARTICIPANTS WILL KNOW AND BE ABLE TO: Implement varied and effective research-based teaching and assessment strategies that align with learning styles, Ensure that all students are in a learning environment that encourages them to participate fully in class discussions and science activities Science teachers, administrators, and community members must select only those curriculum materials that promote gender inclusiveness, and those curriculum materials that present culturally diverse male and female role models working in all disciplines and at all levels TOPICS INCLUDE:
•How do we support students’ cultural border crossing?
•Students learn to code switch in order to be successful in science. We can support their cultural needs
•Share stories of scientists
