Location: A-14

Starting Soon
John Hattie (2012) suggests that many students need different teaching strategies from those that they have been getting. We know that learner's readiness, abilities, and needs can be 'all over the map'. As teachers, we need to be able to identify and address each learner's individual needs, as well as have students take ownership of their own learning.

Visible Learning for Mathematics (Hattie, Fisher, & Frey, 2012) will deepen our understanding around how to use the right approach at the right time, in order to help more intentionally design classroom experiences that hit the surface, deep, and transfer phases of learning.
Additionally, Jo Boaler's Mathematical Mindsets (2016) will provide information, techniques, and tasks that aim to help all children believe in their mathematics potential.

Learning outcomes include:
+ Discover how to build successful relationships with students, critical to long-term student gains;
+ Understand learning intentions and success criteria and why they are critical to student growth;
+ Explore the three phases of learning -- surface, deep, and transfer;
+ Examine key approaches that work best at each phase of learning and apply these to lesson planning;
+ Implement strategies that support the development of a growth mindset.

*Ongoing, classroom embedded support and feedback will be provided*

12. THE LADDER OF PREJUDICE: FROM NAME CALLING TO GENOCIDE

Program: School Improvement Services (COSER 505)

Audience: K-12 teachers and administrators

Dates: 12/6/2017

Meeting Times: 4:00PM-6:00PM

Location: Tioga Training Room

How can educators and students promote tolerance in our society? In his book, The Nature of Prejudice, Gordon W. Allport uses the metaphor of a ladder to describe how "little acts," which often go unnoticed, can lead to more serious and disruptive individual and collective behaviors, by both perpetrators and victims. This framework describes, in ascending order, five "rungs" of intolerance and injustice: speech, avoidance, discrimination, physical attack, extermination.

In this workshop educators will have opportunity to apply the Ladder of Prejudice to grade-specific content and help students identify parallels in their lives and current events. We will identify examples of intolerant behaviors from our own experiences as well as those involving students, parents, community leaders, the media, and "high profile" persons in political and popular culture. Participants then identify ways to facilitate safe discussions about these experiences and promote tolerance in our - and our students' - everyday lives.

Additionally, Jo Boaler's Mathematical Mindsets (2016) will provide information, techniques, and tasks that aim to help all children believe in their mathematics potential.

Learning outcomes include:
+ Discover how to build successful relationships with students, critical to long-term student gains;
+ Understand learning intentions and success criteria and why they are critical to student growth;
+ Explore the three phases of learning -- surface, deep, and transfer;
+ Examine key approaches that work best at each phase of learning and apply these to lesson planning;
+ Implement strategies that support the development of a growth mindset.
