3. Embedding SEL Schoolwide (TRLE Topic 2 Turnkey Session)

Program: School Improvement

Dates: 4/13/2021

Starting Soon
The key to a successful schoolwide approach is to engrain the principles of SEL throughout every aspect of school life-from the agenda at staff meetings to the posters on the walls and, most importantly, the interactions between adults and students hybrid and remotely. This session will explore several key factors that contribute to effective, large-scale implementation of SEL. Participants will be offered lessons from the field and invited to analyze district case studies to determine a range of possible approaches and to consider what they can take away for their own context as they begin to plan or continue implementation of SEL schoolwide.

6. Book Study: The Teenage Brain

Program: School Improvement

Audience: Secondary educators

Dates: 4/27/2021 to 6/3/2021

Written for parents and educators, Frances E. Jensen, MD explores the adolescent brain function and development in the context of learning and multitasking, stress and memory, sleep, addiction, and decision making. She helps readers to understand the adolescent brain is not an adult one, but encompasses vitally important stages of brain development that can directly influence how we engage with youth. Through a jigsaw-based approach to reading, participants will engage in reading selected parts of the book as a large group and hold responsibility for reading and sharing out summaries of an individually read chapter(s). A 20 minute informational meeting will be held virtually on 4/6/21, at 3:30pm, to establish a reading schedule and to review expectations. A link will be emailed to join the virtual informational meeting to those registered on and before that date. Participants will be responsible for securing their own copy of the text.

7. Book Chat: Aware: The Science and Practice of Presence by Dan Siegel

Program: School Improvement

Dates: 5/3/2021 to 6/28/2021

Have you been curious about meditation, but your skepticism requires more information before "buying it”? Or, maybe you are simply geeky like me and love to soak up the science to understand something more deeply? Either way, you might find Dan Siegel's book AWARE is just the kind of book that might intrigue you. AWARE provides practical instruction for applying Siegel's Wheel of Awareness tool as a way for cultivating more focus, presence and peace in your day to day life. Who doesn't need that?? We will explore the principle "Where attention goes, neural firing flows and neural connections grow.” And the scientific findings are in - your mind can change the health of your body, guide intention toward kindness and caring, and bring about emotional balance and resilience in the face of challenges. It seems this might be helpful these days! Join me for this book chat as we wrap up the school year. This read will equip you to explore the practice of meditation and resilience building more deeply over the summer, supported by additional offerings through CiTi or on your own. We will have a brief organizational call on May 3rd (20 minutes) to review some ground rules and reading schedule. A zoom link for this call and the book chat sessions will be sent at the end of April. **participants are responsible for purchasing their own copy of this book.**

This summer journey will invite the participant to come with a journal, a pen that glides across the page and a copy of Natalie Goldberg's Writing Down the Bones. This is not just about writing practice, whether you want to be a writer or just a casual scribbler. It is also a way to view writing as study of the mind, as self-discovery and a Zen-like activity. All of this can lead to greater self-awareness, insight and resilience. We will gather on Zoom once a week for 6 weeks for 90 minutes. During this time we will discuss sections of the book Writing Down the Bones, engage in timed writing practice and read without comment or feedback. Don't be intimated by this last point - trust me, it is important. **participants must purchase their own copy of Writing Down the Bones

14. What We Say and How We Say it Matter: Teacher Talk That Improves Student Learning and Behavior

Program: School Improvement

Audience: All those who interact with students

Dates: 7/14/2021 to 8/4/2021

Book Study Opportunity: We all want our students to feel safe, collaborate well with others, feel ownership for their learning, and be joyfully engaged in their work. What teachers say to students--when they praise or discipline, give directions or ask questions, and introduce concepts or share stories--all affects student learning and behavior. A slight change in intonation can also dramatically change how language feels for students. Join me for a jigsaw style book study to explore the many examples provided by the author Mike Anderson. An informational meeting will be held on 7/12/21 at 9:00am via Zoom, to discuss meeting protocols. All participants are responsible for gaining access to their copy of the book to bring to our meetings.
