What really counts to move along the proficiency continuum? Unpack the major levels of proficiency by closely examining the NCSSFL-ACTFL Can-Do Statements organized by the three Modes of Communication and Intercultural Communication to fill in the "how well" to guide learners forward.

    27. [HVRBERN-CTLE ID #23120] Pre-Referral Considerations for ELLs - at Orange-Ulster BOCES

    Program: 2019-2020 - HV-RBE-RN

    TO REGISTER FOR THIS WORKSHOP, PLEASE USE THE FOLLOWING LINK TO ENROLL AT ORANGE-ULSTER BOCES' SITE: CLICK HERE TO ENROLL

    Educators teaching English Language Learners have the responsibility to ensure access to the most effective and appropriate learning environment. When an ELL student is struggling academically, educators need to understand the multiple and complex factors affecting a student's learning. Student behaviors observed may appear similar to characteristics of a disability and educators need to carefully rule out all factors that are not intrinsic to the individual. It is challenging to distinguish if language acquisition, cultural and linguistic diversity, gaps in learning or an actual disorder is at play. A multidisciplinary team must investigate, paying special attention to contexts and rule out systemic or external factors prior to making a referral.

    In this workshop, participants will examine factors that must be considered when a student is at risk for referral to special education:
    - What are the legal requirements of serving English Language Leaners?
    - Who has knowledge of the process of second language acquisition and the linguistic background and history of the student?
    - How does the quality of current classroom instruction and prior schooling experiences impact student performance?
    - Are cultural dynamics or social-emotional resilience influencing interactions?
    - How are interventions and assessments being utilized in decision making?
    - What are the clinical markers of a disability and is there a deficit in the home language?

    Registration/Sign-in: 8:00 am - 8:30 am

    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.

    We often don't know what to do with students who exhibit challenging behavior. Behavior modification systems assume that the student requires motivation in order to change his/her behavior. That they can change their behavior if they only wanted to. However, 50 years of neuro-scientific research suggests that these challenging behaviors are actually due to specific neuro-cognitive skill deficits which can be taught.

    Spend the day learning and practicing an evidence-based method effective in changing challenging behavior and actually rewiring the brain to build the missing cognitive skills causing the behavior. You will learn how to assess for the missing skills and how to collaborate with the student in order to solve the problem behavior. This strategy has been successful with Elementary, Middle and High School Students.

    Workshop 3 Title: Designing Effective Units of Instruction

    Description: How can I focus each unit to effectively develop and assess learners' performance? Using the principles of backward design (UbD), plan one unit of instruction: identify the goals (from Standards and Can-Do Statements), determine acceptable evidence (design assessment of each Mode of Communication), and plan the instruction (what learners need to know and be able to do). The heart of the unit design is envisioning what success looks like as you create the assessments for the end of a unit of instruction. Integrate the assessment of the three Modes of Communication and measure growth in what learners can do with what they know. Build your repertoire for the effective design of tasks in the three Modes of Communication targeting Novice, Intermediate, or Advanced levels of proficiency.
