Program: 2018-2019 - Instructional Best Practices - INSTR

Audience: 9-12 ELA Teachers and Department Leaders

Dates: 10/22/2018

Starting Soon
We live in a world that is incredibly rich in differences—differences in the way we look, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, and the ways we learn. Now more than ever, it is of the utmost importance that we teach children the value of tolerance. Our schools need to be stewards of tolerance because it is a fundamental ingredient to create safe and accepting environments. Schools need to help instill a sense of appreciation for all forms of cultural expression and learning. To this end, secondary ELA teachers and department leaders need tools for enculturating these beliefs and overcoming barriers that impede those beliefs when they arise. One of the most effective approaches to conquering intolerance and stereotypes is to build a culture of empathy and celebrate differences. This workshop will provide educators with opportunities to experience model lessons and explore literary/media resources that can help them dismantle stereotypes and build a more culturally responsive and accepting school community.

Audience: All Teachers, Administrators, School Psychologists, Speech Teachers, and Educators of English Language Learners At-Risk 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.

In this practical workshop, you will learn mindfulness tools to help your students increase their focus and attention skills, develop social and emotional skills, and reduce stress and anxiety. You will walk away with a clear understanding of the importance of mindfulness and lessons to add to your mindfulness “tool kit” for your classroom. The next time you say “pay attention” to your student, you will have a better understanding of what you are asking them to do and how you can help them be successful in the classroom.
Using principles, derived from modern brain research, the workshop will focus on how to strengthen a teacher’s social and emotional capacities by equipping participants with mindfulness practices that can help regulate emotions, increase compassion, and cultivate inner resilience

61. Removing the Blindfold: How to Use Classroom Data to Set Goals and Monitor Student Progress

Program: 2018-2019 - Instructional Best Practices - INSTR

Audience: 3-12 General, special-educators, administrators; psychologists, social workers; counselors; RTI Coordinators

Dates: 11/7/2018

Teachers must know how to collect meaningful data on academic performance or behavior to judge in real time whether a struggling student is making appropriate classroom progress. Educators use formative student data every day to make decisions about instruction and intervention and to communicate with stakeholders such as parents, MTSS Teams, and the Committee on Special Education (CSE). This workshop demystifies the often-confusing question of how to collect and interpret classroom progress-monitoring data. It is designed for general- and special-education teachers, educational consultants, and school administrators in grades 3-12 who wish to expand their skills in collecting student data to document Response-to-Intervention or IEP growth.

Participants will learn how to:

• Develop SMART student goals

• Employ a toolkit of classroom-friendly methods for data collection

• Ensure that any classroom data-collection plan includes these essential elements: (1) define the problem clearly; (2) collect baseline; (3) establish an outcome/exit goal; (4) adopt a plan for regular data collection

• Locate research norms or develop classwide peer norms for use as a normative standard to evaluate a student's progress

• Set clear multi-week performance goals against which to judge the success of any student's academic or behavioral intervention plan
