Audience: ENL Teachers, Content and General Education Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Building Leaders, Curriculum Administrators

Dates: 5/26/2020 to 6/8/2020

ClosedStarting Soon
Learning has shifted from schools to homes and the modality of instruction, for most, is transitioning from face-to-face to online. These transitions are happening simultaneously with many families making similar shifts in their professional lives.

Family engagement should encourage and empower families to be their own champions. As a community, we need to work toward goals that focus on specific family strengths, resources, and needs.

As families work through the challenges of making these transitions, educators must use best practices for family engagement in order to provide emotional and technical support, compassion, and encouragement as they partner on facilitating learning in the home.

This workshop will provide actionable steps educators can take to foster and build upon a school-to-home partnership.

The estimated amount of time needed to complete this module is approximately 3 hours. You may stop at any time and resume it at any time.

Course Start Date: Tuesday, May 26, 2020
Course End Date: Monday, June 8, 2020

    This workshop will present frameworks and instructional strategies for literacy engagement for secondary (7-12) students, especially ELLs. Research on exemplary literacy practices, including approaches developed and implemented in the Hudson Valley, demonstrates that students benefit from opportunities to use language critically, in multiple contexts, in different modalities (reading, writing, listening and speaking), and through the lenses of their culture and identity and those of others. Therefore, this hands-on workshop will:

    1) explore critical and culturally responsive literacy frameworks
    2) examine instructional practices that promote cross-cultural understanding and critical discussions among students, while empowering them to take transformative civic action

    Concepts, themes, and theories in this workshop include culture and acculturation, identity texts, racial literacy, and critically informed civic engagement as presented in the works of James Banks, Gloria Ladson-Billings, Jim Cummins and James Baldwin, among others.

    10. NEW DATES: May 29, 2020 & June 5, 2020 Beyond Behavior Charts and Reward Systems VIA ZOOM

    Program: 2019-2020 - Special Education

    Audience: K-12 general education and special education teachers Deans School counselors Paraprofessionals Assistant Principals Behavior Specialists

    Dates: 5/29/2020

    Wait ListStarting Soon
    THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE SPLIT INTO TWO 3 HOURS SESSIONS: MAY 29, 2020 AND JUNE 5, 2020, 9AM-12PM EACH DAY.

    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.

    This program may be used to meet 5.5 hours toward CTLE requirements. Check with your district for eligibility.

    Fee:
    $190 per participant for CoSer 555 members

    Program: LHRIC - Instructional Technology (Model Schools Courses)

    Dates: 7/13/2020

In this workshop, you will learn how to create your own Digital Breakout based on your own curriculum. Digital breakouts may take some time and thought to create, but once you have done the legwork, they can be used over and over with students. They provide the same engaged learning experience for students that traditional Breakouts involve: critical thinking, teamwork and complex problem solving. Come with a colleague and create a Digital Breakout together!
