    Program: Office of School Improvement - CTLE Approved Sponsor

    Audience: K-12 Educators

    Dates: 10/5/2022

    "He is so disorganized!” "I would lose my head if it weren't on my shoulders!” "She is always late!” Any of these sound familiar? The good news is none of these skills are just who we are or just who our students are. The skills we use to learn, work, and manage life, or our executive function skills, are governed by our brain and therefore are never fixed. Executive Function skills are considered the management system of the brain. When our students struggle with executive function skills, it can make it hard for them to focus, follow directions, handle their emotions, and stay on task. Given the different learning opportunities students have experienced during the pandemic, they are ever more in need of developing their executive function skills.

    In this introductory workshop, teachers will learn:
  • background information about how different parts of the brain control different aspects of executive function
  • 10 skills that fall into the 3 main areas of executive function - working memory, cognitive flexibility, and self-control
  • strategies that will help develop student executive function skills

    What comes to mind when you hear the term "media literacy”? If you work with young children (K-5) and you don't immediately picture activities infused with joy and discovery, or if familiar lessons draw on anxieties about media harm instead of imagination and inquiry, then this workshop is custom-made for you.

    In this interactive day, longtime media literacy education innovator and author of the new book from NAEYC on Media Literacy for Young Children, Dr. Faith Rogow, will offer new ways to think about media literacy and practical strategies to integrate digital technologies without abandoning concerns about media effects.

Executive Function skills are considered the management system of the brain. When our students struggle with executive function skills, it can make it hard for them to focus, follow directions, handle their emotions, and stay on task. Given the different learning opportunities students have experienced during the pandemic, they are ever more in need of developing their executive function skills.

    In this introductory workshop, teachers will learn:
  • background information about how different parts of the brain control different aspects of executive function
  • 10 skills that fall into the 3 main areas of executive function - working memory, cognitive flexibility, and self-control
  • strategies that will help develop student executive function skills

When students feel like they belong at school, they have fewer absences, fewer disciplinary infractions, higher graduation rates, as well as increased engagement, self-esteem, and attitudes. Students with disabilities and students of different cultural backgrounds are less likely to feel like they have a positive relationship with their teacher and that their identities and abilities are valued and affirmed in school. By the end of this training, participants will: ● Understand how a welcoming and affirming learning environment improves student outcomes ● Better understand their own identities and how those identities shape their relationships and experiences ● Develop strategies for creating a welcoming and affirming learning environment ● Identify 2-3 next steps for ongoing professional learning

Are you confused by the differences between gender, expression, identity and orientation? Have you ever wondered what the letters in the LGBTQ+ initialism mean? Would you like strategies for creating more welcoming and affirming learning spaces for LGBTQ+ students, colleagues, and families? This professional learning opportunity provides the tools you need! While progress is slowly being made to create more welcoming and affirming learning spaces there is still much to be done.

Anti-LGBTQ discrimination means that LGBTQ+ students miss more school, have lower GPAs, and lower self-esteem. This dynamic, interactive professional learning session focuses on building your ally skills, developing welcoming and affirming learning spaces through the use of inclusive and respectful language, terminology, pronouns and discourse, assessing the physical environment for inclusivity, creating inclusive learning opportunities, and knowing where to go for resources and support.
