How can we support those students and families? How can we continue to provide learning opportunities that are still grounded in best practice as much as possible?

Program: Literacy Programs

Audience: Educators PK-12; Support Staff; TA's,

NewStarting Soon
Description from the ASCD book cover: "We all want our students to feel safe, collaborate well with others, feel ownership for their learning, and be joyfully engaged in their work. Nevertheless, many teachers end up using language patterns that undermine these goals.

What teachers say to students-when they praise or discipline, give directions or ask questions, and introduce concepts or share stories-affects student learning and behavior. A slight change in intonation can also dramatically change how language feels for students. In What We Say and How We Say It Matter, Mike Anderson digs into the nuances of language in the classroom. This book's many examples will help teachers examine their language habits and intentionally improve their classroom practice so their language matches and supports their goals."

This book study will last for six weeks starting April 3rd and ending May 6th. Chapters will be assigned each week and reading responses will be due each Wednesday.

The eBook is available for free for OCM BOCES Component districts on OCM BOCES - School Library System's Website: http://www.ocmboces.org/sls

1. Attending all three meetings during the year. Our focus of study for the year will build on our previous work including developing historical thinking skills through analysis of primary sources and best practices for supporting students in reading, writing and discussion of historical content.

2. Come prepared for the meeting by completing any personal learning required by the facilitator of this group.

3. Being responsible for working with your team to bring the learning from the meeting back to your district.

4. Being designated or gaining approval by your district to participate in this group.

The formal meeting will occur in the morning. However, your district may ask your team to use the afternoon to develop a plan for implementing the learning from the meeting in your district. If your district asks this of you, the meeting space will be available in the afternoon for use by those who wish to stay and work.

93. Battling Inequity and Disproportionality in P3 Student Discipline Practices

Program: Consultant Support Services

Audience: Administrators, School Psychologists, Social Workers, Related Service Providers, Special Education Teachers, General Education Teachers, Paraprofessionals (PreK-3rd Grade)

Dates: 6/11/2020

Data from the U.S. Department of Education Office of Civil Rights show that suspension and expulsion continue to be used extensively in our school environments, with gender and racial disparities in their implementation. Exclusionary discipline practices such as suspensions and expulsions deprive children of valuable learning experiences and teach them to believe that there is something wrong or bad about them. Many studies have found that children who are expelled or suspended are more likely to experience academic failure and grade retention, experience negative attitudes toward school, drop out of high school, and face juvenile incarceration than those who are not. This full-day training will allow participants to take a deeper dive into the link between culture, implicit bias, and educational impact as well as learn and discuss culturally responsive practices and how we can begin to address disproportionality in our early learning discipline practices.

Participants will have an hour lunch break and are asked to bring or obtain lunch on their own.

PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
