Program: Instructional Strategies

Audience: K-8 Teachers, Math teachers, AIS Providers, Special Ed Teachers, Administrators

Dates: 2/1/2022 to 2/2/2022

In this PD, Teachers will be learning about Jon Sangiovanni's 6 Point Action Plan for Fostering Perseverance. Now Virtual! Struggle is hard. Productive struggle is power. All students face struggle, and they should-it is how they learn and grow. The teacher's job is not to remove struggle, but rather to value and harness it, helping students develop good habits of productive struggle. But what's missing for many educators is an action plan for how to achieve this, especially when it comes to math. Persevering through difficult challenges to reach new learning is the core of Productive Math Struggle. When left unsupported, struggle can become unproductive and demoralizing, negatively influencing students' mathematical identities. Through Jon's book I will help guide teachers through six specific actions-including valuing, fostering, building, planning, supporting, and reflecting on struggle-to create a game plan for overcoming obstacles by sharing

• Actionable steps, activities, and tools for implementation

• Instructional tasks and vignettes representative of each grade level

• Real-world examples showcasing classroom photos and student work samples Revolving around the idea that math is a way of thinking and understanding, and not just the pursuit of answers and procedures, this idea empowers students to embrace productive struggle to build essential skills for learning and living-both inside and outside the classroom.

As an educator you have the power to make a profound impact in the lives of your students. It's what keeps us going. But schools are stressful places. Regardless of where you teach, it is emotional work. When demands outpace our ability to cope, healthy stress is replaced by toxic stress. Toxic stress results in decreased productivity, anxiety, frustration, and burnout. Nearly half a million teachers leave the profession every year! Throughout this year we will work together to discuss and build habits to cultivate resiliency and our ability to not just survive, but thrive. This opportunity is less like a book club and more like a year long journey toward understanding who you are as an educator, support staff, or administrator. Each month's topic will relate to the common stresses and situations occurring in schools during that time of the year. (This listing is for Session 1. You need to register for 2 listings, Session 1 and Session 2-12.) **** This offering requires the purchase of the book "Onward: Cultivating Emotional Resilience in Educators", by Elena Aguilar**** It can be purchased online and inexpensively as a used book on Amazon
