Program: Teacher Center Catalog

Audience: Teachers, Assistants, Administrators

Dates: 1/16/2023

The Zones of Regulation is the original framework and curriculum (Kuypers, 2011) that develops awareness of feelings, energy, and alertness levels while exploring a variety of tools and strategies for regulation, prosocial skills, self-care, and overall wellness. This curriculum provides us with an easy way to think and talk about how we feel on the inside and sort these feelings into four colored Zones, all of which are expected in life. Once we understand our feelings and zones, we can learn to use tools/strategies to manage our different Zones in order to meet goals like doing schoolwork or other tasks, managing big feelings, and have healthy relationships with others. The simple, common language and visual structure of The Zones of Regulation helps make the complex skill of regulation more concrete for learners and those who support them.

32. The Science of Reading Series: Teaching with Decodable Texts

Program: School Improvement

Audience: Grades PreK-12 Teachers, Reading Specialists, Instructional Coaches, Teacher Leaders and Administrators

Dates: 2/1/2023

Asynchronous
Closed
This asynchronous session will examine the critical role decodable text plays in early phonics instruction. Research tells us that when students are still in the decoding stages of reading, they benefit from applying newly acquired phonics skills to controlled, decodable texts. This allows students to develop a sense of comfort in, and control over, their reading growth; as a result, decodable texts should be a key learning tool in early phonics instruction (Blevins, 2017). Participants will examine the current research around decodable texts and what separates strong from weak texts. This asynchronous session will also discuss ways to extend the use of decodable texts to build phonics fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary.

Participants will receive the asynchronous content prior to February 1, 2023, and will have until March 31, 2023 to complete the session.

38. Refreshing the Canon

Program: School Library System

Audience: School Librarians

Dates: 2/7/2023

Starting Today
Libraries are constantly assessing their collections, making decisions about what to purchase and what to weed. One of the hardest decisions often revolves around "classic" titles that haven't aged well. School Library Journal refers to this process as Refreshing the Canon. How can we analyze and evaluate these titles to be sure they contain respectful representations? Is there a time to weed these titles or should they remain in our collections due to their historical significance? Bring a book that you would like to reevaluate. If you don't have one, we will provide some options. Join us for an interactive discussion of this topic. Note: If you participated in the summer 2022 cohort of the Collection Development workshop, this will largely be a repeat. You're welcome to join us for this discussion again if interested. This workshop is open to pre-K through 12 school librarians.

47. ChatGPT3 Wrote this Workshop

Program: Model Schools

Audience: Administrators, Curriculum, Teachers

Dates: 2/15/2023

New
ChatGPT and other artificial intelligence (AI) interfaces have been making news recently thanks to some revolutionary breakthroughs in the technology. Of particular concern for schools is the ability of ChatGPT to write coherent essays on any given topic. In response, some systems are electing to block access to ChatGPT in a misguided attempt to prevent student access. A more reasoned response would be to develop an understanding of the technology and how it could be used to assist with teaching and learning. It is also critical for us to understand how the rise of sophisticated AI like ChatGPT will likely impact the future of work. This workshop will introduce AIs, demonstrate their capabilities, and provide an opportunity for best practice discussions about the role of AI in education.

50. Scaffolds for Writing: Providing Assistance for Those Who Need It at the Appropriate Time

Program: School Improvement

Audience: Grades PreK-12 Teachers, Teacher Leaders, Instructional Coaches, and Administrators

Dates: 3/1/2023

Asynchronous
Kellogg and Whiteford (2009) argue that "The advancement of writing skills from beginner to advanced levels depends on the availability of adequate working memory resources and the capacity to allocate them appropriately to planning, sentence generation, and reviewing” (p. 256). The authors point out two critical concepts here: writing skills are on a continuum (beginner to advanced) and writing is complex (adeptly juggling working and long-term memory to attend to the writing process). This professional learning session focuses on writing scaffolds, taught within direct, explicit instruction, as strategies employed to advance writers along the continuum, from novice to expert, resulting in writing skills being captured in the three phases of learning: encoding, storage, and retrieval (Agarwal & Bain, 2019).

The asynchronous content will be sent to registered participants on the day of the session. Participants will have from March 1st to March 31st to complete all requirements to earn session credit.

54. TCIS: Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Schools (Levels I & II)

Program: Special Education

Audience: Grades K-12 Paraprofessionals, General and Special Education Teachers, School Counselors, School Administrators, and School Psychologist

Dates: 3/9/2023 to 3/24/2023

Wait List
The Therapeutic Crisis Intervention for Schools (TCIS) training program for child and youth care staff presents a framework for implementing a crisis and management system that reduces the need to rely on high-risk interventions. The TCI framework complements the Response to Intervention (RTI) approach and also includes aspects of trauma-informed care. Staff who are trained in the TCI program are provided a crisis prevention and intervention model designed to teach staff how to help children learn constructive ways to proactively diminish crisis and also support students and staff to react to a crisis. The skills, knowledge, and professional judgment of staff in responding to crises are critical factors in helping young people learn constructive and adaptive ways to deal with frustration, failure, anger, rejection, hurt, and depression. Program objectives include learning to proactively prevent and/or de-escalate a potential crisis situation with a child or young person, manage a crisis situation in a therapeutic manner, and if necessary, intervene physically in a manner that reduces the risk of harm to children and staff and process the crisis event with children and young people to help improve their coping strategies. Upon completion, this training will certify the attendee in Levels I & II certification.

Attendance is required for all four days to receive certification.

Lunch will be on your own on 3/9, 3/10, and 3/23. Lunch will be provided on 3/24.

In Person
Lunch Provided
Book Included
"Help - My students can't write!” Although this is an American sentiment expressed all too frequently, there has been little to address the decades of statistics that support the perspective… until now! TWR, also known as the Hochman Method, presents a self-contained ecosystem of sentence-level strategies, single and multiple paragraph outlines (SPO & MPO) and structures, as well as note-taking and summary writing techniques. TWR is not a program; it is, however, an explicit instructional method poised to address the longstanding deficiency of writing skills still plaguing schools today. In Part 1, participants can expect to learn and understand six (6) guiding principles, as well as approximately nine (9) sentence-level strategies. In Part 2, participants will continue to investigate single and multi-paragraph outline structures, as well as annotating and summary writing techniques.

Registered participants will receive a copy of the text The Writing Revolution.
