35. SEL and Racial Equity Media Study

Program: Curriculum Instruction and Prof Dev

Audience: Teachers, Related Service Providers, School Leaders

Dates: 10/18/2022 to 5/16/2023

Our SEL and Racial Equity Media Study is an 8-part virtual series dedicated to deepening participants' understanding of racial equity on an interpersonal, cultural, and systemic level. Tailored to the needs, interests, and challenges of participants, this course is an intimate growth space where learners can receive support catered to their journey as a group and individuals. While true SEL must be antiracist and equitable, too often resources have been developed through a single, limited lens. Refracting that perspective - re-defining our understanding of social emotional learning as anti-racist (and anti all systems of oppression), open-hearted, and curious - is a critical step in transforming learning spaces for all children and youth. This series will push participants to understand the prevalence and aggression of racism, white supremacy, and systemic oppression within our society, education systems, and non-profit structures. Pulling from a variety of media (articles, videos, and podcasts), this learner-driven series will feature guided discussion from Children's Institute staff. We encourage full attendance in the series, but sessions will stand alone in order to accommodate busy schedules. Tuesdays from 5:30-7:00 pm, via Zoom:
• October 18, 2022
• November 15, 2022
• December 20, 2022
• January 17, 2023

Starting Today
Intentionally putting social-emotional learning at the forefront is important for various reasons. Ensuring students' basic needs are met allows them to build a trusting relationship with you, which in turn creates greater opportunity for growth and development in the classroom. A great tool for checking in on your students is by creating a Classroom Connections Check in Microsoft Forms.

By having students quickly reflect on which adults they feel most connected to, you will gain quick feedback on student-perceived connections and can then use that data to reflect on teacher pedagogy, relationship-building, and student performance.

Viewing Digital Citizenship through a Social Emotional Learning lens brings additional layers of understanding. How students behave online involves self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. With lessons designed for metacognition, students reflect on their own thoughts and feelings in a way that creates lasting connections. Join us to explore awesome resources for bringing Digital Citizenship to life with SEL in your classroom.

Program: Curriculum Instruction and Prof Dev

Audience: K- 5 teachers, instructional coaches and administrators.

Dates: 1/18/2023

As more teachers look to add high-yield tasks to their repertoire, the struggle to make it all work becomes real. Let's examine how problem-based lessons can be used throughout the scope of a unit and how we can harness their power to move student thinking forward. We'll identify strategies and explore some tasks that help us find a healthy balance between application, conceptual understanding, and procedural fluency. Participants will:

•Unpack the importance of application, conceptual learning, and procedural fluency, and the role they play in moving student thinking through a mathematical progression.

•Engage in grade appropriate 3-act tasks and understand how the implementation of low-entry, high-scalability tasks can be used to reach all students. Participants will identify when and how these lessons can be used throughout the scope of a unit.

•Understand how problem-based lessons can be used within the instructional framework (opening, work session, close), and the purposeful moves required to orchestrate an effective closing session.

Program: Curriculum Instruction and Prof Dev

Audience: 3- 6 teachers, instructional coaches and administrators.

Dates: 1/19/2023

Let's explore some key understandings involving fractions by examining the developmental progression of models, strategies, and concepts, and how they all build on one another. Many times, as our fraction units near, the emphasis on teaching and learning mathematics shifts to rules and procedures which shouldn't be the case. To avoid this approach, we'll identify how simple changes in everyday practice can leave a math residue that builds solid reasoning and makes student understanding stick.

Participants will:
•Unpack the importance of application, conceptual learning, and procedural fluency, and the role they play in moving student thinking through a mathematical progression.
•Engage in grade appropriate 3-act tasks and understand how the implementation of low-entry, high-scalability tasks can be used to reach all students. Participants will identify when and how these lessons can be used throughout the scope of a unit.
•Understand how problem-based lessons can be used within the instructional framework (opening, work session, close), and the purposeful moves required to orchestrate an effective closing session.

Teachers ask a lot of questions - often as much as 50% of instructional time.
