Program: Eastern Suffolk BOCES Professional Development Program

Audience: K-12 Educators, Social Worker, School Counselors, School Psychologists and support staff

Flyer: COVID-19 drastically changed everyone's life. While some of those changes will be permanent, most of the students in our schools will return to being together again with us adults. Many, perhaps most, of our students will be very different than when they last left our buildings. The social isolation, economic stress, barriers to resources and enduring uncertainties brought on by the pandemic interventions created a "perfect storm” for the development of anxiety, depression, and even trauma. Children and youth entering the pandemic already vulnerable will likely have suffered most from these new adversities. Inequity in the access to supportive educational, mental health and social services will likely exacerbate their struggles. To meet these dramatic healing needs our children and youth will bring us, helping adults can step-up to this new normal by boosting their resilience building skills. This session will equip educators to respond effectively to the needs students will bring when we regather in school buildings. Educational professionals at all levels can drastically increase student resilience by designing and implementing a resilience-building culture so that can served can heal, grow, learn and thrive. Equally important, participants will be exposed to practices they may currently be using that erode student resilience and lead to poor outcomes. In this workshop, we'll add to your toolbox by providing concrete strategies for building resilience in the complex post-COVID-19 context. These advanced tools will show you how to reconnect, calm, provide clear direction, manage boundaries, and instill hope with your students.

73. 'Live' Online-Collaborative & Proactive Solutions Moving From Power and Control to Collaboration and Problem-Solving Presented by Dr. Ross Greene, Ph.D

Program: Eastern Suffolk BOCES Professional Development Program

Audience: K-12 Educators and Administrators

Dates: 10/20/2020 to 10/21/2020

Flyer: This is the empirically supported model Dr. Ross Greene described his influential books The Explosive Child, Lost at School, Lost & Found, and Raising Using Beings. The CPS model has transformed thinking and practices in countless families, schools, inpatient psychiatry units, and residential and juvenile detention facilities throughout the world, and has been associated with dramatic reductions in adult-child conflict, challenging behaviors, disciplinary referrals, detentions, suspensions, seclusions, and physical, chemical, and mechanical restraints. The model represents a significant departure from discipline-as-usual: it focuses on solving problems rather than on modifying behavior, emphasizes collaborative rather than unilateral solutions, encourages proactive rather than reactive intervention, de-emphasizes diagnostic categories, and provides practical, research-based tools for assessment and intervention. Participants in this workshop will leave with an understanding of the underpinnings of the model, its refinements over the past 8-10 years, and practical assessment and intervention tools that can be brought back to and used in these diverse settings. At the conclusion of the seminar, participants will be able to:
•Describe the six key themes of the CPS model, and how the model focuses on problems (and solving them) rather than the behaviors that are being caused by those problems (and modifying them); the advantages of collaborative (rather than unilateral) problem solving; and the importance and feasibility of proactive (rather than reactive) intervention.
•Identify and assess the various cognitive skills that are central to adaptively handling life's social, emotional, and behavioral challenges
•Identify and prioritize the unsolved problems precipitating challenging behavior

82. 'Live' Online - Journey to Phenomena Based Science Instruction During Hybrid Teaching Presented by Brian Vorwald

Program: Eastern Suffolk BOCES Professional Development Program

Audience: Grades K-12 Science Educators and Chairs

Dates: 10/21/2020

New
The three-dimensional approach of the New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS) places an emphasis on phenomenon-based learning in which students use observations of the natural world to construct their own explanations (for science) or to solve problems (for engineering). Selecting observable, interesting, motivating, and complex phenomenon can drive student inquiry. A goal is student directed, but teacher facilitated, instruction that embeds the three-dimensions in the NYSSLS. We will consider phenomenon-based strategies that will transform instruction of current curricula to the NYSSLS approach. Included will be:
• Characteristics of good phenomena
• Resources to find phenomena
• The difference between an anchor phenomenon and a lesson (instructional) phenomenon and how they are used
• Tools to evaluate phenomenon-based lessons for alignment with 3D teaching
• Lesson planning templates

In particular, focuses on four key research-based components that comprise strategic vocabulary instruction for English learners:

•Strategic instruction of high-utility vocabulary

•A motivating learning environment that is rich in words

•Promoting students' independent word-learning skills

•Assessment techniques that inform strategic vocabulary instruction Participants will be able to:

•Select vocabulary words to target for direct instruction and identify word- learning strategies to teach these words

88. 'Live' Online-Starting from a Place of Strength: An Asset Based Approach to Learning Presented by Angela Lalor

Program: Eastern Suffolk BOCES Professional Development Program

Audience: Grades K-5 Educators, All Content Areas

Dates: 10/26/2020 to 11/5/2020

Grades K-5 Educators, All Content Areas An asset-based approach to learning is one that is grounded in what students can do, rather than what they cannot do or areas of weakness. It is built on an understanding of growth mindset. During this session, educators will examine three steps they can take to embrace an asset-based approach to learning in their schools or classroom:
•Clearly articulate foundational skills for priority standards. Given that standards, content and skills are scaffolded across grade levels, front-loading a review unit or reteaching entire units from the previous grade level might not be the best use of time. Identifying foundational standards will help teachers easily access information about expectations from the previous grade level.
•Design quick and simple classroom diagnostic assessments aligned to the foundational standards, content or skills to determine where students are in their learning so teachers can plan for instruction.
•Embed formative assessment opportunities so teachers can adjust instruction and provide different pathways for student learning.
