19. LILIE ONLINE IN SERVICE ONLY: Bilingual Education -From Theory to Practice

Program: Model Schools

Dates: 8/1/2020 to 8/31/2020

This course is designed to prepare bilingual, ESOL, and interested mainstream teachers to successfully work with English Language Learners, in the context of bilingual/ESL programs. It includes the study of the historical, psychological, social, cultural, political, theoretical, and legal foundations of bilingual education programs in the United States. Participants will examine different bilingual program models and will explore and implement effective research-based strategies of instruction in the main content areas. Communication with parents and families, concerning students' academic and social outcomes will be highlighted.
The image of a successful person can vary from one individual to the next; however, upon closer inspection those who succeed share a common quality: their mindset. This course will examine how teachers have the ability to positively impact their own lives as a result of mindset, but equally important, how students can benefit from a growth mindset culture. Participants will discover what mindsets are and how they affect the classroom, specific ways to cultivate this culture, the role of critical thinking, a fixed mindset or a growth mindset, ways to change mindsets, and ultimately, a new way of thinking that can transform students' learning experiences.

21. LILIE ONLINE IN SERVICE ONLY: Effects of the Mind Body Connection

Program: Model Schools

Dates: 8/1/2020 to 8/31/2020

The "Mind-Body Connection" has a profound effect on an individual's learning. The mind-body connection can be explained as the physical and mental connection between our existence and how we perceive the world. Some researchers believe that the mind is a result of electrical activity in the brain. Others believe the mind exists outside of the body and affects the brain, causing the electromagnetic activity that we can observe with technology. This course will focus on Contemporary Mind-body Perspectives, the Emotion's Effect on the body, how the mind and body are functionally inseparable, how thought affects physiology, how to harness the power of positive attitude, unconscious and conscious awareness, responsibility and creative intelligence, core beliefs and seed thoughts, emotion and the body's language, mental projections and expectations, interpersonal versus intrapersonal communication, body messages, technological feedback, brain- body integration, how the brain and body communicate, the stress response, the relaxation response, the subconscious mind and behavior, how exercise, physical fitness, nutrition and sleep affect learning, how a healthy body fosters a healthy mind, and how to improve the capacity to learn.
Standing between kids and the onslaught of fake news is the educator. Many of today's media outlets are filled with cleverly delivered and phrased misinformation making it dire for students to be critical thinkers in order to be able to spot that misinformation. This course will assist teachers in developing specific content-based lessons that will empower students to apply the strategies and analysis skills necessary in order to recognize real, hard fact-based and credible information and dismiss the phonies.
This course will help participants explore various research based motivational theories. Emphasis on intrinsic and extrinsic motivational factors will be analyzed and discussed. Participants in the course will learn about how to incorporate role models and peer models into classroom activities. Participants will also learn how to promote a culture of learning by taking on supportive/coaching roles within a traditional classroom setting. Concepts learned in this course will enable teachers to meet the rigor of the Common Core Curriculum and motivate their students to excel with academic goals.

Program: Eastern Suffolk BOCES Professional Development Program

Audience: K-12 Educators and Administrators

Dates: 10/21/2020

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
