Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts (Online Workshop)

When you and I were growing up, the words Trojans, worms, viruses and spam had considerably different meanings than they do today.

These electronic parasites can be sucking your personal data and affecting the performance of your computer. This workshop will give you a better understanding of these dangers and introduce strategies on how you can deal with them.

Connecting Phonics First® to the Common Core (Online Version)

Description:

Connecting Phonics First® to the Common Core                           
Target Group: All teachers trained in the Phonics First® Foundations program.
Prerequisite:  Completion of Phonics First® Beginnings, Basic or Foundations Level I.

During the Connecting Phonics First® to the Common Core workshop, teachers look at the decoding and fluency-related standards of the common core and determine the Phonics First® instructional components that ensure success for beginning, struggling, at-risk, ELL and LD students.

DESCRIPTION:
The adoption of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) means schools must immediately and rapidly gear-up struggling readers. The demands of the CCSS' higher-level comprehension skills require students employ accurate decoding and fluent reading in order to be able to comprehend increasingly complex text. Consistent implementation of specific Phonics First® strategies in the classroom and intervention settings allows teachers to accurately target specific skill-deficits and to support and strengthen student decoding and fluency.

During the Connecting Phonics First® to the Common Core workshop, teachers look at the decoding and fluency-related standards of the common core and determine the Phonics First® instructional components that ensure success for beginning, struggling, at-risk, ELL and LD students. Teachers will then review and practice strategy implementation for classroom and small-group instruction at the prevention, intervention and remediation levels. Workshop will also include an introduction to Reciprocal  Teaching, a powerful tool for deepening comprehension through a process of clarifying, questioning, summarizing and predicting.

Technology Tools for Teaching to the Common Core Standards in Math – Grades 6-12

Description:

From a continuous mathematical progression and conceptual understanding in the K-5 setting, to mastering content and hands-on applications in the middle school setting, to applying mathematical concepts toward modeling and real-world connections in the high school setting - the Common Core Math Standards encompass the rigor needed to prepare our students for our global society. The standards are strong, yet often the textbooks are not. Teachers need rich experiences for students to meet the expectations of the Common Core Math Standards.


This workshop will provide quality technology tools and resources that cultivate a deep mathematical understanding in support of the Common Core Math Standards. These resources will include visual resources, real-world, web-based activities, as well as interactive resources. Spending the day in this workshop, participants will use a custom created webpage to:


1. be introduced to visual technology resources that allow students to experience math on different levels and "see" the math taking place through videos, animations, demonstrations, simulations, and tutorials.


2. choose from a variety of web-based activities to implement that connect math concepts to the real-world, creating for students a deeper and more connected, meaningful understanding.


3. experiment with an assortment of interactive math technology resources that either enhance instruction or enrich student practice and comprehension.


4. collect or create lessons that support a variety of standards through technology integration.


Teachers will not only be able to leave feeling comfortable with resources in support of the standards, but also know that they will be fostering the 21st century skills required for students' career readiness, the ultimate intent of the Common Core.

Extending the High School Biology Laboratory

Description: **This workshop is FREE to participants, but preregistration is required **

One of the classical high school biology laboratories is to measure protein, fat and sugar content in various foods. This workshop will provide participants with another and more quantitative methods which can be applied to this typical high school biology laboratory. Participants will be introduced to a lab method that will separate and characterize the individual proteins in various types of foods.

The concise and generally witty nature of memes will require your students to think carefully about their subject and the visual nature of memes makes for colorful and captivating classroom displays. Using free and available apps, repurpose old shots or take new ones, and let students create the stories that go with them. Whether you are introducing a new topic or trying to add some life to an old one, a meme is a very quick and simple way to inject some fun into a discussion. Use Memes as creative writing  activities, to set class rules, expectations, and/or procedures, as Ice-breakers or "Get-to-Know-You" activities, and to promote (and reinforce) your curriculum.

Dyslexia II

Description: Dyslexia, the most recognized of reading problems, is a neurological disorder that is often characterized by difficulties in recognizing and decoding words, leading to lower comprehension and fluency. Although there is no exact count, it is estimated that one in ten people may be afflicted with some form of dyslexia.

Governor Christie signed legislation that, for the first time, prominently recognizes dyslexia in state statute and regulation, making it a requirement for districts to deal with this disability. A definition of dyslexia must now be specifically written into special education code and a yearly 2-hour professional development requirement for dyslexia is now mandated for all teachers in grades pre-K through grade 3, special education, reading and ESL teachers, reading specialists, learning disabilities teacher consultants, and speech-language specialists.

This two hour training will provide participating administrators, pre-K to 3 educators, Special Education supervisors, and Child Study Team members with detailed information about this legislation, citing the specificity and requisites that impact the governance and operation of all school districts in New Jersey. The impact that the law will have on special education programs, as well as the specific components that must be included in the required training, will be reviewed during the session. Participants will have ample opportunity to ask questions.

Audience: Administrators, pre-K to 3 educators, Special Education supervisors, and Child Study Team members

Anti-Bullying Conference 2016 - Safe and Supportive Schools for All Our Students - Wednesday registration only


The Ceceilyn Miller Institute for Leadership and Diversity in America presents its Annual New Jersey Anti-Bullying and School Safety Conference on the campus of Stockton University. Our theme this year is Safe and Supportive Schools for All Our Students. The conference will serve as a venue for knowledgeable national scholars and practitioners to share their expertise on the prevention of bullying and the creation of safe, positive school climate and culture. During the course of the two days we will focus on research and experience which have clearly shown that, unfortunately, some of our most vulnerable students are the ones who are most negatively impacted by bullying, teasing and harassment. This year we will be focusing on the prevention of peer mistreatment of special education students, sexual minority students, immigrant students and other targeted populations so that all students feel safe and welcome at school.

Understanding and Managing Mental Health Disorders in the Classroom

Description:

Why the Humanities Matter Summer Institute for Teachers

Description:

ETTC HOURS WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM THE 2016-2017 NEWLY ALLOCATED HOURS

This four-day institute explores strategies for interpreting a wide range of American literary texts and material objects, including stories, poems, folktales, memoirs, and quilts and is designed for both English/language arts and social studies teachers. We will ask how these texts and objects comment on the historical and cultural contexts from which they emerge. How can a memoir evoke the geography of a particular place? What story can a quilt or a butter churn tell us about American history? What does South Jersey folklore reveal about regional cultural practices and everyday life? Participants will come away from the institute with practical lesson plans, classroom activities, and student project ideas that support the Common Core State Standards. Lunch and light refreshments will be provided.
