Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts (Online Workshop)

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.

All RLAC ELearning courses contain proprietary information and are only made accessible with each per teacher purchase. Once registration is complete you will be emailed instructions on how to access the course.

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

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.
