Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts (Online Workshop)

Description:

When you and I were growing up, the words Trojans, worms, viruses and spam had considerably different meanings than they do today. We took a pole and went out fishing, but today we encounter phishing expeditions and electronic bait trying to hook us. We are victimized by spyware, adware, and malware of all types. 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.

Dyslexia I, Online Course

Description:

This online workshop is intended for educators to provide an overview of Dyslexia.

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 2-hour (time varies per participant) webinar 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 online course.

Response To Intervention - Implementing RTI in the K-8 Classroom

Description:

The RTI process is a multi-step approach to providing services and interventions to students who have learning, behavior, or other challenges. The student’s progress at each level of intervention is closely monitored. Results of this monitoring are used to make decisions about the need for further research-based instruction and/or additional interventions in general education or special education.

This workshop will focus on the core principles of RTI beginning with the belief that all students can learn. Emphasis will be placed on focus and prevention rather than remediation, universal screening of academic, behavioral, and social emotional indicators of success, data based decision making, multi-tiered systems with implications of evidence based instruction, and ongoing progress monitoring of the students.

Participants will be exposed to Tier 1, 2, and 3 interventions and leave with a plethora of academic and behavioral strategies. They will also have an opportunity to work together to proactively anticipate challenges to creating and/or updating their RTI programs, and then brainstorm and discuss solutions. Our presenters, both experienced practitioners, will provide participants with proven, practical strategies for RTI implementation.

Workshop will be presented by Judy Feinberg & Chris Fuhs
Ms. Feinberg is the former Supervisor of Curriculum & Instruction at Linwood Schools and an Education Specialist at the SRI&ETTC. Ms. Fuhs is a former Special Education Teacher and Teaching and Learning Facilitator from Galloway Township Schools and a presenter for the SRI&ETTC.

Flipping the Classroom

Description:

Using a flipped classroom approach takes the whole class instruction to a technology based format, allowing the students to watch, listen, learn, question, communicate, and collaborate from either home, a library or media center, OR from their handheld phone or device.  Then different forms of small group instruction can target student learning needs through hands-on concept mastery, student discourse of content, student collaboration, or teacher conferencing.  Students can work at their own pace through mastery learning, or simply through a collaborative, small group setting. The teacher is then able to effectively differentiate by using the time more efficiently as a facilitator and coach and not as the "sage on the stage."

 

To experiment with the flipped experience, check out the concept by reviewing the infographic at  www.knewton.com/flipped-classroom. Then log your questions and commentary at  www.todaysmeet.com/fliptheclassroom for us to discuss when we meet.

When we flip, we will:
-consider a variety of instructional strategies to support the model
-experiment with the tools that support the model
-address your questions and concerns
-spend time creating your own flipped lesson!

Audience: Grades 3-12 Teachers

Reducing Racial Disparities in School Discipline

Description:

Dr. Anne Gregory will describe the persistence of racial discipline disparities in schools across the nation. She will offer a synthesis of the latest research on what contributes to the racial disparities in discipline. Dr. Gregory will discuss how the disparities can not only impact the students who are disciplined, but also impact their peers and wider school climate. She will then present the Framework for Increasing Racial Equity in School Discipline and using the Framework, describe a range of classroom and school practices and programs that demonstrate promise in eliminating racial disparities.

About Anne Gregory, Ph.D.

Anne Gregory, Associate Professor (Ph.D. University of California, Berkeley) is an associate professor in the Department of Applied Psychology at Rutgers University. Prior to coming to Rutgers, she was an assistant professor at the University of Virginia. Her research has focused on the persistent trend that African American adolescents are issued school suspension and expulsion at higher rates than adolescents from other groups. Through program development, implementation, and evaluation, she aims to address this trend by strengthening characteristics of teachers, classrooms, and schools associated with the successful schooling of diverse students. Her research interests also include improving teacher-student relationships, new directions for teacher professional development, and restorative approaches to discipline. She has authored over 40 peer-reviewed journal articles and numerous book chapters. Recent publications include, The promise of restorative practices to transform teacher-student relationships and achieve equity in school discipline and How educators can eradicate disparities in school discipline. Dr. Gregory’s research has been supported by federal agencies (U.S. Department of Justice and Institute of Education Sciences) and private foundations (William T. Grant Foundation, Spencer Foundation, NoVo Foundation). Dr. Gregory served on the Discipline Disparities Collaborative funded by Atlantic Philanthropies which convened lawyers, researchers, advocates, and youth leaders to address gaps in our knowledge about disparities, identify promising policy reform, and synthesize what schools can do to change patterns in school discipline.
