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.

Sheltered English Instruction Institute-Integrating Language and Content for English Learners (full)

Description:

Educating students who still are acquiring English proficiency can be complex in an age of high stakes evaluations and assessments as well as college and career-ready standards. English learners (ELs) are not monolithic in their educational background, cultural experiences, and ability to adapt to learning environments. However, through well-planned instruction, ELs can attain challenging academic standards. There are many factors to consider when educators work to equip students with the skills for rigorous, academic learning.

· Some students come to class performing at or above grade level in their home language while others have interruptions in their education.

· Some students are close to reaching English proficiency while others are just beginning their quest toward fluency.

· Some students thrive in the culture of the classroom while others withdraw because they feel disorientated.

The Sheltered English Instruction Institute will integrate the FABRIC paradigm and Sheltered English Instruction which together enable teachers to provide diverse groups of English learners with access to classroom content while they acclimate to an English learning environment. The six threads of FABRIC are:

· Foundational Skills

· Academic Discussions

· Background Knowledge

· Resources

· Individualized Assessment

· Culture


This program is funded through the NJ Department of Education. There is no cost to school districts to register teachers for the program. However, registration and district approval are required in order to participate. Attendance at all 6 sessions is required.

The program is open to K-12 teachers of English Learners on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

All sessions will be held at the SRI&ETTC, 10 W. Jimmie Leeds Road, Galloway, NJ 08205.

Audience: K-12 Teachers

What Schools Need to Know About Trauma Informed Care

Description:

One out of every 4 children attending school has experienced one or more traumatic events in their life that can affect learning and/or behavior, and set the child up for lifelong mental health problems, substance abuse, and involvement in the juvenile justice system.  What does this have to do with schools?  Well, as many teachers, administrators and school counselors know, quite a bit.  While it is true that schools are set up for teaching and learning, learning can't happen when a child's brain is hijacked by traumatic stress and can't take in, or process information. Teachers can't effectively impart information to a class of students when traumatic stress has caused a child to become so dysregulated that their behavior is disruptive or uncontrollable.

This full day workshop will focus on helping school personnel understand trauma and its aftermath with the goal of helping affected students feel safe and nurtured and enable them to learn and thrive despite the challenges they may face in their homes or neighborhoods.  

This workshop will be presented by Donna Amundson, LCSW. 
Donna Amundson, is the Executive Director of the Genesis Training Institute and has over 30 years of field experience as a clinical social worker. She specializes in psychological trauma interventions, traumatic grief, and suicidology. Ms. Amundson is one of the Senior Program Managers for the International Trauma Center (ITC).  She is also a Master Trainer for the Training Institute for Suicide Assessment and Clinical Interviewing (TISA) for which she provides national and international certification trainings for clinicians in the Chronological Assessment of Suicide Events (CASE) Approach. Ms. Amundson was employed for 27 years at the University of Medicine and Dentistry, University Behavioral HealthCare (now Rutgers University) where she was TLC Program Manager, she also created a statewide trauma response network that continues to provide posttraumatic stabilization for youth in schools and communities in the aftermath of suicide, homicide, accidents, and larger disasters.

Extending the High School Biology Laboratory

Description:

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. Sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) will be used to separate a mixture of proteins into its individual components and the amino acid composition of each individual protein will also be analyzed using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). While these methods are not done at the high school level, Biochemistry/Molecular Biology majors at Stockton will be expected to do service learning projects to assist teachers by providing results to the supplement or helping to design novel experiments for high school science teachers. There will be an opportunity during the workshop to discuss and identify other science labs that could be extended with additional analysis.

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.
