Effectively Leading, Supporting and Sustaining a Personalized Learning Culture; Being an Effective Multiplier vs Accidental Diminisher
Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale:
Participants will be able to:
* Identify key characteristics of a leader of personalized learning.
* Examine the characteristics of a Multiplier and how to increase your capacity to support personalized learning.
* Develop an understanding of and implications for being an Accidental  Diminisher.

Description:
Do you sometimes feel as if you are a cheerleader every day in class rallying your students to jump on board with new learning? Do you find yourself jumping in to offer answers or ideas because no one is speaking up? Are you always two steps ahead of your peers when it comes to implementing new ideas and innovative practices? If you answered "yes" to any of these, you may be an Accidental Diminisher vs an effective Multiplier.  In this session we will explore what it means to be an Accidental Diminisher and techniques that can help you model being an effective multiplier that supports personalized learning for all students.


Modalities/Implementation Practices:
Whole group instruction, partner sharing, small group collaboration, and personal reflection.

Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope
Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
Awareness, Behavior Change, Call to Action

Description: 
Researchers have recently discovered a dangerous biological syndrome caused by abuse and neglect during childhood. As the documentary Resilience reveals, toxic stress can trigger hormones that wreak havoc on the brains and bodies of children, putting them at a greater risk for disease, homelessness, prison time, and early death. While the broader impacts of poverty worsen the risk, no segment of society is immune. Resilience, however, also chronicles the dawn of a movement that is determined to fight back. Trailblazers in pediatrics, education, and social welfare are using cutting-edge science and field-tested therapies to protect children from the insidious effects of toxic stress—and the dark legacy of a childhood that no child would choose.

Testing Accommodations: What's Up with That?
Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale:
All participants will have a better understanding of their role as a regular education or exceptional teacher when choosing/assigning testing accommodations for their students. One accommodation does not fit all students or needs in the classroom and some accommodations can actually be a hindrance. We will explore the research behind testing accommodations and how we can improve in personalizing for our students. 

Description:
Have you ever wondered how testing accommodations are decided upon for your students or which accommodations are necessary for student success? Is it a "One Size Fits All" decision? Have you ever wondered what the implications are for a student to be assigned testing accommodations? We will explore the research behind the accommodations allowed on state testing and how they can be helpful, harmful (to some students), and how we can work towards a common understanding of what "individual" really means in terms of testing accommodations.

Interdisciplinary Art, Personalized!
Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale:
I would like the outcome of this session to, largely, be teachers who feel more confident in understanding learner profiles and how to use the learner  profiles to create personalized pathways. Another outcome I'd like to have is helping teachers understand how the art curriculum can be crossed, in many ways, with the core curriculums. I want them to hear how, my visual and artistic students who struggle in various core curriculums, have learned core standards through creating artwork. 

Description:
How can learning be personalized in the art room to support the standards in the core curriculum? Then, I will explain how I use learner profiles to determine how I will deliver the material to the students. From the explanation about learner profiles, I will explain how I use the profiles to create the personalized pathways for my learners. Lastly, I will explain how I use a reflection piece from the students at the end of each unit to improve the unit, and to determine how to move into the next unit. My learners in art are more engaged when they know the curriculum has been personalized to them, which helps them to learn more effectively. 

Modalities/Implementation Practices:
Video testimonials by students, Prezi, note pages/framework pages, and all things Google!

Personalized Learning in the Classroom: A Teacher's Example
Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale:
Participants will engage themselves with the idea that you can fit personalized learning in your classroom. Teachers will explore a personalized learning journey taken by someone just like you (a classroom teacher!) who lived and breathed the process. Listen to the journey from the start of a great idea, to the implementation, redirection, and self-reflection of the unit and how I made it work! When participants leave this session they will feel ready to try personalized learning in their classroom in the coming year, even in a small setting, and how to weave it in with what you are already doing to enhance the learning in their classrooms. 

Description:
My session will focus on my journey through personalized learning. From the beginning stages of what to do through reflecting and fixing the units as I went along with my team. I will show teachers an example of what personalized learning could look like in a classroom. I believe that this will help teachers see how you could actually fit personalized learning into their classroom. It will enable students to be more self-aware of their strengths and weaknesses as well as engaging them through some technology use and knowledge that they start where they need to be. 

Modalities/Implementation Practices:
I will be using Google Slides, videos of how my unit worked in the classroom, as well as hard copies of my units to show as an example.

Self Care Cafe: Come Fill Your Cup
Limited Capacity filling up

Learning Objectives & Rationale:
  • Teachers will learn that self care can positively impact the individual, students, PLCs, and overall school culture.
  • Teachers will be immersed in self care practices
  • Teachers will recognize the need for self care, and understand the importance of prioritizing self-care, personally and professionally
  • Teachers will develop a self-preserving mindset
  • Teachers will recognize the impact self care and preservation have on themselves, PLCs, and their classrooms
  • Teachers will explore research, and create a personalized self care plan
  • Teachers will commit to implementing 1 self care strategy for themselves, 1 to share with their PLC, and 1 to implement with students

Description: 
"You cannot pour from an empty cup." As educators we often put ourselves "on the backburner" thinking that by putting our students first, we are doing what is best for them. What we don’t realize is that when we prioritize our selves, our students and colleagues stand to benefit. Join us as we explore the benefits of self care, igniting a renewal both personally and professionally. Exercise your passion, rediscover you joy, and reconnect with your peace! A happy teacher = a happy class!

Modalities/Implementation Practices:
  • Model self care strategies
  • Offer personalized learning options
  • Allow teachers to formulate plans for self care through discourse

The Five Protective Factors: How Teachers Can Support Families in Building Resilience in Their Students (Part 1 of 3)
Limited Capacity filling up


This is for both Pre-school and K-2 Teachers
Part 1 of 3

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
Protective factors are conditions in families and communities that, when present, increase the health and well-being of children and families. These attributes serve as buffers, helping parents find resources, support, or coping strategies that allow them to parent effectively, even under stress. Research has shown that the protective factors are linked to a lower incidence of child abuse and neglect.

After this training participants will be able to:
- List five protective factors that help keep families strong and prevent child abuse and neglect.
- Identify multiple strategies and everyday actions that help families to build those protective factors.
- Understand what it means to work with families in a strength-based way.

Description: 
When a child experiences adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), it can have life-long consequences for physical and mental health. But, one caring adult can make a difference. That's why we know building protective factors in parents and communities is important.

This session will discuss the five protective factors and how teachers and school communities can work to build these protective factors. The five protective factors are: Social and Emotional Competence, Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development, Social Connections, Concrete Support, and Resilience

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
Small group discussion and activities, videos, some large group teaching, facilitated conversation

Collaborative Learning with Positive Behavioral Support
Limited Capacity filling up

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
Participants will understand both collaborative learning and positive behavioral support. Participants will gain real implementation strategies of both of these models. 

Description: 
Collaborative Learning with Positive Behavioral Supports will focus on the incorporation of two research-based strategies to create an engaging classroom environment where students are engaged in discourse and critical thinking and are rewarded for desired outcomes. These strategies have been shown to increase student learning because it allows the teacher to facilitate and the students to take charge of their own learning. It also creates a learning environment that is conducive to engaging activities such as PBL, games, and inquiry-based problems. 

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
Throughout the session, participants will experience these things first hand. They will engage in competitive activities and will collaborate with their peers. There will be a short lecture to give some background but most of the time will be spent on discourse and activities within the groups.

Doing Discipline Differently: The Power of Restorative Practices
Limited Capacity filling up

Learning Objectives & Rationale: Essential questions:  
1.  What are our values, and how do they manifest in how we behave and ask others to behave?  2.  How do we communicate these values  in our expectations?  3.  How do we respond when there is a disconnect?  4.  How can the restorative process assist us in aligning and bridging the gap?

Description: 
Student engagement is something we have seen at a high level, and we believe it is largely because of the voice they have in the process of how things are set up, how our values are discussed, and how we as a community will handle when issues arise.  When students feel valued and safe to express their perspective and problem-solve, they are free to learn.  It's brain science.  We will provide relevant examples of how it works for us.  

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
In addition to discussion among participants, there will be graphics shared for interpretation, video clips, and practice with real scenarios.

Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale:
Participants will be able to:
* Identify key characteristics of a leader of personalized learning.
* Examine the characteristics of a Multiplier and how to increase your capacity to support personalized learning.
* Develop an understanding of and implications for being an Accidental  Diminisher.

Description:
Do you sometimes feel as if you are a cheerleader every day in class rallying your students to jump on board with new learning? Do you find yourself jumping in to offer answers or ideas because no one is speaking up? Are you always two steps ahead of your peers when it comes to implementing new ideas and innovative practices? If you answered "yes" to any of these, you may be an Accidental Diminisher vs an effective Multiplier.  In this session we will explore what it means to be an Accidental Diminisher and techniques that can help you model being an effective multiplier that supports personalized learning for all students.


Modalities/Implementation Practices:
Whole group instruction, partner sharing, small group collaboration, and personal reflection.

The Five Protective Factors: How Teachers Can Support Families in Building Resilience in Their Students (Part 2 of 3)
Limited Capacity filling up

This session is Part 2 of 3
Open to Preschool and Primary Grade teachers

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
Protective factors are conditions in families and communities that, when present, increase the health and well-being of children and families. These attributes serve as buffers, helping parents find resources, support, or coping strategies that allow them to parent effectively, even under stress. Research has shown that the protective factors are linked to a lower incidence of child abuse and neglect.

After this training participants will be able to:
- List five protective factors that help keep families strong and prevent child abuse and neglect.
- Identify multiple strategies and everyday actions that help families to build those protective factors.
- Understand what it means to work with families in a strength-based way.
Description: 
When a child experiences adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), it can have life-long consequences for physical and mental health. But, one caring adult can make a difference. That's why we know building protective factors in parents and communities is important.

This session will discuss the five protective factors and how teachers and school communities can work to build these protective factors. The five protective factors are: Social and Emotional Competence, Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development, Social Connections, Concrete Support, and Resilience
Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
Small group discussion and activities, videos, some large group teaching, facilitated conversation

Trauma Informed Classroom
Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
Desired outcomes for participants include the following:
Participants will better understand trauma and its presentation in children and adolescents
Participants will be able to recognize trauma symptoms in the students we serve
Participants will feel equipped to appropriately intervene to optimize clients learning and reduce frustration for teachers, students, and families
Participants will adequately view classroom needs in a trauma-informed lens
Participants will be able to identify individual goals when it comes to working with students who have experienced trauma

Description: 
The session content will include defining trauma and enhance the participant's knowledge on understanding trauma, its presentation in children and adolescents, and explain strategies to utilize. This will increase student learning and engagement by supplying the participant with strategies to implement in his/her classroom that promotes a learning environment that is welcoming and nurturing while supplying a safe place to learn. This session will also identify how the brain and trauma operate together. Trauma over stimulates the “protective” part of the brain and it gets stuck in “flight, fight, freeze” mode.  The other areas of the brain don’t have the opportunity to develop, leading to learning, social, and behavioral problems. Practical tips are included in the presentation to assist with classroom management and being proactive before a  trauma-informed outburst occurs. 

Modalities/Implementation Practices: Modalities include: powerpoint presentation, group, and individual activities, modeling behaviors

Building Our "Empathy Muscle"...Proactive Bullying Prevention
Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
1. Teachers will understand the relationship between empathy and bullying prevention.
2. Teachers will understand how empathy and social justice are connected.
3. Teachers will explore student activities that will build the “empathy muscle”.
4. Teachers will explore everyday practices to model empathy in the classroom.
Description: 
Do your students frequently call each other names, make comments to embarrass one another or use language that could be hurtful to their peers...or even YOU?  Whether this is perceived as mischievous play or malicious targeting, it is wreaking havoc on the culture in your classroom and probably your sanity.  In this session, we will explore the connection between empathy and proactive bullying prevention.  You will gain insight to the importance of teaching empathy and how instrumental it can be  in creating an inclusive classroom culture where differences are valued instead of targeted.

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
Visual: Facilitators will use interactive presentation software that will be projected on a Smartboard/Smart Panel Tv/Projector.  In addition, both digital and print resources/lessons/activities/strategies will be available to each participant based on their preference and grade level.
Auditory: Facilitators will present information and model activities and best practices that teachers can take back to their classrooms.
Kinesthetic: Teachers will participant in “Cross the Line” activity which will have them up and out of their seats, moving, all while reflecting on their personal experiences with bullying and/or those of their students.

Make It Brain-Based: A Toolkit for Successful Learning
Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale: Participants will:
- Identify how the brain processes new information and learns.
- Inventory and interpret multiple brain-based practices for self-care, student learning, and a positive classroom culture.
- Experience brain-based practices during the session and evaluate them for effectiveness.
- Develop self-directed and time-bound goals for implementing brain-based practices (3 total: self-care, student learning, & classroom culture).
- Continue to generate new brain-based goals and communicate with a Brain-Based Team into the future.

Description: 
No matter your role, school setting, or grade level, everyone has at least two things in common:
1. We all have a brain.
2. We all work with other people that have brains too.
Simple, yet powerful! Harnessing the power and intricacies of the human brain can enhance learning, classroom culture, and self-care. Your brain will be actively engaged during this hands-on, collaborative session as you explore how the brain learns, discover specific brain-based practices, and develop self-directed goals for implementation. You will also be immersed in the learning as you experience several brain-based practices as the learner. You will leave this session with your very own Brain-Based Toolkit to assist you in future learning and implementation. Come with your thinking caps on!

Before the session, we encourage you to research brain-based learning topics that interest you. This is not required, but encouraged. (Hint: This itself is a brain-based strategy!)

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
During the session (and even before), participants will experience multiple brain-based strategies that I will point out including:
- Pre-Acquisition: The session description will ask participants to research brain-based topics of interest beforehand.
- Mind Map & Self-Assessment: The brain needs to know its goals and its destination. We will use a proficiency scale for this during this session that participants will also use to assess themselves on their goals after the session.
- Pre-Visualization: Participants will visualize future success before their initial learning and goal-setting. Then, we will again visualize success at the end of the session after participants have created their goals.

SEL in Real Life
Limited Capacity seats available

Learning Objectives & Rationale: 
There is much adieu about social and emotional learning and the effects on the classroom. Actually, making the SEL(Social and Emotional Learning)  and behavior modifications are similar to a delicate dance carried out by only the brave. The participants will take away real life examples of success and failures with regards to SEL. Grounded research and strategies will be offered as well as creating a community to grow together.

Description: 
How in the world am I supposed to have time for one more thing? Sounds like the mantra of nearly all of us in education right now, doesn't it. However, brain research has shown that with just a simple relationship an understanding of the student outside the classroom can have a tremendous impact on their ability to learn. Take some time to join us in a “real” conversation about what this can look like without letting go of the academics and without allowing the student to use their emotions as a crutch or an excuse.

Modalities/Implementation Practices: 
Presentations, question and answer, then collaboration.
