Adaptive School Training

This training is provided by the Illinois MTSS Network which is a project of the Illinois State Board of Education.

This seminar is the “how” of professional learning communities:  how to participate in groups, how to lead, and how to facilitate for improved leading, teaching, and learning.  This seminar goes beyond the idea of professional learning communities to the actual implementation, describing specific ways to weave the collaborative fabric of a faculty, develop group member skills, and acquire the principles and understandings to engage in a continuous cycle of team and individual improvement.

This is a four-day training.  Participation in all four days is required and materials are provided:  April 11 & 12 & May 9 & 10, 2017 from 9 AM – 4:00 PM each day.

The Trail PRESENTS Connecting the Dots

Professional Learning Collaborative IARSS TRAIL Speaker Series: Managing the Classroom Effectively.  Creating Student Success by Combining Social Emotional Learning with Effective Classroom Management.  Featuring speaker, Author, founder of Connections Count and Freedom Writer Teacher:  Anne Schober.

The best learning occurs when supportive relationships are present.  Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is at the center of this success.  This highly interactive and engaging day will provide participants with many different techniques which they can use in their classrooms to formulate strong and productive relationships with their students with Social Emotional Learning as the central focus.

Anne Schober was in the trenches and has witnessed the massive transformation that has occurred in education.  When she entered her first classroom, she had dreams of perfect students, involved parents and lots of learning happening on a daily basis.  Her dreams were crushed and she had no idea how to reach her students.  In 2007, she was chosen by Erin Gruwell, the founder of the Freedom Writer Foundation and the teacher behind the movie, The Freedom Writers, to become one of 400 teachers worldwide to student under her tutelage.  Through this exposure, Anne learned how to engage, enlighten and empower her students and learned the importance of the student-teacher bond.

#11361 ELA Standards: Speaking and Listening

The ELA Speaking and Listening Standards address our students’ ability to listen to and discuss texts that are read aloud or information that is presently orally, in order to gain information. These standards overlap with the ELA reading, language, and writing standards. They cannot be viewed as six separate silos.

Come and join me as we learn how to integrate the Speaking and Listening Standards into your lessons.

“The speaking and listening standards expect students to participate in rich, structure conversations in which they are building on the ideas of others and speaking in complete sentences. Teachers need to create models and routines for deliberate and intentional dialogue that builds bridges to the students’ reading and writing.

To build a foundation for college and career readiness, students must have ample opportunities to take part in a variety of rich, structured conversations-as part of a whole class, in small groups, and with a partner.
