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.

#11339  Bullying and Beyond:  Tools for Understanding and Engaging 21st Century Students as Dual Citizens
This course covers a lot of ground but it is ultimately about designing and maintaining safe and supportive learning conditions for 21st Century learners.  As a result, it is important to understand the needs of these learners and where any barriers to learning occur.  When learning stops for any reason – significant negative outcomes can be predicted.  The reality is that a great deal has changed for educators to “catch up” on to effectively serve the needs of “millennial learners”.

This course is about understanding why it will take a more thoughtful and comprehensive approach and what educators can do today to help prevent any number of undesirable outcomes for their students.  It is also about providing a reflective learning process designed for you to self-assess your own approach, self-determine areas where you want to make instructional shifts, and the tools to do so.  The title of the course is intentional – if we seek to “end bullying” we might miss out on so much of what our students need to be prepared for the 21st century learning opportunities they have.  By focusing on how to design learning conditions that prepare students for those opportunities, we will also have made significant strides in putting an end to bullying in all its forms.
3 University credits available        Cost: $345

#11338  Engaging Parents Effectively to Remove Barriers in Learning
While it seems to be very common sense, creating  the conditions for effective engagement of parents and community is also more challenging to implement than we want to admit.  There are a number of reasons for this, but regardless of those reasons it doesn’t change the fact that we cannot set parent and community engagement aside for “more important things.”  In almost every area of education, effective parent engagement increases the likelihood of success for the community, for families, for educators – and most importantly-for students.  National resources to keep these efforts at the forefront f our minds take place amidst many worthy competitors for our professional attention.  For example, the USDOE’s recent efforts to engage families and communities is to provide a framework intended to guide practitioners.  This is an important effort we need to be aware of.  There are a number of dimensions to the work but it also states explicitly a major challenge in a form of an assumption that must be addressed.  Over 50 years of research links the various roles that families play in a child’s education-as supporters of learning, encouragers of grit and determination, models of lifelong learning, and advocates of proper programming and placements for their child. Given this research base, the increase in policies promoting family engagement is a sign of progress toward improving educational opportunities for all children.  Yet these mandates are often predicated on a fundamental assumption:  that the educators and families charged with developing effective partnerships between home and school already possess the requisite successfully implement and sustain these important home-school relationships.  Unfortunately, this assumption is deeply flawed.  Principals and teachers receive little training for engaging families and report feeling under-prepared, despite valuing relationships with families.
3 University credits available        Cost: $345

#11337  Creating a Culture for Learning- Classroom and Behavior Management Plans that Work
This course is designed to teach how to create classroom and behavior management plans that create orderly classrooms where students can and want to do the hard work that is required to succeed.
The Safety, Order and Rights value set is used as the framework for clarifying and communicating the classroom expectations, and it is compatible with other value sets that simply and easily communicate the rationale for expectations and procedures.  This course discusses what motivates students to ensure what is communicated to them is relevant and meaningful.  In addition to designing a classroom management plan that will work in their classroom, participants will learn two verbal techniques that help keep behaviors optimal and in line with the expectations in the classroom.  The techniques are constructed to teach stduents about making choices, consequences and likely outcomes that result from their choices.  Successfully implementing a classroom management plan that works to create clarity of expectations, order (not regimentation), respect and the rewards of hard work and learning is essential to your students’ academic achievement and psychosocial development.  It is also essential in creating a work environment for yourself that results in tremendous job satisfaction.
3 University credits available        Cost: $345

#6714 Giving Directives that Students Will Follow

#6719  Building Capacity for Effective Reading through Collaborative Inquiry (formerly called: Coaching to Improve Reading)
Students who can read effectively and efficiently have a door-opening skill: an ability to decode understand and successfully interact with information in a host of subject areas, and an opportunity to be a successful learner.  Because the focus of this course is to learn and apply specific coaching strategies in the teaching of reading, the course will not address every aspect of reading instruction, nor is it intended as a course on a particular methodology of reading instruction.  However, when you are referencing a particular methodology of reading instruction, you will be asked to tie it to your state standards for the grade you are teaching.  Effective coaching strategies are paired with intentional best practice in reading in an effort to grow both kinds of skills.  The methods of coaching intentional best practice in reading will help every teacher to be more effective and intentional in the teaching of reading and will provide a methodology to support any and all specific reading programs.
3 University credits available         Cost:   $345

#6717 Foundations of Today’s Classroom and Current Trends in Education

The first section of this course explores several current themes in instruction including the Common Core Standards, Universal Design for Learning, and measuring effective teaching. The next section provides a brief overview of different IWB systems before digging in deeper to build a strong foundation of IWB skills such as using the basic software tools and integrating other software and hardware. The section following shows how these skills can be integrated into multiple curricular areas including language arts, math, science, social studies, physical education, music, and art. Throughout, there are connections to common core standards in multiple grade levels and UDL differentiation suggestions. In the last section, you will apply your knowledge to create and teach a lesson of your own, using at least seven of the IWB skills you have learned in this course and identify the standard(s) it supports and at least one differentiation extension. This course includes over 40 videos of a credentialed, SMART® certified teacher demonstrating the skills and how they support instruction.
