#11588 The Effects of Trauma on Behavior in the Classroom and Mindfulness

 

Come spend the day learning how trauma can affect student behaviors in our classrooms. We will define and identify symptoms of trauma and how it affects student learning and behavior in the classroom. We will also learn strategies that will assist school personnel to become more trauma informed and identify what each of our roles is in helping students who have experienced trauma. We will delve deeply into one specific strategy called “mindfulness” and how we can use it for ourselves and with our students. We will practice these strategies and you will take home a book of strategies to use in your classroom!

#11549 Making Sense of the Standards/Making Art with 3D and STEM Content

In this workshop designed for art educators participants will be looking at how to make sense of the new Illinois Visual Arts Standards using a backwards curriculum design framework. The presentation will focus on the Illinois Visual Arts Standards processes of Creating and Responding by demonstrating how to utilize specific 3D design and STEAM content within the framework. The presenter will walk through the steps of creating standards based curriculum showing participants how to integrate specific content within the framework. Participants will implement the framework by creating a 3D fiber sculpture. They will also have an opportunity to experiment with little Bits electrical connections as it applies to STEAM based art. These experiences will demonstrate the end goals of the backwards design framework.

#11573 Depth of Knowledge

At the heart of our Illinois Learning Standards is the need to increase the level of rigor in our classrooms for ALL students. Norman Webb’s Depth of Knowledge (DOK) Framework has become one of the key tools educators can employ to analyze the cognitive demand (complexity) intended in our Standards, by our curricular activities, and our assessment tasks. The standards alone do not bring rigor to our classrooms. DOK categorizes tasks by different levels of cognitive expectations, or depth of knowledge, required to successfully complete a task.

During this workshop, we will explore:

  • What is DOK? Why use DOK in your classrooms?
  • Articulate the DOK Framework with content-specific descriptions for use in the classroom.
  • Achieve a common understanding of DOK and how it relates to Common Core/PARCC.
  • Provide examples/activities/strategies implementing DOK.
  • How to building COGNITIVE RIGOR in your classrooms.

Math Number Talks & Jo Boaler

Presented by: Dr. Jim Olsen & Dr. Kim Hartweg

Two different sessions/grade levels are available. Participants may attend both the grades 1-4 (morning session) & the grades 5-8 (afternoon session). There will be some overlap in the basic notions, but the classroom activities will be at different levels. Also, participants attending both workshops may want to bring a lunch, as there will only be a 30 minute break.

Grades 1-4: We will look at how to use Number Talks and resources and ideas in the elementary classroom. Included will be patterns, number sense, operation sense, and growth mindset. We will connect the classroom activities to the Common Core State Standards for Math and the Math Practices.

Grades 5-8: We will look at how to use Math Talks and resources and ideas in the Middle School classroom. Included will be patterns, number sense, operation sense, algebraic thinking, fractions, and growth mindset. We will connect the classroom activities to the Common Core State Standards for Math and the Math Practices.

Bring a laptop or device, as we will be accessing online teaching resources. Note for those desiring to attend all day: Lunch is on your own.

#11552 Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) INTERFACE: Understanding the impact of trauma on health, behavior and your role in building resiliency for positive students outcomes FOUNDATIONAL SERVICES FOR ALL 2.0

Who: All Teachers, Administrators, school social workers, counselors, psychologists, para-educators, nurses, and other professionals working with students & community

When: March 5, 2018   @ 9:00 AM – 3:30 PM

Where: ROE Moline         

Cost:       $25.00                               PD Hours:  6 

Presenters: Anne McNelis, LCSW of Transitions Mental Health

Outcomes and Description:

If you work with children, learning about ACEs will change the way you deal with those difficult behaviors some children exhibit. The information in this workshop is a prerequisite to understanding the strategies presented on April 26th at the “ACES Comes to School: Strategies to Reduce Challenging Behaviors” workshop.

The ACE (adverse childhood experiences) study confirms with scientific evidence that adversity during development increases the risk of physical, mental and behavioral problems later in life. The ACE Study and other research using the Study’s framework have taught us that ACEs are the leading cause of health and social problems in our nation – the most powerful determinant of the public’s health. Toxic stress during childhood can impact brain development and brain interaction with body systems and can result in negative behaviors. You see these behaviors and maladaptive coping skills every day in classrooms, hallways, and on the sidewalk. But childhood is a window of opportunity for building resilience – after all, the developing brain is sensitive to all kinds of experience. Learn about these patterns of brain development, the ACE study, our opportunities for ACE prevention, and how protective systems promote resilience in children, families and our community for more productive learning and safe, nurturing environments.

This training will include a viewing and discussion of the documentary “Paper Tigers”. “Paper

Tigers” follows a year in the life of an alternative high school that has radically changed its approach to disciplining its students, becoming a promising model for how to break the cycles of poverty, violence and disease that affect families.

Training provided by Anne McNelis, LCSW of Transitions Mental Health Services.

Training supported and endorsed by the Eastern Iowa – Western Illinois Trauma Informed Care Consortium.

This training naturally pairs well with “ACES Comes to School: Strategies to Reduce Challenging Symptoms in the School” as a follow up.

#11553 Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) Comes to School: Strategies to Reduce Challenging Symptoms in the School FOUNDATIONAL SERVICES FOR ALL 2.0

Who: All Teachers, Administrators, school social workers, counselors, psychologists, para-educators, nurses, and other professionals working with students & community

When: April 16, 2018  9:00 AM – 3:30 PM

Where: ROE Moline         

Cost:       $25.00                               PD Hours:  5.5

Presenters: Jennifer Best, MS Ed., CFLE, CFCS-HDFS, BCC

Outcomes and Description:
Attendance at the March 5th ROE workshop or similar ACES Interface Workshop is required to attend this workshop. When students have been exposed to traumatic events and situations, their neurodevelopment is altered in ways that impact their behavior, executive functioning and academic performance in school. These students often become our most challenging to serve and support. Building on the information in the ACE Interface training, this session will delve deeper into the neuro-psycho-social impact of trauma, and how these symptoms are exhibited in the classroom. Then, participants will explore a three-tiered approach for reducing symptoms and supporting healthy development. This approach will include practical tools for preventing traumatic symptoms through environmental and academic strategies, as well as evidence-based approaches to handling our own stress in order to make better connections with students who need it most. Taught by Jennifer Best, MS Ed., CFLE, CFCS-HDFS, BCC from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, participants will walk away with books, materials and hands-on tools that they can start implementing the day after the training.

Training supported and endorsed by the Eastern Iowa – Western Illinois Trauma Informed Care Consortium.
