#11542 The Growth Mindset and Teaching GRIT

Two Interesting Topics one great day of professional Learning!  “Mindset by Carol Dweck presents the “growth mindset” as the most essential element of success and happiness in life.  A growth mindset is a perspective on life in which we find validation from internal growth rather than external rewards:  Who we become is what we take forward forever.”

“Through extensive research, Angela Duckworth and her team have proven that the common denominator among spelling bee finalists, successful West Point cadets, salespeople and teachers who not only stick with, but improve in their performance is grit.”

This two-part workshop will first- focus on how do we instill a growth mindset in our students, AND how we as teachers can promote a growth mindset with in our classrooms. The key is looking at how we frame success, and the language we use to do so.  It doesn’t require doing more, just an adjustment to how we already do things.

Second, this workshop will focus on a learned personality trait known as grit. Those who have this trait are able to perseverance toward a goal despite being confronted by obstacles and distractions.  Participants will learn strategies that will help teachers model and teach grit.

#11541 Makerspaces/Genius Hour

Two hot topics one workshop!!!

 

A makerspace is a place where students can gather to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials.” (Diana Rendina)Looking for a NEW idea? This maybe just what you are looking for- Come learn about the Maker Movement sweeping the educational world! This workshop is for those who are interested in what a Makerspace is and what it can look like within a school setting. A Makerspace can be simple or it can be elaborate.   Participants will explore Makerspaces and the research that supports them.

Genius hour is an instructional strategy that allows students to be creative and explore topics of their choice is a guided learning environment. Genius hour allows student choice in what they learn during a set period of time within a classroom environment.

The idea of Genius hour grew out of a practice used by Google. “Google, allows its engineers to spend 20% of their time to work on any pet project that they want.  The idea behind this is very simple.  Allow people to work on something that interest them, and productivity will go up.  Google’s policy has worked so well that it has been said that 50% of Google’s projects have been created during this creative time period.” (Chris Kesler, Genius Hour)

Resources and ideas will be shared for those who hope to start a Makerspace or a Genius Hour within their classroom or school.

#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.

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

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.
