#11840 Flocabulary

There is no better predictor for achievement across the curriculum than the size of a students’ vocabulary.” Since stumbling upon Flocabulary nine years ago, I’ve been amazed by its power to reach students from diverse backgrounds and transforms classroom culture.  In this training teachers will learn how to use Flocabulary by navigating video libraries, activities, assessments, and resources.  We will explore all of the content Flocabulary has to offer and teachers will leave feeling confident on how to use Flocabulary to meet the needs of all students!

Want something creative to build vocabulary, aligned to the standards, and that promotes the 21st century skills? This may be your answer.  It’s also a new opportunity to bring fun and purpose to your classroom instruction.

#11823 ACES II Comes to School: Strategies to Reduce Challenging Symptoms in School

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 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.

REQUIREMENT: Participants MUST have attend the prerequisite, ACE I- Interface: Understanding the impact of trauma on health, behavior and your role in building resiliency for positive student outcomes prior to attending this session. It has been offered many times at the ROE over the last 3 years.
