#11698 Exploring Evidence-Based Practices for Advanced Learners and Refining District Practices and Procedures for Advanced Learners

With the recent Accelerated Placement Act and Report Card Act legislation, districts must now have policy and procedures in place to support the gifted and potentially gifted student.  Our speaker, Jeanine Buishas, is returning to assist classroom teachers, teachers of the gifted, and administrators as they explore evidence-based practices specifically for advanced learners.  These strategies will provide classrooms with a Multi-tiered System of Support (MTSS) to meet the needs of all learners.

The afternoon provides a supportive time for sharing and questions with a knowledgeable facilitator regarding your districts work and future needs.

This workshop will include:

Morning: Exploring Evidence-Based Practices for Advanced Learners
Teachers often have a plethora of differentiation strategies in their instructional toolbox. This interactive workshop will focus on those that are most effective for supporting the academic, social, and emotional growth of gifted learners. Research and resources will be provided to enhance curriculum and instruction in varied classroom settings.

Afternoon: Refining District Practices and Procedures for Advanced Learners
Provides a supportive time for sharing and questions with a knowledgeable facilitator regarding your districts work and future needs. Facilitated networking session – District teams are invited to collaborate with other educators to share procedures and programming aligned to meeting the needs of advanced learners.

#11699 Building Resiliency in our Students and Staff

Over 200 educators attended our Adverse Childhood Trauma (ACEs) workshops with Jen Best and Anne McNelis last year. Jen and Anne are back.  They will be moving us forward and teaching us how to build resiliency in children AND adults (reducing professional burnout!)

During the morning session, Jen will address building resiliency in our students:
Resilience is defined as the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress.  When children are resilient, they are better able to make sense of difficult situations, build healthier relationships, regulate emotions more effectively, and experience control over their lives.  Even in the face of adverse childhood experiences, individuals can learn the skills to become more resilient. Adults in a child’s life can develop environments that correlate to resilience, and engage children in experiences and activities that build resilience.  This workshop will focus on what research tells us about how resilience develops, the role of protective factors in resilient individuals, and strategic ways to support children as they learn to become more resilient.

During the afternoon session Anne will concentrate on developing resiliency in adults and their specific needs:
This portion of the workshop will cover the concepts of professional burnout vs. vicarious trauma, recognizing the signs and manifestations, how to prevent it/reduce/address it; and the importance of self-care on an individual level and how to build in self-care and resiliency within the school culture.
