This is Just the Beginning:

Being Culturally Responsive

 

Mandy Manning

2018 National Teacher of the Year,

Washington State Teacher of the Year

Connections, compassion, empathy, and acceptance are foundational qualities for learning. This course will challenge participants to explore their own experiences and social groups and how they shape perceptions and impact classroom connections. We will explore the cross-section of awareness and knowledge with cultural responsiveness and how these elements affect building relationships with students. Finally, we will apply this knowledge to classroom practice.

Social and Emotional Learning

 

Jonathan Juravich

National Teacher of the Year Finalist

Social and Emotional Learning practices can be infused into all areas of education and become common practice in all classrooms and content areas. In so many ways this may simply be a re-framing of the great work that is already happening in our classrooms, to support the individual needs of our students as they learn what it means to be human. Explore approaches to discussions, activities, and the proposed Ohio standards for Social and Emotional Learning through a creative lens.

Being Wrong Has Never Felt So Right

 

Darbie Valenti

2017 Missouri Teacher of the Year

While we discuss our students’ physical and social safety, there’s very little focus on intellectual safety. Engaging all students requires making learning accessible to them in inclusive environments. Create more equitable learning experiences by developing low-floor, high-ceiling tasks that promote intellectual safety and truly develop growth mindsets in our students.

Creating school environments that empower all students — regardless of race, gender, religion, or ability level—  to thrive requires changes to both systems and instruction. In this session, leaders will unpack blind spots in their policies and curriculum that may lead to inequitable practices. Participants will explore resources that support school leaders to address inequities in their schools and leave with an action plan for implementing equitable practices in their schools.

I heard so many great comments about it and how much people would like to have this continued.  An example of one of these comments was, "I feel so much more confident in what my purpose is." I think it was great for everyone to be able to learn about teacher leadership together!" -District Instructional Facilitator to a participant of the Fall Facilitation Academy 2018
