Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts (Online Workshop)

Description:

When you and I were growing up, the words Trojans, worms, viruses and spam had considerably different meanings than they do today. We took a pole and went out fishing, but today we encounter phishing expeditions and electronic bait trying to hook us. We are victimized by spyware, adware, and malware of all types. These electronic parasites can be sucking your personal data and affecting the performance of your computer. This workshop will give you a better understanding of these dangers and introduce strategies on how you can deal with them.

Connecting Phonics First® to the Common Core (Online Version)

Description:

Connecting Phonics First® to the Common Core                           
Target Group: All teachers trained in the Phonics First® Foundations program.
Prerequisite:  Completion of Phonics First® Beginnings, Basic or Foundations Level I.

During the Connecting Phonics First® to the Common Core workshop, teachers look at the decoding and fluency-related standards of the common core and determine the Phonics First® instructional components that ensure success for beginning, struggling, at-risk, ELL and LD students.

DESCRIPTION:
The adoption of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) means schools must immediately and rapidly gear-up struggling readers. The demands of the CCSS' higher-level comprehension skills require students employ accurate decoding and fluent reading in order to be able to comprehend increasingly complex text. Consistent implementation of specific Phonics First® strategies in the classroom and intervention settings allows teachers to accurately target specific skill-deficits and to support and strengthen student decoding and fluency.

During the Connecting Phonics First® to the Common Core workshop, teachers look at the decoding and fluency-related standards of the common core and determine the Phonics First® instructional components that ensure success for beginning, struggling, at-risk, ELL and LD students. Teachers will then review and practice strategy implementation for classroom and small-group instruction at the prevention, intervention and remediation levels. Workshop will also include an introduction to Reciprocal  Teaching, a powerful tool for deepening comprehension through a process of clarifying, questioning, summarizing and predicting.

Dyslexia 2: Building on What We Already Know

Description:

Dyslexia, the most recognized of reading problems, is a neurological disorder that is often characterized by difficulties in recognizing and decoding words, leading to lower comprehension and fluency. Although there is no exact count, it is estimated that one in ten people may be afflicted with some form of Dyslexia.

Legislation on Dyslexia signed in August 2014 prominently recognized Dyslexia in state statute and regulation, mandating a requirement for districts to pro-actively deal with this disability. A definition of Dyslexia is now written into Special Education code and a yearly 2-hour professional development requirement for Dyslexia is now mandated for all teachers in grades pre-K through grade 3, special education, reading and ESL teachers, reading specialists, learning disabilities teacher consultants, and speech-language specialists.

Participants should already have had a preliminary workshop on Dyslexia such that they have a general knowledge about the legislation, definition, warning signs, and characteristics of Dyslexia. This 2-hour training will provide participants with information about specific teaching strategies and techniques used to work with students with Dyslexia, as well as additional information about its characteristics, use of technology, and screening.

Audience: All K-12 Educators

Dyslexia I, Online Course

Description:

This online workshop is intended for educators to provide an overview of Dyslexia.

Dyslexia, the most recognized of reading problems, is a neurological disorder that is often characterized by difficulties in recognizing and decoding words, leading to lower comprehension and fluency. Although there is no exact count, it is estimated that one in ten people may be afflicted with some form of dyslexia.

Governor Christie signed legislation that, for the first time, prominently recognizes dyslexia in state statute and regulation, making it a requirement for districts to deal with this disability. A definition of dyslexia must now be specifically written into special education code and a yearly 2-hour professional development requirement for dyslexia is now mandated for all teachers in grades pre-K through grade 3, special education, reading and ESL teachers, reading specialists, learning disabilities teacher consultants, and speech-language specialists.

This 2-hour (time varies per participant) webinar will provide participating administrators, pre-K to 3 educators, Special Education supervisors, and Child Study Team members with detailed information about this legislation, citing the specificity and requisites that impact the governance and operation of all school districts in New Jersey. The impact that the law will have on special education programs, as well as the specific components that must be included in the required training, will be reviewed during the online course.

What Every Teacher (and Student) Should Know About Coding

Description:

Do you teach coding or plan to? Want to do the Hour-of-Code with your students but you are not sure where to start? This workshop is for you. Weather you use drag-and-drop applications like code.org or straight coding with Javascript, the logic is the same in all languages.

Writing and the Visual Arts at The Noyes Museum of Art

Description:

A New Teacher’s Workshop – Writing and the Visual Arts
An intensive and information-rich workshop for K – 12 art educators, artists, and writers

Designed to instruct on how art can transform students’ writing and improve literacy, this workshop explores the relationship between the visual arts and language. It will consider how  K-12 visual art and language arts teachers can collaborate, using art to generate creative writing in the classroom and using literature to inspire artworks. Viewing fine art can inspire young students to discover their creative talents. Explore the interconnection of writing and the visual arts. So often excluded from the core curriculum, the visual arts can aid in the acquisition and honing of strong writing skills.

The workshop will revisit the ancient tradition of ekphrasis--vivid, written descriptions of works of visual art--and how it can be a tool for developing and sharpening students' writing skills as well as nurturing empathy, attentiveness, and observational abilities. Ekphrasis allows the visual arts to collaborate with language arts and thus regain their essential role in human knowledge. Participants will be introduced to the history and practice of ekphrasis and will engage in writing, sketching, and empathy activities in the Noyes Museum galleries, stimulating new interdisciplinary ideas and collaborations among teachers.

Workshop topics will include:
- Visual presentation with lecture, examples of methods, and projects
- Exercises in empathy, embodiment, and close-looking through consideration of art in the Noyes galleries
- Interpretation: Observation, sketching in the galleries, writing, and discussion
- Reference materials: Information, resources, lessons, and exercises for the classroom will be provided.

This workshop is for teachers working at all levels and across disciplines. No previous experience with art making is necessary. Teachers will use simple and accessible materials to work on productive exercises. The content and activities of this workshop meet with national standards and are widely applicable throughout the K-12 curriculum. This is an enjoyable workshop and a great opportunity to gather new ideas for enriching the curriculum in the classroom, try some creative art and writing activities, and meet other teachers. Light morning refreshments & lunch included.

Suicide Prevention and Awareness

Description:

A suicide death is devastating to survivors.  There always remains the question “Why?”, and frequently those left behind are slow to recover, their lives changed forever.  Suicide, a public health issue, is generally preventable.  Research has given us great understanding about risk and protective factors, as well as warning signs and what to do when we are concerned about someone’s safety. 

This workshop will focus on youth suicide in children and young adults between the ages of 10 and 24.  The greater our understanding, the more effective we become in prevention.  And if a suicide does occur, responding in a proper way will minimize the possibility of another death or deaths.  The session is designed to enhance awareness among educators and others who have a presence in the lives of these children and young adults. 

Presented by George Scott, EdS, LMFT:  George Scott is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist at the Center for Counseling in Mercer County, and an adjunct faculty member at The College of New Jersey.
