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.

Light and Shadow: Chiaroscuro-Finding a Light in the Darkness at The Noyes Museum of Art

Description:

Light and Shadow: Chiaroscuro-Finding a Light in the Darkness

Chiaroscuro, Italian for light-dark, is a term used to describe the use of bold contrasts between light and dark areas in an artwork. In this workshop, Tony Shore will discuss his artwork on exhibit in the museum and give a brief history of painters (often known as the candle light painters) that used contrasted light and shadow relationships to create volume and dimension within their work.

Topics will include:
- A brief history of chiaroscuro painting & its effect on popular culture including film & photography
- Understanding gradation in relation to edges
- Using light and shadow to create composition
- Building volume and form through light

Shore will demonstrate how to accomplish these chiaroscuro effects through painting and drawing exercises using a variety of media. The techniques will use inexpensive materials appropriate for the K-12 classroom. Teachers will take part in hands-on projects that are easily translated to the classroom setting. This workshop is for teachers working at all levels. No previous experience with art making is necessary.

The content and activities of this workshop meet with national standards and are widely applicable throughout the K-12 curriculum. The hands-on art activities will serve the needs of students of all levels. This is an enjoyable workshop and a great opportunity to gather new ideas for enriching the curriculum in the classroom, try some creative art activities, and meet other teachers.

An Introduction to Transition Planning

Description:

The completion of high school is the beginning of adult life. Entitlement to public education ends, and young people and their families are faced with many options and decisions about the future. The most common choices for the future are pursuing vocational training or further academic education, getting a job, and living independently.

For students with disabilities, these choices may be more complex and may require a great deal of planning. Planning the transition from school to adult life begins, at the latest, during high school. In fact, transition planning is required, by law, to start once a student reaches 14 years of age, or younger, if appropriate.

In this half-day workshop we will discuss the essentials of transition planning including: technical aspects, key questions, strategies, post secondary goals, SOP's, and a timeline for implementation.  Participants will receive a clear understanding of what a district needs to know to ensure compliance. The workshop is structured such that participants will be able to turn-key information with colleagues the next day. Attendees will have time at the end of the session for a Q&A, and to collaborate with professionals from other districts.

Dyslexia, Understanding the Mandate - AM Session

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. 

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 two hour training 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 session. Participants will have ample opportunity to ask questions.
