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.

Wilson Just Words® – A Two Day Program

Description:

Wilson is a provider of research-based reading and spelling programs for all ages. Its multisensory, structured curricula - Fundations®, Wilson Just Words®, and the Wilson Reading System®, have been proven highly effective.

With Wilson, the path to meeting literacy objectives is all mapped out. The best way to achieve literacy success is to identify the individual student’s needs and then implement the correct teaching strategy. Each model differs in practice, intensity, and duration, but all have been designed to help students master the appropriate level of literacy.

Just Words® is a highly explicit, multisensory decoding and spelling program for students in grades 4–12 and adults who have mild to moderate gaps in their decoding and spelling proficiency but do not require intensive intervention. The program is designed for students with below-average decoding and spelling scores and should be combined with other literature-rich programs.

Just Words aligns with a school or district’s Multi-tiered System of Supports (MTSS) or Response to Intervention (RTI) framework of instruction by delivering a Tier 2 intervention addressing a sophisticated study of word structure with explicit teaching of “how English works” for both decoding and spelling automaticity. It is designed for students who can benefit from the targeted word study focus without requiring the more comprehensive intervention of the Wilson Reading System®. 

Please note:
- Lunch will be provided at each program.
- SRI&ETTC POOL Hours may not be used for registration at these programs.

Effective and Beyond: Best Practices for Teachers of Students with ADHD

Description:

Students with ADHD want to do well and succeed in school. They don’t want to be consistently inconsistent in their daily performance. Yet, poor performance is a predictable result for students who struggle with inattention, impulsivity, hyperactivity, disorganization, forgetfulness, losing things, restlessness, and emotional reactivity. 
These challenges often impair the student’s motivation and the resiliency needed to keep trying through adversity.

As many teachers know, the challenges created by ADHD can impact the performance of an entire classroom. Fortunately, the educational interventions used for ADHD are best practices that have a positive effect on most classroom environments and student performance.

Participants will gain knowledge and skills in:

- Understanding ADHD and the “why” behind the performance problems.

- Recognizing the educator’s role in prevention and intervention.

- Working with strategies that manage ADHD-related problems.

- Managing reactions and other behavioral difficulties.

- Learn how to teach students to use “If-Then” goals.

Workshop will be presented by Mary Fowler
Ms. Fowler trains educational staff on effective strategies for working with students with behavioral, social, and emotional issues. She specializes in ADHD and related disorders, traumatic stress, and childhood adversity. She is the author of numerous books and articles on ADHD and related disorders.  She frequently contributes to the NJEA Review and the ASCD Express. A former NJ educator, Ms. Fowler has been training educators and parents for over twenty-five years.
