Working With Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students
In order to address the specific language -based learning needs of English Language Learners, educators need to develop instructional skills to facilitate effective learning experiences that are culturally sensitive, support language development and are rigorous. Sheltered Instruction is the most widely-recognized research-based approach in the field of second language education and the theoretical cornerstone for this course. This methodology has also proven to be highly effective with all struggling learners, not just those for whom English is a new language.
Integrating Social and Emotional Learning with Reading and Writing to Support Students in Expressing Themselves
We want our students to develop self-agency, communication and social awareness skills. SEL( Social and Emotional Learning) should be interwoven into our teaching and learning organically and systemically. In this workshop, participants will learn how to integrate the 5 SEL sub-competencies across reading and writing
Curating “A Wonder of Learning” Culture for Your Students
Are you a master teacher yearning to expand yourself in your work? Or are you a new teacher who is eager and curious to bring authentic, organic learning into your classroom? Finding the balance between our passions of teaching and the goals of standard based learning is an intricate dance. Yes, it can be accomplished through the balance of rigor and play and ultimately joy for all. In this workshop, we will explore how to construct a classroom that fosters creativity, curiosity, autonomy and thinking.
Playing to Learn ~ Learning to Play Preschoolers
Developmentally appropriate practices for young children are all about PLAY. Play is the work of children and there are stages and types of play that children engage in.
During this interactive workshop, educators of young children will:
Full STEAM Ahead in PreK/Kindergarten
Discover how to develop learning activities that incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) under the umbrella of inquiry instruction. Develop learning experiences that are hands on and support critical thinking, problem solving and reflection within the early childhood classroom.
Embedding Diversity into Your PreK Classroom
All students have the right to a high-quality learning experience. Discover ways to embed diversity into your classroom learning environment to provide a positive and supportive experience resulting in increased student outcomes. This workshop aligns with the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s position statement, Advancing Equity in Early Childhood Education.
Tiered System of Support in Early Childhood K-2
The multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) framework in early childhood pairs high quality learning with delivery of supports designed to meet the individual needs of students with and without disabilities. Discover how to address the learning needs of all your students regardless of eligibility status, cultural and linguistic background, or socioeconomic status to maximize outcomes.
Turning Challenging Behaviors in to Positive Relationships in PreK
Discover how to how create a classroom environment that is naturally designed to prevent challenging behaviors. What is the Pyramid Model?

Conversations about exploratory learning and explicit instruction should not be around OR, but rather WHEN. In this PD session, participants will learn when explicit instruction is the optimal choice for instruction and how to scaffold explicit instruction to more exploratory learning experiences.
When Life Gives You Math, You Make Mathematicians.
Everyone can learn mathematics. Teachers play a tremendous role in student success by appropriately scaffolding learning experiences. In this workshop teachers will learn how to differentiate mathematics instruction to support struggling learners, enrich advanced learners, and make the most of precious instructional time. Participants will leave the workshop with evidence-based strategies that can be implemented immediately and practices that will help teachers plan for long-term successes. The workshop is interactive, and participants will leave with resources that can be used in the classroom
