    As an educator we face the impact of trauma every day.  Do teachers on your campus realize that 1 out of every 4 children attending school has been exposed to a traumatic event?  Traumatic Experiences can impact academic outcomes in many ways including: higher absenteeism; increased suspension and/or expulsion; decreased ability to focus, organize and process information; and disruptions in memory, attention, problem solving and/or planning. Can your teachers recognize signs of trauma? Do they know how to respond to trauma and avoid re-traumatizing kids? This train the trainer course will give you the confidence and skills to replicate the course.  In addition you will receive  the full power point presentation, scripted facilitator notes, workbook materials, and additional resources to support content topics. 

     Cost: Free

    Registrations will not be accepted after 05/08/16.

    Depth of Knowledge plays a central role in the development of high-stakes tests, and can serve as a useful tool in classroom formative assessment as well. 

    Participants in this workshop will deepen their understanding of Depth of Knowledge, calibrate that understanding with colleagues, and design strategies to integrate Depth of Knowledge into instruction and formative assessment. 

    Time will also be devoted to systems planning, capturing DOK data, and differentiating assessments to measure the progress of all students. This program works best when schools send two or more participants, but individuals will also gain valuable insight.

Participants in this workshop will deepen their understanding of Depth of Knowledge, calibrate that understanding with colleagues, and design strategies to integrate Depth of Knowledge into instruction and formative assessment. Time will also be devoted to systems planning, capturing DOK data, and differentiating assessments to measure the progress of all students. This program works best when schools send two or more participants, but individuals will also gain valuable insight.

    Registrations will not be accepted after – 05/31/16

    Please note participants will be notified by email with any workshop updates.

    Resilience - Filing Children's Backpacks with the Tools and Support needed to overcome Adversity.

This course will give an overview of the research behind resilience and the role it plays in education.  Building resilience is more than teaching character education; it is setting a foundation which will allow character education curricula to be built upon.  Participants will leave with strategies of how to build resilience in their classrooms and throughout the campus.  

    The train-the-trainer session is ideal for school-based leadership teams. Participants will learn the content and be equipped with strategies and resources to train others.
