Why Does This Student Have Problem Behavior?

Come Learn How Functional Behavior Assessments Hold the Answer!
 
Presenter:  Mandi Rispoli
 
“Why does this student keep acting out?” “Their behavior happens out of the blue.” “I've tried everything and they keep engaging in problem behavior!” Persistent student challenging behavior often leads school personnel to make statements like these.

 

Functional behavior assessments hold the answers to these questions. A functional behavior assessment helps us understand why problem behaviors happen and forms a critical link to behavior support plans. Decades of research shows that the best way to reduce student challenging behavior is to conduct a high-quality functional behavior assessment.

 

This active workshop will take participants on a deep dive into the functional behavior assessment process. Through case studies, video examples, and active discussion, participants will learn how to conduct thorough and informative functional behavior assessments and how to link the results to effective and efficient behavior support plans.

Building Effective Leaders (Series of 7)
Virtual: 4:00-4:45 pm EST
 

Presenter:  Kevin Dill
 

Leadership is a complex formative and developmental process - replete with periods of success and inevitable stumbles. Current and emerging leaders want ideas and actions that will help them bridge the gap of stepping into positions of challenge and responsibility to becoming confident and respected difference-makers. Within leadership - certain challenges, needed skills, and even pitfalls are predictable, allowing us to study how effective leaders approach situations to create influence and impact. The ideas and actions explored within this seven-part series are drawn from exciting research of leadership development, empirical investigation, and most powerfully - the insights from the study of exemplary leaders. The points of view that are presented have evolved from working with and coaching hundreds of leaders - capturing the reality of critical leadership skills needed to navigate through situations and insights gained from experiences of success and failures.

How Do We Play Fact Fluency Games When Kids Can't Share Materials?

 
Presenter:  Ryan Flessner
 

Participants in this session will learn a variety of games to help students learn their basic math facts. Although, traditionally, these games are taught with paper gameboards and physical materials (dice, two color counters, playing cards, etc.), participants will learn to transfer these games to digital environments. In doing so, kids can play games together as they sit 6 feet apart, from across the classroom, or from home after they leave our classrooms. We'll discuss ways that the pandemic has shifted our thinking in relation to online spaces and the benefits of technology in teaching fact fluency games.

Whoa, That is Deep: Curiosity, Primary Sources, Literacy and Depth of Knowledge 

 
Presenter:  Colleen Huxford-Kinnett
 

Getting students to think deeply and critically is a challenge.                             What if we could find a way to help students build these crucial                           skills without their even realizing what we are doing.  Could                                   capturing curiosity be a key?  See how simple a 3-step process of                         evaluating primary sources does just that, and just might spark

your creativity about how to use this process with other things

and in other ways.  Along the way, we are also encouraging

literacy, visual literacy in particular.  Learn where to fine primary

sources, how to use them, and how to get students to engage.      

Come explore ways to connect Young Adult literature to primary

sources, to support ELA standards, to bolster higher-order

thinking skills and to revie some of those forgotten and

overlooked titles on our shelves.

Empowering Students to Realize their Academic Potential 
 
Presenter: Jim Kestner

We all teach students with wide ranging ability. And while we focus much attention on differences, a characteristic many students share is falling short of their academic potential.  Nationally recognized for his work with educators and students, Jim Kestner takes a fun and creative approach that equips teachers to empower students by 1) Recognizing the reasons behind student's lack of performance  and 2) Applying strategies that not only improve achievement, but also count the factors that have stood in students' paths so far.  Research-based approaches will help teachers empower students to become more self-directed learners who set goals, improve study skills, maximize retention from textbook reading, take effective notes, manage time, organize for success, become better test takers, balance sports, activities, and academics and tackle large long-term projects.
