Challenging Behavior and Crisis Paraprofessionals (PreK-12)

One-Day Workshop

Are you a 1:1 Crisis Para or a paraprofessional that works with children that exhibit challenging behaviors? In this one-day workshop, we will examine how learning about the brain can help us better understand our students’ behavior and how we can become more effective at both preventing and de-escalating challenging behaviors at school. We will cover data collection to support FBA/BIP development; executive functioning; trauma and its effects on learning and behavior; calming exercises you can teach your students; and self-care to help relieve your own stress.

This workshop can be a great follow-up to “Paraprofessionals: Crucial Members of the Classroom Team” or a standalone day.

Math for Understanding and Access: Designing Performance Tasks for Diverse Learners (PreK-6)

Two-Day Mini-Institute

In this workshop, elementary educators will explore the features of conceptually rich mathematical performance tasks and work on designing a common-core aligned performance task for their own classroom. In the process, participants will explore different types of mathematical proficiency, try out examples of “group worthy” performance tasks, and identify task features that can increase access and engagement in classrooms with a diversity of learning needs.

Paraprofessionals: Crucial Members of the Classroom Team (PreK-12)

One-Day Workshop

Presented with Paraprofessionals from one of TCICP’s school sites: Teacher Assistants or Paraprofessionals are critical participants when creating classrooms that are inclusive of all students. This workshop is specifically designed for paraprofessionals/teacher assistants and the teachers with whom they are paired. This workshop will focus on how to support and encourage the engagement of children with IEPs in classroom activities, while simultaneously facilitating the student’s independence. The workshop will cover techniques for documenting children’s learning, communication structures between paraprofessionals and teachers, and supporting the classroom management routines of the teacher.

Supporting Developing Writers (PreK-5)

One-Day Workshop

This workshop is dedicated to showing participants inclusive writing practices for K-5 students. The day focuses on barriers that keep K-5 students from independently expressing themselves in writing and ways that teachers can address those barriers in their classrooms with specific practices. As a part of this workshop, tools and technologies that are easily accessible and support students in getting around common barriers will be explored. Participants should come ready to discuss writing dilemmas from their classes and share in collaborative problem-solving. Participants should bring laptops or tablets, if they have them.

Universal Design for Learning: Flexible Services, Accommodations, and Modifications One-Day Workshop (PreK-12) 

One-Day Workshop

Universal Design for Learning challenges educators to plan at the outset for students with a wide variety of abilities, learning preferences, and backgrounds. Participants will explore the principles of universal design and will begin to apply these principles to plan interdisciplinary curricula and instruction that reduce barriers to learning and support the diverse needs of a broad range of learners. We will explore planning for flexible services by creating meaningful instructional accommodations and modifications that support curricular engagement for students with IEPs.

  • Good Morning

    We would like two of our ICT teams to participate in your 2014-2015 workshops as well as two additional ICT teams to participate in your Inquiry to Action courses.

    Can you let us know when you'll post the information for the 2014-2015 academic year?

    Can you also provide a contact person for us to speak with concerning work orders?

    We participated in TCICP two years ago and loved it!

    Thank you
