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.

Classroom Management in an Inclusive Classroom: Creating a Supportive, Cooperative Environment with High Expectations (PreK-5)

Two-Day Mini-Institute

This two-day mini-institute focuses on building inclusive, nurturing classroom environments with high expectations. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to surface their strengths and weaknesses in various areas of classroom management and vote on topics they wish to take a deeper dive into.  This will allow the workshop to be differentiated for participants in the room.

Topics may include:

  • Executive Functioning
  • Understanding the Impact of Trauma on Learning and Behavior
  • Social Thinking
  • Adapting the Classroom Environment to Meet the Needs of All Students (movement breaks, mindfulness, seating arrangements, grouping)
  • Data Collection (frequency, latency, duration and interval recording)
  • De-escalation
  • In-the-Moment Strategies for Handling challenging behavior

Educators will leave after Day 1 of this series with new tools in their toolkit, a specific action plan, and self-selected homework to try in their own school. When returning for Day 2 in the series, we will take the time to share successes, brainstorm solutions to challenges, and continue to learn about the remaining topics. By the end of this institute, participants will return to their schools with new confidence, skills, and research related to why students behave the way they do and how adults can support them to become more productive, better regulated members of the classroom community.

Collaboration in Classrooms with More Than One Adult (PreK-12)

Two-Day Mini-Institute

This mini-institute will strengthen collaborative relationships for teacher teams of all types by helping them plan for student-centered learning within their instruction. This workshop will help special educators, general educators, coaches planning with teachers, and ELL teachers who work together with the same group of students by reflecting on adult strengths and cultivating norms for effective communication, enabling all adults to be engaged in collaborative planning. Participants will develop interventions, co-supports, accommodations, and modifications best suited for their students’ needs, and learn when and how to embed them within their instructional practice. The workshop will include interactive role play, analysis of co-teaching videos from New York City classrooms, and examples of interventions. Participants will also engage in collaborative planning and receive coaching within their school team during the workshop. Pyramid planning, backward planning, and utilizing service providers (speech, OT, PT) will also be discussed. Teachers will receive examples of visually concise weeklong and daily lesson plans for classrooms with more than one adult.

Appropriate for educators in grades 6-12.

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.

Shaking Up the Classroom: Multi-Level Instruction and Curriculum Adaptations (PreK-12)

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.

Using Technology to Support UDL Instruction (PreK-12)

One-Day Workshop

This workshop focuses on using the right technologies well to facilitate classroom learning for all students.  Throughout the day we will consider the questions: What technologies do we already have in our classroom that can open access to educational experiences for our students? What technologies can we bring into our classrooms that can change and support the way we teach and the way our students learn? How can we thoughtfully learn and integrate these technologies into our classroom in a sustainable and inclusive way?

  • 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!
