CANCELED: Introduction to Universal Design for Learning
Jan 18 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Framework is a direct link in removing the barriers that our marginalized students face. It is found within the Every Student Succeeds Act as a means to provide flexible learning options to all students, and is a means of reaching Ohio’s One Goal of annually increasing the percentage of high school students who graduate, and one year later:

  • participate in some type of post-high school learning experience,
  • earn a living wage,
  • are enlisted in the military, or
  • are engaged in a meaningful vocation

 

Session 1 (for administrators only): We will set the stage for implementing the UDL framework in your school. Session goals:

    • define UDL and discuss why it is necessary
    • explore the components needed to support UDL implementation and prepare to apply it to your continuous improvement cycle
    • examine current structures to identify what supports are already in place, and areas that need strengthened
    • create action steps to operationalize UDL at the building level
    • discuss how to support teachers who are learning UDL and implementing it in their classrooms

The remaining sessions are for Building Leadership Teams (BLTs) and the administrator from Session 1.

Session 2: We will explore UDL together, examine its components and answer:

    • Why UDL?
    • What are the goals of the UDL framework?
    • How does growth mindset influence the implementation of UDL?
    • What are the characteristics of an expert learner?

Session 3: We will:

    • dig deep into the UDL framework
    • examine the connection between the UDL framework and Social Justice

Session 4: This session will set you up for success as we:

    • discuss what UDL looks like in practice
    • explore the UDL Practice Profile and identify areas that are currently in place
    • discover where to start and begin UDL implementation process at the classroom level

Understanding the How and Why of Sound Walls
Feb 4 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Discover why sound walls should replace word walls in the classroom to strengthen phonological and orthographic skills and explore effective ways to implement sound walls to benefit all children including English language learners and students with disabilities.

You will learn how to set up and effectively use a sound wall with the purpose of elevating daily Tier I instruction for all students by reviewing 44 speech sounds (including 18 vowel sounds) and providing spelling options for each sound. This daily review helps aromaticity in student ability to access the sounds and match spelling to each sound.

This one-day training is an extension of both the SST 1 Emergent Literacy Series and Heggerty professional learning courses.

Their book, Equity by Design uses the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework as a means and connection to develop inclusive and socially just classrooms.

In this book study, participants will discuss these relevant topics and learn practical applications for using the UDL framework. We will discuss removing barriers that affect the students we serve, and put our learning into practice to create a culturally responsive learning environment for all students. Participants will be asked to respond to reflection questions between each meeting.

CANCELED: Introduction to Universal Design for Learning
Mar 15 @ 9:00 am – 11:30 am

The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Framework is a direct link in removing the barriers that our marginalized students face. It is found within the Every Student Succeeds Act as a means to provide flexible learning options to all students, and is a means of reaching Ohio’s One Goal of annually increasing the percentage of high school students who graduate, and one year later:

  • participate in some type of post-high school learning experience,
  • earn a living wage,
  • are enlisted in the military, or
  • are engaged in a meaningful vocation

 

Session 1 (for administrators only): We will set the stage for implementing the UDL framework in your school. Session goals:

    • define UDL and discuss why it is necessary
    • explore the components needed to support UDL implementation and prepare to apply it to your continuous improvement cycle
    • examine current structures to identify what supports are already in place, and areas that need strengthened
    • create action steps to operationalize UDL at the building level
    • discuss how to support teachers who are learning UDL and implementing it in their classrooms

The remaining sessions are for Building Leadership Teams (BLTs) and the administrator from Session 1.

Session 2: We will explore UDL together, examine its components and answer:

    • Why UDL?
    • What are the goals of the UDL framework?
    • How does growth mindset influence the implementation of UDL?
    • What are the characteristics of an expert learner?

Session 3: We will:

    • dig deep into the UDL framework
    • examine the connection between the UDL framework and Social Justice

Session 4: This session will set you up for success as we:

    • discuss what UDL looks like in practice
    • explore the UDL Practice Profile and identify areas that are currently in place
    • discover where to start and begin UDL implementation process at the classroom level

Emergent Literacy Series
Mar 18 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

This series designed specifically for preschool staff will increase your knowledge and practice of emergent literacy strategies for children, birth through age five.

Part 1: Introduction to Emergent Literacy & Teaching Early Phonological Awareness
Gain a greater understanding of emergent literacy and the importance of developing phonological awareness skills in young children. Participants will:

  • explore the role of each lobe of the brain in the development of the “reading brain”
  • learn the components of phonological processing and its contributions to early literacy development
  • begin to understand the sequences of development in the areas of rhyming, alliteration, blending, and segmenting
  • gain instructional strategies to facilitate development of phonological awareness skills

 

Part 2: Developing Oral Language & Vocabulary for Emergent Literacy
In this session, we will focus specifically on developing oral language and vocabulary skills in young children. Upon completion of this training, you will:

  • understand the significance of oral language as a component of emergent literacy
  • plan for explicit and intentional instruction to develop oral language skills in young children
  • identify and explain the three tiers, or levels of vocabulary in text
  • demonstrate instructional strategies, aligned with brain research, to build vocabulary and oral language

 

Part 3: Building Print Awareness through Interactive Read-Alouds
The final session is centered on using read-alouds as a strategy for building print awareness skills in young children. Content is focused on:

  • understanding why print knowledge is important for emergent and early literacy
  • identifying the four dimensions of print knowledge
  • using books to develop print awareness and knowledge at the preschool level
  • accessing materials to aid in classroom, library, or home implementation of print referencing techniques
  • identifying and distinguishing books for shared reading to teach components of emergent literacy

Understanding the How and Why of Sound Walls
Mar 29 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Discover why sound walls should replace word walls in the classroom to strengthen phonological and orthographic skills and explore effective ways to implement sound walls to benefit all children including English language learners and students with disabilities.

You will learn how to set up and effectively use a sound wall with the purpose of elevating daily Tier I instruction for all students by reviewing 44 speech sounds (including 18 vowel sounds) and providing spelling options for each sound. This daily review helps aromaticity in student ability to access the sounds and match spelling to each sound.

This one-day training is an extension of both the SST 1 Emergent Literacy Series and Heggerty professional learning courses.
