         Classroom Behavior Fixes

    Preventing Challenging Behaviors by Incorporating Tier 1 Strategies Within Your Classroom

                 with presenters: Danielle Gonyea & Amanda Wilson                                 3 sessions (1.5 hour duration each session)

    When:  March 6, March 23, April 6, 2023  

    Time:  2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. (Pacific Time) (Live On Zoom)

    Institute Description: 

    Learn supports to establish clear classroom structure which is often overlooked or implemented with weak fidelity resulting in increased challenging behaviors.  Participants will learn the rationale behind focusing on effectively implementing these low-cost, high-efficacy supports to minimize challenging behaviors and the need for more intensive interventions at the tier 2 and tier 3 levels.  Strategies to be taught include teaching and reviewing expectations and routines, precorrection, behavior-specific praise, instructional choice, active supervision, and active student response methods.  Finally, participants will learn how to effectively tie these strategies together within the context of an instructional block to increase student engagement.

    Session 1:  Why Build a Strong Core?

    Amanda Wilson and Danielle Gonyea are Co-Founders of Navigating Behavior Change.  Their primary goal is to assist educators in teaching and improving the lives of at-risk students who exhibit challenging behaviors.  We know that true, long-term behavior change requires the participation of a team of adults.  Therefore, we strive to provide high-quality support to teachers, administrators, school psychologist, behavior analysts, and other service providers.  Both began their careers in the classroom and soon found behavior analysis as a solution to classroom learning issues.

    Session 2:  High-Efficacy Strategies

    Experience an overview of proper implementation of low-cost, high-efficacy tier 1 supports.  Participants will learn the core steps to implementation of the following strategies.  Teaching expectations and routines, utilizing precorrection, behavior-specific praise, instructional choice, active supervision, and active student response methods.  Instructional downloads of these strategies will also be provided to participants to further reference.

    Session 3:  Putting it All Together

    Participants will learn to organize and embed reviews of expectations, precorrection, behavior-specific praise, active supervision, and active student response methods effectively within the context of an instructional block.  This will be taught via description (downloadable outline) and demonstration (modeling within the session).

                  Getting Integrated MTSS Right                        with presenters Clay Cook, Ph.D & Megan Gruis, Ed.S                    

    When:  March 23, 2023  Webinar

    Time:  8:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. (Pacific Time)

    Institute Description: 

    Traditional Multi-Tiered Systems of Support models focus narrowly on a single aspect of children's well-being and functioning (e.g., academic); failing to ensure that each student receives what they need socially, emotionally, and academically.  

    Integrated MTSS(I-MTSS), on the other hand, is a holistic and comprehensive as it involves the careful integration a continuum of social-emotional, behavioral, and academic supports to ensure each student is able to access the experiences and supports they need to be well, engage fully in their learning experiences, and develop competencies that enable school and life success.  

    This webinar will provide strategies, tools, and resources founded in implementation science to support a Human-Centered Approach to Integrated MTSS Implementation in your system.

    Registration fee:  $75.00 per participant

       Getting Students Ready for Rigor the                            Culturally Responsive Way                                                         

    When:  April 24, 2023  Webinar

    Time:  6:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. (Pacific Time)

    Institute Description: 

    Using the Ready for Rigor Framework as our guide, this day-long session will focus on building teachers' capacity to coach students away from dependent learning toward cognitively independent learning.

    We will begin with a short, high-level overview of the key processes for getting students ready to take on more rigorous content or to accelerate literacy skills.  Then we will do a deep dive into four (4) key instructional moves to integrate into daily practice.

    Institute Description:

    Expected Outcomes:

    • Understand the algorithm for building student capacity with culturally responsive pedagogies based on the Ready for Rigor(R) frame.
    • Use collectiveist learning principles in order to make any instructional strategy more culturally responsive.
    • Implement at least two (2) classroom structures and/or instructional moves consistent with collectivist learning principles to prepare the learning environment and students for increased autonomy.
    • Increase productive struggle without trauma or stress for dependent learners using habit formation and behavior design while still supporting the growth of on-grade level students.
    • Create a 90-day plan for shifting instructional practices.
    Who Should Attend? 
    • Teachers, teacher-leaders, coaches, and leaders whose districts are working to integrate culturally responsive pedagogy into teaching and learning, but who want to see more impact on improving student learning at the classroom level.
    • Educators who have done the personal work on increasing their racial literacy, and have read all of the Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain  (not just excerpts).  Add a copy of the book "Culturally Responsive Teaching & the Brain" for $36.95 (each).  

    Educators at all grade levels.  We will address instruction at the early grades, upper grades, middle school and early high school (9th & 10th grade).
