    Creating a Learning Culture:  Learning to Learn

    Virtual On Demand for 30 days 

    When:  Monday, September 27, 2021 -  7:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (PT)

    Description: 

    During the pandemic, we have all realized just how important it is to have efficacious learners who are armed with the skills and attitudes necessary to take charge of their own learning.  With the right tools and strategies, we can all create a culture that is focused on the learner experience and the development of expert learners.  This session will provide strategies and frameworks to teach students how to learn as well as what to learn.

    Key Outcomes:  

    • Deepening students' learning with improved questioning techniques
    • Creating a culture in which students talk positively about learning how to Learn
    • Teaching students how to learn, including questioning, reflection, and thinking skills
    • Encouraging the social and emotional behaviors your students will need to grow into expert learners

    After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information for the Virtual On Demand content.

    "The Invisible Backpack:  Meeting Students

    in the Moment"

    When:  Tuesday, September 28, 2021 -  2:30 p.m.-5:30 p.m. (Pacific time) 

    Description: 

    This workshop is designed to provide paraprofessionals with an understanding of the importance of meeting each student in midst of the moment.  Throughout the COVID pandemic, many students and staff members have experienced personal and unprecedented traumatic events.  

    Additionally, many students who are eligible for paraprofessional support often present with challenging behaviors.  Through anecdotes, current research and reflection opportunities, participants will explore the adversity that students may be experiencing in order to recognize the human being behind the behavior.  

    Participants learn how to use their own social emotional learning (SEL) skills to reinforce positive behavior as they collaborate with teachers to address interrupted learning and provide intentional, equitable and restorative student support.

    After registering, you will receive a confirmation email.

    Michelle Trujillo, professional learning facilitator, author, and advocate for hope for an engaging virtual experience.  Michelle's keynote presentations and educational workshops leave audiences encouraged, empowered and ready to put ideas and strategies into practice!

Michael Fullan returns with an eminently readable, compelling, and practical guide on the three habits of nuance:  joint determination, adaptability, and culture-based accountability.

    Leveling Up Learning:  School Transformation to Increase Instructional Rigor


    March 8, 2022 - Session 1

    April 5, 2022 - Session 2

    May 10, 2022 - Session 3

    TNTP's Opportunity Myth report(2018), states that serious barrier to improving student outcomes was the lack of grade level materials students could access.  In addition to this barrier, there is a significant number of students who are not ready to take on more rigorous content.

    In this series, we will look at what it takes to translate one's vision for more rigorous instruction into reality.  What does this require from you as a leader so new practices take root?

    We will work through the pedagogical and social shifts necessary for a school to become one that has a blueprint for helping every student find academic success regardless of zip code, racial, or linguistic background.

    March 8, 2022 at 03:30 PM (PT) - Session  1
