Inquiry-Based Practice in Social Studies Education: C3 Framework @ Trader Duke’s Hotel, formally DoubleTree
Mar 14 – Mar 15 all-day

Facilitated by Dr. Kathy Swan

Dates: March 14 & 15, 2018; 8:30 registration 9:00-3:30 (light breakfast and lunch included)  Location: Trader Duke’s Hotel, formally DoubleTree

Target Audience: K-12 Social Studies Educator Teams, Principals and Curriculum Leaders

This 2-day, hands-on workshop is designed to familiarize educators with the C3 Framework through a curriculum design process called the Inquiry Design Model TM (IDM).IDM TM is a distinctive approach to creating instructional materials that honors teachers’ knowledge and expertise, avoids over-prescription, and focuses on the key elements envisioned in the C3 Inquiry Arc.

Unique to the IDM TM is the Blueprint TM, a one-page presentation of the questions, tasks, and sources that define a curricular inquiry. The Blueprint TM offers a visualsnapshot of an entire inquiry such that the individual components and the relationship among the components can all be seen at once. Workshop participants will work individually and with others to develop an inquiry on a topic of their choosing using the 10-step design path. Participants should walk away with a solid understanding of social studies inquiry and how inquiry unfolds in the classroom.

Dr. Ross Greene: Advanced Training in Collaborative & Proactive Solutions @ Trader Duke’s Hotel, formally DoubleTree
Apr 5 – Apr 6 all-day

Advanced Training in Collaborative & Proactive Solutions: Understanding and Helping Behaviorally Challenging Students

A 2-day Institute with Dr. Ross Greene

Dates: April 5 & 6, 2018; 8:30 registration 9:00-3:30 (light breakfast and lunch included) LocationTrader Duke’s Hotel, formally DoubleTree

Dr. Ross Greene’s evidence-based, empirically-supported CPS model – as described in his books Lost at School and Lost & Found — has a track record for dramatically reducing discipline referrals, detentions, and suspensions, improving student behavior, and improving relationships and communication. The model represents a shift away from modifying behaviors and toward solving the problems that are causing that behavior. And the problem solving is collaborative and proactive rather than unilateral and reactive. It’s the future of school discipline…but it’s happening already in countless schools across the world.

Participants in this workshop will leave with an understanding of the underpinnings of the model, along with practical assessment and intervention tools that can be brought back to their schools.

Day One:
Key Themes
The Assessment of Lagging Skills and Unsolved Problems (ALSUP)
Practice and Feedback: Using the ALSUP
Overview of The Three Plans

Day Two:
Overview of Plan B
Plan B Video, Practice, and Feedback
Implementation in Schools and with Nonverbal Youth
Conclusion

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

• Describe how different explanations for and interpretations of challenging behavior in kids can lead to dramatically different approaches to intervention, and why conventional reward and punishment procedures may not be effective for many challenging kids.
• Identify and assess the various cognitive skills that are central to adaptively handling life’s social, emotional, and behavioral challenges
• Identify and prioritize unsolved problems precipitating challenging behavior
• Describe the three basic mechanisms by which adults handle unsolved problems and unmet expectations in kids (Plans A, B, and C) and what is accomplished by each, and the three steps or “ingredients” of Plan B
• Describe how to effectively implement Plan B to solve problems, teach skills, and reduce the frequency and intensity of challenging behavior

*fee includes the book:  Lost & Found: Helping Behaviorally Challenging Students
