Workshop 2-Essential Strategies/Tools for Meeting the Needs of Students with Deficits in Attention and Executive Function - 7-12
An increasing number of students come to the classroom with very obvious characteristics of deficits in attention and executive functions.  In this interactive workshop we will explore the brain research, identify hidden characteristics and implications of these deficits for learners, and determine how this information can be integrated into any classroom.  Teachers will learn strategies that can transform lesson planning and student focus, memory, and production.  Students can learn techniques to be more attentive, organized and intentional as they complete assignments.  We will also highlight the importance of metacognition and how it helps students take control of their learning.  Teachers will be provided ideas for teaching metacognition and age-appropriate metacognitive tools to your students.  Multiple tools, strategies, and resources will be shared.

9:00am EDT

Workshop 1- Talking to Youth About Heated Topics
Young people bear witness to challenging or traumatic events in current events, media, and our local communities. They are often trying to process thoughts, feelings, and reactions without our explicit help and guidance - thereby increasing their confusion and anxiety. We adults have a natural instinct to protect our children from harsh realities and yet prepare them to navigate this complex world - is it possible to do both? What are ways to talk about identity, difference, and justice in age appropriate ways? How do you reinforce your family's values without instilling disrespect for other perspectives? How do you coach them toward authentic and respectful dialogue across difference? Engage in these questions and more through this interactive session.
