Understanding the IEP Process & Legal Issues
Wednesday, July 27, 9:00am-11:00am, Grace Dodge 361, Teachers College
Facilitated by Maureen Greco-Blois

At this workshop, you'll get an overview of IEP writing (with a brief view of SESIS), learn how to run a meeting, and make note of what you are legally allowed to do at each meeting. You'll also have an opportunity to practice conducting your own meeting so you are ready to hit the ground running in September.


Teaching Beginning English Language Learners
Monday, August 8 - Tuesday, August 910:00am - 3:00pm, Grace Dodge 281, Teachers College
Facilitated by Rebecca Stanton

Do you teach newcomers to our country? Are you struggling to meet the needs of beginning English Language Learners or just completely at a loss about where to start? This workshop will introduce structures, strategies, scaffolds, and engaging learning activities that will help you effectively support the natural language development of ELLs in your classes. You’ll have the opportunity to analyze and discuss authentic student work, review the Bilingual Common Core progression for language proficiency, and look at NYCDOE-created resources for ELLs along with teacher-developed curriculum. You’ll also have space to reflect on your own teaching and collaborate with other participants to develop a plan for this upcoming year. While not required, you are welcome to bring any curriculum you’d like to develop.

Teaching Content Area Writing to English Language Learners
Wednesday, August 10 - Thursday, August 1110:00am - 3:00pm, Horace Mann 234, Teachers College
Facilitated by Rebecca Stanton

This workshop will focus on scaffolds, strategies, and feedback practices that can be used to improve students’ reading and writing skills in their core content area classes. You’ll begin by analyzing student writing to better understand their gaps and needs and then learn concrete techniques to help students become stronger writers across their classes. You’ll also learn how to help students structure their thinking and evidence-based writing through the use of models and sentence starters, all while guiding them toward content area and language objectives. On the second day of the workshop, you’ll have time to work independently and collaboratively to develop an introductory unit that will build a strong foundation for academic writing in your students.


Understanding the Sensory Processing System
Wednesday, August 24, 9:00am-11:00am, Zankel 406, Teachers College
Facilitated by Maureen Greco-Blois

This workshop will introduce you to the sensory system and how to detect challenges. You will also have the opportunity to investigate ways to make small changes in your inclusive classroom to meet the sensory needs of all of your students.
