STEM
Act 48 Activity Hours

nstructor(s): Peney Wright, Eric Yoder 

Description of Activity: All of central Pennsylvania is part of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed and there are five other watersheds that our state impact. Pennsylvania is committed to protecting these precious natural resources. A water shed is land area whose runoff drains into any river, stream, lake, and/or ocean. However, runoff from fields, lawns, pavement, and construction sites could carry potentially harmful materials from our watersheds to our rivers, bays and oceans. Even if you live, work, or play far from a river, your actions could have an impact on the quality of the water in many areas. Grants are available to fund MWEEs. 

A MWEE is…students exploring real world issues…in the field and in the classroom…students using evidence to draw conclusions and… take action! MWEEs use project-based methods, as well as, student voice and choice to engage learners in Local Issues Definition and Research, Outdoor Field Experiences, Synthesis and Conclusion, all leading towards Stewardship and Civic Action. These essential 4 student supporting practices are structured by active teacher support, local context, classroom integration and sustained activity. 

Environmental Education and Advocate Stakeholders urge all school districts to engage learners in at least one MWEE in elementary, one MWEE in middle school and one MWEE in high school.  MWEEs support PA’s New SE, EE & TE Academic Standards. During  
MWEE Session #1 we’ll walk you through a MWEE in action.  In Session #2 we will spend most of the day experiences Outdoor Field Experience. There will be time during the second session for preliminary planning for your own MWEE. 

Sessions Progression: Session #1 must be completed first, but any subsequent Session #2 workshop may be selected throughout the school year. They can be, but do not have to be, completed in close proximity. Both  sessions must be completed to earn Act 48 hours.
 

Audience: all PreK-12 educators, library/media specialists, STEM Specialists,  Instructional Coaches, special education educators

Location: Spark Lab & Outdoor Field Experience TBD

2022 Para Educator Book Study - Twirling Naked In the Streets and Nobody Noticed: Growing Up With Undiagnosed Autism

July 5 - 25, 2022
Your Internet Ready Computer
Special Education
Act 48 Activity Hours General Activity Hours (non-PDE)

Lisa Kruse: Twirling Naked In the Streets and Nobody Noticed: Growing Up With Undiagnosed Autism by Jeannie Davide-River (limited to 20 participants)

Jeannie grew up with autism, but no one around here knew it. Twirling Naked in the Streets will take you on a journey into the mind of a child on the autism spectrum; a child who grows into an adolescent, an adult, and becomes a wife, mother, student, and writer with autism. 

This is a gripping memoir of a quirky, weird, but gifted child who grows up never quite finding her niche only to discover at the age of 38 that all the issues, problems, and weirdness she experienced were because she had Asperger’s Syndrome (AS), a form of high-functioning autism. 

The tale begins at age three and takes us all the way through her diagnosis. Along the way she explains autism in a way that will have fellow “Aspies” crying tears of joy at being understood, and “neuro-typical” people really starting to grasp the challenges that autistic people face every moment of every day. 

NOTE: The hours will be awarded for the 2021/2022 school year OR the 2022/2023 school year.

Brian Kritzer - The Burnout Cure: Learning to Love Teaching Again by Chase Mielke

15 Hours Awarded 

How can you energize yourself to maintain or regain a positive outlook and love of teaching? What specific, immediate actions can you take to enhance your well-being and thrive both on and off the job?

Award-winning teacher Chase Mielke draws from his own research, lesson plans, and experiences with burnout to help you change your outlook, strengthen your determination to be a terrific teacher, and reignite your core passion for teaching.

Often lighthearted, yet thoroughly grounded in research on social-emotional learning and positive psychology, The Burnout Cure  explains how shifts in awareness, attitudes, and actions can be transformational for you and for your students. The book describes specific steps related to mindfulness, empathy, gratitude, and altruism that you can use on your own and with students via classroom lessons and activities. Equipped with these tools, teachers can be their best, so they can give their best to the learners in their care.

ACCELRATED LEARNING

Closing Achievement gaps with integrated system of supports.

PURPOSE 

PDE has requested the Intermediate Units to train and support districts in implementing the Accelerated Learning Process during the 2022-2023 school year. They are recommending that each school district selects a team of 5-8 school administrators and lead teachers to assess and identify areas to strengthen in their current educational system. 

During the first day, teams will participate in activities to establish a focus and course of action each district would like to pursue. 

Subsequent trainings, at a later date, will then be provided in the four key factors of the Accelerated Learning Toolkit: High-Quality Academics, Supportive Learning Environments, Establishing a Healthy System Conditions, and Design a System of Scaffolded 
Supports, based upon the areas of need. 

Schools will attend those areas that will support each team as they work to improve student learning.
