Option B: Rethinking Assessment & Equity (12:30-3:30)

Rethinking Assessment and Equity (Afternoon Option B) Assessment takes a step toward equity by unveiling what students need at that moment in their educational path.  Rethinking assessment means finding solutions that assist educators to know the student, promote high expectations for all, help students know their learning story, create flexible routines for personalized learnings, teach failure as a step in the learning process; and build a culturally responsive environment. In speed-geeking style, participants will discuss these topics and seek real solutions to revising the assessment system in their respective settings. Connections to the Classroom Diagnostic Tool, the Danielson Framework, and The Universal Design for Learning will be made.

Aligning and Integration Mental Health and PBIS Building an Interconnected Systems Framework

October 29, 2019
Tuscarora Intermediate Unit 11
Special Education
Act 48 Activity Hours

Aligning and Integration Mental Health and PBIS  Building an Interconnected Systems Framework  presented by Kelly Perales, LCSWPBIS/Mental Health Integration Midwest PBIS Network

The Interconnected Systems Framework (ISF) is a structure and process to integrate Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports and School Mental Health within school systems.  The goal is to blend resources, training, systems, data, and practices in order to improve outcomes for all children and youth.  There is an emphasis on prevention, early identification, and intervention of the social, emotional, and behavior needs of students.  Family and community partner involvement is critical to this framework.

During this session you will learn about:

  • The history, context, and need for an interconnected system.
  • How to align initiatives, such as mental health, social emotional competencies, trauma-informed practices, and other related initiatives.
  • How to get started at the district and building level, including use of an action planning template, tools, resources, training curriculum and a workbook.

Learn about exemplars in Pennsylvania who have been doing this work for over three years.  Plan to leave with specific tools to use in your district. 

Please contact Kelly Zurybida at kzurybida@tiu11.org with questions. 

Why: 

  • Would you like to have improved communication and collaboration with community providers who come to your school and work with students?
  • Would you like to enhance your tier two continuum of interventions to address the social, emotional, mental, and behavioral health needs of your students?
  • Do you worry there are students in your schools with unmet mental health needs?  Especially those who do not have acting out problem behavior?

The Lost Art of Charcoal Making

July 20 - 21, 2019
Greenwood Furnace State Park
Curriculum History
Notices
CPE Credit
This course is designed for teachers of grades 4 to 12 who incorporate geography, science, history, social studies, and technology, into their curriculum. It will introduce teachers to the traditional process of making charcoal, known as the “pit” or “meiler” method, as practiced at area ironworks throughout the Juniata Valley, Pennsylvania, and elsewhere in the 19th century. Traditionally, charcoaling was a highly skilled occupation. Ironworks paid “colliers” (charcoal makers) well, who were among the highest paid of the “blue-collar” workers. As the charcoal iron industry faded into history, and new mechanical means of producing charcoal for other uses were developed in the 20th century, the traditional method of charcoal making was almost lost. Only through the far-sighted efforts of personnel at Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site in Berks County, Pa. in the 1930s was the process documented, preserved, and passed on to others. The workshop consists of two consecutive days (Saturday and Sunday) of field school on site, and 15 hours additional time completing an out-of-class assignment. Teachers taking the course will participate in an actual charcoal burn demonstration. The process used is nearly identical to that used at Greenwood Furnace in the 19th century, the only difference being the size of the “pit” is greatly reduced (1/3 cord of wood versus 35 to 50 cords historically). Participants will gain hands-on experience in preparing the hearth, stacking the pit, leafing and dusting, lighting and burning, and raking out. They will also help to cook typical collier food that the public can sample. The entire burn will last 30 continuous hours from beginning to end. Teachers will be required to be present for the first 4 hours (9 am to 1 pm Saturday) and the last 3 hours (1 pm to 4 pm Sunday). The remaining 8 hours of will be scheduled during the burn, in one or more shifts, which may include overnight shifts. Teachers may work additional hours as desired. They may also tent camp overnight near the hearth for no charge. There is no classroom-based instruction in the course, rather, instruction will be provided during the demonstration. Additional reading materials will be given to teachers on the process. Please bring your own lunch.

CPE Credit
This course is designed for teachers of grades 4 to 12 who incorporate geography, science, history, and technology, into their curriculum. It will introduce teachers to basic concepts of archaeology. While famous archaeological sites such as ancient Egypt and the Meso-American sites of the desert southwestern United States grab headlines, no less important are archaeological studies in the local area. Most archaeological sites in Pennsylvania fall into three categories — pre-historic, historic, and industrial. Greenwood Furnace State Park is the region’s best-preserved iron site open to the public and can offer experience in historic and industrial archaeology. The workshop will consist of one week (five days) of field school in which teachers will learn about and participate in an authentic archaeological dig. In addition, the course introduces teachers to Greenwood Furnace State Park, and how the site can be utilized as an outdoor classroom for their students. A copy of the “Diggin’ The Past: Historic and Industrial Archaeology at Greenwood Furnace State Park ” is provided as part of the course. This guide contains educational modules for incorporating archaeology into the classroom. SPECIAL INFORMATION: This course involves manual labor in the outdoors on an actual archaeological site. Duties may include shoveling and moving buckets of dirt, and moving small to medium sized rocks and bricks. You will be digging all five days of the course. Wear appropriate clothing you do not mind getting dirty, including long pants, sturdy shoes, and a wide brim hat. With prior notice, we can provide alternative activities on-site for teachers unable to do the manual labor. Bring your own lunch. It will be offered for 2 Graduate Credits or for 60 hours toward Act 48.

Creating Welcoming Services for LGBTQ Individuals and Their Families 

Who Should Attend:  Anyone wishing to become more aware of issues faced by persons referred to as “sexual minorities”.  This heterogeneous population also includes persons with gender identity differences. 

Course Description:  In this seminar we examine the effects of language, culture, and power dynamics on the developing person hood of those who carry the labels represented in LGBTQ/SOGIE.  We will also examine our own biases, values and thinking, conditioned by our own upbringing, acculturation, and knowledge.  Our focus will be on ways to become more truly welcoming and affirming to all persons who differ from us and learn from them how to be helpful as part of a healing community of support.  There will be an emphasis on affirming service for people who are transgender.

How to Apply:  See registration form below.   
*A $35.00 fee will be charged for professional continuing education credits.*
