Participants will not learn to diagnose, nor how to provide any therapy or counseling - rather, participants learn to support a youth developing signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in an emotional crisis by applying a core five-step action plan: 

  1. Assess for risk or suicide or harm
  2. Listen non-judgmentally
  3. Give reassurance and information
  4. Encourage appropriate help
  5. Encourage self-help and other support strategies

The Youth Mental Health First Aid USA curriculum is primarily focuses on information participants can use to help adolescents and transition-age youth, ages 12-18.

Each session will be presented in an engaging, interactive format. Sessions will build one upon the other though can be taken independently.

Counting Collections

    Kids love to count things! Counting collections is a great way to get kids excited about mathematics and hone and extend early counting principles. By making counting explicit, hands-on, and fun, Counting Collections provides a motivation for the mathematics of early place value understanding, skip counting, and addition. We will engage in Counting Collections, and explore the initial launch with children as well as variations to make the activity meaningful for all learners.

Thursday February 7, 2019
CESA #3
1300 Industrial Drive
Fennimore, WI 53809

Are you prepared for a potentially violent episode? If a student in your classroom were about to lose control, would you know how to react? Would you recognize the warning signs to de-escalate the individual before he/she became assaultive? If he/she did become physically assaultive, would you know how to protect yourself, bystanders and the acting out individual from injury?
With non-violent crisis intervention training you will learn how to recognize the signs of anxiety and pending disruption. You will learn proper verbal and nonverbal reactions that can interrupt the escalation and calm the situation before it gets out of hand.

This program complies with Wis. Act 125 addressing the use of seclusion and physical restraint in public schools

Addressing Middle and High School Disciplinary Literacy Through Forestry Education - March 26, 2019 https://www.cesa3.org/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=21051&memberid=79 Addressing Middle and High School Disciplinary Literacy through Forestry Education

This workshop is designed for the science, social studies or agriculture teacher who wants to gain practice with integrating disciplinary literacy skills into content area teaching and learning. Using examples provided from both outdoor and classroom-based forestry education activities, we will explore how to maximize CCSS-connected opportunities for reading, writing, speaking and listening within teachers’ existing curriculum. The workshop will include time for collaboration and lesson planning, and a variety of ready-to-use activities will be supplied so teachers can integrate relevant lessons right away.

Critical Math for the ACT - April 8, 2019 https://www.cesa3.org/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=22358&memberid=79 Mathematics Institue of Wisconsin

High school math teachers face continued pressure to raise ACT scores, which play a critical role in the assessment of both students and schools. How do you balance the expectations between developing conceptual understanding and reaching proficiency? A closer look at the ACT College and Career Readiness Standards and the Wisconsin Standards for Mathematics (including MIDDLE SCHOOL standards) reveals critical connections. In this workshop, you will compare these sets of standards and consider implications for your classroom instruction. How do the Standards for Mathematical Practice come into play? Explore sample items. Collaborate with colleagues around ways to address student achievement on this assessment. 

 

Workshop Learning Goals

Overarching Idea: Mathematically proficient students are more than procedural thinkers. Unpacking, interpreting, and planning for two sets of standards involves creating opportunities for students to develop conceptual understanding, application, and procedural fluency.

Criteria for success :

? Can I articulate connections between ACT College and Career Readiness Standards and WI Standards for Mathematics?

? Can I reflect on how my learning today might impact my classroom instruction?

? Can I consider how I can become an advocate for change in my school and/or district?

K-12 Formative Math Project (Session 6) - April 9, 2019 https://www.cesa3.org/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=21642&memberid=79 Project Objectives:

Through the learning experiences in the project, you will:

  • Learn about current research on the critical aspects of formative assessment specific to the mathematics classroom;

  • Connect formative assessment practices to classroom practices;

  • Learn about the use effective use of mathematics learning targets (including success criteria) for a unit of instruction based on mathematics learning progressions;

  • Engage in action research to integrate the aspects of formative assessment practices (eliciting and interpreting evidence, providing effective feedback, helping students learn to be more self-regulating in their mathematics learning) in a mathematics classroom and reflect on the effectiveness of the implementation;

  • Examine and evaluate current practices and structures within your own instruction to plan for next steps to embed formative assessment in your mathematics instruction.

 

Project Outcomes:

  • Develop a set of mathematics learning targets that serve as the basis for development of future learning targets;

  • Develop fluency with a set of strategies that support formative assessment practices around gathering and interpreting evidence, provide effective feedback to students, and teaching students how to effectively self- and peer-assess their mathematical work;

  • Over the project of a mathematics unit, document lesson planning, lesson implementation, and reflection around specific formative assessment techniques;

  • Create a plan that embeds elements of formative assessment into your mathematics instruction.

Come deepen your understanding of early childhood mathematics. Sessions feature activities you can use the next day with your students and each are grounded in developmental learning trajectories for early childhood mathematics. Each session will be presented in an engaging, interactive format. Sessions will build one upon the other though can be taken independently.

 

OUR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOP SESSIONS ANCHOR AROUND THREE BIG IDEAS:

(1) DEVELOPMENTAL MATHEMATICS LEARNING TRAJECTORIES,

(2) CHILD-CENTERED, DEVELOPMENTALLY APPROPRIATE INSTRUCTIONAL PRACTICES, AND

(3) STRATEGIES THAT NURTURE YOUNG CHILDREN’S JOY AND CURIOSITY IN MATHEMATICS.

 

The Development of Number Sense—Part 2

    This session will be a continuation of number sense development began in Session     2. We will dig deeper into the four number relationships and children’s understanding of number and quantity, as well as, how to leverage the four number relationships during instruction to support children’s mathematical understanding and growth.
