Teaching Math with Google Apps
Instructor: Alice Keeler
Description:

Teaching Math with Google Apps with Alice Keeler

Alice Keeler

Alice Keeler's third book Teaching Math with Google Apps, focuses specifically on Math classrooms and how to use Google Apps to radically change how students interact and think about their Math content.

Teaching math in the 21st century is different, it asks students to be critical thinkers, model their math, critique the reasoning of others, and to analyze.  Teaching Math with Google Apps on September 27, 2017 will show that the depth of knowledge is NOT how hard a task is but how much critical thinking a student is engaged in.  Alice Keeler will discuss ways to use Google Apps to increase the DOK for your students.  Teaching Math with Google Apps will show you how to:

  • Create engaging activities that make math relevant to your students
  • Interact with students throughout the learning process
  • Spend less time repeating instructions and grading work
  • Improve your lessons so you can better meet your students' needs

Understanding & Managing Trauma: A Basic Classroom Approach
Instructor: Project AWARE
Description:

Trauma can affect many aspects of a child's life.  Oftentimes we fail to understand the effects of trauma, possibly not understanding a child's behavior as a result of the trauma.  It can be easy to see a child's behavior as defiant, or disruptive, when the behavior is really a result of the child's response to trauma.  This workshop, with curriculum from Akron's Children Hospital, can help educators, and others who deal with children, understand the impact trauma can have on a child's life.

  What you will learn:

  • The impact of trauma on a child's brain
  • How to manage trauma in the classroom
  • Strengthening resiliency through developmental assets
  • Recognizing & handling secondary traumatic stress

This is a Level 1 training for participants who have had little or no training on trauma.

If you are having trouble registering, please call Pat Clark at  513.695.2900 ext. 1653, or email at PatriciaClark@warrencountyesc.com
