Behavior Foundations Winter

Behavior Foundations Face-to-Face consists of two one-day trainings. The first was held in the Fall and the current is scheduled for Spring (February/March). The Fall training focused on practical applications of evidence-based intervention strategies for individuals with ineffective or problem behavior. Spring training will focus on conducting functional behavioral assessment and designing interventions that will increase engagement in appropriate alternative and desirable replacement behaviors that will lead to individual success and academic growth.
There are more ways to benefit from the Behavior Foundations training series! Behavior Foundations Face-to-Face is the first of the four-part Idaho Behavior Foundations Academy that will assist schools, districts, and regions to achieve effective practices for students with problem behavior.

Teaching young students about the causes, the flow, and the consequences of the American Revolution is an essential part of becoming an active citizen in the American democracy. In order to reach judgments about how revolutionary the American Revolution actually was, this course will examine the long struggle through different sets of eyes-Native Americans, enslaved and free African Americans, and white women and men of different social classes, religions, ideological dispositions, occupations, and regions. Through this course, teachers will explore the impact of the unsung and of lesser-known Americans in the revolution. Author: Gary Nash.

Participants will explore research-based practices and cross-curricular applications along with specific STEM content provided by experts. The format of the institutes will be a combination of:
• Modeling best-practices around STEM curriculum including hands-on, project-based, inquiry-based, and design-based instruction, and pedagogy;
• Plenary sessions, with nationally recognized keynote speakers;
• 21st century skill-based curriculum and pedagogy;
• Leadership strategies;
• 20 hours of interactive curriculum and instruction linked to Idaho/National STEM education learning standards;
• Continuing education credit opportunities will be made available for individuals attending the 2015 i-STEM summer institutes.
2015 i-STEM summer institutes are supported in part by an Idaho State Department of Education Math Science Partnership grant and a variety of i-STEM business and industry partners. All participants will receive free tuition for continuing education credits, tools, resources, curriculum, a technology device, and material kits for use in your classroom or school, along with meals and connections to STEM Content experts. Please note we have fully adopted a “Place Based” model for the 2015 i-STEM summer institutes and participants are expected to attend the institute in or near their respective region. This change allows for greater local teacher participation, as we have now opened 6 institutes across the state.
