Behavior Foundations Proactive Strategies Workshop

 

  • This 2 day training (May 31 - June 1) is appropriate for general education teachers, special education teachers, administrators, and related service staff members. Paraprofessionals are welcome but are encouraged to attend with a school team or special education supervisor/teacher due to the planning/workshop format. Teams and individuals will have the opportunity to participate in face to face training and guided planning related to proactive strategies that support of students with challenging behavior. The content will be very similar to the Behavior Foundations 1 Fall training on proactive strategies. Teams or individuals will have embedded planning sessions throughout the 2-day workshop.

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.

Communicative Competence in Learners with Significant Disabilities Winter

Session 1: This session will focus on assessing levels of communication for learners at the non-symbolic or
early symbolic level of communication. The Communication Matrix will be used to review the
assessment process and how to target levels for instruction and programming.


Session 2: This session will discuss the difference between intentional and intentionally communicative
behaviors in learners at the non-symbolic and early symbolic levels of communication. Students
will be presented with a variety of examples of learners at various ages and how the process
used to encourage more communicative communication.


Session 3: : Programming and Instruction for Learners at the Non-Symbolic Level
This session will discuss a process for making decisions on instructional goals and objectives for
learners at the non-symbolic and early symbolic levels of communication. Students will discuss
examples of programming and instruction for a variety of learners..

The ISU Regional Mathematics Center and the ISU Mathematics Department will be hosting a FREE 8 day Summer Matheamtics Institute for secondary mathematics teachers. The purpose of this two week event is to further develop key content knowledge in geometry, become proficient in using Geometer's Sketchpad, and develop learning experiences for students that incorporate Geometer's Sketchpad. All participants will receive one free copy of Geometer's Sketchpad for use in their classroom.

DATES/TIMES: This Summer Mathematics Institute will be held Tuesday-Friday, July 21-24 and July 28-31, 2015 from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. There are no meals provided.

All Idaho Teachers

The Idaho Standards Academy (ISA) is designed to help K-8 teachers:(1) understand the Idaho Core Math Standards through hands-on and task-based learning, and (2) understand more effective and productive ways of teaching mathematics. Recognizing that teachers have ample experience and resources that support procedural fluency, ISA aims to provide resources, knowledge, and pedagogy that support mathematical depth and application. Academies will be held in Pocatello (8/3-4), Twin Falls (8/6-7), and Rigby (8/10-11) and for each academy there will be sessions for teachers in grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8.

Registration for these workshops can be found at https://commerce.cashnet.com/isucoeisa and there is a $30 registration fee. Additional questions can be directed to the Regional Mathematics Specialists at (208) 282-2804.

This course develops the geometry concepts of congruence, parallelism, and similarity using transformations (e.g., rigid motions or isometries) and the corresponding matrix representations with respect to a chosen basis. Students will learn how shape geometry; including congruence, parallelism, and similarity; can be developed using transformations and how this can be done with middle school and secondary geometry students.

In addition, graduate students (MTHE 527) will learn how transformational geometry approaches can be used to more rigorously develop undergraduate second and third semester calculus strategies such as change of variable strategies for integration problems.

An objective for all three courses is to engage students in an authentic mathematical experience, where they will take advantage of technology (geometry software), prior knowledge, intuition, heuristics, and formal mathematical systemization as they answer mathematical questions such as how must the definitions, axioms, and postulates from traditional Euclidean geometry be modified to develop an axiomatic approach to congruence, parallelism, and similarity using a transformational approach? This course does not count towards a MS or PhD in mathematics.

Format: One to two web meetings per week (times and days to be determined by vote of enrolled students), weekly videos, and online posting to a discussion board.

All courses are from June 15-July 24, 2015

A critical component of elementary mathematics is understanding rational numbers (fractions). In this session, teachers will deepen their own understandings of rational numbers through problem-solving tasks. They will learn how fractions align vertically through the standards and how learning progressions can be used to deepen their students’ fraction understanding.

Strong number sense is the foundation of Singapore Math. Throughout this class, you will examine what number sense is and how students who master it have a strong conceptual understanding of place value and number facts. You will find out how to help your students develop number sense, which will build a solid foundation for algebraic thinking.

Model drawing is one of the main strategies used by Singapore Math teachers. It provides students with a powerful tool for tackling word problems they’ll en-counter in more advanced math and in everyday situations. The focus of this course will be to teach teachers the bar modeling strategy so they may help their students to become more proficient in solving everyday problems.
