FEATURED EVENTS

The Science of Reading Workshops at the SRI&ETTC

June 25, 2024 & July 23, 2024


The Science of Reading for Secondary Teachers

June 25, 2024

For educators of middle and high school students, there's no denying the importance of reading for student success. As a result, it's only right to make sure that education programs are based on the most up-to-date science of reading principles. What works for an elementary student will not necessarily work for those slightly older - and specific adjustments may be needed. This workshop aims to examine the "do's and don'ts" when teaching reading to students in grades 6-12 within the context of scientific research by reviewing positive behaviors (what you should do).


The Science of Reading

July 23, 2024

The science of reading is a vast, interdisciplinary body of scientifically-based research about reading and issues related to reading and writing. This research has been conducted over the last five decades across the world and is derived from thousands of studies conducted in multiple languages. The science of reading has culminated in a preponderance of evidence to inform how proficient reading and writing develop; why some have difficulty; and how we can most effectively assess and teach and, therefore, improve student outcomes through prevention of and intervention for reading difficulties. The session will provide participants with strategies to shift practices to those that align with the research in order to improve student outcomes, as well as focus on strategies for small group instruction and learning centers.


The Science of Reading workshops are being offered as a Hybrid Sessions and can be taken in-person or live online via Zoom, please select your preferred option at the time of registration.

Professional Development Opportunities for School Administrators · Summer 2024

Presented by the SRI&ETTC at Stockton University


The SRI&ETTC is proud to offer a School Administrators Professional Development Series in Summer 2024 presented by Stockton University Faculty and Education Law Attorneys. 


The workshops listed below are also available as custom programming that can be brought to your district at the date and time that works for the district schedule. Contact Dr. Barbara Hagerty, barbara.hagerty@stockton.edu, to discuss professional development options.

 

Structuring Your I&RS Team for a Successful Year · Hybrid Delivery

July 16, 2024 · 9 am to 12 pm

An I&RS team provides the school with an institutionalized mechanism and comprehensive strategy for enabling staff and families or caregivers to collaborate systematically over time. This collaboration requires careful planning and maintenance to become an integral and valued part of the educational system. A strong I&RS team is necessary for an I&RS system to work effectively in a school.


This session will define the characteristics of an effective team while providing administrators with recommendations for team composition. Team member roles and responsibilities will be clarified. In addition, this session will identify the support needed for I&RS team operations from the board of education, central office administrators, building administrators, and school staff. Participants will learn the best practices for collaborative decision-making. The relationship of I&RS teams to other building-based groups will be explored. Finally, participants will explore appropriate models for I&RS functions.


Using Data to Drive Instruction · Live Online via Zoom

July 17, 2024 · 9 am to 12 pm

As educators, we need to constantly use data to drive instruction. However, that can be easier said than done. In this workshop, we will share some user-friendly strategies that work, including looking for trends in the data to plan whole class lessons; looking at individual scores to form small groups; collecting additional data on a regular basis; and sharing the results with students to develop ownership and a growth mindset. These strategies are designed to save educators time while using data to drive instruction.


Danielson Refresher for Experienced Administrators · Live Online via Zoom

August 12, 2024 · 9 am to 11 am

This workshop will focus on enhancing use of and addressing common challenges using the Danielson framework. Topics include determining a score when evidence falls between levels, con-ducting post-observation conferences, building inter-rater reliability, and working with your faculty leadership teams (e.g. DEAC, ScIP). Additionally, utilizing the framework for instructional improvement will be explored.


Making the Mentoring Process More Meaningful · Hybrid Delivery

August 20, 2024 · 9 am to 12 pm

In this workshop, mentors will explore the mentoring process and understand the requirements for working with novice teachers. Practical strategies, skills, information, and resources will be discussed that will help them to successfully mentor novice teachers and positively impact their professional growth. Through role playing, communication skills, and knowledge of adult learning principles, mentor teachers will be provided with resources that will not only help them to become effective mentors and role models, but will also expand their own professional expertise.


Danielson for New Administrators · Live Online via Zoom

August 21, 2024 · 9 am to 12 pm

This workshop will focus on developing a working knowledge of the Danielson Framework with exploration of the four domains and their components. Practice with collecting ample evidence, scoring the observation, and conducting the post-observation conference will be provided.

THE SEI ONLNE

A Free 15-Hour Course on Sheltered English Instruction

Developed by the SRI&ETTC Funded by the NJ Department of Education

Educating students who still are acquiring English proficiency can be complex in an age of high stakes evaluations and assessments as well as college and career-ready standards. English language learners (ELLs) are not monolithic in their educational background, cultural experiences, and ability to adapt to learning environments. However, through well-planned instruction, ELLs can attain challenging academic standards.
