Join All Belong's, Pam Maat for this four-part webinar series brought to you at no cost by the Michigan Equitable Service Collaborative (MESC). The webinars will all be offered from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. on the dates below.
Part I: Introduction to Inclusive Education (April 29)
What are the characteristics of an Inclusive school? What is meant by a “Puzzle Piece
Community”? Together we will explore the history of inclusion. We will discuss two major components of inclusion: ownership and friendship. With the help of the “Ten Dimensions of Belonging,” we will consider what more can be done to create belonging for all.
Part 2: Knowing Students Excellently: Intro to a Neurodevelopment & Social-Emotional Framework (May 6)
Each of us, including our students, has a learning profile that includes strengths and challenges. Utilizing the lens of a Neurodevelopmental Framework and a Three-Step Process, teachers can begin to understand their students’ learning profile (head). Along with gaining insight into the mind of a student, a Social-Emotional Framework enables a teacher to gain insight into the heart of students. The two frameworks are key to knowing students excellently.
Part 3: Effective Teaching: Teaching Strategies and Techniques (May 20)
Building on Parts 1 and 2, the use of teaching strategies and techniques will increase teacher effectiveness and learning for all students. Student engagement is a key component to maintaining student attention and sparking active working memory. Discover new strategies and techniques to sharpen your effectiveness.
Part 4: Intentional Building Belonging for All Students (May 27)
What is next? With an understanding of inclusive education, a three-step process for supporting all learners, a neurodevelopmental and social-emotional framework, and effective strategies for all learners, what is next? Similar to the Nike slogan, “Just Do It”, your commitment and action is vital.
