Participants will: Delve into the factors that impact achievement inequality Consider the importance of mindsets and frameworks related to the achievement gap, including how impartiality is missing from struggling students’ school experiences, especially for poor and minority students Examine the indicators that can help you assess whether your school has fostered the values of responsibility, advocacy, and equality Presenter: Dr. Anthony Muhammad

    Target Audience: Non-mental health professionals interested in learning how to respond and help individuals struggling with mental health challenges. One in four Americans lives with a mental health problem each year. Yet, far too many – up to two-thirds – go without treatment. Just as CPR training helps someone without medical training assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) training helps a person assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis. ALGEE action principles will be discussed in detail. ALGEE action principles assist people with knowing how to respond to someone having a mental health crisis. This is an interactive workshop which runs 8 hours and introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems, builds understanding of their impact and overviews common treatments. The potential risk factors and warning signs for a range of mental health problems, including: depression, anxiety/trauma, psychosis and psychotic disorders, eating disorders, substance use disorders, and self-injury. An understanding of the prevalence of various mental health disorders in the U.S. and the need for reduced stigma in their communities. A 5-step action plan (ALGEE) encompassing the skills, resources and knowledge to assess the situation, to select and implement appropriate interventions, and to help the individual in crisis connect with appropriate professional care. The appropriate professional, peer, social, and self-help resources available to help someone with a mental health problem.

    Target Audience: ELA Grades 6-12 This session examines the MAISA GELN Essential Practices for Disciplinary Literacy Instruction in the Secondary Classroom. The purpose of this document is to “increase Michigan’s capacity to improve children’s and adolescent’s literacies by identifying a focused set of research-supported instructional practices that have been shown to increase student achievement and/or engagement with academic literacies. Research suggests that each of the ten sets of practices, if implemented in every secondary core content classroom (English Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Mathematics) at the unit and course level, could make a measurable positive difference in the literacy development and achievement of secondary students in the state.” Staff members are encouraged to attend in cross-disciplinary teams representing English, science, social studies / history and math, as well as administrators and content-area teacher leaders. The training begins by examining the ten Essential Practices in detail. Next, each school team will decide on 1-2 Essential Practices that coordinate with their building goals. Teams will have time to make a plan for the year (and/or beyond) that includes sharing the information with their colleagues, creating a training and implementation timeline, identifying support needs and determining success criteria.

    Target Audience: Classroom Teachers, Interventionists, and Support Staff Grades 3-12 In this virtual, three-session book study we will examine how teachers can use intentional grouping to help readers succeed in upper elementary and secondary ELA classrooms. What Are You Grouping For? offers the practical tools, classroom examples, and actionable steps essential for starting, sustaining, and mastering the management of small groups. This book explains the five teacher moves that work together to support students’ reading independence through small group learning-kidwatching, pivoting, assessing, curating, and planning-and provides examples to guide you and your students toward success. Like many educators in intermediate classrooms across the country, you may be using guided reading principles to teach reading. Whether you’re following targeted reading levels or sticking with your school’s established routines, chances are that guided reading has become synonymous with small group reading for you and your students. But . . . are your students getting the most out of small groups? Are readers of all ability levels experiencing the dynamic learning that can occur in small groups? Do you feel confident that the way you’re grouping kids is based on their wants and needs? Intermediate grade readers don’t need to be guided as much as they need to be engaged and authors Julie Wright and Barry Hoonan have solutions for doing just that using small groups. From must-have beginning-of-the-year strategies to step-by-step advice for implementation, this guide breaks down the processes that support small groups and help create effective instructional reading programs. Based on more than 45 years of combined experience in the classroom, this resource will empower you with tools to ensure that your readers are doing the reading, thinking, and doing-not you.

    Target Audience: Mathematics teachers at any level who influence teachers, administrators, curriculum departments. Our experience as teachers, coaches, and leaders in education has been such that our most powerful professional learning occurs when we are allowed time to collaborate with others. This is imperative to develop and sustain relationships that challenge and support our common vision of mathematics teaching and learning. These supportive relationships not only help us grow professionally, but also allow us the opportunity to alter our practice in a safe space and to deepen our understanding of mathematical content and professional pedagogy. Macomb County needs you to lead the vision with your teachers.
