Making social and emotional learning (SEL) skills part of the learning equation helps children succeed in school and life. With social and
emotional skills, children can manage their feelings, build healthy relationships, and navigate social environments. When adults are supported by good policies and training, children develop the skills needed to prepare them for the world.

In May of 2018, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released the final draft of the long anticipated Wisconsin Social Emotional
Learning (SEL) Competencies
.

Now that the competencies are finalized, districts have been asking for assistance in figuring the next steps in implementing these competencies. Therefore, we have developed this workshop to give district teams the opportunity to unpack the competencies.

Participants will:

  • Map what is currently being done in their building or district to teach the competencies
  • Conduct a gap analysis between the competencies and what is currently being taught
  • Create a plan for filling in the gaps
  • Figure out how to assess if students have mastered the competencies
  • See how some school districts in our state are implementing Social Emotional Learning

Making social and emotional learning (SEL) skills part of the learning equation helps children succeed in school and life. With social and
emotional skills, children can manage their feelings, build healthy relationships, and navigate social environments. When adults are supported by good policies and training, children develop the skills needed to prepare them for the world.

In May of 2018, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released the final draft of the long anticipated Wisconsin Social Emotional
Learning (SEL) Competencies
.

Now that the competencies are finalized, districts have been asking for assistance in figuring the next steps in implementing these competencies. Therefore, we have developed this workshop to give district teams the opportunity to unpack the competencies.

Participants will:

  • Map what is currently being done in their building or district to teach the competencies
  • Conduct a gap analysis between the competencies and what is currently being taught
  • Create a plan for filling in the gaps
  • Figure out how to assess if students have mastered the competencies
  • See how some school districts in our state are implementing Social Emotional Learning

Presenter:
Beth A. Herman, MSE
School Mental Health Training Consultant

This collaborative session is designed for district teams or individuals involved in Social Studies standards rollout. There are significant shifts in pedagogy and student expectations with the revised WI Standards for Social Studies. This session will introduce those shifts (formatting, interdisciplinary nature of social studies, comparison to previous standards), provide time to unpack and repack the standards, and learn about the inquiry arc, an essential part of quality social studies teaching and learning.

Workshop Objectives 
Participants will:

  • Consider the three-year rollout process, coordination of available resources, and brainstorm implications for their local district;
  • Take a deep dive into reading through the revised standards document;
  • Understand the Instructional Shifts required with the revised standards;
  • Review the revised standards and participate in an Unpack/Repack of the indicators;
  • Differentiate between the Types of Student Inquiry (as identified by Trevor Mackenzie, Dive Into Inquiry, 2016) and understand the instructional and outcome expectations of the Inquiry Practices and Processes Strand.

There will be more Wisconsin Standards for Social Studies workshops announced in 2018-2019 but it is imperative that you attend this first day of training for a foundational understanding of the standards.

Pricing is $150 for individuals

Teams of four will be $400 and $100 for each additional team member. 
(All registration confirmations will show a price of $150.  Team discounts will be applied at the time of billing.)

Step Outside and Into Engagement: Outdoor Classroom Leadership - October 24, 2018 https://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=20642&memberid=630 CESA #4 is excited once again to partner with The Wisconsin Center for Environmental Education in providing a variety of professional learning opportunities to enhance the integration of environmental education into existing curricula across all content disciplines. Each workshop utilizes standards-based activities to advance place-based resources to engage learners. Each workshops 7 hours and will include collaboration and curriculum planning time. All workshop participants will receive ready-to-use hands-on lesson and numerous supporting resources. Teachers will receive a Certificate of Completion from the Wisconsin Center for Environmental Education upon successful completion of each workshop. All workshops support schools in their Green and Healthy Schools Wisconsin initiatives. One credit is available for attending two workshops (one credit in the fall and one credit in the spring). Substitute reimbursements are also available for up to $125.

Harness the benefits of the most interactive instruction possible: learning on school grounds, outside the four walls of the classroom. Conducting class outside offers many academic, social and emotional benefits for students. Studies link outdoor learning to improvement in attitudes toward school, increased student achievement, higher attendance, increased social development, and physical health benefits. Learning outdoors is even linked to a reduction of ADHD and ADD symptoms among some students. This workshop is designed for K-12 teachers who are new to conducting class outside and are looking to boost their skills with beginning level resources. Participants will become comfortable with conducting class outside on any type of school grounds (from urban concrete to rural forests) in order to engage and inspire students in learning. Guidelines, rules, safety considerations, resources and handouts will be provided so teachers have everything they need to lead confidently. Classroom management practices that fit within existing PBIS models and are specific to the outdoors will be discussed. The workshop will include time for collaboration and lesson planning, and a variety of ready-to-use activities will be supplied so teachers can implement outdoor learning right away. This workshop is intended for teachers just beginning their adventure in teaching outdoors.

Cost: $150 per person (Districts with #310 tech seats may use "1" seat per person to cover the registration fee. Please indicate this in the registration notes.)

 In addition to timely networking topics and updates, the 2018-19 Early Childhood Network series will explore principles of anti-bias education and effective classroom strategies aimed at helping young children build social-emotional competency, make families feel welcome and nurture children's' development of positive self-identity. 

This series is designed to equip early educators to confidently, powerfully and competently responding to issues of diversity and elevate their capacity for helping young children make sense of the confusing and often emotionally charged messages they receive about themselves and others.

Participants will be led through four learning events by Julie Schmidt, Superintendent of Kildeer Countryside SD (an Adlai Stevenson feeder school).  We'll come together in October for a full day of learning at CESA #4 with Julie.  She will connect with us virtually in November, return for a full day of face-to-face learning in January and wrap up with a virtual session in February.

The Leadership Academy is open to leaders from the district level down to the school level at a cost of $100 (made possible by a grant from DPI) which covers all events and materials.

Making social and emotional learning (SEL) skills part of the learning equation helps children succeed in school and life. With social and emotional skills, children can manage their feelings, build healthy relationships, and navigate social environments. When adults are supported by good policies and training, children develop the skills needed to prepare them for the world.

In May of 2018, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released the final draft of the long anticipated Wisconsin Social Emotional
Learning (SEL) Competencies
.

Now that the competencies are finalized, districts have been asking for assistance in figuring the next steps in implementing these competencies. Therefore, we have developed this workshop to give district teams the opportunity to unpack the competencies.

Participants will:

  • Map what is currently being done in their building or district to teach the competencies
  • Conduct a gap analysis between the competencies and what is currently being taught
  • Create a plan for filling in the gaps
  • Figure out how to assess if students have mastered the competencies
  • See how some school districts in our state are implementing Social Emotional Learning

Making social and emotional learning (SEL) skills part of the learning equation helps children succeed in school and life. With social and
emotional skills, children can manage their feelings, build healthy relationships, and navigate social environments. When adults are supported by good policies and training, children develop the skills needed to prepare them for the world.

In May of 2018, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released the final draft of the long anticipated Wisconsin Social Emotional
Learning (SEL) Competencies
.

Now that the competencies are finalized, districts have been asking for assistance in figuring the next steps in implementing these competencies. Therefore, we have developed this workshop to give district teams the opportunity to unpack the competencies.

Participants will:

  • Map what is currently being done in their building or district to teach the competencies
  • Conduct a gap analysis between the competencies and what is currently being taught
  • Create a plan for filling in the gaps
  • Figure out how to assess if students have mastered the competencies
  • See how some school districts in our state are implementing Social Emotional Learning

Gifted and Talented Student Filmmaking Series - November 26, 2018 https://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=21420&memberid=630 Gifted and Talented Student Filmmaking Series - with Charis Collins!

Charis Collins has worked for several years with Gifted/Talented students and Arts Integration in public schools.  She wrote and helped to produce "North Passage," an independent film that made its debut at the Flyway Film Festival in Pepin, WI and continues to contribute to short films like "Onere," which has won top prizes at film festivals all over the world.

Teams of middle school and high school students will be provided the opportunity to engage in a three-day workshop on film making.  Students will have the chance to apply their new knowledge to direct, film, and edit their own movies!  The series will provide an opportunity for teachers to participate alone with their student teams, so the educators will be able to take their learning back to their schools and provide exposure to similar learning experiences for other students.

This event is a three-part series offered by CESA #4.  This event is free for MVGTN Member Districts and $150.00 for teams of up to 4 students and 1 adult advisor for non-member districts.  Morning refreshments and lunch will be provided on-site.

Leveraging a Leadership Team to Lead, Guide, and Monitor Your PLC Journey - November 28, 2018 https://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=21638&memberid=630 Rick DuFour often said that there is no one person with enough knowledge, skill, or energy to singlehandedly lead a school or district on the PLC journey.  Inherent in PLC practice is the idea of a guiding coalition to assist with this work.  This year's Leadership Academy series is intended to develop school and district leaders' abilities to engage a leadership team in the work of building, deepening, and monitoring PLC practices. 

Participants will be led through four learning events by Julie Schmidt, Superintendent of Kildeer Countryside SD (an Adlai Stevenson feeder school).  We'll come together in October for a full day of learning at CESA #4 with Julie.  She will connect with us virtually in November, return for a full day of face-to-face learning in January and wrap up with a virtual session in February.

The Leadership Academy is open to leaders from the district level down to the school level at a cost of $100 (made possible by a grant from DPI) which covers all events and materials.

The CR Toolkit was developed in partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, Rogers InHealth and a collaborative team of educators, community mental health practitioners and parents. 

Registration for this pre-conference requires a team of 2-4 adults with at least one administrator and one staff facilitator. A second or third facilitator is welcome to join the team from the school staff or a community partner who will collaborate on toolkit implementation in your school. Maximum: 15 school teams of 2-4 people (those who will facilitate with staff and at least one administrator)

 In addition to timely networking topics and updates, the 2018-19 Early Childhood Network series will explore principles of anti-bias education and effective classroom strategies aimed at helping young children build social-emotional competency, make families feel welcome and nurture children's' development of positive self-identity. 

This series is designed to equip early educators to confidently, powerfully and competently responding to issues of diversity and elevate their capacity for helping young children make sense of the confusing and often emotionally charged messages they receive about themselves and others.

Making social and emotional learning (SEL) skills part of the learning equation helps children succeed in school and life. With social and
emotional skills, children can manage their feelings, build healthy relationships, and navigate social environments. When adults are supported by good policies and training, children develop the skills needed to prepare them for the world.

In May of 2018, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released the final draft of the long anticipated Wisconsin Social Emotional
Learning (SEL) Competencies
.

Now that the competencies are finalized, districts have been asking for assistance in figuring the next steps in implementing these competencies. Therefore, we have developed this workshop to give district teams the opportunity to unpack the competencies.

Participants will:

  • Map what is currently being done in their building or district to teach the competencies
  • Conduct a gap analysis between the competencies and what is currently being taught
  • Create a plan for filling in the gaps
  • Figure out how to assess if students have mastered the competencies
  • See how some school districts in our state are implementing Social Emotional Learning

Participants will be led through four learning events by Julie Schmidt, Superintendent of Kildeer Countryside SD (an Adlai Stevenson feeder school).  We'll come together in October for a full day of learning at CESA #4 with Julie.  She will connect with us virtually in November, return for a full day of face-to-face learning in January and wrap up with a virtual session in February.

The Leadership Academy is open to leaders from the district level down to the school level at a cost of $100 (made possible by a grant from DPI) which covers all events and materials.

 In addition to timely networking topics and updates, the 2018-19 Early Childhood Network series will explore principles of anti-bias education and effective classroom strategies aimed at helping young children build social-emotional competency, make families feel welcome and nurture children's' development of positive self-identity. 

This series is designed to equip early educators to confidently, powerfully and competently responding to issues of diversity and elevate their capacity for helping young children make sense of the confusing and often emotionally charged messages they receive about themselves and others.

Leveraging a Leadership Team to Lead, Guide, and Monitor Your PLC Journey - February 21, 2019 https://www.cesa4.k12.wi.us/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=21638&memberid=630 Rick DuFour often said that there is no one person with enough knowledge, skill, or energy to singlehandedly lead a school or district on the PLC journey.  Inherent in PLC practice is the idea of a guiding coalition to assist with this work.  This year's Leadership Academy series is intended to develop school and district leaders' abilities to engage a leadership team in the work of building, deepening, and monitoring PLC practices. 

Participants will be led through four learning events by Julie Schmidt, Superintendent of Kildeer Countryside SD (an Adlai Stevenson feeder school).  We'll come together in October for a full day of learning at CESA #4 with Julie.  She will connect with us virtually in November, return for a full day of face-to-face learning in January and wrap up with a virtual session in February.

The Leadership Academy is open to leaders from the district level down to the school level at a cost of $100 (made possible by a grant from DPI) which covers all events and materials.

Making social and emotional learning (SEL) skills part of the learning equation helps children succeed in school and life. With social and
emotional skills, children can manage their feelings, build healthy relationships, and navigate social environments. When adults are supported by good policies and training, children develop the skills needed to prepare them for the world.

In May of 2018, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released the final draft of the long anticipated Wisconsin Social Emotional
Learning (SEL) Competencies
.

Now that the competencies are finalized, districts have been asking for assistance in figuring the next steps in implementing these competencies. Therefore, we have developed this workshop to give district teams the opportunity to unpack the competencies.

Participants will:

  • Map what is currently being done in their building or district to teach the competencies
  • Conduct a gap analysis between the competencies and what is currently being taught
  • Create a plan for filling in the gaps
  • Figure out how to assess if students have mastered the competencies
  • See how some school districts in our state are implementing Social Emotional Learning

Making social and emotional learning (SEL) skills part of the learning equation helps children succeed in school and life. With social and emotional skills, children can manage their feelings, build healthy relationships, and navigate social environments. When adults are supported by good policies and training, children develop the skills needed to prepare them for the world.

In May of 2018, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released the final draft of the long anticipated Wisconsin Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Competencies.

Now that the competencies are finalized, districts have been asking for assistance in figuring the next steps in implementing these competencies. Therefore, we have developed this workshop to give district teams the opportunity to unpack the competencies.

Participants will:

  • Map what is currently being done in their building or district to teach the competencies
  • Conduct a gap analysis between the competencies and what is currently being taught
  • Create a plan for filling in the gaps
  • Figure out how to assess if students have mastered the competencies
  • See how some school districts in our state are implementing Social Emotional Learning

Each workshop utilizes standards-based activities to advance place-based resources to engage learners. Each workshops 7 hours and will include collaboration and curriculum planning time.

The workshop will include time to apply new techniques to their existing plans and share ideas with others, and a variety of ready-to-use activities will be supplied so teachers can integrate relevant lessons right away.
