LIRAEN APPPROVED COURSES:

Audience: Geared towards ESL Levels 1-6

TITLE: Setting Up ELL Classrooms For Success by Dynamic Planning and Resource Sharing

Let’s build continuity of concepts and skills in our multi-level ESL classes! Providing structure, routine, and accountability in your day to day learner centered activities can allow for growth in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. We will explore the basics of planning for a week (or more ) of educational fun by using the workplace/career path, We Speak New York, and English for math as our content.

We will also have a show and tell of resources - bring one thing - lesson, book, tip, trick, or manipulative, to the workshop and prepare to share with your small group.

3 hours PD.



Audience: Geared towards ABE Teachers

TITLE: GRASPing the Fast Track to Success

Throughout this workshop, educators will develop an in-depth understanding of the NYSED/CUNY Fast Track GRASP Math Learning Modules, and how to implement them into their instruction to enhance students’ literacy and numeracy skills. Educators from NYSED approved FAST Track classes, ABE/HSE and GRASP Distance Learning Programs are encouraged to attend this extremely informative workshop.

3 hours PD.

CTLE CREDIT ONLY, not approved for LIRAEN credit.

Audience: Geared towards anyone who works closely with others

TITLE: Dealing with Difficult People: Developing Strategic Tools

Almost everyone can relate to the problem of having at least one difficult person in their life. Conflict with others is an unpleasant fact. Do you struggle with negative and uncooperative people? This workshop will empower you with tips that will help you to begin to respond rather than react and/or avoid difficult personality types. Through this workshop, strategies will be taught in approaching each day with optimism. Optimism promotes resilience in the human spirit. One of our best defenses in the face of adversity is the choice to be optimistic. Our thoughts play a major role in determining whether we respond or react to life circumstances. This workshop will provide a framework for ”positive thought alignment” in our everyday life.

3 hours PD.
