Women and Writing in History and English:
Social Studies and English teachers are invited to participate in a 6-hour workshop at Mississippi State University on history and writing. Taking inspiration from Laurel Thatcher Ulrich’s famous observation that “Well-behaved women seldom make history,” Dr. Courtney Thompson will lead a session on women’s history and incorporating women into the history we teach. Dr. Elizabeth Miller will follow with a workshop on how to help students with writing assignments, using the information that Dr. Thompson has provided for examples on grading and commenting on student writing. .6 CEUs
This one-day training provides participants with information on how to plan for and increase inclusive opportunity for students with significant disabilities. Strategies will be presented on how to include students with significant disabilities in school-wide PBIS, how to provide access to content and activities for all students, and ideas on how to make inclusion more successful for students with challenging behaviors. Scheduling and programming ideas for inclusion will also be shared. The roles of the general education teachers, special education teacher, and administrators will be examined. Opportunities for each of these individuals to collaborate with like-role participants across districts and with teams within districts will be provided. Foundational PBIS knowledge is highly recommended as this training will not cover general information about PBIS. This training is similar to training to provided last year on this topic
Targeted Participants: Special education staff, general education staff, and administrators
