MENTORING: A PROMISING STRATEGY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF YOUTH RESILIENCY EDUC-547-034 21ST CENTURY SKILLS/COMMON CORE/PBIs/RTI/PLCS/DIFFERENTIATION COURSES

At its most basic level, mentoring helps because it guarantees a young person that there is someone who cares about them.  The child is not alone in dealing with questions, stressful situations, and day-to-day activities.  Mentors provide their mentees with an experienced friend who is there to help in any number of situations.  Educators can use mentoring as a powerful tool to provide stability for students, boost student self-esteem, and reinforce academic content taught in the classroom.  In this course we will examine the value of mentoring, the major components of a successful youth mentoring program, and the process of establishing a mentoring program in a classroom or school

UNIQUE LEARNERS: HOW BOYS AND GIRLS LEARN DIFFERENTLY EDUC-547-041 21ST CENTURY SKILLS/COMMON CORE/PBIs/RTI/PLCS/DIFFERENTIATION COURSES

Research indicates that boys account for up to 70% of failing grades, receive up to 90% of school disciplinary referrals and are 80% of the children diagnosed with ADHD. More boys drop out of school and fewer boys pursue high education than girls. In addition, girls outperform boys across the board in verbal skills, but often when they hit middle school their math performance takes a dive. Why is this happening?  How can brain research help us to understand these differences? What can educators do to change these statistics?
In this course, we will explore current brain research and correlations to classroom environments and teaching behaviors that increase student understanding.  Educators will use their new knowledge to develop lesson plans using gender-friendly strategies to enhance attitudes, behavior, motivation and academic achievement.

WISCONSIN PAPER EXPERIENCE: THE LAB EDUC-547-008 ART/MUSIC COURSES

First we play with paper, making pulp, sheets, bowls, castings, molds, seed paper, paper seed balls, paper planters, textured paper, embossing and sculpture from recycled materials.  We use those paper products to create paper items, such as sachets, pins, cards, bookmarks, tags, thereby expanding the experience.  Then we explore classroom setup and management for these cross-curricular projects.  Since we all use paper every day and Wisconsin has led the nation in papermaking for over 60 years, every community has a link to the paper industry, and therefore most families are also connected.  Our study of paper spans all academic disciplines, ability levels and age groups, links school and community resources, and leads to an exploration of careers and innovation in many areas.  Join us for a hands-on exploration of paper in all its education potential and leave with ideas to implement with your students.
