Studying Skillful Teaching (SST): 
Promoting Motivation, Learning, and Achievement
 
Presenter: Janice Burres 
Research for Better Teaching (RBT)

Presenter: Janice Burres, RBT: Research for Better Teaching
Dates: Six dates throughout the school year: 
          2018: Nov.02, Nov.28, Dec.11, 2018.
          2019: Jan.09, Jan.28, and March.01, 2019.
Time: 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM
Session Number: 19-227801

Description: Nothing is more complex, challenging, or important than assuring high levels of learning for each and every student. And no single factor has a greater impact on student learning than skillful teaching. The Studying Skillful Teaching program is RBT's cornerstone program for building teachers' capacity - the knowledge and skills as well as the courage and conviction to promote students' motivation, learning, and increased achievement. It is based on the belief that teaching is a process of decision-making; and that skillful teachers never stop learning through experimentation, data analysis, study, and collegial sharing about what works best for their students. This reflective dialogue is an invaluable asset for building common and coherent language among educators. 

Outcomes: While receiving an overview to a comprehensive model of the knowledge base on teaching, participants will study, apply, and reflect on practical ways to: 

  • Examine powerful beliefs and expectations that influence students' motivations to learn; 
  • Support students in developing a growth mindset; 
  • Design lessons that focus students on what learning is most important (objective) and what success looks like (criteria for success); 
  • Apply research-based instructional strategies; 
  • Collect, analyze, and use formative assessment data to inform timely decisions about what happens next for students' learning; and 
  • Strengthen cultural proficiency in instruction, curriculum, class climate, and school environment. 

Audience: K-12 Educators 
Hours/PDPs: 37.5 hours; 67.5 PDPs 
Cost: $899 NRC member districts: $949; Non-member districts; includes SST text and substantial instructional materials (binder). 
Graduate credit: This course may be taken for 3 Graduate credits (67.5 PDPs) through Fitchburg State University for an additional fee of $385 that is paid to "Fitchburg State University" at the first session. 
Register by: October 5, 2018. 

Register online through your district's SmartPD link, or NRC's SmartPD Registration link at: https://app.smartedu.net/nrc/pd/.
SST is listed in the "Curriculum & Instruction" category of trainings.

Session Number: 19-102201

Description: Reflecting the national shift towards learning-focused supervision and evaluation, the Analyzing Teaching for Student Results (ATSR) course helps leaders zero in on high-leverage teaching strategies that make a difference to student learning. During the 42-hour ATSR course, participants examine and use both a common language and concept system about teaching to support any state framework. In addition, they develop skills for identifying and providing results-oriented reports and feedback based on observations and analysis of data from other sources including student achievement. This program is comprehensively redesigned to meet the requirements of the new teacher evaluation systems used in Massachusetts and other states. To apply the language and concepts to various states’ models, crosswalks have been developed for districts where RBT has already been working.

See October 2018 dates for the full description of this course.

Promoting Motivation, Learning, and Achievement
 
Presenter: Janice Burres 
Research for Better Teaching (RBT)

Presenter: Janice Burres, RBT: Research for Better Teaching
Dates: Six dates throughout the school year: 
          2018: Nov.02, Nov.28, Dec.11, 2018.

Time: 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM
Session Number: 19-227801

Description: Nothing is more complex, challenging, or important than assuring high levels of learning for each and every student. And no single factor has a greater impact on student learning than skillful teaching. The Studying Skillful Teaching program is RBT's cornerstone program for building teachers' capacity - the knowledge and skills as well as the courage and conviction to promote students' motivation, learning, and increased achievement. It is based on the belief that teaching is a process of decision-making; and that skillful teachers never stop learning through experimentation, data analysis, study, and collegial sharing about what works best for their students. This reflective dialogue is an invaluable asset for building common and coherent language among educators. 

Outcomes: While receiving an overview to a comprehensive model of the knowledge base on teaching, participants will study, apply, and reflect on practical ways to: 

  • Examine powerful beliefs and expectations that influence students' motivations to learn; 
  • Support students in developing a growth mindset; 
  • Design lessons that focus students on what learning is most important (objective) and what success looks like (criteria for success); 
  • Apply research-based instructional strategies; 
  • Collect, analyze, and use formative assessment data to inform timely decisions about what happens next for students' learning; and 
  • Strengthen cultural proficiency in instruction, curriculum, class climate, and school environment. 

Audience: K-12 Educators 
Hours/PDPs: 37.5 hours; 67.5 PDPs 
Cost: $899 NRC member districts: $949; Non-member districts; includes SST text and substantial instructional materials (binder). 
Graduate credit: This course may be taken for 3 Graduate credits (67.5 PDPs) through Fitchburg State University for an additional fee of $385 that is paid to "Fitchburg State University" at the first session. 
Register by: October 5, 2018. 

Register online through your district's SmartPD link, or NRC's SmartPD Registration link at: https://app.smartedu.net/nrc/pd/.
SST is listed in the "Curriculum & Instruction" category of trainings.

Time: 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM
Session Number: 19-102201

Description: Reflecting the national shift towards learning-focused supervision and evaluation, the Analyzing Teaching for Student Results (ATSR) course helps leaders zero in on high-leverage teaching strategies that make a difference to student learning. During the 42-hour ATSR course, participants examine and use both a common language and concept system about teaching to support any state framework. In addition, they develop skills for identifying and providing results-oriented reports and feedback based on observations and analysis of data from other sources including student achievement. This program is comprehensively redesigned to meet the requirements of the new teacher evaluation systems used in Massachusetts and other states. To apply the language and concepts to various states’ models, crosswalks have been developed for districts where RBT has already been working.

See October 2018 dates for the full description of this course.

Studying Skillful Teaching (SST): 
Promoting Motivation, Learning, and Achievement
 
Presenter: Janice Burres 
Research for Better Teaching (RBT)

Presenter: Janice Burres, RBT: Research for Better Teaching
Dates: Six dates throughout the school year: 
          2018: Nov.02, Nov.28, Dec.11, 2018.
          2019: Jan.09, Jan.28, and March.01, 2019.
Time: 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM
Session Number: 19-227801

Description: Nothing is more complex, challenging, or important than assuring high levels of learning for each and every student. And no single factor has a greater impact on student learning than skillful teaching. The Studying Skillful Teaching program is RBT's cornerstone program for building teachers' capacity - the knowledge and skills as well as the courage and conviction to promote students' motivation, learning, and increased achievement. It is based on the belief that teaching is a process of decision-making; and that skillful teachers never stop learning through experimentation, data analysis, study, and collegial sharing about what works best for their students. This reflective dialogue is an invaluable asset for building common and coherent language among educators. 

Outcomes: While receiving an overview to a comprehensive model of the knowledge base on teaching, participants will study, apply, and reflect on practical ways to: 

  • Examine powerful beliefs and expectations that influence students' motivations to learn; 
  • Support students in developing a growth mindset; 
  • Design lessons that focus students on what learning is most important (objective) and what success looks like (criteria for success); 
  • Apply research-based instructional strategies; 
  • Collect, analyze, and use formative assessment data to inform timely decisions about what happens next for students' learning; and 
  • Strengthen cultural proficiency in instruction, curriculum, class climate, and school environment. 

Audience: K-12 Educators 
Hours/PDPs: 37.5 hours; 67.5 PDPs 
Cost: $899 NRC member districts: $949; Non-member districts; includes SST text and substantial instructional materials (binder). 
Graduate credit: This course may be taken for 3 Graduate credits (67.5 PDPs) through Fitchburg State University for an additional fee of $385 that is paid to "Fitchburg State University" at the first session. 
Register by: October 5, 2018. 

Register online through your district's SmartPD link, or NRC's SmartPD Registration link at: https://app.smartedu.net/nrc/pd/.
SST is listed in the "Curriculum & Instruction" category of trainings. 

** Presenter: Janice Burres has worked in education as a classroom teacher and trainer and in the corporate world as a communication specialist for McKinsey, an international management consulting firm. She trained teachers throughout the U.S. in cooperative learning and writing across the curriculum and trained and coached consultants around the world on their writing, presentation, facilitation, and interpersonal skills. She is particularly interested in helping teachers work collaboratively.

Managing & Changing Difficult Classroom Behavior
That Interrupts Instruction

Presented by: Polly Bath, Cristia Lesher Associates

Date: Tuesday, March 19, 2019 
Time: 8:30 AM - 3:00 PM 
Session: 19-113201

Description: This excellent training gets right to the heart of the matter: how can educators help change difficult behavior in the classroom, not just manage it? The focus will be on: 

  • Avoiding the cycle-of-conflict and staying out of power struggles; 
  • Saying and doing the things that will reduce problem behaviors; 
  • Avoiding the removal of the same students from class by teaching them the skills they lack; 
  • Keeping a cool head and not taking poor behavior personally; 
  • Predicting which assignments will stimulate poor behavior in certain students and taking steps in advance; 
  • Managing confrontational behavior; 
  • Intervening in a hostile situation; 
  • Managing yourself in a conflict; 
  • Identifying the deficit skill areas (social and academic) of the defiant student; 
  • Identifying what has been done already to change the behavior but that hasn't worked; 
  • "Pinpointing" target behaviors on which to focus; 
  • Designing a plan or multiple plans to address the targeted behavior(s); 
  • Teaching the student new behavior skills; 
  • Designing and implementing behavior management "scripts" to address targeted behaviors (developed by Dr. Mike Mezzocchi); and 
  • Keeping the plan dynamic by assessing the plan and identifying changes if needed. 

Learn how to decrease disruptive behavior! Moreover, when confrontations do arise, learn how to keep your cool when everyone else is losing theirs!

Audience: K-12 General Ed & Special Ed Teachers and Administrators

PDP/COA: 6 hours. 
Registration Fee: $149 NRC member districts. $169 Other districts. 
Register by: Friday, March 1, 2019. Register online through your school district’s SmartPD link to the Collaborative offerings, through NRC’s SmartPD at www.northrivercollaborative.org on the PD webpage, or by fax or email.

About the Presenter: Polly Bath “is a widely recognized behavior expert in New England schools and beyond. She consults to and trains administrators, teachers, and paraprofessionals on how to manage and change difficult school behavior. She has gained her reputation most especially by teaching educators how to change the difficult behaviors that have been the most resistant to change. 
     
Her strategies are effective in the inclusive general education classroom as well as in special education settings. Her successful techniques come from her extensive experiences as a teacher of students with emotional and behavioral disorders, plus her extended work as the New England consulting associate of the late behavior legend Dr. Mike Mezzocchi.  
     
Whether you are looking to change the behavior of a child, a classroom, or a school, Polly can help. She is known for her practical and inspiring work and her trademark humor."

Analyzing Teaching for Student Results (ATSR)
Presenter: Reena Freedman 
Research for Better Teaching (RBT)

Presenter: Reena Freedman., RBT: Research for Better Teaching
Dates: Seven dates throughout the school year (Thursdays)
          2018: Oct.04, Oct.25, Nov.15, Dec.13, 2018.
          2019: Jan.17, Feb.14, and March.21, 2019.
Time: 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM
Session Number: 19-102201

Description: Reflecting the national shift towards learning-focused supervision and evaluation, the Analyzing Teaching for Student Results (ATSR) course helps leaders zero in on high-leverage teaching strategies that make a difference to student learning. During the 42-hour ATSR course, participants examine and use both a common language and concept system about teaching to support any state framework. In addition, they develop skills for identifying and providing results-oriented reports and feedback based on observations and analysis of data from other sources including student achievement. This program is comprehensively redesigned to meet the requirements of the new teacher evaluation systems used in Massachusetts and other states. To apply the language and concepts to various states’ models, crosswalks have been developed for districts where RBT has already been working.

See October 2018 dates for the full description of this course.

Description:  This SEI Teacher Endorsement Full Course focuses on current theories and evidence-based instructional practices related to the teaching of ELLs. This course is designed to promote continuous improvement in educator practice and to build teachers’ confidence and familiarity with research-proven practices for working with ELLs. Throughout the course, effective research-based strategies will be modeled. Teachers will have opportunities to: practice the modeled strategies, analyze their practice, provide and receive feedback, and reflect on their experiences. Through this cycle of reflective practice, teachers will gain new skills, knowledge, and dispositions for the education of English learners.
