Event description

Description

THIS Conference is for anyone interested in inclusive, caring classrooms or the Three Block Model of Universal Design for Learning.


Attendees may choose among three streams, each offering an intensive focus on one of the aspects of the Three Block Model of Universal Design for Learning.

Block One – Social Emotional Well-Being and Mental Health

This session will focus on creating democratic, caring classrooms that develop students’ pro-social problem solving and collaborative skills, self-worth, belonging, and empathy, as well as self-regulation. Programming related to positive mental health, well-being, and resiliency will also be emphasized.

Block Two – Inclusive Instructional Practice

This session will focus on a method of year planning and unit planning that incorporates inclusive practices such as Understanding by Design, Differentiated Instruction, Curriculum Integration, Inquiry, and Assessment for Learning. The model seeks to emphasize mastery of complex concepts, with scaffolding through teamwork and differentiated processes. Programming related to developing critical and creative thinking will be emphasized.

Block Three- Systems and Structures

This stream will focus on systemic structures and leadership for inclusion and UDL, including funding models, role assignments that allow collaboration and co-teaching to take place, and planning for meeting the needs of all children through intentional groupings, space, equipment, and personnel. As part of this, we will explore collaborative and consultative skills, and effective communication practices for collaborating with families, clinicians, and paraprofessionals.


Sessions will be 9am - 4pm daily, with the exception of Friday which will let out at 12pm.
