Register Online: https://mysoundview.square.site/s/shophosted at Soundview, 6132 Motor Ave SW, Lakewood

The seminar includes strategies for closing the achievement gap for improving the learning experiences of diverse students, especially those who are struggling to achieve at high levels. Clock hours and dinner included $10. Culture: Look at cultural differences by learning about the cultures that students bring to school -- their everyday experiences -- and connect these experiences to what is taught.  Abilities: Recognize the abilities students have learned in their homes and communities that do not show up on standardized tests, but can contribute to academic success. Resilience: Cultivate resilience in students to help them persevere in school, despite repeated failure or discouragement they may have experienced in their environment. Effort: Find out how students who are difficult to motivate are motivated outside of school, and bring those interests inside the schoolhouse where they can be used to direct students toward academics.

Supporting Students' Social and Emotional Learning "Why are you doing this?"

Trainers Mary Snyder and Tabitha Ellison bring to Soundview members this unique training development in partnership with Pacific Luthern University. The thinking strategies and tools shared in this session will help school staff working with students who are struggling with social or emotional challenges.  If you work with students whose reactions don’t seem to match the size of the problem, whose thinking is rigid and inflexible, or who engage in negative self-talk, this is the session for you! The presentation focuses on neuroscience and strategies to help educators understand possible reasons for student behavior and how we might respond differently in teaching these students, using specific supports. Participants will leave with several tools to support students’ social and emotional learning. Dinner Included
