Don’t Miss These 3 Great Learning Opportunities!

IF YOU ANSWER YES TO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS, you may want to register now for these upcoming sessions:

1. Do you hunger for more information as to why some of your students behave the way they do?  Would it help to be able to identify the Antecedent (predictor) to particular Behaviors and have a better influence on the Consequences?  Come learn the A-B-Cs of Behavior Management at TIP 504, scheduled for Wednesday, November 30th in Buellton.

2. Do you have students adding English as a language?  Do you have students on IEPs through Special Ed?  Do you ever wonder about the relationships between the two?  If you’d like to be able to distinguish between typical academic struggle as language is acquired and struggle in those with a possible disability, this class is a MUST.  Dr. Jarice Butterfield is a statewide expert on the subject and will lead the session with lots of time for your questions on Wednesday, December 7th in Buellton.

3. Do you want more tech ideas?  Are you looking for additional ways to use technology at both the student and teacher levels?  The Ed Tech Exploratorium will be held in both Santa Maria (Dec 13) and Santa Barbara (Dec 15) and offers an “Ed Camp” style session with TONS of examples and take away resources to explore and put into practice.  Don’t miss out on the chance to learn with others and leave with an amazing digital binder full of new tools!

Time is running out!  Email induction@sbceo.org by Monday, November 7 to register.

Finally, we are pleased to announce that all of our sites now offer wifi accessibility, so please bring a device that will afford access to the online classroom if you’re able.  We suggest that candidates also have last year’s ILP stored locally on this device.
