Anti-Bias Teacher Training
A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute Teacher Training provides teachers and administrators with the knowledge, awareness, and skills to respond to prejudice and discrimination. Focusing on bias, identity-based bullying, and intergroup conflict, facilitated discussion of anti-bias education also enables teachers to help students address bias and prejudice in their school community. Throughout this interactive session, Personal and Cultural Identity activities help participants explore the ways they identify themselves and how their personal and cultural identities shape their thoughts, attitudes and perceptions of others. Understanding the Language of Bias includes activities that assist participants in establishing a common language for discussing issues associated with bias. Examining Bias activities assist in developing participants’ capacity to recognize and acknowledge prejudice and discrimination in themselves, in others and within institutions. Assessment activities involve participants in a process of examining personal attitudes and behaviors and organizational policies and practices for bias and inequity.

Data Driven and Differentiated Induction Mentor Development (Previously scheduled at 2:30)
With the focus on quality mentor development in the recently revised California Induction Program Standards, questions that arise include: How does the Induction program support the development of quality mentors? How does the Induction program collect data on the effectiveness of mentor development?  How does an Induction program determine the content and focus of mentor training? How does the Induction program provide differentiated options for mentors of varying levels of experience and expertise?  

In this interactive session participants will explore the answers to these questions and establish a path forward in developing a more responsive and targeted approach to mentor development. With guidance from facilitators, participants will:

1) Evaluate the effectiveness of current mentor training opportunities through exploration and analysis of a variety of quantitative and qualitative data collection tools.
2) Analyze trends in mentor data to inform both the content and format of mentor professional learning
3) Reimagine the content of their current training through the use of a mentor development rubric or continue exploration of digital remote and independent mentor training formats.

Fostering a Culture of Continuous Growth Through Induction and Beyond
How can districts foster a culture of continuous learning for teachers? The San Diego County Office of Education will share a process for developing growth-based professional learning systems that focus on enhancing teacher capacity by building a bridge between Induction, teacher growth and evaluation. Presenters will share models of how districts across San Diego are creating teacher evaluation systems that embrace the idea of professional learning as a central component to educator effectiveness. Participants will learn structures for developing a common language of effective teaching and learning, aligning professional development to teacher needs, providing opportunities for meaningful feedback, and building capacity of administrators to foster a culture of continuous improvement.

During the session participants will examine research-based components of effective professional learning systems, review professional articles on how changing the culture of teacher evaluation can foster continuous growth through a teacher’s career, engage in discussions for utilizing the CSTP to develop district-wide common language of effective teaching, and reflect upon key learnings from pioneer districts.
Participants will walk away with clear processes for guiding the development of a growth-based system of professional learning and evaluation in their district.

Helping New Teachers Achieve Equity and Excellence Through Student Talk
Sponsored Presentation. This interactive presentation outlines how induction program leaders and school/district administrators can help new teachers build inclusive classrooms that drive more equitable student outcomes through student talk. Research shows when students talk more in class, they learn more and score higher on standardized tests. But the average teacher talks for 80% of class—and this problem is particularly acute among new teachers. Attend this presentation to learn how to help new teachers automatically measure student talk in their classrooms, receive personalized feedback on student-centered instructional practices, and get students to do more of the talking and learning—without you having to be in the back of their classrooms all the time.

Tools and Tidbits for Addressing the Challenges and Concerns of New Teachers
Sponsored Presentation. Meeting the diverse needs of our new teachers is a challenge of great interest for all of us. If you want to expand and refine your repertoire of ways to support new teachers as they learn to deal with the possibilities and pitfalls they face, join us to explore tools and tidbits from practitioners and researchers across the country. With an emphasis on practicality, the resources we explore will be explicitly linked to components of the CSTP; that way, you will know which tool to use when. Plus, you will walk away with not only your notes but ready-to-use tools tucked into your conference bag!

Your First Steps to Stress Less
Stress methods are easy to teach. They are also easily forgotten when the bumpy months of the school year hit. We can't eliminate stress, but we can develop the skill to work through the rough patches of the school year. You will learn the skills and gain momentum as I help you start a stress management practice to do yourself or with your fellow educators.
