Change Your Aim: Inclusive Practices for All Classrooms (Previously scheduled at 10:30)
When I believe that I have a voice, I speak. When I believe that my voice is valued, I listen. When I listen, I learn. Establishing classrooms in which students believe that their viewpoints matter results in students eager to interact with perspectives outside of their own personal frames of reference. And students who learn to appreciate the others’ points-of-view grow-up to be adults with global perspectives. In Change Your Aim: Inclusive Practices for All Classrooms, we look at working toward the inclusive classroom as a model for establishing equitable, supportive, and welcoming learning environments that foster the qualities necessary in becoming global citizens: self-confidence and motivation, teamwork, empathy, and reflection. Participants should expect a combination of slide presentation, discussion, and hands-on planning for next steps.

Fostering Equitable Student Learning Communities Through The Lens of Culturally Responsive Pedagogy
As support providers, it is not uncommon for mentors to decode the language of the CSTP with their teachers. One phrase that we see throughout the CSTP is culturally responsive pedagogy (CRP). CRP is not a series of static strategies but a mindset that requires continuous learning. In this session, participants will begin to think through how to connect the CSTP to teacher practice to create a more equitable learning environment for all students.

Induction and the Changing Face of Special Education
This presentation will focus on changes in special education and the initial preparation of special education teachers that have resulted in the need for change in the content and focus of induction programs. New evidence-based practices and programs are becoming well-established, as research plus teacher and administrator experience shape these practices for different contexts.
Significant modifications to the Preliminary Education Specialist standards will be presented, as background for understanding current and future beginning teachers’ bases of knowledge and skills. The evolution of Multi-tiered Systems of Support, Social-Emotional Learning, and collaboration and co-planning/co-teaching practices and their place in Individualized Learning Plans will be described, with examples. We will examine how these approaches and practices are aligned with CTC Induction Standards.
A study of the needs of beginning special education teachers in induction, as stated by the teachers themselves, will be the second part of this presentation. The variety of concerns as well as the commonalities will promote a constructive discussion among participants. There will be room in the conversation for beginning teachers, experienced teachers, induction mentors, and administrators to contribute and question.
The presentation methods will include a welcoming activity, presentation slides with embedded interactive activities, and a facilitated discussion. A handout and QR code for links to relevant resources will be available.

Vetting the Skills - Create your own Micro-Credential Badging for Mentors
The breakout session will highlight the Level Up Your Mentorship, ( LUYM) microcredential created and run through the Orange County Department of Education.
Participants will be guided through a virtual field-trip with the LUYM and will participate in an interactive, mock creative process of building program specific microcredential badges. The California Teaching Commission requires every California Induction program to document the mentor growth for mentors participating in their programs. LUYM does this in an engaging and effective way. As the mentors complete the activities, they earn badges that lead to the microcredential. Instead of creating more things for the mentors to do, the LUYM activities parallel the mentoring process throughout the year. Each activity provides program specific opportunities for the participants to enhance their mentoring practice, as well as reflect and document their skills and growth.
Administrators or coaches could also use this microcredential process, as a high engagement feature to vet their teachers in specific target areas of knowledge, skill or ability.
