Mentoring for Optimism in Teaching

Recent research has demonstrated that optimism in teaching matters. Great teachers from the past understood this as well. By examining the work of great teachers both past and present, teacher education faculty can help mentor pre-service teachers to discover the effect of optimism in their work.

Working with Pre-Service Teachers to Effectively Integrate Technology Aligned with High-Leverage Practices and Evidence-Based Practices

By looking at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Student and Educator technology standards, and aligning them with high-leverage (HLP) and evidence-based practices (EBP), we will talk about how to work with pre-service teachers to ensure they have the knowledge to effectively integrate technology in their clinical practice. We will start by discussing the Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability and Reform (CEEDAR) Innovation Configurations, and then provide examples of videos, technology resources, and online learning opportunities. During the presentation, the attendees will work together to contribute to a shared document containing links and resources to take back with them to your institutions.

Reimagine Professional Development through Connected Learning Projects

Leading relevant professional development continues to be a constant struggle for P-12 school leaders that are challenged by shrinking budgets and little time for organized PD. Through a new pilot project between the Georgetown College Principal Program and Kentucky school districts, this presentation will offer a new and innovative approach to professional learning during the 2019-20 school year through a "Podcast Study Project" that can be embedded within current Professional Learning Communities (PLC). Let's flip those PLC meetings into Connected Learning Projects (CLP).

"Do you think this is something that's appropriate?": Supporting Students Who Witness Racism  in their Field Placements

Two students in the Elementary Teacher Education Program reported witnessing racist actions by a cooperating teacher, an assistant principal, and a substitute teacher while in their field placements. Unsure of how to respond, this presentation will discuss the ways in which faculty supported the students in making sense of and reacting to these moments.

Teaching Middle Level Mathematics with Growth Mindset Practices

Further, questions, prompts and strategies will be presented for discussion on how to begin the process of a paradigm shift.

Using a Global Lens to Foster Equity and Intercultural Understanding in ways that Embrace Cultural Diversity in PK-12 Classrooms: Strategies and Tools for Mentoring Novice Teachers

In this session, presenters will share strategies and tools mentors can use to help novice teachers foster equity and intercultural understanding using a global lens in the classrooms where they student teach in ways that embrace cultural diversity. The resources we will discuss have been generated through an initiative embedded in the University of Kentucky’s Educator Preparation Program to help teacher candidates foster equity and intercultural understanding using a global lens in the classrooms where they student teach. Session participants will have an opportunity to consider the value of these resources for use when collaborating with teachers in partner schools who mentor their student teachers as well as when working directly with student teachers.

Exceptional Partnerships:   The Role of Dispositions in the Preparation of Exceptional Candidates

Dispositions are a key component in the development of exceptional educators.

Choice as an Antecedent Behavior Intervention Provided to Children with Emotional Disturbances

Students with ED typically demonstrate social, behavioral, and academic deficiencies within the school setting. This presentation will address the antecedent behavior intervention (ABI) of the provision of choice-making opportunities which are an effective practice within the PBIS framework. Results will be shared from a single-subject multiple-baseline across-participants design that examined the effect of choice-making provided in social skills instruction on both academic (i.e., correct responses) and behavioral outcomes (i.e., task engagement, disruptions) for three elementary-aged students with ED.
