course #2409, 6 clock hours
Educational Leaders will evaluate the lenses of themselves and their colleagues that limit student behavioral change as well as reinforce systemic and historically exclusionary practices; identifying frameworks that will help to cultivate alternative lenses from which to view behavioral approaches. They will look at ways to coach teachers for lasting and equitable change by applying high leverage practices and other research-based methodology. This course is for those who already have a basic understanding of: growth mindset, implicit bias, ACEs, restorative practices, PBIS, and functional analysis of behavior. We recommend you take the foundational course before the coaching and mentoring version where time is spent introducing these concepts.
Participants should be able to:
- Recognize our own lenses, as well as those of our colleagues, as we view educator behaviors that limit student behavioral change, as well as reinforce systemic and historically exclusionary practices.
- Cultivate alternative lenses and frameworks to better understand and strengthen behavioral responses both individually and school-wide.
- Apply these lenses and frameworks when using tools/interventions to create more inclusive practices.
