Presenter: Walter Lee
Love is a term that is often used in the work of education. But what does it mean to truly love in the middle? In this session, Walter lee will explore the praxis of revolutionary love through the lens of critical consciousness while offering some implications to refine pedagogical practices. Ultimately, middle level students can be renewed as a result of their schooling experience..."this we believe." For the critical times we and the students are living in, it requires revolutionary love.

Teaching our students social-emotional competence is key for their future success. What if we taught our students (and ourselves) how to change mindsets and look at stressors differently? LeAnn will share the details and examples of this stress mindset and the 20 tools that your students can use daily to empower their thoughts, actions and resiliency. We’ll look at numerous examples of how teachers can cultivate this more positive mindset and model it when they encounter stressors. Be prepared to design your own “Stress Toolkit”.

Presenter: Kristie Smith
How can we facilitate civil, middle-grades appropriate conversations that build and support students’ development of social consciousness and social comprehension? How can we host safe spaces for our students’ honest dialogue about social issues such as inequity, racism and anti-blackness, Islamophobia, and homophobia? One way to open and to sustain this dialogue is through story. This session will spur thinking, discussion, and inquiry about the need for, options for, and instructional possibilities for a range of diverse middle-grades-facing literature. We will consider texts, topics, and pathways for conversation and shared thinking about hard, but real social topics for exploration within the middle grades classroom.

Executive Functioning: What it really means, and how to apply it in your classroom tomorrow!

The path to learning and a calm classroom, remote or in person, is a calm brain. The disruption of our students’ routines during COVID-19 has had a serious impact on their executive functioning skills – the core of SEL. As our students continue to learn online, or return to the classroom, it will be more important than ever to equip them with the skills to self-regulate, understand each other, and develop the brain functioning and social skills that will help them adapt and succeed.

Join our expert panel of teachers and neuroscientists in this virtual 2-day workshop about executive functioning in young adolescents. Explore the key science & research behind executive functioning - including the impact of trauma, autism, & ADHD. Uncover the most effective executive functioning strategies for students of all abilities and ages. And understand the myths and realities around executive functioning - including educator learning pearls, and practical strategies you can apply with your students tomorrow!

Stress, anxiety, and other challenges are now a norm for many of the students in school today. Due to these challenges, students are missing classes, disengaging from interaction in physical and virtual classrooms because they are overwhelmed, and experiencing conflict with peers due to their inability to manage their emotions. This session collates years of research to give school leaders a practical guide on how to instill the social and emotional skills students need to make better decisions both in school and outside of school.
