National Board Certification and You!
Limited Capacity seats available

A decade of research shows that students of Board-certified teachers learn more than their peers without Board-certified teachers. Studies have also found that the positive impact of having a Board-certified teacher is even greater for minority and low-income students. Come learn about the revised National Board Certification process and how it can transform your teaching. We will cover the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) 5 Core Propositions, Architecture of Accomplished Teaching, and Library Media Standards. Participants will have a brief overview of the Assessment Center activity and 3 written Portfolio entries for LMS's with tips and tricks for success along the way.

Component 1 - Content Knowledge
Component 2 - Differentiation in Instruction
Component 3 - Teaching Practice and Learning Environment
Component 4 - Effective and Reflective Practitioner

National Board Certification requires candidates to evaluate their current teaching practice. It is specific to your unique teaching situation and will directly impact your students.

Free Reading Resources for Students with Print & Physical Disabilities
Limited Capacity seats available

Come to this session and learn about free organizations that work under a copyright exemption—the Chafee Amendment—which grants nonprofit organizations the ability to make books available to people with print disabilities without publisher permission. There are many students with IEP and 504 plans in schools that could greatly benefit from these resources. The items can easily be downloaded via an app or in some cases, even delivered for free to their home with a special playing device. As librarians, we need to spread the word about these resources to all patrons that could take advantage. Come to this session and learn all about them.

Trauma Sensitive School Libraries
Limited Capacity filling up

Many of the learners we work with struggle with fear as a result of trauma or Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) manifesting into struggles in academics, absenteeism, social challenges, and anxiety. Learners are resilient and given the right environmental conditions and interventions, the symptoms associated with trauma may be reduced.School libraries are in a unique position in the school setting to provide this sort of environment for students. Because the school library serves all students in the school, it is likely that a proportion of our students have experienced trauma. We can develop long-term, supportive relationships with students and create spaces in which they might find support, understanding, and healing. This session will examine what to look for in identifying learners who have experienced trauma in their lives and ways we can support them in becoming more resilient.
