Incorporating Trauma-Informed Practices
within a PBIS Framework
November 10, 2020
Presenter Susan Barrett
This presentation will provide specific strategies for strengthening Tier 1 components with the features of trauma-informed practices. We will provide a crosswalk to help teachers a) create a safe, predictable, consistent environment, b) promote belonging and relationship development, c) teach and reinforce social-emotional-behavioral competencies, and d) support cognitive, emotional, and behavioral regulation. 
High Leverage Instructional Practices
November 17, 2020
Presenter Dr. Anita Archer
This webinar will focus on research-validated procedures including 1) Deliberate Practice, 2) Retrieval Practice, and 3) Spaced Practice. When these procedures are intentionally used, learning outcomes can be significantly increased, often doubled. Dr. Archer will present research on practice and give many examples that will illustrate the use of these procedures in elementary and secondary classes.
Creating Positive, Predictable, and Safe
Learning Environments for All
December 1, 2020
Presenter Dr. Brandi Simonsen
This webinar focuses on basic practices educators can use to support all students during remote, hybrid, and in-person learning. Building on the first Effective Environments webinar, Dr. Simonsen will provide a range of examples and share lessons learned from educators who have successfully created positive, predictable, and safe classrooms during an unprecedented fall semester.

with a Multi-Tiered Approach
December 8, 2020
Presenters Dr. Barbara Boon & Hadley Bachman
In this session, participants will explore family engagement through a theoretical model and the application of the MTSS model.
