Mediation to Restore Respect
Spaces Remaining: 72
Unresolved conflicts in schools build barriers to learning, including low motivation, lack of focus, and disruptive behaviors that remove students from the classroom. With the passage of SB 100, Illinois school districts are seeking restorative interventions that build positive school relationships and model social skills. Data show mediation as highly effective in repairing relationships and boosting understanding across racial lines. The goal of mediation is to restore the respect so teachers can teach and students can learn. This workshop will share evidence-based restorative mediation techniques for use with teachers and students in Grades K-12. The workshop will show the process of starting a teacher-student mediation program, conducting successful mediations, and collecting and monitoring data to measure the effectiveness of the interventions. The workshop will also show how to use the technique to mediate conflicts between students to stop aggressive and bullying behaviors.

AA #1451 Teacher Evaluator Competency Skill Building for Pre-Qualified Teacher Evaluators (Part 2 of 3)
Spaces Remaining: 23
Administrators who evaluate teachers must demonstrate a high rate of inter-rater reliability, and communicate evaluation outcomes in constructive and supportive ways. Administrators who evaluate teachers must also recognize and control for bias when conducting an evaluation and determining results. School districts in Illinois must provide professional development to administrators to strengthen these skills on a sustained basis. This course focuses on Domains 1 and 4, and is intended to move administrators who have passed the ISBE evaluator training, and who are very familiar with Charlotte Danielson’s 2011/2013 Framework for Teaching, from compliance to competency. This course requires participants to pre-conference, record data according to the Professional Practice rubric, and participate in mock pre/post conference as evaluator, teacher, or observer. Participants will also be expected to have a high degree of inter-rater reliability when they determine a final rating based on the evidence gathered for Domains 1 and 4. This course is two in a series of three courses focusing on teacher evaluator competency requirements.
