Description:
Four Blocks/Comprehensive Literacy: Being able to read and write is critical to school success, future employment opportunities as well as providing a means of learning about the world and entertainment. Developed by Patricia Cunningham and Dottie Hall, Four Blocks works on the premise that all students can learn to read but they need a balance of working with words (sight words and phonics), guided reading to learn comprehension skills, writing, and self-selected reading. In this morning segment of the workshop, Barb Wollak will present this program's background and its proven effectiveness in Minnesota.

The Nurtured Heart Approach® is a set of core methodologies originally developed for working with the most difficult children. It has become a powerful way of bringing inner wealth to all children while facilitating classroom success. Deb West will present the afternoon segment regarding Nurtured Heart and its effectiveness.

Motivating children is the foundation for all successful teaching practices. The way we positively motivate our children has implications for their long-term development and learning. Creating a positive motivational outlook is important in kindergarten and the early grades. This seminar will focus on the importance of student motivation and engagement in full-day kindergarten. We will also explore what motivates us as practitioners to better use data and feedback for growth. Along with Dr. Holland we will explore how to build assessment and evaluation into practice to improve the learning of all kindergarten students as well as improvements in our own practices. Finally, we will wrap-up with ways to develop smooth transitions from grade to grade to allow children to experience successes as they grow and develop to keep children fully motivated and engaged in their learning.

Whether staff are supporting anxious individuals, defusing irrational outbursts, or responding to physical risks, some organizations need to creatively consider the “grey areas” that require staff attention.

Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® – MAPA® Edition introduces Certified Instructors to some of the MAPA® (Management of Actual or Potential Aggression) physical intervention skills and a behavioral risk assessment protocol that will expand perspectives around these circumstances.
This unique four-day advanced course:
• Expands the applicability of Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training.
• Offers alternative training content and facilitation techniques.
• Increases organizational resources for all parts of an ongoing Training Process.
• Unlocks the potential to include staff not previously trained by adding flexibility and expanding curriculum options.
• Offers new ways to teach Nonviolent Crisis Intervention® training and increase the program’s relevance.

Description:
The state requires that anyone doing electrical work of any kind must be licensed. Anyone can apply and be registered as an “unlicensed electrician.” However, there are restrictions as to what they are allowed to do. The one that is attractive to schools is using the “unlicensed” person to do repair work only. They can do repairs or replacement of existing equipment as long as they do it under a contractor’s license. There is no limit to the number of people who can take the required 2 hour training.

Please make sure that you fill out the Unlicensed Electrician Application on the Department of Labor & Industry website at this link https://secure.doli.state.mn.us/license/initialapp.aspx . You will need your license number when you take the class.
