Delaware's soils are natural resources that we rely upon to produce food, sustain healthy, biologically diverse natural ecosystems, protect water quality, and provide an aesthetically pleasing landscape for our communities. Understanding our soil resources and managing them well requires science-based knowledge of the biology, chemistry, and physics of the soil environment. This workshop will illustrate how knowledge of modern plant biology, landscape horticulture and design, and soil biology, chemistry and physics can be used to relate basic scientific principles to issues that are familiar and important to high school students.

Moving Students Beyond Risk to Resiliency:

A Practical Approach to Protective Factor Enhancement for All Students #6485A

Tim Burns, Educare Institute

October 9, 2009

8:30 a.m. ­ 3:30 p.m. Administrators, Nurses, Counselors, and Teachers K-12 Delaware Tech Terry Campus Corporate Training Center, Room 407 A & B 100 Campus Drive Dover, Delaware

Are you looking for ways to help your "at-risk" students become more resilient to adversity? Tim Burns returns to Delaware with a presentation based on the premise that risk factors are, or can be, starting points leading to deep change. Research clearly supports the view that when educators move from a perception of "at-risk students" to one of "students-at promise" their students' academic, social, and emotional well-being can be significantly enhanced. Workshop participants will learn about the Significant Six protective factors, including the single most important protective factor ensuring positive outcomes for students. In addition, participants will leave with a clear understanding of the framework and tools for using the risk factors as a starting place for developing resiliency in all students. A manual accompanies this workshop. Tim Burns is an educator, author, and presenter with a keen interest in human development, learning, and creativity -- and an enjoyable and engaging way of teaching about them. His background includes over thirty years of experience as classroom teacher, counselor, First Offender Program facilitator, adolescent and family drug-treatment program director, university instructor, and staff development specialist. He has worked with over two thousand schools and organizations across the United States and abroad.

In addition to book illustration, Parrish also undertook hundreds of commissions for magazine covers, advertisements, and lithographs that reveal both his sense of humor and his eye for graphic design. This exhibition presents a comprehensive sampling of Parrish's printed works, offering insight into the multifaceted relationship between the worlds of commercial and fine art. Participating teachers will receive a guided tour of this special exhibition in addition to attending a lecture by Curator Margaretta Frederick entitled Parrish's Wilmington Connection.

Case studies illustrate the progression of reading development; the influences of biological, genetic, cognitive, environmental, and instructional factors in learning to read; and the components of effective reading instruction. A "four-part processing system" model is explored in detail. Module 2: This module introduces phonemes (speech sounds) and discusses the importance of phonological awareness in reading and spelling instruction. Module 2 also discusses the features of consonants and vowels and covers some of the problems that children who speak other languages or dialects may have when learning English. Module 3: This module explores the structure and history of English spelling from several angles: phoneme-grapheme correspondences, letter patterns within words, syllables, meaningful word parts (morphemes), and historical layers in the orthography. The module addresses differences between syllables and morphemes, between "irregular" and "high-frequency" words, and among six syllable types. After learning this content, teachers can approach phonics, spelling, and word study with confidence. There is a fee of $750.00 for all three modules or $275.00 each.

Multisensory techniques that support blending sounds for reading and segmenting sounds for spelling will also be taught. The principles of syllable division will be taught as well as the role of accent in multisyllable words. Participants will learn about the prefixes, roots, and suffixes that comprise a large percentage of multisyllable words and how knowledge of these morphemes is an additional aid in decoding.

They are designed to be short (one minute) fluency measures used to regularly monitor the development of prereading and early reading skills. The measures were developed upon the essential early literacy domains discussed in both the National Reading Panel (2000) and National Research Council (1998) reports to assess student development of phonological awareness, alphabetic understanding, and automaticity and fluency with the code. Each measure has been thoroughly researched and demonstrated to be reliable and valid indicators of early literacy development and predictive of later reading proficiency to aid in the early identification of students who are not progressing as expected. When used as recommended, the results can be used to evaluate individual student development as well as provide grade-level feedback toward validated instructional objectives.

This workshop will focus on an understanding of how the Earth's systems interact, and how we can best manage our world without dramatically impacting the planet's ecosystems and disrupting the balance of nature. In order to sustain our needs, including food, water, heating, and transportation, people have invented technologies that can and have changed the way the planet works as a whole. We have changed the balance of the Earth's systems. Careless applications of our technology can and have dramatically altered the natural Earth System. The workshop will include the use of Earth WalkTM, a 16' X 20' floor map of the continental United States which features a high resolution satellite image with true life earth colors; define the parts of the Earth's Systems - Land, Air, Water, and Life; demonstrate how the parts of the Earth's Systems work together to make the Earth function as a whole; illustrate how the Earth itself is part of larger systems; introduce the ECHO the Bat book; and integrate the use of satellite imagery to examine surface features with Focus on Earth Walk.

The light that we see with our eyes - visible light -represents only a small portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. Developing the technology to detect and use other portions of the electromagnetic spectrum, the invisible light that our eyes cannot see, has had a tremendous impact on our daily lives. When you listen to a radio, heat your food in a microwave oven, use a remote control, or have an x-ray taken, you are using "invisible" light. During this workshop, teachers will construct a simple telescope, spectroscope, and investigate invisible light. Teachers will build and calibrate their spectroscope and use it to examine light from different sources. Using specialized instruments at different stations (visible, infrared, and ultraviolet), groups will conduct experiments. This will allow teachers the opportunity to learn techniques to help students discover that invisible light is as real as visible.

During this workshop teachers will participate in a sail aboard the Kalmar Nyckel, an authentic recreation of the squared-rigged tall ship that brought soldiers and settlers from Sweden to found the first permanent settlement in Delaware and the first Swedish colony in the New World. The ship provides an outstanding living-history platform upon which to teach a variety of social studies standards. The goal of this sail is to have teachers experience first-hand how they and their students can use the Kalmar Nyckel to meet a host of social studies standards. Trained educators will lead participants through a variety of educational lessons available aboard the ship. Activities include sail handling, using simple machines, belaying lines to learn about friction, role playing, and taking observations to make navigational decisions. Information about student sails will be explored. Students who sail aboard the ship are not just walking through a fascinating museum of maritime and colonial history, but are aboard a working sailing ship on which they can experience first hand what it was like to live aboard and sail a ship of the seventeenth century. Join us for a wonderful opportunity to make history come alive by actively engaging the mind and body in this unique setting. A certificate of attendance will be granted for 1.5 clock hours.
