    ELT is excited to roll out the latest online seminar for school-related professional members that offers timely and useful strategies while allowing flexibility to learn at one's own pace.

    Understanding Trauma and Supporting Traumatized Students

    Increasingly our students experience exposure to multiple or prolonged traumatic events, such as child abuse, neglect, and domestic violence. This experience directly affects their social and emotional development and negatively impacts their behavior and academic growth in school. It is becoming more common that school staff is faced with the challenges of connecting with, and educating, students who have endured complex trauma. Often, the hurt that is felt by the student is transferred to the school personnel and it can manifest in a variety of ways. This seminar will engage participants in understanding the roots of trauma, its prevalence and causes, the characteristics and associated behaviors, as well as learning how to work with traumatized students in a proactive and positive way.

    Other online seminars for SRPs include:

    Bully, Bullied or Bystander
    Dealing with Difficult Behaviors
    Disability Awareness
    Our World, Our Students
    Poverty and Its Effect on Learning
    Recognizing and Managing Conflict
    Supporting Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

    ELT has your next Superintendent's Conference Day covered.

    Supporting and Sustaining the Social-Emotional Needs of English Learners Who Experience Trauma is a three-hour site-based seminar that is geared for all educators (teachers, school-related professionals, school psychologists, social workers, guidance counselors, administrators, nurses, etc.)

    While training on trauma is prevalent in many parts of the state, the niche for this seminar will be looking at it through the unique experiences of English learners. The seminar provides tools for educators in recognizing and dealing with trauma-informed behaviors, establishing a supportive school environment for social and emotional healing, building trusting relationships with this fragile cohort.

    Download ELT's flyer for a full description or the seminar request form and schedule you next conference day.

    This seminar can be used toward meeting the Language Acquisition requirement and fulfilling Continuing Teacher & Leader Education (CTLE) requirements as NYSUT ELT is an approved provider.

    ELT in collaboration with the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN) is excited to offer new LGBTQ seminars to educators

    Inclusive Curriculum: Incorporating LGBTQ Topics into the Classroom
    GLSEN Research found that LGBTQ students who attend schools with curriculum that is inclusive of LGBTQ people, history, and events have more accepting schools and better academic outcomes. ( https://www.glsen.org/article/2017-national-school-climate-survey-1 ) Furthermore, inclusive curriculum can benefit all students by exposing them to more inclusive and accurate accounts of history and promoting respect. This seminar provides educators with GLSEN's resources and LGBTQ-inclusive lessons that can be integrated into their existing curriculum. The goal of the seminar is to better understand the benefits of inclusive curriculum for all students and to provide awareness of tools and resources that align with current mandates yet enrich instruction for all students. (2 or 3 hour seminar)

    Creating Safer Spaces for LGBTQ Students
    This seminar encourages discussions and provides a deeper awareness of the supports needed for LGBTQ students to thrive. We will review national statistics from GLSEN's 2017 National School Climate Survey (https://www.glsen.org/article/2017-national-school-climate-survey-1), share resources and tools for creating an inclusive school environment, and focus on how educators can create classrooms free of bullying and harassment for LGBTQ students (2 or 3 hour seminar)
