Calling All Learners: Creating Inclusive and Respectful Classroom Culture
Saturday, 04/08/2017 (09:00 AM - 03:30 PM)

Classroom with Children

“Helping young children understand differences: Getting to the roots of inclusion”

Young children are naturally curious and begin to understand the world by recognizing human differences from a young age. Early Childhood professionals have an important role in helping young children develop a foundation of respect and inclusion. This work shop will focus on practical strategies for helping young children understand and appreciated differences.

“Transitions, Traditions, Routines & Rituals: Learning where you would least expect it”

Putting coats away, transitioning from activity to activity, putting things away, washing hands, cleaning up, etc. etc. This things seem to happen day in day weather we think about them or not. By carefully attending to transitions, traditions, routines and rituals early childhood professionals have the opportunity to foster positive relationships, build social skills and create a positive classroom/program culture. This workshop will feature strategies and ideas you can use to build a positive classroom culture.

“Creating Meaningful Family Involvement Plans: Work Session”

Family engagement is a cornerstone of a thriving positive & respectful program culture. Family involvement in early childhood programs has been associated with positive child outcomes such as, social competence, communication skills, cognitive development and expressive language skills. This workshop will present a framework for creating comprehensive family involvement plans, which participants will create as part of the workshop.

Youth Mental Health First Aid Training
Saturday, 04/22/2017 (08:30 AM - 05:00 PM)

Get FREE Youth Mental Health First Aid Training! Sometimes, the best first aid is you. (No fee but pre-registration is required.) 

You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, neighbor — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. YMHFA, a National Council for Behavioral Health program, teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care. Anyone can take the 8-hour course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people ages 12-18.

Take the course, save a life, strengthen your community. Free training with breakfast snacks, lunch, and course book provided. Participants will receive 8 hours of professional development time with certificates available.

Presented by UNH Cooperative Extension Youth & Family Field Specialists: Rick Alleva, Ed.D. & Gail Kennedy, MSW.

Food Systems Soils Workshop for Educators
Wednesday, 04/26/2017 (04:00 PM - 06:30 PM)

 

Soil is the most important component of growing food.  Humans rely directly on the health of the soil in which they are growing food.  

Food Systems thinking involves a holistic approach to examining how our food is grown, harvested, packed, shipped and eaten.  Educating our youth about Food Systems is relevant, rigorous, engaging and involves the inquiry process.  

In this workshop, we will explore the science behind soil and ways to engage youth in this topic.
