Project ACHIEVE's On-Line/On-Demand PD Courses: Proactive, Proven, and Practical
Over the past 40 years, Dr. Howie has delivered thousands of keynotes, presentations, seminars, master classes, workshops, and courses across the country and internationally. Based on these and his successful, on-site work in the field, he has developed a series of on-line courses that are current, informative, practical, and that produce real student, staff, and school results. These courses utilize Project ACHIEVE's evidence-based school improvement and excellence model, but they also reflect-- and help to address-- the current and real challenges faced by educators today.
His current courses include:
Course 2: Coping with Stress in a Stressful World: Teaching Students How to Manage Their Emotions, Thoughts, and Behavior
This four-session video-course is for administrators, general and special education teachers, related service professionals (counselors, educational/school psychologists, social workers), and other interested educators or clinicians.
The course differentiates between anxiety, stress, and trauma, and discuss how students’ emotional “triggers” result in fight, flight, or freeze responses. We talk about ways to teach students emotional self-regulation in the classroom so that they learn how to prevent and prepare for stressful situations. And, we address how to analyze why some students still have difficulties, and what cognitive-behavioral interventions our mental health professionals may need to consider. All of this is adapted for both general and special education classrooms.
Course 3: Implementing Effective Multi-Tiered Systems of Supports: Academic and Social-Emotional Prevention, Assessment, and Intervention
This seven-session (with two Bonus Sessions) video-course is for district and school administrators, student service and special education directors, related services personnel, and other interested educators or community practitioners.
This seven-session (with two Bonus Sessions) professional development video-course provides everything that districts and schools need to evaluate, redesign, and implement their own successful multi-tiered systems of support. Designed for district and school administrators, student service and special education directors, and related services personnel, this is accomplished by providing field-tested tested, step by step information on how (a) to implement a sequential MTSS process with decision rules on involving consultants, early intervention specialists, the MTSS Building-level Team, and services for students with disabilities; (b) to establish a well-functioning MTSS Building-level Team; (c) use a science-to-practice data-based problem-solving process to analyze struggling students; and (d) how to link functional assessment results to high probability of success academic or social, emotional, and behavioral interventions.
