The webinar will discuss schools’ obligations outlined in the discipline guidance, provide suggestions for increasing positive behavior by students and addressing misbehavior when it occurs, and provide an explanation of how the discipline guidance interacts with Title IX, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex by recipients of Federal financial assistance in their education programs or activities.
Join us for a discussion on the discipline guidance and how it relates to the work being done to reduce sex discrimination in schools.

- Micromessaging - Houston Independent School DistrictStarts: 1:30 pmEnds: April 26, 2014 - 2:30 pmLocation: Houston, TXDescription: Workshop for 1st year Middle School and High School educators announced:
Come to an interactive workshop series to explore ways to achieve equity in the classroom, and improve student outcomes. The first hour-long session was March 1 and the follow up session will be held April 26. Key topics include micromessages to enhance student engagement and growth mindset to increase student performance.
Micromessages are small, subtle, often semi-conscious messages we send while communicating with others, whether by voice, action, or body language. These messages can be both positive or negative, stem from our implicit biases, and affect relationships. Through an interactive scenario based activity, participants will be able to identify micromessages and recommend positive micro-affirmations to improve equity in the classroom scenarios.
Growth mindset is a belief that through practice and effort, one has the potential to learn new skills, increase knowledge, improve ability, and meet challenges. Individuals that maintain a “fixed” mindset believe that they are born with a predetermined amount of unchangeable ability and intelligence, and that they will not be successful at meeting challenges, even with effort. Through an interactive activity, participants will practice developing micro-affirmations to encourage a growth mindset and increase self-efficacy to improve student performance.
