Thinking Maps®: Linking Teaching, Leading and Learning: an Administrator Overview Description: Today’s schools and districts are complex places full of classrooms that are home to students with a range of needs, all expected to achieve the same, high Common Core Standards. Teachers are faced with new curriculum, new standards and new evaluation and testing systems. Leaders are faced with new demands for evaluation and professional practice and bear the responsibility of supporting all staff and students to meet the new standards. In this time where everything is getting harder, teachers, leaders and learners need something to help make accomplishing all of this more efficient and effective. This overview provides insight into how THINKING MAPS® can be used to support every person in a learning community- student, parent, teacher, school leaders, district leaders and school boards- in every content area, at every level. THINKING MAPS® can transform teaching, learning and leading in your district to meet the complex demands of life in the 21st Century. There are additional courses in the PD catalog for those who are interested in pursuing Thinking Maps.

Contact: Dina Roselli 914-345-8500 ext. 3130 droselli@swboces.org Heroin and Other Opioid Addiction: Modernization of Health Education Curriculum Description: In response to heroin and opioid abuse in New York State and across the nation, NYSED has amended Education Law and asked each school district to update its health education curriculum to include the most up-to date, age-appropriate information available regarding the misuse and abuse of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, including but not limited to heroin and opioids. Research indicates that addiction to heroin or other opioids creates a wide range of social, legal and familial problems, which in turn puts stress on the community and its service systems. There is notable increase in criminal behavior, in addition to drug dealing, which can include shoplifting, mugging, breaking and entering, car theft, identity theft and prostitution. The community may also see an increase in domestic violence and child protective cases, with more removals and more foster care placements; an increase in school absenteeism and failure; an increase in ambulance calls and emergency room visits for overdoses, violent crime victims, and infections, including HIV and STDs; and a generalized sense of apprehension and unease among community residents. Responding to opioid addiction requires research-based knowledge regarding the changes in the brain of the person exposed to opioids, how those changes affect behavior, and the impact of addictive behavior on the family and the greater community. In this program, participants will review the basic structure of the adolescent brain; examine brain-based changes in structure and function after exposure to heroin or other opioids and the impact on behavior; identify the specific opioid subtypes (e.g., Roxanol or Opana; and other prescription pain medications) that may be found in the community; explore effective prevention strategies to use when discussing heroine and opioids with students and review resources including models of treatment.
