Did you know Class of 2020 students may begin their capstone or work/service efforts THIS SUMMER! In our recent blogOperation Graduation: Get Ready for the Class of 2020, we shared information on the state’s proposed changes to graduation requirements. The most recent ODE guidance stated that students may begin this work during the summer before their senior year. Given the terrible tornadoes and high winds last week, there are many areas that need additional volunteers. Your students could be serving your community AND working towards diploma requirements at the same time!
Operation Graduation Design Labs are for high school leadership teams (administrators and counselors) to design strategies to implement Ohioâ€™s modified graduation requirements for the Class of 2020. At each event, EnvisionEdPlus is partnering with school districts and ESCs implementing strategies that can be replicated and scaled to meet Ohioâ€™s Class of 2020 graduation options.

Consider the differences between engaging and supporting eight types of parents or family members you might encounter. Reflect on your past experiences with each of those types. Create and implement an action plan to improve your support for families who need it.
The content in this course is designed to begin your understanding of STEAM integration (design thinking) and apply this knowledge to your own classroom. You will have the opportunity to implement a mini lesson and receive feedback about your lesson. Two â€œoffice hoursâ€ will be available to chat with the instructor and others enrolled in this course.
The brain is constantly changing and molding in response to the environment. These changes impact student learning. This is especially true in terms of trauma. This training is designed to help participants learn what goes on in the brain and how they can set up a learning environment for each of the students in their class.
The content in this course is designed to begin your understanding of Problem Based Learning(PBL) and apply this knowledge to your own classroom. You will have the opportunity to implement a mini lesson and receive feedback about your lesson.
Core content includes an overview of Ohioâ€™s Plan to Raise Literacy Achievement, evidence-based literacy practices, and resources and tools for literacy instruction. Participants will create, implement and improve two classroom-based literacy strategies (in-person, blended or remote).
In Engaging Families Through Support - Level 1, you learned about eight types of parents/caregivers and reflected on your past experiences with each type, culminating in a plan to better engage specific types as partners in their children's education. During this 8-hour asynchronous course you will delve deeper in your understanding of the eight types of parents/caregivers by speaking with individual family members you work with, discovering what they need from you and your program, and implementing an action plan informed by the actual families you serve. Doing so will give you sustainable skills and strategies to build stronger family engagement year after year.
