Tralee Education Centre: SENCO Workshop

‘Support for All, Some, and Few: Provision Mapping as a Strategic Whole School Response to Inclusive and Special Education in Mainstream Schools’.

This presentation and workshop will explore the SENCO role in post-primary schools in Ireland and draw on research findings from a doctoral thesis examining the role. The presentation is aimed at SENCOs in post-primary schools, and members of senior leadership teams, including principals and deputy principals and will demonstrate how the School Self-Evaluation Guidelines, and the Looking At Our Schools Framework (DES Inspectorate 2016) can be used to capture inclusive and special education provision across the continuum of need (NEPS 2010). Provision mapping as a process and as a tool to support the strategic whole school development of inclusive and special education will be presented. Rather than seeing the development of SEN policy and practice as occurring along a parallel track to whole school approaches to learning and teaching, and leadership and management of learning and teaching, this presentation aims to situate responses to inclusive and special education firmly within whole school processes of planning, implementation and review.

What is Y-PATH PE 4 ME?
Y-PATH (Youth Physical Activity Towards Health) PE 4 ME is a junior cycle post-primary programme which aims to improve physical activity among children and young people through the physical education (PE) module in the school curriculum. The programme is bought to you as a result of a collaboration between the Irish Heart Foundation and Dublin City University.
What is involved in the programme?
The programme is available only to PE teachers. There are two parts to the Y-PATH PE 4 ME programme:
• A 1-hour online course on the Irish Heart Foundation website www.irishheart.ie which must be completed by teacher before attending the workshop
• 3-hour face to face evening workshop held in Education Centres nationally
Teachers will then have the ability to implement the Y-PATH PE 4 ME programme into their PE classes. Teachers will be given a Y-PATH resource pack with lesson plans, posters, student journals, as well as access to an online teacher’s portal containing digital resources to assist with lessons.

The Resourceful Chemistry Teacher
 
This is the International Year of the Periodic Table of Elements, the fundamental resource
for teaching chemistry. This workshop will introduce some novel resources and
methodologies including gamification e.g. PTE Bingo & The Periodic Table Gazette, with
the aim of increasing student curiousity and motivation. Calculations including those
based on First Principles will be explored and a planning database technological resource
will be disseminated. This tool shared in the Autumn workshops will enable teachers to
facilitate teaching, learning and assessment in Senior Cycle Chemistry. It will enhance the
role of the teacher individually and collectively as a Laboratory Technician, Safety Auditor,
Action Researcher (using Reflective Practice).
In order to maximise benefit from the digital tool, teachers should personalise it by
adding their own resources to it. Please bring a new blank 16 Gb USB key to the meeting
(this will avoid viruses) and we will exchange it for one with the database preloaded

Problems in Familiar and Unfamiliar Contexts 1.
(for Junior Cycle Mathematics Teachers.)
A one day course aimed at Junior Certificate Mathematics Teachers who wish to engage with the solving of problems in familiar and unfamiliar contexts.
 
While this course is primarily directed at Junior Cycle Mathematics Teachers it would be of interest and benefit to Mathematics teachers at all levels.
Section 4 of “Specification for Junior Cycle Mathematics” makes reference to the fact the Mathematics Specification builds on students’ prior learning and focuses on developing increasingly sophisticated and refined mathematical understanding, fluency, reasoning, computational thinking and problem solving.
The document goes on to state in Section 10 that “Students should be able to engage in tasks in which the solution is not immediately obvious, in familiar and unfamiliar contexts.
This one day course aims at providing teachers of Junior Cycle Mathematics with a bank of questions which will aid them in achieving this goal.
The questions provided:
- Range across the four strands of the Junior Cycle Specification.
- Range across the three years of the Junior Cycle.
- Allow students engage in tasks for which the solutions are not immediately obvious.
- Are suitable for a wide range of abilities.
-  Can be scaffolded to cater for differentiated learning.
-  Can be solved by a variety of approaches and methods.
-  Link material from a number of strands.
-  Can be used to introduce and develop other concepts.
There will be ample opportunity for participants to engage with the material by working through examples and discussing the solutions and there will be full worked solutions to many of the examples.
A PDF version of the presentation will be made available to all participants via email on completion of the course.
