The American Language Program (ALP) Winter Conference is a professional development event for practicing language educators, researchers, and graduate and doctoral students aimed at enriching their pedagogical practice in teaching. Although primarily focused on English as a Second Language (ESL/TESOL/ELT) education in academic settings, educators teaching other languages or in other educational contexts may find the presentations relevant and applicable to their teaching. The title for the 2018 conference is Teaching Learners How to Learn; previous years’ conferences have focused on vocabulary (2018), pronunciation pedagogy (2017), critical thinking in language teaching and learning (2016), and writing (2015).

This training provides an overview of Special Education laws and the rights of parents. The training goes over the entire special education process from referral for special education services through the creation of an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Participants will learn how to read IEPs by reviewing sections of sample IEPs. Participants will strengthen their ability to advocate for parents and students when the parent disagrees with the student’s school on special education matters.
This workshop is intended for parents and professionals to give an understanding of how to report bullying, students’ rights, and school obligations. While this is not a Respect for All Liaison training, RFA Liaisons and other school-based professionals are welcome to attend.

A few leading questions to guide us:
How do schools promote the development of children’s voices in early childhood through Middle School and beyond?
What is the role of our schools and our classrooms in promoting this development?
What is the connection between identity and voice?
How do students become thoughtful about when and for what they should use their voices?
What role does listening play in developing one’s voice?
Join this conference of educators to discuss the power of the concept of Voice in our schools.
Akilah S. Richards, Antoine Fromental, Julia Putnam, and Emmanuel Davidenkoff will talk about education, school as an institution, and how alternative learning environments could produce better educated students, and subsequently, a healthier society. Moderated by Kenneth Danford.
This conference will examine the multifaceted effects of violence throughout the lifespan and present proactive measures to mitigate adverse outcomes, especially focusing on gun violence, school violence, and sexual and gender-based violence.
Did you know that NYC has one of the nation's most racially and economically segregated school systems in the US?
While Mayor de Blasio's plan to change admissions policies for the city's specialized high schools grabbed headlines over the summer, the reality is that school segregation goes far behind these eight elite high schools. School segregation exists at every level and in every corner of NYC's vast public school system.
