Recognizing and Reporting Child Abuse

Only a small percentage of students actively disclose abuse. The goal of this course is to combat that by fostering an understanding of the process for disclosure and the ways in which a child might disclose abuse. Janice McCutcheon-Beaver, Director of the Cooper-Anthony Mercy Child Advocacy Center, and Kathy Helpenstill, Forensic Interviewer at the White County Children's Safety Center, co-present detailed information on the stages of disclosure, considerations for talking to a child, and the many ways in which a reporter can maintain open and honest communication during disclosure.

This course was taped on March 20, 2015 at the AETN studios in Conway, Arkansas.

Professional Licensure Standards Board (PLSB) - The Code of Ethics Training Video (2017)

Please Note: Due to changes in the Code of Ethics, this course has been temporarily archived while a new video is being produced. We expect to be able to resume this course offering in February of 2019.

The Code of Ethics for Arkansas Educators defines the minimum standards of ethical conduct for all educators. The State Board of Education approved the standards on September 1, 2008. Arkansas law mandates that everyone with a valid Arkansas teaching license and all educators teaching under an Act 1240 waiver are required to abide by the Code of Ethics for Arkansas Educators. Educational leaders from across the state join Eric R. James from the Professional Licensure Standards Board (PLSB) to explain what it means to be an ethical educator and abide by the Code of Ethics for Arkansas Educators. Assisting Eric James in providing clarification for each standard are Dr. Givan, Henderson State University; Dr. Martin, Greenland School District; and Marcus Haddock, McGehee High School.

The Challenges of Learning English as a Second Language

With the increasing number of English language learners (ELLs) in K-12 schools, today's teachers have a new responsibility - serving as models of English for ELLs. Most teachers, however, are unfamiliar with aspects of English that are most challenging to ELLs. In this course, Dr. Keith Folse, Associate Professor of Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) at the University of Central Florida, identifies these challenges using examples of common questions and mistakes made by ELLs. He provides explanations and effective options for answering difficult questions.

This presentation was recorded during the SETESOL conference in Rogers, Arkansas on October 8-11, 2014.

Close Reading of Complex Texts

The Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts requires students "to read increasingly complex texts with growing independence." When teachers understand what makes a text complex, they can better support their students in reading them. In this course, Dr. Doug Fisher examines the quantitative and qualitative factors of text complexity, as well as the ways in which readers can be matched with texts and tasks. He also examines how close reading of complex texts scaffolds students' understanding.
