The iSOSY Consortium offers several tools for service providers from all backgrounds. Both those with many years of experience in education as well as those with little formal training will benefit from quality, easy-to-use presentations and tools designed to make reaching and teaching migratory students more accessible and more successful.
OSY Relationship Building Manual
This manual is designed for anyone working with OSY to reflect on their practice and how to improve working relationships with OSY and high school students in their migrant programs.
This presentation introduces Growth Mindset – the idea that abilities can be developed over time with dedication and hard work – and how it relates to the lives of OSY. Growth Mindset is the opposite of Fixed Mindset, which states that an individual is born with a fixed amount of talent and intelligence.
This resource focuses on building an action plan including the following steps: Create an Effective Learning Environment, Building Rapport, Transition to Instruction, and Young Adult Learning Strategies.
Identifying the Needs of OSY: Working With Language Learners
This presentation includes strategies to use with OSY with different levels of language ability, literacy levels, and general educational levels. The focus is on teaching students to improve in all four areas of language – listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
