7. Arts Leadership

Program: Innovative Teaching and Learning

Audience: District, building and teacher leaders in Arts

Dates: 12/9/2021

This group is for people who have been designated by their district to take a leadership role in Arts. It is recommended that districts send a team to the Arts Leadership meetings that include teacher leaders (elementary, middle and high school teachers) as well as building and district leaders. This group serves to support the development of district and regional capacity related to the transition to the NYS Arts Standards. This includes sharing and discussing up-to-date information related to the standards implementation from the State Education Department. Additionally, the goal of this group is to develop collaboration between districts in the region to support high-quality K-12 Arts education and position the region to successfully implement the new Arts standards.

The expectation for participating in this group is:

1. Attending all Arts Leadership meetings during the year. We will have a focus of study for the year that will build on our previous work.

2. Being prepared for the meeting by completing any personal learning required by the facilitator of this group.

3. Being responsible for working with your team to bring the learning from the meeting back to your district.

4. Being designated or gaining approval by your district to participate in this group.

The formal meeting will occur in the morning. However, your district may ask your team to use the afternoon to develop a plan for implementing the learning from the meeting in your district. If your district asks this of you the meeting space will be available in the afternoon for use by those who wish to stay and work.

In a world of division, McGhee gives a possible solution to bring the world together using the Solidarity Dividend. Learn from each other and discuss this New York Times bestseller and longlisted book for the National Book Award and Andrew Carnegie Medal. Heather McGhee's specialty is the American economy-and the mystery of why it so often fails the American public. From the financial crisis of 2008 to rising student debt to collapsing public infrastructure, she found a root problem: racism in our politics and policymaking. But how did this happen? And is there a way out? McGhee finds proof of what she calls the Solidarity Dividend: the benefits we gain when people come together across race to accomplish what we simply can't do on our own. The book leaves us with a new vision for a future in which we finally realize that life can be more than a zero-sum game. Please note: This course is completely asynchronous with weekly assignments due. Frontline requires times.

76. 📚 Asynchronous: Book Study: Cultivating Genius by Gholdy Muhammad 📚

Program: School Library System

Dates: 10/25/2022 to 12/27/2022

In Cultivating Genius, Dr. Gholdy E. Muhammad presents a four-layered equity framework-one that is grounded in history and restores excellence in literacy education. This framework, which she names, Historically Responsive Literacy, was derived from the study of literacy development within 19th-century Black literacy societies. The framework is essential and universal for all students, especially youth of color, who traditionally have been marginalized in learning standards, school policies, and classroom practices. The equity framework will help educators teach and lead toward the following learning goals or pursuits:

  • Identity Development-Helping youth to make sense of themselves and others
  • Skill Development- Developing proficiencies across the academic disciplines
  • Intellectual Development-Gaining knowledge and becoming smarter
  • Criticality-Learning and developing the ability to read texts (including print and social contexts) to understand power, equity, and anti-oppression


When these four learning pursuits are taught together-through the Historically Responsive Literacy Framework, all students receive profound opportunities for personal, intellectual, and academic success. Muhammad provides probing, self-reflective questions for teachers, leaders, and teacher educators as well as sample culturally and historically responsive sample plans and text sets across grades and content areas. In this book, Muhammad presents practical approaches to cultivate the genius in students and within teachers.

77. 🎲Game On: Roll the Dice with Board Games🎲

Program: School Library System

Audience: K-12

Dates: 10/25/2022

The use of board games in education is under-utilized. As we come out of this pandemic, and adjust to new directions, education can reinvent itself, and create better learning environments. Gamification is a popular teaching buzz word that suggests educators take an element of play and retrofit it to achieve a classroom learning objective. Games can engage students with different learning styles and inspire individual creativity. Board games represent the missing tool in our toolboxes, and they can replace the traditional lectures with a method that reaches all students. This interactive professional development is for educators who want to use board games as teaching tools.
  • Board games can be used in all content areas and teach a variety of skills including:
  • Social, Emotional, Learning concepts
  • Problem solving
  • Trial & Error - Failure as a way of learning
  • Collaboration & Teamwork
  • Creativity & Problem Solving

  • During this professional development educators will experience board games, be provided with sample lesson plans and include time to actually play games.
