The purpose of this webinar is to provide math educators with ways to structure online math lessons using NYS Assessment questions so students develop students' strong habits of mind, such as perseverance and deeper conceptual thinking, instead of simply seeking the correct solution. Teaching NYS Math Assessment questions online involves developing lesson plans and online communities that lead to true understanding, attainable content, proficiency, and mastery. By offering this webinar, I hope to provide strategies that make educators more aware of the potential traps that capture unintended outcomes and provide educators with interventions that need to be put in place to avoid academic pitfalls. After this webinar, teachers will know how to seamlessly implement NYS Assessment questions into online lessons using the practices of productive struggle.

This training is designed to prepare teachers who are interested in participating in Day-Use programs at the Western Suffolk BOCES Outdoor Learning Labs. Day-Use programs are meant to be an extension of the classroom where teachers have the opportunity to co-plan and conduct their classes in an environment that lends itself to authentic student centered inquiry based science education. All Day-Use classes have access to an outdoor educator to support them in planning activities, throughout a Day-Use class, and as the classes explore the outdoors. The Outdoor Environmental Education Program has three learning labs each located in Caleb Smith State Park, Connetquot River State Park, and Sunken Meadow State Park. Due to the environmental differences of each of the learning labs, we are able to offer a wide variety of programs that include, but are not limited to: animal adaptations, elementary chemistry, human impacts on the environment, makerspace challenges, planetarium programs, simple machines, topography, water testing, weathering and erosion, and much more! Dress for the outdoors! Sturdy shoes, comfortable clothing, etc. Only for teachers who are participating in Western Suffolk BOCES Day-Use programs during the 2020-2021 school year!
