Program: Curriculum & Instruction: Regional PD

Audience: PE teachers, school nurses, health teachers, athletic directors

Dates: 5/25/2021

Location: Online

New
Many schools districts utilize the return to play protocol for returning to physical education. Unfortunately, this means RTPE won't start until the student is symptom free. This could mean a student might not be involved in their PE class for weeks. This can result in a student having anxiety over missing out on being with their friends in PE as well as worrying about the impact on their PE grade. Also, Research shows that Subsymptom threshold aerobic exercise is associated with a quicker recovery for people who have suffered a concussion. The Concussion Initiative of the Brain Injury Association of New York State created a committee made up of people involved in physical education to study the problem and design a protocol that schools can use.

In the first 50-55 minutes of the presentation attendees will learn about the stages of return to physical education. The remaining time would involve an open dialogue about the practical implications of instituting the protocol in your physical education class.

PLEASE NOTE- Log on information for the ZOOM virtual session will be emailed to everyone who has registered on MyLearningPlan on the morning of the scheduled session.

Program: Curriculum & Instruction: Regional PD

Audience: grades 3-12 teachers and supervisors

Dates: 6/22/2021

Location: Online

The shifts in the Next Generation Math and ELA standards and the NYSSLS science standards all focus on getting students to generate good questions. Students need practice with HOW to generate good questions in all subject areas. A neutral way to begin developing this practice in students of all ages is using quotes. Quotes are great for this purpose because they are short, provocative, and capture our attention in a way that touches hearts and minds. Quotes are similar to starting an ELA or SS lesson with a hook or starting a science lesson with natural phenomena, or starting a math lesson with a 3-act task. Used with the right teaching strategy, quotes can be great question-generators and conversation starters. This workshop will teach educators two main teaching strategies for getting students to generate good questions: 1) Question Formulation Technique (QFT) and 2) Teach Different 3-Step Conversation Method.
