To reduce the uneasiness brought on by a lack of understanding and to educate those in any way connected to the schedule, Dr. Kussin has reduced the entire master schedule building process to a "generic” 12-month 10-step model that works for schools of all sizes. He has written a text, How to Build the Master Schedule in Ten Easy Steps, following this approach.

  • Session 1 will be devoted to the ten steps.
  • Session 2 will allow participants to apply what they learned by building a master schedule from start to finish for a 360-student school, using mock data.

    Location: CR 1-2

    The research is in, improving reading improves writing, and improving writing improves reading. Based on the work of Dr. Nonie K. Lesaux's Literacy Briefs, Tim Shanahan's research, and Steve Graham's and Michael Hebert' Report from the Carnegie Foundation, this workshop will emphasize the connections between reading and writing in both English and content area classrooms.

    As we have been working diligently to improve both abilities in our classrooms, we have learned the importance of connecting the two consistently and in a variety of ways to improve both. In this interactive workshop, teachers will explore some of the research and practical and efficient ways of applying what they learn to their classrooms. Even though we understand better that reading and writing are reciprocal processes that help students learn, teachers find it challenging to help students use the skills in one to improve skills in the other.

    By exploring some of the research as well as the thoughts of experts in literacy, we can develop lessons and units that combine reading and writing to improve both skills across the disciplines. In this interactive workshop, participants will review research regarding the Reading/Writing Connection, discuss these connections, and walk away with skills and ideas that will help their students improve writing skills as well as reading skills.

    Please note: Cancellation policy: If a participant has registered for, but is unable to attend, a Nassau BOCES workshop, they are required to drop their workshop registration on Frontline/MLP at least 7 days prior to the start date of the workshop.
