The forthcoming Next Generation Math standards (implementation begins for grades PreK-8th grade begins Fall 2021) requires teachers teach children math with conceptual understanding and NOT rely solely on a procedural algorithms (as did Common Core). This workshop will address ways elementary math is being is being taught and why it is important for students to learn this way. Nancy Lin will also briefly address the vertical progression of mathematics which makes proper foundational learning essential.

While the content of this workshop is primarily K-5, secondary math teachers who have taken this workshop have also found it incredibly eye-opening to learn about the new ways math is being taught in the younger grades.
Quotes from teachers who have taken this workshop in the past:

Great ways to help students become more proficient in math. Great alternatives to traditional algorithms and learning. I will institute much of it immediately and will use when introducing units next year.

I can see the foundation that my students are coming to me with. With knowledge of their background, I can build using similar models

Program: Curriculum & Instruction: Regional PD

Audience: all teachers and school administrators

Dates: 8/14/2020

Location: Online

Have teachers in your school been given the opportunity to have honest conversations about race, racism, implicit bias, white privilege, and schooling?

This is a pivotal time in history, one where all teachers and educational leaders have an imperative to address issues, like the incident with George Floyd, that have taken place and continue to take place today. We must first take the step to engage in uncomfortable conversations about racism amongst ourselves, so that we, in-turn, can consider how implicit bias may be affecting the manner in which we educate students. This session will provide a platform for educators & school leaders to engage in honest conversation about race, racism, implicit bias, white privilege, & schooling.

We will frame each discussion around provocative pieces of media - ex: we will read text & discuss, watch media clips & discuss.

The following pre-reading is required in advance of our Zoom session together:
Read Pedagogy of the Oppressed by Paulo Freire, Preface & Chapter 1.

Preface -

Program: Curriculum & Instruction: Regional PD

Dates: 10/1/2020 to 10/20/2020

Location: LL B

Over the last ten years, curriculum has been redefined to include standards-based units of study. During this three-day institute, ELA teachers will begin the process of writing a grade level standards-based curriculum. In the spirit of writing units with the end in mind (Understanding by Design).

*Day 1-teachers will write a standards-based assessment for a 2-4 week ELA literature based unit.

*Day 2-teachers will have developed lessons for that unit that include formative assessments to inform instruction.

*Day 3-teachers will have minimally an outline of a complete standards-based unit, and ideally a complete unit with a mid-unit assessment, formative assessments, protocols that promote collaboration and writing.

These three days will use the new Guide for Aligning Local Curricula to the Next Generation ELA Learning Standards recently published by the State. It is recommended that districts send a team or teams of grade level teachers who can collaborate on the unit that will become part of the grade level curriculum.

There will be an expectation, that on day 1, participants will bring a full-length text that they would like to include in the curriculum. The text should be challenging and have multiple interpretations. In addition, they will receive instruction prior to the first meeting on how to select a few possible short companion texts for the unit. This promises to be a fulfilling and exciting method for writing curriculum and for improving student engagement and learning during the school year.
