26. SLS Council Meeting

Program: School Library Systems

Audience: School librarians

Dates: 4/21/2020

SLS Council Meeting
This workshop draws on the work of John Hattie, Doug Fisher, Nancy Frey, and John Almarode, with a focus on the concepts of Surface, Deep, and Transfer learning. These different aspects to learning are all needed and valuable, but what are the differences, and why is each important? Participants will learn about and experience examples of each of these types of learning, and will have time to explore and discuss possible adaptations to their own content. Many examples will come from the Literacy, Math, and Science volumes of the Visible Learning book series, but the concepts are transferable to all content, and other resources will be shared.
Recognizing that many of the teachers in our region do not have a grade-level peer in their buildings, these sessions continue to bring the opportunity for area teachers to meet and work with others who teach the same content. While Nan will share the most up-to-date information from math research, NYSED, and her statewide professional development, there is also plenty of open-discussion on the agenda for participants to bring in their own questions and ideas. Discussion that highlights instructional strategies, content and assessment ideas will be encouraged.
