Audience: Grades 3-5 Teachers of Math, AIS/RTI, and Special Education Teachers

Dates: 10/18/2019

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 Gizowski 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. Last year, this group focused learning on the Next Generation Math Standards and engaging instructional ideas from Desmos.com and The Classroom Chefs. It is the hope that these sessions will continue to establish collaborative relationships among the participants, and that they will attend subsequent discussion sessions that will be scheduled in the future.

Program: English Language Arts

Audience: Grades 3-5 Teachers, Reading Teachers, Intervention and AIS Providers, Special Educators

Dates: 10/28/2019 to 10/29/2019

"To become readers, students must develop both the skills and knowledge to read the words...('code-based skills') and to understand complex texts ('meaning-based skills')." (Lessaux & Gallaway). This two-day workshop focuses on the meaning-based skills instruction with authentic texts that are rich in concepts and vocabulary. First we'll review the components of reading comprehension and the Next Generation Standards associated with that learning. We will consider the text-types recommended in the Standards. Then Lorie will model a lesson which includes meaning-based comprehension instruction including oral language comprehension through background knowledge, text and sentence structures, and academic language strategies. Participants will receive a lesson planning tool. Teachers will then explore other available lesson plans of their choice and/or begin creating a lesson of their own. Finally we'll consider how we might revise our existing curricula to be ready for full Next Generation ELA implementation in the fall of 2020. Please bring a topic idea from your curriculum and a short, engaging non-fiction text that supports that topic. Email Lorie if you have questions: ostrandl@dcmoboces.com

21. Grant Writing

Program: Other

Audience: All School Personnel

Dates: 10/29/2019

The traditional grant writing process has changed. The same technology that opens doors to faster research, quick access to documents and on-line application convenience, makes the grant application process crowded and competitive. Your grant application has to stand out and catch the benefactors and trustees attention with every statement. Come and learned from seasoned grant writers, ideas and best practices to connect your needs to funds. In this course, participants will learn how to identify their funding and create statements that support the grant search process. We will share step by step examples of how to combine grants, sponsorships, and corporate gifts to achieve success. A standard funding template will be used to organize ideas, outline the research needed, and generate statements that connect the need to available resources. Sites to research grant opportunities, free online courses, crowdfunding and social media fundraising strategies will also be discussed. The overall goal of this course is to help participants gain confidence with the grant research, planning and writing process with tools and information.
