4. STI - 5539 - Identity and Community

Program: Scarsdale Teachers Institute

Dates: 12/2/2020 to 1/20/2021

The current demands to transform, update, "decolonize," and reexamine the curriculum requires that we first gain a more complete understanding of the identities involved. This workshop explores concepts of identity related to race, class, and gender against the backdrop of the events of 2020. Participants will leave with a better understanding of who their students are and how their identities function to drive learning behaviors. In particular, participants will increase their awareness of identities, including their own, and think about how they are influenced by these identities in different contexts. The goal of the workshop is to encourage empathy and build community by increasing sensitivity to shared identities and the diversity of identities around us. The workshop builds on "Why Identity Matters" and is appropriate for both those who took that workshop and for newcomers.

10. STI 5521 - Elementary Science in a Hybrid Learning Environment

Program: Scarsdale Teachers Institute

Audience: K-5

Dates: 1/12/2021 to 3/30/2021

The hybrid model of instruction requires elementary teachers to consolidate and condense in-person, hands-on science instruction. To maintain the continuity of learning between weekly lessons, teachers will need to develop creative ways to engage students during independent, at-home work time. Because of the investigative nature of science, collaboration and time to shift the curriculum so it can be taught and learned in this environment. Hence, this course will provide teachers with the tools and resources needed to adapt both the learning experiences that take place in-person and during work time at home. This course will provide elementary teachers with the tools and resources for shifting the K-5 science curriculum so it can be effectively taught in the am/pm hybrid model of instruction. This course can be taken as a one, two, or three-credit course. For each credit, participants must attend six hours of whole group meetings plus complete six hours of small-group collaborative work.
