1. Building a Mathematics Coaching Cadre to Foster Teacher Leadership

Program: Professional Development

Audience: District teams of K-12 teachers, teacher leaders, math coaches, and administrators.

Dates: 10/3/2019 to 1/29/2020

in conjunction with the Center for Professional Development and Education Reform
Additional Opportunity for Coaches
Please join us for three engaging days with a focus on fostering teacher leadership through mathematics coaching.

During our time together, we will provide targeted support to coaches, math specialists, instructional leaders and coaching program leaders on how to use coaching as a strategy to improve student learning. We will bring together new and experienced mathematics coaches from across schools, districts, and grade levels to work on refining their coaching practices and programs. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in powerful learning experiences to develop the art of coaching through robust discussions, practical experiences and the examination of case studies and current research. All participants will be encouraged to apply the content of these professional learning experiences to their own coaching practice. During our time together, we will build a community that can share resources and materials and openly discuss current successes and challenges in our coaching roles.

How do we use research to inform decisions in math education? What implications does research have on mathematics learning, instructional practices, and district initiatives?

The Center for Professional Development and Education Reform, in partnership with Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES, is once again offering an opportunity for teachers, teacher leaders, math coaches, and administrators to come together to learn, share resources and ideas, and provide support to each other as we work to successfully implement high quality mathematics instruction for K-12 students. To embrace the shifts, challenges, and progress in mathematics education today, it is crucial that we, as a region, work in collaboration to best serve our school communities while staying at the forefront of the latest research. This year's Cadre will continue our commitment to bring research to practice to inform the decisions we make. Additionally, Cadre will continue to be a vehicle for new and returning members to:

  • come to a deeper understanding of the mathematics within the Common Core Learning Standards and prepare for the Next Generation Learning Standards as we explore the implications on teaching, learning and assessment;
  • collaborate with each other by sharing strategies and materials to support the implementation of high quality mathematics;
  • explore important topics in mathematics education such as mathematical modeling, equity and discourse;
  • participate in experiences as learners in mathematics to develop new images of mathematics teaching and learning.

    4. The Next Generation Math Learning Standards: From Raising Awareness to Building Capacity (Algebra II)

    Program: Professional Development

    Audience: Algebra II Teachers

    Dates: 3/17/2020

    NEXT GEN
    As New York State moves from Raising Awareness to Building Capacity for the Next Generation Learning Standards, this workshop will allow teachers to build their own capacity for understanding the revisions from the Common Core to the Next Generation Math Learning Standards. Participants will experience a process of unpacking standards to gain a deeper understanding of what students are expected to know and be able to do. Time will also be given to work in grade level teams to develop a plan to ensure that students do not experience any gaps in instruction during this transition to revised standards.
