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.

    This forum will offer K-12 teachers and instructional coaches the platform for collaboration to address NYSED updates, curriculum, instruction and best practice for ELA. These sessions will provide participants the opportunity to work together to examine the Next Generation standards and determine how closely student writing tasks are aligned. The needs of the group will drive every agenda, and the participants will be encouraged to present their expertise to the group. Participants will be armed with updates and knowledge of current researched practices that will be shared back in the districts.

    Please bring a laptop, earbuds and an upcoming unit.

    3. How Do We Do It All?

    Audience: Teachers of grades K-12, Team Leaders, Department Chairs

    Dates: 2/10/2020 to 3/12/2020

    Social Emotional Learning. The Next Generation Standards for ELA and Math. Science and Social Studies. Personalized Learning. How can we be expected to do it all and to do it well? Join Betsy Serapilio-Frank for a 3 non-consecutive day workshop and learn how to:

    • Develop routines and procedures that create a safe and predictable space for learning and risk taking

    • Model thinking, listening and speaking behaviors that students can emulate

    • Create a practice of mindfulness and self-care for students and teachers

    • Integrate content in a way that meets the standards and is natural to student learning

    • Create learning opportunities through personalized Learning

    Between sessions, participants will apply the learning. When the group reconvenes, we will share our experiences and reflect upon the ways in which the learning was applied.

    Please bring a laptop, earbuds, a unit that you are currently teach, your expertise and an open mind.

    4. NYSSLS 101 Unpacking the Science Standards

    Program: Science

    Dates: 2/27/2020

    Starting Soon
    This one-day workshop is designed to help teachers of science gain a deeper understanding of the new K-12 Next Generation Science Standards. This is open to all teachers K-12 teaching science. Teachers will have the opportunity to: -Become familiar with the format of the standards. -Understand the instructional implications of the three dimensions within the standards. -Examine in-depth the content and expectations of student outcomes. -Learn where the engineering principles and Cross Cutting Concepts fit within the disciplines. Overall this will help prepare teachers for the new standards allowing them time and coaching to establish units of study and activities within these units.

    5. 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.

    7. Great Instruction + Excellent Assessment - Lame Tests = Student Success!

    Program: Professional Development

    Audience: Teachers (All Grades And Content), Instructional Coaches, Building and District Leaders PK-12

    Dates: 5/13/2020

    "Everyone deserves a balanced and healthy diet." ~Tier 1 Instruction and Assessment for All

    Frequent testing does not improve student learning outcomes any more than frequent weigh-ins improve health. When districts, schools, and teachers develop a healthy instruction and assessment system, everyone benefits! Administrators and mental health professionals have fewer fires to put out, teachers have a strong sense of how to help their students learn, and students have a clear picture of their strengths and a pathway for improving their performance.

    "Looks like you have a second degree burn. Let's get this covered up so you don't get an infection." ~Tier 2 Instructional Intervention and Assessment

    When students are struggling, what instructional and assessment steps can you take to turbocharge a student's learning so they can catch up to their peers? We can borrow from first responder protocols and apply these lessons to our instruction and assessment. In particular, we will learn about how to use state test question stems to build supportive classroom formative assessments in ELA and math that are aligned to the Next Generation Learning Standards.

    "Annie, Annie, are you OK? Call 9-1-1!"~Tier 3 Instructional Intervention and Assessment

    When students are in crisis, it is important to provide immediate and critical learning and social-emotional supports. Discover how lessons from the ER apply to students who need intensive services.

    Please join us for a day jam-packed with actionable steps to improve your instruction and assessment.

    8. The Time Is Now: Final Preparation For The Next Generation Mathematics Learning Standards (PK, K, 1st-8th Grade)

    Program: Professional Development

    Audience: PK, K and 1st-8th Grade Math Teachers (Vertical Teams), plus Instructional Coaches, Building and District Leaders PK-12

    Dates: 5/21/2020

    Next year, students in grades 3-8 will be assessed on the updated mathematics learning standards. Are your school and district ready?

    Send a vertical team of teachers, one person per grade level, to review your curriculum and assessments, discuss changes to the math standards, and develop a plan to meet all student math learning needs in grades PK, K and 1st-8th grade.

    During this learning experience, you and your team will:

    • Participate in a protocol called Ins-And-Outs to identify key learning outcomes which are vertically aligned. Find out what your peers identify as the most important math skills and concepts their students learn at each grade level

    • Engage in math learning experiences which emphasize the Standards for Mathematical Practice

    • Explore Dr. Jo Boaler's youcubed.org resources and several different banks of 3 Act Math tasks appropriate for learners of all ages

    • Use the Enhanced Mathematics Standards document from Broome-Tioga BOCES to support intervention and enrichment / acceleration initiatives

    • Discuss the key differences between lower-quality and higher-quality math assessments at all grade levels PK-8

    There will be time for you to have strategic conversations about your curriculum and discuss who teaches which topics. This conversation is especially important at the middle school level, so be sure to include both elementary and middle level colleagues in this session.
