1. How Do We Do It All?

Program: Professional Development

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.

2. 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.
This is the last year for our current ELS assessment. During this workshop participants will review the past written tests, take the manipulative test and score student examples from each station. Participants will be instructed on the set up of the stations, materials needed, and will practice setting up each station for testing use. There will be parallel activities to help review for the test.
There are 2 more years left of the current grade 8 assessment. During this workshop participants will review the past written tests, take the manipulative test and score student examples from each station. Participants will be instructed on the set up of the stations, materials needed, and will practice setting up each station for testing use. There will be parallel activities to help review for the test.

5. NYSSLS 102: Phenomena and Story Lines

Program: Science

Audience: teachers

Dates: 5/12/2020

The power of using story lines and phenomena to start a science unit helps capture the interest of the students and allows an intriguing entry point to the unit of study. Teachers will work through: *story lines and how they help drive the unit. *developing anchoring phenomena, investigational phenomena, and everyday or lesson phenomena *effective modeling rather than art and craft projects Participants will have time to work with their current curriculum and develop story lines, phenomena, and where effective modeling may fit in. Additionally, teachers will evaluate the current models and labs they use and work through changing them to work in a more 3-dimensional style that reflects the flavor of the NYSSLS.

6. LETRS 3rd Edition, Volume 1 - Register by May 25

Program: Professional Development

Audience: Elementary Teachers of Reading

Dates: 6/29/2020 to 8/27/2020

LETRS (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling)

LETRS comprehensive professional development empowers teachers to understand the science behind how students learn to read and why some students struggle. LETRS participants will deepen their knowledge of the what, why and how of scientifically based reading instruction - while sharpening their ability to diagnose why students are struggling and how to provide proven interventions.

LETRS 3rd Edition professional development is delivered in a series of units that address each essential component of reading instruction and the foundational concepts that that link each component. The full LETRS course is two volumes.

This six day series will address Volume 1.

7. NYSSLS 103 Assessments in Science

Program: Science

Dates: 6/29/2020 to 6/30/2020

This workshop will introduce the NYS Science Education Consortium framework around assessing the new science standards. Participants will choose a performance expectation, develop a phenomena or problem through the use of a real world scenario, design a stimulus which often is a set of relevant data, and then develop prompts of one or more questions to elicit the targeted knowledge and skills from that performance expectation. At each step of the process, participants will have peer review. It will start with their phenomena to make sure they are intriguing and adequately rich to drive the task. That their data is relevant and enough to give students evidence to answer the questions. Finally, peers will evaluate whether the questions require students to use at least two of the dimensions to use reasoning to figure out or make sense of the phenomena and questions.
