36. Digital STEM Classroom: Helping Students Analyze Data Online

Program: Educational Resources

Audience: K-12 Educators

Dates: 11/12/2020

The ability to examine, analyze and interpret crucial trends in data sets is one of the core tenants of science literacy. It can also be one of the most difficult skills to instruct. With an increased shift to virtual and blended instruction, this becomes even more difficult. Fortunately, through purposeful planning, the proper implementation of digital resources and your student's own innate creativity, data analysis at home can be authentic, scaffolded and made available to all learners.

In this session, we'll examine how G-Suite, Desmos and other online tools can help you re-inject opportunities for students to get experience analyzing trends and drawing claims from scientific data. We'll discuss how to scaffold this work for learners who struggle in the digital realm and how to capitalize on in-classroom time within the blended learning environment.

These eight facilitated meetings will provide that forum for sharing challenges, successes, solutions, and best practices and provide opportunities to collaborate with colleagues to enhance professional growth and networking. Topics for learning and discussion may include: equity, distance learning, trauma-informed practices, matters of curriculum and instruction, and specific topics of interest generated by the group.

Sign up on MLP for each meeting individually. All meetings are from 8:30 to 9:30 on the 2nd Friday of each month on the Zoom platform (link will be shared prior to the first meeting with registered participants).

Dates: 11/17/2020 to 11/24/2020

Meeting Times: Starting 11/17/2020 with multiple dates and times through 11/24/2020

For more than a century, education providers throughout the United States have strived and struggled to meet the diverse needs of American children and families. A complex system of biases and structural inequities is at play, deeply rooted in our country's history, culture, and institutions. This system of inequity - which routinely confers advantage and disadvantage based on linguistic background, gender, skin color, and other characteristics - must be clearly understood, directly challenged, and fundamentally transformed. The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has come to understand that the results we seek for all our children can never be fully achieved without incorporating an equity and inclusion lens in every facet of our work (see also NYS-ESSA Plan). Culturally responsive-sustaining (CR-S) education is a view of learning and human growth that values differences in culture and identity (e.g., race, social class, gender, language, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, ability) as strengths that should be included in teaching and learning. If you are looking for support on how to begin this work or have questions regarding the systems and practices that are already in place at your school, classroom, or district please join this one hour forum where you can bring your questions and or concerns about Equity and Culturally Responsive teaching practices and receive feedback from the RPC's Culturally Responsive Educator Specialist. Participants will receive one hour CTLE credit for attending. *Copy and paste the following link to complete a form letting me know the best possible time to hold the forum and to advise me of your specific needs/wants prior to attending. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScbFbtCjfcVfMi5zot3pIWDGjreUX8aEY1sGUqqSEhUT7J4LA/viewform?usp=sf_link Thank you for your interest in Equity and Culturally Responsive teaching.

76. Culturally Responsive Education Forum - December dates

Program: Regional Partnership Center

Dates: 12/15/2020 to 12/22/2020

Meeting Times: Starting 12/15/2020 with multiple dates and times through 12/22/2020

For more than a century, education providers throughout the United States have strived and struggled to meet the diverse needs of American children and families. A complex system of biases and structural inequities is at play, deeply rooted in our country's history, culture, and institutions. This system of inequity - which routinely confers advantage and disadvantage based on linguistic background, gender, skin color, and other characteristics - must be clearly understood, directly challenged, and fundamentally transformed. The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has come to understand that the results we seek for all our children can never be fully achieved without incorporating an equity and inclusion lens in every facet of our work (see also NYS-ESSA Plan). Culturally responsive-sustaining (CR-S) education is a view of learning and human growth that values differences in culture and identity (e.g., race, social class, gender, language, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, ability) as strengths that should be included in teaching and learning. If you are looking for support on how to begin this work or have questions regarding the systems and practices that are already in place at your school, classroom, or district please join this one hour forum where you can bring your questions and or concerns about Equity and Culturally Responsive teaching practices and receive feedback from the RPC's Culturally Responsive Educator Specialist. Participants will receive one hour CTLE credit for attending. *Copy and paste the following link to complete a form letting me know the best possible time to hold the forum and to advise me of your specific needs/wants prior to attending. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScbFbtCjfcVfMi5zot3pIWDGjreUX8aEY1sGUqqSEhUT7J4LA/viewform?usp=sf_link Thank you for your interest in Equity and Culturally Responsive teaching.

97. HSPN: High School Principals' Network - Meeting 4 of 8

Program: Educational Resources

Audience: High School Principals

Dates: 1/8/2021

Being a high school principal can be an isolating position. Even though other capable administrators, teachers, and staff are part of the team, the sole authority is on you to lead your building. Connecting with other principals who have similar experiences offers an opportunity to harness the collective intelligence, defining and sharing strengths to address the challenges and opportunities we face.

These eight facilitated meetings will provide that forum for sharing challenges, successes, solutions, and best practices and provide opportunities to collaborate with colleagues to enhance professional growth and networking. Topics for learning and discussion may include: equity, distance learning, trauma-informed practices, matters of curriculum and instruction, and specific topics of interest generated by the group.

Sign up on MLP for each meeting individually. All meetings are from 8:30 to 9:30 on the 2nd Friday of each month on the Zoom platform (link will be shared prior to the first meeting with registered participants).

As per this year's survey, there will be four meetings throughout the 2020-2021 school year addressing topics including but not limited to: distance learning, equity, trauma-informed practices, and assessment and the use of data. Currently, all four meetings are scheduled to be virtual, although in-person meetings and/or site visits will be considered depending on conditions and group interest.

All meetings are scheduled from 8:30 - 9:30AM on October 5 and the 2nd Monday of January, March, and May. Sign up for each meeting individually:
