Research shows that the students of Board-certified teachers learn more than students in other classrooms, which is why many states and districts offer incentives for teachers to pursue Board certification.

This workshop will introduce you to the process of National Board, and encourage you to explore its many possibilities and benefits!! As a National Board Certified Teacher, you will join the ranks of the nation's most accomplished teachers who help students develop the necessary skills to thrive in school, in the workplace and in the 21st century global economy!

You will get an overview of the National Board Certification (NBC) process for teachers, union leaders or administrators. You will know the requirements, timelines, fees, and options so that you are prepared to dive in...or encourage others to. It will also provide information about the professional, financial and technical supports available to candidates. This is professional development that is completely aligned with the New York State Teaching Standards and APPR.

What is a demonstration classroom?

A demonstration classroom is a professional learning lab for educators. The demonstration classroom serves as a job-embedded professional learning model that takes place during the normal school day, allowing visiting teachers to observe promising practices as they unfold in a live teaching environment with students engaged in learning.

Each visit to a demonstration classroom includes a pre-observation meeting followed by a non-evaluative collegial discussion with the demonstration classroom teacher and a TST BOCES instructional coach.

Why regional demonstration classrooms?

-To visit colleagues' classrooms to share ideas and increase our collective understanding of how to create the best possible learning environment for all students
-To participate in non-evaluative collegial discussions that enhance our content knowledge and pedagogical practice
-To network educators throughout the TST BOCES region

Additional information and application are available by clicking HERE . The statement of support from your building principal should be an attachment that is submitted via email to Beth Dryer, Regional Coordinator of Curriculum and Professional Development (bdryer@tstboces.org). Upon receipt of your application materials, you will be contacted to schedule a brief classroom visit. New application deadline is OCTOBER 3, 2017.

14. K-8 Math Teachers Network [Session 1 of 4]

Program: School Improvement Services (COSER 505)

Audience: K-8 teachers

Dates: 10/5/2017

Meeting Times: October 5th, 8:30 am - 3:00 pm [1 hr. lunch on your own]

Location: A-14

John Hattie (2012) suggests that many students need different teaching strategies from those that they have been getting. We know that learner's readiness, abilities, and needs can be 'all over the map'. As teachers, we need to be able to identify and address each learner's individual needs, as well as have students take ownership of their own learning.

Visible Learning for Mathematics (Hattie, Fisher, & Frey, 2012) will deepen our understanding around how to use the right approach at the right time, in order to help more intentionally design classroom experiences that hit the surface, deep, and transfer phases of learning.
Additionally, Jo Boaler's Mathematical Mindsets (2016) will provide information, techniques, and tasks that aim to help all children believe in their mathematics potential.

Learning outcomes include:
+ Discover how to build successful relationships with students, critical to long-term student gains;
+ Understand learning intentions and success criteria and why they are critical to student growth;
+ Explore the three phases of learning -- surface, deep, and transfer;
+ Examine key approaches that work best at each phase of learning and apply these to lesson planning;
+ Implement strategies that support the development of a growth mindset.

*Ongoing, classroom embedded support and feedback will be provided*

During this workshop, we will: create a mosaic made from rePURPOSEd violent video games and other e-waste while we discuss topics including youth development and gaming. This is a conversation more than a presentation. I will share the Game Changer Movement journey with you, and I hope to learn from you about what it is like to teach digital natives. We will explore ways to partner with students so they can feel as significant as they feel when they game....while in the classroom. I will introduce some new technological concepts that I have been researching, and we can discuss their relevance in the classroom. We will explore options to engage with students at their level without creating adversarial relationships. All the while, we will create a mosaic together that will become part of the Game Changer Movement evolution. The creation process itself brings with it mindfulness and catharsis all at once. We have an amazing opportunity WITH the next generation, as our students are also our best teachers.

My hope is that you will leave this experience with a powerful vision to partner with your students in new and innovative ways, that will create empathy and engagement for years to come.

John Hattie (2012) suggests that many students need different teaching strategies from those that they have been getting. We know that learner's readiness, abilities, and needs can be 'all over the map'.

Visible Learning for Mathematics (Hattie, Fisher, & Frey, 2012) will deepen our understanding around how to use the right approach at the right time, in order to help more intentionally design classroom experiences that hit the surface, deep, and transfer phases of learning.
Additionally, Jo Boaler's Mathematical Mindsets (2016) will provide information, techniques, and tasks that aim to help all children believe in their mathematics potential.

Learning outcomes include:
+ Discover how to build successful relationships with students, critical to long-term student gains;
+ Understand learning intentions and success criteria and why they are critical to student growth;
+ Explore the three phases of learning -- surface, deep, and transfer;
+ Examine key approaches that work best at each phase of learning and apply these to lesson planning;
+ Implement strategies that support the development of a growth mindset.

John Hattie (2012) suggests that many students need different teaching strategies from those that they have been getting. We know that learner's readiness, abilities, and needs can be 'all over the map'. As teachers, we need to be able to identify and address each learner's individual needs, as well as have students take ownership of their own learning.

Visible Learning for Mathematics (Hattie, Fisher, & Frey, 2012) will deepen our understanding around how to use the right approach at the right time, in order to help more intentionally design classroom experiences that hit the surface, deep, and transfer phases of learning.
Additionally, Jo Boaler's Mathematical Mindsets (2016) will provide information, techniques, and tasks that aim to help all children believe in their mathematics potential.

Learning outcomes include:
+ Discover how to build successful relationships with students, critical to long-term student gains;
+ Understand learning intentions and success criteria and why they are critical to student growth;
+ Explore the three phases of learning -- surface, deep, and transfer;
+ Examine key approaches that work best at each phase of learning and apply these to lesson planning;
+ Implement strategies that support the development of a growth mindset.

*Ongoing, classroom embedded support and feedback will be provided*
