Discover the Benefits of Doodling! Have you taught it over and over and kids just aren't getting it? Or they remember it for the test and then, "Poof" its gone? We retain 10% of what we hear, 20% of what we read, and 80% of what we see, again, why wouldn't we use this? Sketchnoting is a must have strategy for every educator, every grade, every student. The science that supports using sketchnoting is overwhelmingly positive and will make you think, "Why wouldn't I use this with every student?" Educator and internationally known sketchnoter Sylvia Duckworth makes ideas memorable and shareable with her simple yet powerful drawings. In How to Sketchnote, she explains how you can use sketchnoting in the classroom and that you don't have to be an artist to discover the benefits of doodling! Sketchnoting (aka visual note-taking) allows students to see the bigger picture in the concepts they are studying, make connections in their learning, and display their learning process-and all of that leads to better retention. In this fun and inviting book, Sylvia equips you with the basic tools you and your students need to introduce doodling and sketchnoting in the classroom. With step-by-step sketchnote practice sessions and 180+ icons you can use or adapt to represent your ideas, How to Sketchnote will inspire you to embrace the doodler within-even if you think you can't draw.
This is an online book study that will embed practice sketching each day and some brief activities in the book. Participants will be required to practice sketching daily and embedding their work into the Schoology platform.

Program: School Improvement CTLE #755

Dates: 3/1/2020 to 4/9/2020

New
WHY SHOULD EDUCATORS READ WHITE FRAGILITY?
Living in rural NNY can be a challenging place to talk about race and racism in a meaningful ways that support healthy, functional change. Many educators are wondering what to do and how to do it, we hear conversations with slurs, we see and hear about hate based violence on the news and possibly even in our own communities. If you know the time is now and you are ready to embark on some challenging learning, and do what is right and just for all children, this book study is a great place to start.
In this "vital, necessary, and beautiful book" (Michael Eric Dyson), antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo deftly illuminates the phenomenon of white fragility and "allows us to understand racism as a practice not restricted to 'bad people' (Claudia Rankine). Referring to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and by behaviors including argumentation and silence. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium and prevent any meaningful cross-racial dialogue. In this in-depth exploration, DiAngelo examines how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.

This is an online book study, responses are due on Sunday evenings by 8pm and there will be a live Zoom meeting concluding the book on Thursday, April 9, 2020 from 3pm-4pm.

Middle Level Science includes: Life Science, Physical Sciences (chemistry and physics) and Earth/Space Science. Districts may assign each type of science to a grade level or they may choose to do an integrated approach.

This session will provide an opportunity for Middle Level teachers to come together to look at scope and sequence of Middle Level Science standards. Amanda Zullo, prior NYSED Science Associate, will work with teachers to start created a regional approach(es) to Middle Level Science and will help teachers consider the challenges and opportunities in how we order the topics.
