The program will begin with aspects and responsibilities of the Athletic Director and will provide support and guidance on a wide variety of related topics, including, but not limited to, event management, student-athlete leadership, hiring and evaluating coaches and staff, facilities, health services, conduct and sportsmanship, and budget development and management.

Ideal candidates for this program include, but are not limited to, Athletic Directors with 1-5 years of experience, individuals who have relocated to a new school district, or those new to Section One Athletics (Lower Hudson Valley Region). Customized individual support will be informed by the specific strengths of the Athletic Director identified in the context of the district's Athletic Program.

- Consider the essential question: To what extent is my district/school/classroom an equitable one?
- Ground our work in NYSED's CRSE Framework and NYSED's DEI Policy
- Identify an area of focus and implement action steps to support your district's DEI efforts
- Contribute to Network resources and co-construct priorities

Network Members:
- While the DEI Leaders' Network is open to all engaged in DEI practice, we recommend joining with a colleague or school-wide or district-wide team.
- Members serve as "leaders” in the broadest definition of the term.
- Members are expected to bring ideas back to their districts, schools, and/or classrooms

26. Integrating PBL, STEAM, and SEL Into The Daily Curriculum

Program: LHRIC - Instructional Technology (Model Schools Courses)

Dates: 12/13/2022

Starting Soon
How do we integrate PBL, STEAM, and SEL into our curriculum to enhance teaching and learning? The driving force behind this pedagogy and educational approach is not in the design and it's not about which technology we use and it definitely is NOT about "One more thing”. The driving force for success is twofold: first, it is in the empathy or the relationship the students make with the curriculum idea and the real world connection. Second, it is in the collaboration on so many levels that make this integration work. It is a journey.

In this workshop, we will examine the journey from start to finish and create a PBL/STEAM/SEL unit that YOU can integrate into YOUR curriculum that will motivate ALL learners. The focus of this workshop will be on:
  • -Identifying learning standards in a curriculum area to begin this journey.
  • -Pinpointing goals for the unit.
  • -Awareness of the three P's and how to effectively use them during the process: PERSONALITY, PASSION and PERSEVERANCE.
  • -Designing a community of motivated learners.
  • -Acquiring the tools and resources needed for your project.
  • -Developing a "Setting Them Free" mindset and ways to use this mindset for optimum success.
  • -Understanding the flexibility in a fluid PBL unit and how to manage it.
  • -How to manage frustration at all levels while moving the project forward. -Learning that teachers and students do not need to be "On the same page.”

    This workshop is for K-12 teachers and administrators. During these workshops, the participants will learn how to design a PBL/STEAM/SEL unit addressing their curriculum and standards, so that they can use their design unit in their classroom. Participants will learn how to successfully navigate roadblocks while on this journey. Please bring a curriculum unit that you are or will be working on this year .
