Family and culture play an intricate role not only in methods of communicating, but also in shaping the way we think and interact with others. Today, education goes far beyond focusing on literacy and mathematics. Educators that acknowledge, incorporate, and celebrate the whole child can provide access to a world many may view as impossible. As educators we must use and find the best practices for reaching all students and families to provide emotional and technical support, compassion, and encouragement as we partner in facilitating learning at both home and school. Using the Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education Framework, this workshop will tap into actionable steps educators can take to provide access for all students and their families.

Therefore, this hands-on workshop will examine instructional practices that promote cross-cultural understanding and critical discussions among students, while empowering them to take transformative civic action.

6 CTLE Credit Hours: Participants selecting this option will complete six (6) short activities from a menu of eight (8) options, including one initial and one concluding reflection.

Audience: Science teachers of English learners in grades 3-12; bi-lingual and co-teaching pairs

Dates: 5/12/2022 to 6/2/2022

Writing is Thinking (WIT) involves explicit instruction in expository writing skills to develop students' written and oral language, content knowledge and reading comprehension simultaneously. WIT is especially powerful for English learners because it also teaches how the English language works.

This is a hands-on experiential workshop. It is not intended to turn science teachers into writing teachers, but rather to develop science teachers' expertise using WIT to meet their content and assessment goals. This workshop is for science teachers of English learners in grades 3-12, including bi-lingual and co-teaching pairs. Participants are expected to attend all four sessions.

Participants MUST be enrolled by Tuesday, May 10, 2022.

Standards-based assessment & grading (SABG) is a growth-mindset approach to teaching and learning based on the expectation that everyone can learn when provided with the right conditions and support. It offers all students and teachers an alternative to the restrictions and limitations of traditional daily point-based grading. By refocusing grading and assessment on learning the targeted standards and implementing research-based systems honoring individual variation in learning styles, SABG allows more students to succeed academically and to take charge of their own learning. This workshop focuses on specific details about how to implement SABG in the gym, track, weight room, field and dance room; additionally it opens up some questions about traditional assessment and grading practices thus providing a shift in mindset and practice required to implement SABG effectively. The new NYS state PE standards will be the focus of the grading/assessment guidance. A general outcome of this workshop is designing assessment protocols that can be adopted across multiple assessments. Please bring currently used assessments.
