If you feel overwhelmed by the thought of having to teach the more rigorous statistical topics of the CCLS, this is the workshop for you. We will work through the probability, statistics, inferences, and drawing of conclusions that you will need to be able to teach to your students. Probability and statistics begin in 6th grade, and continue through Pre-Calculus with a hiatus in Geometry. We will use the graphing calculator as an important tool. When you leave this workshop, you will feel confident in your ability to teach the standards to your students. This is a 2-part series. Ideally, participants will be able to attend both parts, but are not required to. **Please register separately for each session.** This second session will focus on using sample data to estimate a population characteristic, sampling variability in the sample proportion, margin of error when estimating a population proportion or a population mean, sampling variability in the sample proportion or the sample mean, evaluating reports based on data from a sample, experiments and the role of random assignment, differences due to random assignment, ruling out chance, drawing conclusions from data, and evaluating reports based on data from an experiment.

7. A Closer Look at the NYS Inquiries 11-12 presented by Jaime Pitschi

Program: Professional Development

Dates: 3/28/2017

Starting Soon
The approval of the New York State K-12 Social Studies Framework in April 2014 by the Board of Regents set in motion a series of efforts designed to define and support the best in social studies teaching and learning. The New York State K-12 Social Studies Toolkit, is an important step in building on the foundation of the framework. The Toolkit is designed to put instructional and curriculum design tools into the hands of teachers and leaders. The Toolkit resources focus on implementation of the Inquiry Arc, as presented in The College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards, including the four dimensions: (1) Developing questions and planning inquiries, (2) Applying disciplinary concepts and tools, (3) Evaluating sources and using evidence and (4) Communicating conclusions and taking informed action. Written by New York State teachers for New York State teachers, the centerpiece of the Toolkit are inquiries that are provided for all K-12 teachers. An inquiry is larger than a lesson plan but smaller than a unit; they are not scripts or modules for teachers to follow. Rather, these inquiries set a curricular and instructional course that teachers can consider in light of the NY Framework. In this way, teachers must bring their professional expertise and knowledge of successful instructional practice into the inquiry. This workshop is an opportunity to take a close look at the Inquiries and how to implement them in your classroom. We will examine the annotated inquiry provided in the Toolkit, looking at the essential pieces and adapting them to fit into your current curriculum. From there we will look at a teacher annotated inquiry and then you will have time to work collaboratively on annotating an inquiry. At the end of the day you will have three inquires ready to be used in your classroom. Flyer: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_5Dunwt_iLEdzEwV2w3MVB5UlU/view?usp=sharing

Course: CBSE 7678T: Educational Assessment of Young Children and Students with Special Needs. **DO NOT SEND ANY PAYMENTS UNTIL YOU RECEIVE EMAIL FROM SETC**
The new Global Regents Exam will be here June 2019. The time to adjust our curriculum is now, beginning with the middle school, to ensure our kids are ready for the new test. Analyzing primary and secondary sources along with comparing and connecting the documents will be essential to student success on the new exam. Multiple choice questions generated from a prompt are new ways of thinking for our students, so it is up to the teacher to expose students to this new way of questioning as early as we can. Connecting these documents to essential questions and supporting questions is necessary to understanding and analyzing documents and using them to inform your instruction. There are a tremendous number of resources out there for you to use, you don't need to reinvent the wheel to achieve student success. Together we will look at resources you can incorporate into your lessons to help you prepare students for the new challenges they will face. We will assess the usefulness of various sources and ways they can be used to enhance your lessons. You will be able to generate multiple choice questions based on a stimulus as well as short answer questions based on several prompts. Time will be given for you to develop strategies and lessons incorporating these sources in your instruction. Flyer: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_5Dunwt_iLEM1lkanpyUDRDRU0/view?usp=sharing
The Board of Regents approved The New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS) to be implemented in all schools beginning July 1, 2017. For those that attended prior workshops or have a basic familiarity with the new science standards, this full day workshop will take a deeper dive into addressing the fundamentals of the NYSSLS. Model activities and tasks will help participants continue to build an understanding of the foundational principles of three dimensional instruction and the pedagogy emerging in the new science standards. There will be opportunities to delve into lesson design and techniques to adapt what we currently teach to a NYSSLS approach. Participants will be teamed with grade level peers (K-2, 3-5, MS, HS) to collaborate on the three dimensional nature of the standards and the teaching approach to develop 21st century skills including creativity, critical thinking skills, communication, and collaboration. We will use the NYSSLS to begin 3D assessment design, look at curriculum design options and do a deeper look at the Standards by using the progressions in the NGSS appendices. Discussion will involve a brief review of the approved Statewide Strategic Plan for Science and the status of the implementation plans to support new P-12 science learning standards. B.Y.O.D.

In this climate of accountability, it's not surprising that teachers cast about for pencil and paper tasks and assessments that appear to serve up sound data about a student's reading performance. Yet, Hattie (2007) suggests that Feedback is one of the most powerful influences on learning and achievement. Therefore, it is time to reclaim what we know is a stronger measure of progress: ongoing, authentic, formative assessment. Readers and reading are too complex to be diagnosed in a single sitting, with a single task, or with a series of tasks - assessing a reader takes time. In order to move a reader forward, we must uncover how a reader holistically approaches reading and shift our mindsets to assessing the reader as opposed to reading tasks. This process includes looking at how the student initiates reading, how well the student reads, and how the student shares their reading with others. Therefore, we must assess a reader through multiple lenses. We must consider the student's attitude towards reading, his habits, book selections, reading identity, stamina for sustained independent reading, volume of reading in a single sitting, independent problem-solving skills, reading process, literal and inferential understanding, fluency, writing about reading in both short simple jottings and longer notebook entries, and book talk in partnership or club conversations. In this presentation, teachers will walk away with a deeper understanding that reading instruction must be authentic, holistic, and natural in its approach rather than restricted to skills taught in isolation and assessed by worksheets and tasks. Additionally, teachers will have a clear systematic approach to conferring with students using a step-by-step method and a clear definition of the variety of skills that can be assessed within each step of the process.

This workshop will provide a hands-on approach at looking at the new Learning Standards. The focus will concentrate on three major areas: 1)Emphasis on "non-traditional" problems, which foster the skill of "thinking outside the box", with particular concentration on the all-important mathematical aspect of PATTERNS, and the relationship of those patterns to ideas previously learned, as well as the ideas yet to come in future math courses. 2)Particular emphasis on tricks when finding factors, primes and prime factorizations, the Sieve of Eratosthenes, patterns with primes, Goldbach's Conjecture, the computational relationship between products, GCFs, and LCMs. 3)The utilization of the "bar model"/"tape diagram" technique to assist students in solving word problems; deemphasizing the standard and traditional mode of relying on "key words" in order for the student to determine the right operation to employ" i.e. Can this problem be solved without algebra? One third of a number has the same value as two fifths of another. Their sum is 88. Find the two numbers. The answer is YES!

The Common Core Standards for ELA require the use of more nonfiction text in the classroom. This shift requires students to engage in and analyze text to deepen their understanding of it. This is not so easy for the younger students, especially those that are reluctant readers. The read-aloud in the K-3 classroom is the perfect place for much of this connection with literature, both informational and literary, to take place. Teacher modeling provides the example needed to create active readers. In this workshop, participants will work together to choose appropriate texts for the K-3 classroom and evaluate them for their complexity and create effective text-dependent questions to stimulate discussion with students and to give them a better understanding of the story. Please bring 3- 4 books (picture books, short stories, news articles, etc.) appropriate for your classroom that you would like to use to create text dependent questions. You will leave this workshop feeling more confident implementing text dependent questions for students to create deeper meaning of any text.
