7. Middle School Science Standards Collaboration

Program: Support Services: General Professional Development

Dates: 1/31/2019 to 2/1/2019

According to the NYSP-12SLS Implementation Roadmap, districts should be in the “Transition and Implementation” phase of aligning curricula to new standards. Elementary programs are moving ahead with the assurance of delineated content Grades K-5. The NYSED is bringing New York State science stakeholders together to identify course maps for Living Environment, Chemistry, Physics and Earth Science at the High School level. Middle school – the bridge between the two has neither grade identified content, nor forthcoming course maps from NYSED. To further complicate the development of curricula; 50% of middle schools statewide have a content spiraled model, while the other 50% have content that is Earth Science, Life Science or Physics specific at a grade level. At grades 6-8 school districts have a new opportunity to review standards and articulate where to teach them, based on developmentally appropriate alignment and district needs.

The Capital Region BOCES proposes to bring together middle school science teachers who use a spiraled or stacked approach to their curriculum to work together to identify connections and develop a cohesive scope and sequence of the standards 6-8. The work will not only emphasize the content in the standards but will include the Science and Engineering practices and the Crosscutting Concepts which will fuel the instructional changes needed to fully support student learning. While the work will be focused on parsing out the spiraled approach – districts with delineated content will also benefit from the conversations.

Purpose in my Pocket is a monthly book club for special education teachers, service providers, and staff who work with individuals with differing needs. In this era of ever-changing expectation in education, it can be difficult to remember why you chose the profession you did, and also to make time for yourself. Through reading mass-market novels (memoirs, realistic fiction) from the perspective of those with special needs, and the people that assist in their care and education, Purpose in my Pocket seeks to help remind you of the passion that brought you into education, while encouraging you to take time to read, reflect, and expand your range of favorite "special needs based" literature!

Participants are asked to:

-attend the meetings they are interested in (some, or all, each meeting is independent of the others) and bring your copy of the book with you

-come to the meeting having read the book (you may attend if you have not finished it, however, we will be discussing the book in its entirety)

-be ready to answer the following 5 questions based on the text:

*Using the "thumbs scale" (thumbs up, thumb to the side, thumbs down), how would you rate this book overall?

*What feelings did this book evoke for you?

*What was your favorite quote/passage/chapter, and why?

*Did you find anything surprising, unsettling, shocking, or strange about this book, and what?

*What were your take-aways from the text/ how does this text influence your special education mindset?

Participants are also encouraged to bring journal articles, movie recommendations, and positive stories related to that month's book to share with the Club! We will also continually be collecting suggestions for titles for what we should read during the 2018-19 school year.

Meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of every month and attendees will receive 2.0 CTLE credits for each meeting they attend.

Program: School Support Services - Library Media Services

Audience: Special education teachers, service providers, and staff

Dates: 4/9/2019

April's book: Born on a Blue Day by Daniel Tammet

Purpose in my Pocket is a monthly book club for special education teachers, service providers, and staff who work with individuals with differing needs. In this era of ever-changing expectation in education, it can be difficult to remember why you chose the profession you did, and also to make time for yourself. Through reading mass-market novels (memoirs, realistic fiction) from the perspective of those with special needs, and the people that assist in their care and education, Purpose in my Pocket seeks to help remind you of the passion that brought you into education, while encouraging you to take time to read, reflect, and expand your range of favorite "special needs based" literature!

Participants are asked to:

-attend the meetings they are interested in (some, or all, each meeting is independent of the others) and bring your copy of the book with you

-come to the meeting having read the book (you may attend if you have not finished it, however, we will be discussing the book in its entirety)

-be ready to answer the following 5 questions based on the text:

*Using the "thumbs scale" (thumbs up, thumb to the side, thumbs down), how would you rate this book overall?

*What feelings did this book evoke for you?

*What was your favorite quote/passage/chapter, and why?

*Did you find anything surprising, unsettling, shocking, or strange about this book, and what?

*What were your take-aways from the text/ how does this text influence your special education mindset?

Participants are also encouraged to bring journal articles, movie recommendations, and positive stories related to that month's book to share with the Club! We will also continually be collecting suggestions for titles for what we should read during the 2018-19 school year.

Meetings are the 2nd Tuesday of every month and attendees will receive 2.0 CTLE credits for each meeting they attend.
