1. 6-8 Math Collaborative

Program: Innovative Teaching and Learning

Audience: 6-8 Teachers of Mathematics

Dates: 9/25/2018

Starting Today
Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All in Grades 6-8 (NCTM, 2014) provides guidance on what it will take to make ambitious teaching and rigorous content standards a reality in classrooms, schools, and districts in order to support mathematical success for each and every student. In the 6-8 Math Collaborative participants will be provided books from NCTM’s Taking Action: Implementing Effective Mathematics Teaching Practices (NCTM, 2017) series. The eight effective teaching practices for mathematics include:



• Establish mathematics goals to focus learning.



• Implement tasks that promote reasoning and problem solving.



• Use and connect mathematical representations.



• Facilitate meaningful mathematical discourse.



• Pose purposeful questions.



• Build procedural fluency from conceptual understanding.



• Support productive struggle in learning mathematics.



• Elicit and use evidence of student thinking. The book will be divided into approximate thirds. At each meeting we will discuss one-third of the book and develop ambitious mathematics activities that exemplify the practices outlined in the reading. Additionally, at each meeting participants will use take a deep dive into a selection of the NYS Next Generation Mathematics Learning Standards to explore the changes and identify questions and/or tasks that align with the effective teaching practices.

The expectation is that you will attend all three collaboratives (9/25/18, 2/6/19, and 5/15/2019) in order to maximize the experience for all.

Program: Innovative Teaching and Learning

Join us for the NYSed Arts Standards training to prepare you for the implementation of the new NYS Arts Standards for the 18/19 School Year. This will be the full 6 hour course to familiarize educators with the new standards and how they are coded and broken down. The 2017 New York State P-12 Learning Standards for the Arts are designed to develop artistically literate citizens. An artistically literate citizen has the knowledge, skills, and understanding to actively engage in the arts throughout their lives. The intrinsic nature of the arts leads to and promotes a civilized, sustainable society. Artistically literate graduates are career and college ready, capable of understanding and addressing the needs of society, and participating in a global economy. Through creating, performing, responding, and connecting in the arts, students generate experiences, construct knowledge, and build a more integrated understanding of self and community. They explore and express ideas, feelings, and beliefs about the past and present; discover new ideas; and begin to envision possible futures. Through careful study of their own and others’ art, students explore and make sense of the broad human condition across time and cultures. Arts literacy also fosters connections between the arts, and between the arts and other disciplines, thereby providing opportunities to access, develop, express, and integrate meaning across a variety of content areas. Indeed, an arts-literate individual recognizes the value of the arts as a place of free expression; and the importance of observing and participating in the social, political, spiritual, financial, and aesthetic aspects of their communities (both local and global, in person and virtually); and works to introduce the arts into those settings
