    Dates: 2/26/2019

    New
    In this workshop, we take a deeper dive into Next Generation ELA Standards. Participants will investigate how the revised standards apply the "Simple View of Reading" in a progression for building both code-based and meaning-based reading skills. We will study writing, language, vocabulary, and speaking/listening from a perspective of building a foundation for advanced literacies for the 21st Century. As we do, we’ll answer these questions: -What goes into effective reading comprehension? -How do we set a foundation for engaged, collaborative environments? -What texts are appropriate for instruction? -What is contained in a unit of study that is engaging and builds knowledge? The answers to these questions will help us figure out what we’ll need to do to revise our existing curricula to be ready for full Next Generation ELA implementation in the fall of 2020.

    Civic Online Reasoning - Stanford History Education Group (SHEG) Information floods our phones, tablets, and laptops and young people, in particular, rely on this information to learn about the world. Yet evidence suggests that students struggle to evaluate digital content. Schools and teachers should help students learn effective evaluation strategies—but what should they teach? For the last several years, the Stanford History Education Group (SHEG) has developed assessments of online reasoning and analyzed thousands of student responses to better understand how students reason about online information. Additionally, they have researched how professional fact checkers evaluate digital content and developed new lessons for teaching online reasoning based on the strategies fact checkers used. In this workshop, participants will get an inside look at SHEG’s assessments and lessons as they learn about effective approaches to evaluating online information and strategies for supporting students to learn these approaches. As part of the workshop, participants will examine student responses to assessments of online reasoning, participate in model lessons that aim to teach online reasoning, and plan for how to incorporate these ideas and approaches into their own classes. This workshop is presented in collaboration with the BT, DCMO, and ONC BOCES School Library Systems.

    "To become readers, students must develop both the skills and knowledge to read the words...(code-based skills) and to understand complex texts (meaning-based skills) (Lessaux & Gallaway). This workshop focuses on the meaning-based skills instruction with authentic texts that are rich in concepts and vocabulary.

    First we'll review the components of reading comprehension and the Next Generation Standards associated with that learning. We will consider the text-types recommended in the Standards. Then Lorie will model a lesson which includes meaning-based skills instruction and text-dependent questioning. Participants will receive a lesson planning tool. Teachers will then explore other available lesson plans of their choice and/or begin creating a lesson of their own.

    Finally we'll consider how we might revise our existing curricula to be ready for full Next Generation ELA implementation in the fall of 2020.

    Please bring a topic idea from your curriculum and a short, engaging non-fiction text that supports that topic. Email Lorie if you have questions: ostrandl@dcmoboces.com

    47. Youth Mental Health First Aid (Certification Training)

    Program: Social & Emotional Learning

    Audience: All Staff

    Dates: 5/30/2019

    Youth Mental Health First Aid USA is a public education program which introduces participants to the unique risk factors and warning signs of mental health problems in adolescents, builds understanding of the importance of early intervention, and teaches individuals how to help an adolescent in crisis or experiencing a mental health challenge. Mental Health First Aid uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to assess a mental health crisis; select interventions and provide initial help; and connect young people to professional, peer, social, and self-help care.

    What will participants learn? The course teaches participants the risk factors and warning signs of a variety of mental health challenges common among adolescents, including anxiety, depression, psychosis, eating disorders, ADHD, disruptive behavior disorders, and substance use disorder. Participants do not learn to diagnose, nor how to provide any therapy or counseling 1/4 rather, participants learn to support a youth developing signs and symptoms of a mental illness or in an emotional crisis by applying a core five-step action plan: 1) assess for risk of suicide or harm; 2) listen non-judgmentally; 3) give reassurance and information; 4) encourage appropriate professional help; and 5) encourage self-help and other support strategies.

    Note: The Mental Health First Aid content is 8 hours. Please note that the start and end times for the day are different than typical BOCES workshops. There is a $20 charge for the book given in this workshop.

    48. Regional Collaborative Peer Group: Math Grades 3-5

    Program: Math

    Audience: Grades 3-5 Teachers of Math, AIS/RTI, and Special Education Teachers

    Dates: 5/31/2019

    Recognizing that many of the teachers in our region do not have a grade-level peer in their buildings, these sessions continue to bring the opportunity for area teachers to meet and work with others who teach the same content.

    While Nan Gizowski will share the most up-to-date information from math research, NYSED, and her statewide professional development, there is also plenty of open-discussion on the agenda for participants to bring in their own questions and ideas. Discussion that highlights instructional strategies, content and assessment ideas will be encouraged.

    Last year, this group focused learning on the Next Generation Math Standards and engaging instructional ideas from Desmos.com and The Classroom Chefs. It is the hope that these sessions will continue to establish collaborative relationships among the participants, and that they will attend subsequent discussion sessions that will be scheduled in the future.
