5. 2019 Greater Capital Region Project Based Learning Institute

Program: Project Based Learning

Audience: Teachers, Administrators and instructional support staff

Dates: 7/15/2019 to 7/19/2019

Project Based Learning (PBL) is a lot more than "doing projects." This five-day workshop will provide an opportunity to explore how projects can become the driving force behind the delivery of your entire curriculum instead of just an end of unit assessment. PBL can help make our classrooms more relevant and rigorous while teaching crucial skills like collaboration, critical thinking, and communication. Participants will have opportunities to experience part of a PBL unit, work to begin designing their own standards-aligned units, and explore how to use Google applications and other free software to manage the process. Teachers who are new to PBL will gain a strong enough foundation to begin integrating projects into their work this year, while experienced teachers will be able to explore new subtleties and take their work to the next level. Individuals may submit personal checks to HFM BOCES if district or BOCES is not paying. Otherwise, districts or Local BOCES will be billed by HFM BOCES.

8. Book Study: The Book Whisperer by Donalyn Miller

Program: School Library System/IRC

Audience: School Library Media Specialists, Teachers, Teacher Aides, School Administrators

Dates: 7/23/2019

Book Summary: Donalyn Miller says she has yet to meet a child she couldn't turn into a reader. No matter how far behind Miller's students might be when they reach her 6th-grade classroom, they end up reading an average of 40 to 50 books a year. Miller's unconventional approach dispenses with drills and worksheets that make reading a chore. Instead, she helps students navigate the world of literature and gives them time to read books they pick out themselves. Her love of books and teaching is both infectious and inspiring. The book includes a dynamite list of recommended "kid lit" that helps parents and teachers find the books that students really like to read. (Donalyn Miller) This book study will focus on the ideas discussed in Miller's book and look at ways to put those ideas into practice in our classrooms, schools and districts. A 7-week online discussion will end with a workshop and a 1-hour webinar with the author, Donalyn Miller. Participants are required to: Read one chapter per week Answer one discussion question per week Complete one short reflection per week Comment on one classmate's post per week Attend the workshop and webinar on July 23rd from 8:00am-12:00pm Begin Date: May 12, 2019 End Date: July 23, 2019 Participants must purchase their own copy of The Book Whisperer.

During this session, Michael Daly from SUNY OER Services will provide an overview of how HFM districts may utilize OER to improve teaching and learning and lessen the financial pressures for all.
