37. TIF Program Teaching the Novel: An Updated Look*

Program: Teacher Immersion Fellows Program

Dates: 4/5/2021 to 4/19/2021

TIFP
With the release of the Common Core Learning Standards followed by the revised NYS Next Generation ELA Standards, there was an initial feeling that literature had a lesser place in middle school and high school English Language Arts (ELA) classrooms. This was a misunderstanding of the chart provided in the standards calling for an increase in informational text and argument writing. However, these changes were meant to occur across the school day, not just in ELA.

So, how do we address the standards while teaching novels? How has the discussion around the novel changed?

During this course, we will explore various expert opinions, examine sample curriculum unit plans centering on novels, and discuss ideas moving forward. The text, A Novel Approach: Whole-Class Novels, Student-Centered Teaching and Choice by Kate Roberts will be touched upon throughout. Feel free to purchase, but it is not required.

Program: Monroe Accountability, Assessment & Reporting Services

Dates: 4/6/2021 to 4/27/2021

You are in the midst of what is likely the most difficult year of your professional life. All of us have had to change the way we teach and deliver content this schoolyear. The instruction that has worked for you in years past had to be retooled to reach students online. With so much focus on learning both synchronous and asynchronous instructional strategies and new technological tools and platforms, it is likely that you haven't yet had a chance to think about how you could potentially modify the way in which you assess your students' understanding. More students are struggling than ever before, and trying something new with our assessments could go a long way in helping all students succeed. This course is designed for the teacher who wants to build assessments that are hybrid/remote friendly and truly want to assess what students know, understand and can do. We know you don't want to spend the limited in-person time you have with students on paper & pen tests. We have compiled several strategies to help you modify your already-made assessment into something that can accurately reflect your students' learning even if taken remotely. And because we are in such a time where many of our beliefs and practices are being challenged, perhaps we may begin to challenge our thinking on the whole assessment process by looking at several different research theories surrounding the topic. This course consists of two live Zoom meetings with independent work time to implement the strategies shared in-between. There will be opportunities for sharing ideas with others, feedback, self-reflection and planning next steps. We hope this helps to build a community of educators across the region that can provide continued support to its members after the course has ended.

The achievement gap remains a stubborn problem for educators of culturally and linguistically diverse students. With the introduction of the rigorous Common Core State Standards, diverse classrooms need a proven framework for optimizing student engagement and facilitating deeper learning. Culturally responsive pedagogy has shown great promise in meeting this need, but many educators still struggle with its implementation. Culturally Responsive Teaching and The Brain: Promoting Authentic Engagement and Rigor Among Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students is a bold, brain-based teaching approach to culturally responsive instruction. In this book, Zaretta Hammond draws on cutting-edge neuroscience research to offer an innovative approach for designing and implementing brain-compatible culturally responsive instruction. This 20-hour course will take place online using Schoology from Feb. 28-May 1, with two ZOOM meetings on April 6 & 27 from 4:30-5:30pm. Participants must supply their own book.
