How Kids Are Performing Report Presentation: This report explores key questions, including: How has the pandemic truly impacted students' reading and math performance at each grade level?; Is the impact reflected in growth outcomes?; Does the impact vary by student subgroup? Have existing achievement gaps widened?; Can we interpret the pandemic's impact in instructional terms?; Focus Skills provide a roadmap for closing learning gaps as teachers move every student toward greater mastery. Focus Skills are available for every teacher in NY State - please download the workbooks for Math and Literacy so you can visualize how to use with your teachers and students during our session. Product Updates and Trivia-Recent updates to Renaissance Star products including SGP for Spanish Star.
This database is best for students in grades 7-12. We will cover how to navigate the database to show students how to find real answers to real life problems.

98. LTG Participants ONLY: Inquiry Based Approaches

Program: Model Schools

Dates: 4/8/2021

A great deal of student success depends on engagement. How relevant is the information being taught and how can teachers present material in a way that will foster engagement? Inquiry-based learning is an approach that emphasizes direct student involvement. It encourages students to be part of the learning process by giving them the opportunity to focus on topics that interest them. When students are able to engage with materials in their own way, the take-away is a deeper more meaningful experience that spills over into other facets of their life. This workshop is designed to introduce you to various technology tools that encourage student exploration while remaining within the scope of educational directives. Some technology tools include: Google Arts and Culture, Wonderopolis, PHET, and BioInteractive.

This workshop is open to educators from the ESB Consortium: Little Flower, Patchogue-Medford, Riverhead, Sachem, South Country, Victory Christian Academy, and Peconic Community School for the Learning Technology Grant 2020-2021. Attendance will be taken during each session.

101. 'Live' Online - What's Different About Teaching Reading to Students Learning English - Presented by Dr. Kate Moran and Annie Duguay, Center for Applied Linguistics (CAL)

Program: Eastern Suffolk BOCES Professional Development Program

Audience: Grades K-12 Educators

Dates: 4/12/2021 to 4/26/2021

This research-based curriculum incorporates key findings from the National Literacy Panel (2006) on teaching reading comprehension, vocabulary, fluency, phonemic awareness and phonics to English learners. Connections will be made to college and career readiness standards (such as CCSS) including reading and writing in the content areas. The program provides educators with research-based practical strategies for teaching literacy to English learners within reading, ESL, or grade-level content instruction. Effective second language acquisition strategies serve as the foundation for the literacy practices communicated in the What's Different training, and the materials rely on seven research-based principles of effective instruction for English learners. A theme of the What's Different PD is that English learners are not a homogeneous group of students and, as a result, teaching methods will vary based on the characteristics of the students, such as those who are long term English learners, overage and under-credited. A further consideration for differentiation, particularly for older students who are new to English, is the degree of literacy in the first language and amount of formal schooling. Throughout the sessions, activities that teachers can implement in the classroom with modifications for their students will be modeled. Participants will be able to:
• Differentiate how learning to read and write in English is the same and different for English proficient students and English learners
• Analyze how the components identified by the National Literacy Panel apply to the teaching and learning of reading for English learners
• Create lesson plans using reading and writing strategies that are useful for teaching English learners at a variety of proficiency levels, reading levels, first language literacy levels, ages, and language and cultural backgrounds.
