FACE to FACE and ONLINE: Rhonda Bondie: NEW COURSE – Offering Help that Promotes Independence
15 CTLE hours and 1 in-service credit

There will be two face to face meetings on Feb 10 and March 3 (10 hours) and 5 hours online
Rhonda Bondie is a Special Education professor at Fordham University and faculty member of Harvard’s Project Zero.

Offering Help that Promotes Independence
There will be two face to face meetings (FIRST and LAST – 10 hours) and online (5 hours) in between.

We know that it is simply not effective, efficient, or sustainable to make easier and harder versions of assignments for students. Join us as we explore the different types of help, how to approach offering help that furthers student independence versus dependence, and how to use help to close gaps in learning. We will explain and understand when and how to make scaffolds, supports, and extensions to ensure learning fits student needs. Through this MLA, you will create and implement a scaffold, support, or extension and monitor the impact on student learning.

This workshop requires a <b>minimum</b> of 12 participants to run

LINC-Fundamentals of the NYS Science Learning Standards (NYS version of NGSS)
Program: Long Island Network of Teacher Centers

The Board of Regents approved The New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS) to be implemented in all schools beginning July 1, 2017. This full-day workshop will help participants become aware of the shifts in teaching and learning expected with the NYSSLS. Once fully implemented, this will be a paradigm shift to students constructing knowledge and doing science by pursuing engaging phenomena. Students must engage in the disciplinary content through using the science and engineering practices.

This is an introductory workshop that will include activities so participants can experience the pedagogical shift and will focus on an awareness of the Standard’s content, the three-dimensional nature, teaching approaches, as well as how to start preparing for their implementation.We will look to adapt what we currently do, to a NYSSLS approach, view examples of how three-dimensional learning can be assessed, and resources available. In addition, participants will gain the capacity to share their understanding of the NYSSLS with colleagues. Discussion will involve a brief review of the approved Statewide Strategic Plan for Science and the status of the implementation plan to support new P-12 science learning standards.

Presenter Glen Cochrane retired from Half Hollow Hills after 37 years where he taught all levels of high school science. He has served as an Educational Specialist for NYSED since 2004 participating in multiple phases of developing the Living Environment Regents. Recently, he was part of the team writing the life science section of the preliminary draft NYS Science Learning Standards at NYSED. He has conducted many workshops for teachers through WS and ES BOCES on strategies to teach the Living Environment and unpacking the new NYSSLS. Glen was President of Science Teachers Association of NYS (STANYS) 2016-17 and serves as the Chairperson of the Suffolk chapter.

LINC-New York State Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS) A Slightly Deeper Dive

Free Workshop

Schools in New York are in the early stages of implementing The New York State P-12 Science Learning Standards (NYSSLS). For those that attended prior workshops or have a basic familiarity with the new science standards, this full day workshop will take a deeper dive into how that implementation can be addressed.

Participants will continue to build an understanding of the three dimensions of Performance Expectations (Science and Engineering Practices, Disciplinary Core Ideas, and Crosscutting Concepts).

They will explore teaching and learning through anchoring phenomena with a focused exploration of how to use the practices so students construct understandings of the science content. Participants will be teamed with grade level or subject area peers to collaborate on how these standards differ in how and what science is currently taught.

A discussion will consider how this teaching approach to science can be inclusive of all students and encourage the development of 21st century skills including creativity, critical thinking skills, communication, and collaboration. We will review samples of 3D classroom assessments, discuss assessment design and lay the foundation to create tasks based on the Performance Expectations. Resources for curriculum development will be shared. The workshop will include an update of the implementation strategies outlined in the Statewide Strategic Plan for Science to support new P-12 science learning standards.
