The course will touch upon simple forms such as postcards and simple fold books and also move into accordion and simple bound books. In addition teachers will be shown how to use some other art materials that are classroom friendly. Teacher will have time to also create and make sample to bring back to the room with them.

Project Zero Teaching for Understanding

What is understanding and how does it develop? Are your students having trouble understanding a concept? Your colleague, Jen D’Agostino, will guide you through the Harvard protocols and thinking routines – an approach that requires students to think, analyze, problem solve, and make meaning of what they’ve learned. <em>Most</em> learning will be online and may have some additional optional face to face meetings. All teachers are encouraged to collaborate in improving student performance by creating activities that develop and demonstrate students’ understanding.

This is an online learning opportunity that begins Jan 6th and ends March 2nd. The class is 45 hours and will run for 7 weeks. This class needs 12 participants to run.

Rhonda Bondie 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 minimum of 12 participants to run

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

Audience: pre K-12 Educators
Dates: 12/10/2018

LINC Regional Training
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.

Discussion will consider how this teaching approach to science can be inclusive of all students and encourage 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. 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.

LINC-Let’s Get Real… Emergency Preparedness in Our Schools

Let’s Get Real . . Emergency Preparedness in Our Schools

Audience: pre K-12 Teachers, Administrators, School Related Professionals
Dates: 2/2/2019 – 3 CTLE hours

LINC Regional Training
Schools give children more than an academic education, providing consistent routine, social support, life skills, maybe even meals. Any disruption in those connections can be deeply distressing – for students and for you and your colleagues. This workshop will help you prepare for disasters and emergencies in order to minimize the risks to your school and community. Natural disasters and other emergencies can happen at any time, and when they happen at school, everyone should be prepared to handle them safely and effectively. Administrators, teachers, staff, parents and students can work together to promote and maintain school-wide safety and minimize the effects of emergencies and other dangerous situations. Throughout the presentation and discussion participants will develop different ways everyone in the school community can prepare for various natural disasters and other emergencies to stay safe. After this session participants will leave with an action plan they can implement to PREVENT, PREPARE, RESPOND AND RECOVER IN THE FACE OF EMERGENCIES AND DISASTERS.
