Common Core Learning Standards & Assessments - ELA

Scaffolding Common Core-Aligned Instruction Based on Students’ Needs Description: By the end of this one-day session, participants should be able to answer the following key questions: • How can we deliberately plan instruction to help all students make progress with the Common Core Learning Standards for English Language Arts (ELA)? • How might we differentiate instruction using scaffolding techniques to give all students access to the standards? Participants will delve into these key questions as they a) examine a process for using classwork as formative assessment to identify students’ learning needs, b) consider scaffolding techniques that support students’ needs, and c) apply a protocol for looking at student work as a tool for planning differentiated instruction. Teachers should leave the session with specific scaffolding techniques that they can apply in their classrooms to support reading and writing standards. Materials: Participants should bring their grade level Common Core Standards for ELA. Dates: Grades K-2: July 14, 2015 or Nov. 4, 2015 Grades 3-5: July 15, 2015 or Dec. 15, 2015 Grades 6-8: July 16, 2015 or Jan.13, 2016 Time: 8 am registration and coffee, 8:30 am-3 pm program, lunch on your own Audience: Classroom and ELA teachers Location: SWBOCES, 450 Mamaroneck Avenue, 3rd Floor, Harrison, NY 10528 Fee: $239 per participant for CoSer 555 members $287 per participant for CoSer 555 non-members Presenter: Denise Alterio Contact: Anna Marie Brancucci 914-345-8500, ext. 3125 abrancucci@swboces.org Implementing the New Social Studies Framework Description: This two-and-a-half day workshop is designed to prepare middle school social studies teachers and curriculum leaders to implement the new Social Studies Framework, approved by the Board of Regents in April 2014. Using their current courses of study as a starting point, participants will explore ways to change these to align with the Frameworks, paying special attention to the Social Studies Practices (Skills) as we discuss strategies to shift the focus of instruction. These changes interface with Common Core literacy work that middle schools have already undertaken. Participants will engage and reflect in an inquiry experience using the Stripling Inquiry Process and then explore the C3 Inquiry Model, developed in the Binghamton toolkit, and unpack the inquiry template and the annotated inquiries for grades 7 and 8. They will have the opportunity to work on their own inquiries for possible field-testing with their classes and share their inquiries (and possible field test results) and potential course restructuring ideas during the final half-day workshop. Materials: Participants should bring any books, materials or resources that will aid in the application of learning. Laptop, tablet, Chromebook optional. Dates: Choose one of the following cycles: Oct. 8, Oct. 9, and Oct. 28, 2015 (Oct. 28 12-3 pm) Jan. 19, Jan. 20, and Feb. 3, 2016 (Feb. 3, 2016 12-3 pm) Feb.11, Feb. 12, and March 7, 2016 (March 7, 2016 12 – 3 pm) Time: 8 am registration and coffee, 8:30 am-3 pm program, lunch on your own Audience: Social Studies Teachers and School Library Media Specialists Location: SWBOCES, 450 Mamaroneck Avenue, 3rd Floor, Harrison, NY 10528 Fee: $637 per participant for CoSer 555 members $765 per participant for CoSer 555 non-members Presenter: Steven Goldberg Contact: Anna Marie Brancucci 914-345-8500, ext. 3125 abrancucci@swboces.org 13
