Common Core Learning Standards & Assessments - ELA

How to Really Improve Reading Achievement: A Conference with Timothy Shanahan, Ph.D. Description: This conference will explore the variables that educators can use to improve reading achievement. It will consider the roles played by amount of instruction, curriculum coverage, and quality of instruction and what teachers and principals can do to maximize the power of these tools. Given the important role that curriculum has to play in reading improvement, the New York educational standards will be considered in terms of what they require and what it will take to accomplish them (particularly in areas like writing about reading, close reading and teaching effectively with complex text). The information shared will be based on the presenter's latest research, including the major research reviews conducted for the U.S. Government, and on the presenter's own experiences in raising school achievement successfully in the Chicago Public Schools. Date: Nov. 17, 2015 Time: 8 am registration and coffee, 8:30 am-3 pm program, lunch on your own Audience: PreK-12 teachers and administrators Location: SWBOCES, 450 Mamaroneck Avenue, 3rd Floor, Harrison, NY 10528 Fee: $200 per participant for CoSer 555 members $240 per participant for CoSer 555 non-members Presenter: Timothy Shanahan, Ph.D. Contact: Anna Marie Brancucci 914-345-8500, ext. 3125 abrancucci@swboces.org Comprehension, Differentiation and Interventions in the Primary Grades PreK-2 Description: Today the saying “a stitch in time saves nine” is more suited to reading comprehension than needlework. The foundations of reading comprehension begin well before children can read independently. The Common Core’s focus on high level comprehension has made student differences in the ability to comprehend visible earlier than ever before. This workshop provides solutions to support young children who have difficulty understanding texts being read aloud to them or easy texts they are reading independently. Practical suggestions for small group instruction in the classroom and a range of intervention settings will be provided to support your students’ ability to identify themes, identify key ideas, generate inferences, and create an awareness of the effective utilization of basic text structures. Date: Nov. 19, 2015 Time: 8 am registration and coffee, 8:30 am – 3 pm program, lunch on your own Audience: PreK-Grade 2 classroom teachers, literacy coaches, speech and language therapists, ESL teachers, reading interventionists and administrators 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: Kay Stahl, Ed.D.
