Next Generation Science Unit Development with Jean Ward

posted Mar 10, 2015, 11:23 AM by Jacquelyne Wilson

Title:              Next Generation Science Unit Development

Credits:          2 Graduate credits from Castleton State College

Cost:               For credit option is $730, not for credit option is $500

Dates/Time:   8/10/15 – 8/13/15 (8:00-4:00)

Location:        Manchester Elementary Middle School


Course Description The Next Generation Science Standards have the potential to offer our students the science skills and concepts to prepare them for 21st century citizenship. Participants in the Next Generation Science Unit Development course will develop a thorough understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) while developing a science unit of study that embodies the content and intentions of these new standards.  The unit development will be a complex process focused on Science and Engineering Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Disciplinary Core Ideas. Participants will use a unit template to integrate these three dimensions with Common Core math and ELA, use of science notebooks, and formative assessment.

 

Participants will be given tools and resources needed to serve as the foundation for their work and are encouraged to work singly or in pairs on unit development. Participants will need laptop computers and access to Google docs.


This course is hosted by the BRSU.  For registration materials see below.

This 3 credit graduate course will focus on building teacher pedagogical knowledge about effective instructional practices.  Teachers will focus on the guided math workshop  model as an effective practice for differentiating and enhancing mathematics instruction to meet the needs of all students.  Teachers will examine current mathematics programs and materials for embedded effective instructional practices.  Teachers will review best practices for instruction.  Recommended for PreK-6 as well as Special Education.  The course dates are:  June 25, 26, 29, and August 10 (8:00 - 4:00), and Sept. 21, Oct. 12 (3:35 - 7:00).  The course will be held at the Mettawee Community School and the cost is $975.  To register on-line go to http://goo.gl/forms/e2jCj3NOge or use the paper registration below.  A more detailed course description is also attached below.

OGAP Proportional Reasoning with Lynne Kelly: August 3 - 6, 2015

posted Mar 9, 2015, 6:41 AM by Jacquelyne Wilson

Participants will learn how to use the Ongoing Assessment Project (OGAP) in the area of  proportional reasoning. The Ongoing Assessment Project (OGAP) is a systematic and intentional formative assessment system in mathematics based on mathematics education research on  how students learn specific concepts, common errors students make, and preconceptions or misconceptions that may interfere with learning new concepts of solving related problems.  This is a four day training and a 2 credit option from Castleton State College is available.  The cost without credit is $450.  The cost with the two graduate credits is $680.  The offering is sponsored by the Bennington Rutland Supervisory Union, and will be hosted at Manchester Elementary Middle School A more detailed description and registration information is attached.
