Dear Colleagues in the Elementary School Community, Welcome to Professional Development Opportunities for Elementary School Administrators and Teachers. We have assembled in this volume a schedule of professional development programs, offered by the various offices of the Division of Teaching and Learning, as well as other offices within the Department of Education, attuned to the particular needs of the elementary school community. Courses included in this catalog focus primarily on the period from Election Day through the end of January, but additional courses may be provided as well. You will also be able to find this catalog online at http://schools.nyc.gov/teachlearn. We want to be your partner in providing our elementary school students with the high quality education that they deserve. So, please let us know what professional opportunities would be of most use to you, and in what format, and we will try to accommodate your requests as we continue to develop our offerings for the year. You can send all of your suggestions and requests to Tom Huser, our Director of Strategic Communications, by email at [email protected] The Division of Teaching and Learning is also delighted to announce that there are opportunities for customized professional development and consultation services for your school or network; please contact the office(s) you are interested in working with directly (see Contact Information) or Melissa Hamann, by email at [email protected] We look forward to working closely with you to make all of the New York City schools the stars that we all know they should and can be.

Math Intervention: Foundation-Building and Strategies for Students with Math Difficulties (Target Audience: Teachers, Coaches, and Administrators, Grades K-8) Students with math learning difficulties need to build mental representations and catch onto the "system." When teachers truly understand these needs, they are able to focus instruction in powerful ways that are crucial not only for the student facing math learning dilemmas, but also for those with serious math disabilities, and even for "typical" math learners who need a bit more. This all-day workshop will provide depth of understanding, many examples, case studies, and hands-on practice in preparation for teachers' providing powerful math intervention in the elementary and middle grades. Areas to be covered include: grounding in things ­ building mental representations; arrays at a glance; critical lessons in counting; mental representations ­ color, stability, verbal tags; basic arithmetic facts and computational procedures; the language of math; and problem-solving.

Wed, 1/16 9:00 AM ­ 3:00 PM Hunter College 68th Street and Lexington Avenue, East Building on SE corner Room 1203E Manhattan

Case Studies in Motion (Target Audience: Teachers, Coaches, AIS and Inquiry Team Members, and Administrators, Grades 4-6) This workshop, which will focus on students struggling with literacy issues, will provide an overview of the diagnostic prescriptive model, review assessment tools and intervention treatment toolkits, and explore progress monitoring strategies for determining response to intervention. Two sample cases will be presented to the group and participants will then have an opportunity to apply this information to a case study of their own. Participants will be asked to bring data relevant to one challenging case from their own school.

PROGRAM / COURSE DESCRIPTION Using Self-Questioning Strategies to Boost Comprehension (Target Audience: Teachers, Coaches and Administrators, Grades 3-8) Research strongly supports the use of self-questioning strategies to boost interaction with text and increase comprehension. This presentation will demonstrate a variety of engaging strategies useful in doing so, including ReQuest, QAR, KWL, and others. Due to sell-out crowds in the fall, this workshop is being repeated to accommodate additional registrants in the elementary and middle schools.

Fitness and Health Education

New Teacher Physical Best Workshop (Target Audience: Physical Education Teachers, Grades K-5) In this highly-interactive, full-day session, participants will learn basic components of health-related fitness and strategies for instruction and assessment leading to specialist certification in Physical Best, the K-12 core curriculum for fitness and physical education for the New York City public schools, and NYC FITNESSGRAM, the citywide health-related fitness assessment system. This course is designed to be an introduction to health-related fitness curriculum and assessment for new physical education teachers. Physical Best differs from what is commonly referred to as "traditional" physical education, where students are taught what to do, but not why. Instead, the curriculum emphasizes the use of authentic physical activity that students enjoy, and promotes individual choices wherever possible, encouraging greater transfer to real-life settings. Physical Best enables students to learn why activity is important and how it benefits them today and for a lifetime, while NYC FITNESSGRAM is a criterion-referenced assessment tool that supports personal evaluation, planning, and goal-setting, rather than comparison to a peer sample. Select from one of the following sessions: Sat, 11/17 Sat, 1/5 All sessions are 8:00 AM ­ 3:00 PM Genovese Center at St. Francis College 180 Remsen Street Brooklyn Heights Presenter: Office of Fitness and Health Education, NYCDOE Cost: Free Max.

No Gym, No Problem! (Target Audience: Physical Education Teachers and Administrators, Grades K-5) As all schools ­ and, in particular, small learning communities ­ struggle with the demands of limited space, oftentimes there is no gymnasium for conducting physical education instruction. Fortunately, new approaches to physical education (in particular, a focus on health-related fitness) do not necessarily require a gymnasium for the implementation of high-quality, effective, physical education instruction. In this session, participants will learn about and/or review the fundamentals of effective physical education instruction, and will learn a wide variety of specific, creative strategies for conducting physical education instruction and health-related fitness assessment, regardless of available space. By the end of this session, participants will understand the importance and benefits of physical activity and physical education, regardless of available space, and be able to develop a plan for providing high-quality, effective, physical education instruction with a focus on healthrelated fitness, regardless of available space.

Science Journals (Target Audience: Science Cluster Teachers, Science Teachers and Classroom Teachers, Grades K-8) Nature journals can be used in both formal and informal education settings to record observations of the natural world and create opportunities to learn art, science, mathematics, and language arts. Journals used in this way are practically unmatched for enhancing observational and thinking skills; at the same time, they enhance knowledge and appreciation for local nature. This one-day workshop will get teachers started on keeping nature journals with their students and guide the use of nature journals as tools for teaching and learning. In this workshop, participants will consider the importance of journal keeping in the context of scientific inquiry: exploration, data collection, and meaning-making. Participants will engage in a project based in the process of inquiry. Breakfast will be included.

DIVISION OF HUMAN RESOURCES Office of New Teacher Induction

Introduction to the Professional Teaching Standards for Principals & Assistant Principals Part I: A Lens for Improving Classroom Instructional Practice (Target Audience: Principals and Assistant Principals) The Professional Teaching Standards (PTS) and the Continuum of Teacher Growth and Development offer Principals and Assistant Principals a developmental research-based framework for supporting teachers' classroom practice. The six PTS are written using specific teacher behaviors that guide best classroom practice. Combined with the Continuum, teachers and supervisors have a framework for deciding where a teacher's practice exists in a particular standard and seeing the next level to further advance that practice. This introductory seminar will expose Principals and Assistant Principals to the possibilities of these tools to enhance the instructional culture in their schools. Use of the PTS has already been incorporated in Quality Reviews, New Teacher Mentoring, and Fellows and University Pre-Service training. Participating schools that attend both the Introductory and Advanced PTS Seminars will qualify for training for staff.
