RTTT – Common Core Update from Albany Math & ELA Grades 3-5
10/27/2014

The focus of this full day workshop is to present insights and updates to the Common Core standards for grades 3-5 in BOTH MATH and ELA.
In the morning, we will cover ELA and will be looking at and noticing trends in data fictional data) in order to prioritize standards. The session will touch upon how to differentiate and stay grounded in a priority standard without losing the integrity of the learning targets. Participants will analyze text structure, text complexity, and utilize protocols to create text dependent questions.
The Math segment is intended to support an implementation of A Story of Units. We will examine the sequence of concepts through which multiplication and division are introduced and developed. Educators teaching and supporting these grade levels will understand how the concepts and skills taught at each grade level lead students towards a profound understanding of multiplication and division. Math is fun!!!!!!

ELA – Making the Most of Module 2 – Grade 5
10/29/2014

This workshop is a working session for anyone looking to streamline the domains into manageable sessions, while keeping learning targets intact. We will delve into Module 2, and examine learning targets, suggested texts, assessments, performance tasks and protocols. Teachers will be given the opportunity to dissect and modify module lessons to better align pacing with allotted literacy blocks, as well as to ensure that best practices are utilized in order to meet the rigor and standard of the Common Core. There will be opportunity to share ideas on how to modify activities/protocols as well. Participants may bring their own electronic devices and should also bring a hard copy of Module 2 (if available), any suggested texts from Module 2, and/or any texts being considered as replacement texts. Participants will take away an effective and manageable approach to implementing Module 2 to achieve student growth and success.

RTTT – Math Updates from Albany – How to Use the Modules for AIS and Remediation K-6 – Repeat of Sept 29th
11/10/2014

This session demonstrates how to use the modules for remediation and general AIS practices. We will use examples to pinpoint a particular content standard(s) where a student may be struggling and develop methods to reference lessons from either the current grade or previous grades to assist in moving the student forward towards the current mathematics of their grade. This session assumes the modules are being used as the primary curriculum. Because we will be referencing all the modules, participants must come prepared with technology to quickly access the information on engageNY. -The Story of Units / (6th Grade The Story of Ratios) -All Modules of all grades K-6 (electronic copies) -How to Implement the Story of Units -Additional documents related to the curriculum In addition, participants must bring student work (assessments, etc.) which will be used during the session for practice. Time will be given during the session for teachers to develop plans for students needing remediation in their class.

Elementary Common Core Math Institute – Repeat of sessions beginning Oct 7th – Must attend all 5 days – Nov 25, Dec 16, Jan 21, Feb 24, Mar 13

Teachers must understand the mathematics they are responsible for teaching and more! This elementary math institute is intended to educate elementary educators in the mathematical principles of common core mathematics with the mathematical practices of the Common Core as the pedagogical window. Choices made in curriculum and lesson implementation are based on this core knowledge. Each session will study one of the domains of the Common Core and will explore, educate and prepare teachers through the understanding of mathematics beyond the procedural. These sessions are based strictly on the content standards, models and suggestions made in the progression documents written by the writers of Common Core mathematics. This will be a multi-session process. All teachers will be required to attend all the sessions so that the coherency of the common core is upheld. The sessions will be instructional and engaging as we model the mathematical practices of the Common Core. At completion, BOCES will offer a certificate of completion to all participants. Session 1 – Introduction, Numbers in Base 10 Session 2 – Fractions Session 3 – Counting and Cardinality/Operations and Operations and Algebraic Thinking Session 4 – Geometric Measurement/Geometry Session 5 – Categorical Data/Measurement and Data
