These instructional strategies and decisions will be documented in a variety of ways including, but not limited to: video recordings, lesson plans, observational notes, and reflections. Course participants will complete assigned readings, engage in activities around those readings, and use the newly acquired knowledge to reflect on their current instructional practices. Much of the in-class time will be dedicated to group discussions of the readings, collaborative analysis of student work, and planning immediate next steps for teaching based on student evidence and the grade level progressions within the Common Core State Standards. https://login.myquickreg.com/register/event/event.cfm?eventid=27850

Cancelled - Math Teachers PLC (Professional Learning Community)

Mar 18 from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM

Virtual - Virtual

Math Teacher PLC Facilitator: Tina Lemmens, CESA 7 Math Specialist Description: CESA 7 supported educators in all subject areas and grade bands during the physical closure of schools in Spring 2020 due to COVID 19. These content area PLCs and networks allowed area educators and CESA 7 staff to provide updates, share resources and collaborate. In an effort to continue to support educators, CESA 7 will continue to offer monthly Professional Learning Communities and networks for educators. This is a great opportunity to work through the PLC guiding questions: What do we expect our students to learn? (Goals/Expectations), How will we know they are learning? ( Assessment), How will we respond when they don't learn? – (Intervention), How will we respond if they already know it? (enrichment). The 2020-21 school year will likely be fluid in delivery and CESA 7 PLC’s and networks will continue to support educators throughout the year, especially in districts with stand alone department members, with these one time per month communities of practice. Math Teacher PLC Schedule: September 24, 2020 / 3:30 - 4:30 PM October 22, 2020 / 3:30 - 4:30 PM November 12, 2020 / 3:30 - 4:30 PM December 17, 2020 / 3:30 - 4:30 PM January 28, 2021 / 3:30 - 4:30 PM February 25, 2021 /3:30 - 4:30 PM March 18, 2021 /3:30 - 4:30 PM April 15, 2021 /3:30 - 4:30 PM May 27, 2021 /3:30 - 4:30 PM Each district has the opportunity to bring an unlimited number of school and district leaders to each virtual session.
