Patrick Peterson's insight:

The Center is collaborating with the district, SUNYIT, ESM (East Syracuse Minoa) and Siemens on developing and implementing an 8th grade STEAM program. STEAM is designed for collaborative learning opportunities involving science, technology, social studies, English, and math.  Classroom activities promote 21st century skills and connect to real world issues.  It includes flexibility of scheduling to allow for more meaningful classroom experiences.

 

 Currently the Center is arranging visits to ESM for 8th and 9th grade teachers.  A small “Teaching is the Core grant, plus Center funds are being used for an Action Research project on student engagement.  Finally we are considering developing a communication network for the Districts interested in STEAM.

Patrick Peterson's insight:

Dr. Rick Detour and colleagues at Solution Tree research on structured PLCs is a well-documented process for creating highly effective, building and grade level professional, learning communities.  The learning community design emphasizes data driven instruction and integrate specific classroom strategies with specific roles for principals, district administrators and teachers.   This fall, the District, Center and HPTA “seized the opportunity” and implemented a math PLCs--earning as we go. 

 

Our k-5 math PLCs are embedded within each grade level during one planning period a week.  The initial goal is to adapt the modules and enVision into a guaranteed curriculum at each grade level.

 

In addition teachers in grade 6-8 PLCS are meeting after school to adapt the modules and insure vertical alignment as well as horizontal alignment with Special Education.   

 

Both groups are using Google.docs to share work.
