Collaborating on curriculum, ideas for projects, assessment strategies, technical assessments, and student management needs to be coordinated through a focused effort across the state

Are you wondering how your colleagues are addressing and coping with online learning?

 

This week the CTE Technical Assistance Center of NY began a series of Support and Sharing Meetings for CTE Teachers by content area. Our first meeting was with the Cosmetology Teachers and it was a huge success!

 

During this time of uncertainty and significant stress, these meetings are intended to get the content area CTE teachers together to discuss how they are addressing the change in instruction and what they are doing:

·         to deliver content online, 

·         to reach out to students who may not have access to technology

·         that works – share videos or lesson ideas

·         and benefit from being connected with colleagues in the same content area.

 

The CTE Technical Assistance Center of NY and the CTE Directors (ACTEA) invite CTE content area teachers to participate in the upcoming virtual Sharing and Support Meetings. These meetings will take place virtually on ZOOM – and will also be recorded for those who may have a conflict.  Should you not be able to attend, please reach out to Mike Woods (mike@spnet.us) to request playback information.

 

Below is a chart showing the Content Area, Date, Time and Log-on information for the next 2 weeks – April 13th – 24th.  Feel free to share this information with your teachers or CTE colleagues. The log-in information can be added to your calendar, if you wish to join. Notice of other content area meetings will follow.

These facilitated meetings WILL help teachers who may be struggling or a be chance to get ideas for yourself as you grapple with online instruction in your field. We also would like to set up a repository for the tools and strategies that the group shares and provide access to other content area teachers around the state.

 

Meeting Agenda

·         Introduction – Who is and will be involved

·         What has worked for you?  Tools you are using, things you have developed, strategies for reaching out to and engaging students

·         What are you struggling with?  Suggestions?

·         Collection of materials

·         Do you want to meet again? How frequently? 

·         Best way to bring all teachers in your field into the group?

·         Other thoughts, ideas, needs

 

We hope you will join us for this valuable collaboration!
