• This course is designed for teachers from grades K-12.The participant will be introduced to the alignment between Mathematics Standards addressing the State Anchors, Eligible Content, and Common Core. This course will parallel the Mathematics Standards snd Common Core set forth by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. It will also incorporate other educational researchers methodology aimed at teaching students to understand mathematics. The course will be designed to assist teachers across the curriculum to instruct their students to utilize a variety of study tools (example:writing tests, reading strategies, graphs) to support mathematics skills and to build their students into successful mathematics students.
  • This course is designed for teachers who teach mathematics and science from grades K-12. The participants will be introduced to the alignment between Mathematics and Science Standards addressing the State Anchors and Eligible Content.

Teachers will be introduced to SAS as well as many PDE data tools.

  • In working with teachers in a variety of school districts, it has been found that teachers are being provided with the “what” and not the “how”. They are asked to respect and accommodate individual student’s learning differences, but they are held accountable for teaching all students the same set of standards. Teachers are mandated to implement an ever increasing array of educational practices. Too often, there is no attempt to demonstrate how these practices are related or support each other. This course will embed research and teaching experiences within it to develop a framework that helps to integrate multiple instructional approaches designed to meet the needs of diverse learners. The purpose of this 2 credit class is to share the framework and to provide educators with concrete strategies for implementing standards-based instruction in diverse and inclusive classrooms.

  • As integration and inclusion of students with disabilities has progressed over the last five to eight years, knowledge and implementation of best practice may have been scattered and disconnected. “Traditional” roles and responsibilities have been altered for the benefit of all students regardless of disability category. Aspects of inclusion are expected to occur naturally; however, all students not only need access to the general education curriculum, but also actively participate in it. This course serves as the foundation for not only SAS integration, but also the faces of inclusion and how Standards Based IEP’s can be created and implemented with fidelity.
