Professional Learning From GVASCD
Each year, GVASCD offers a variety of professional growth opportunities to its members and other educators from across our region. The organization strives to provide opportunities which:
Enhance a member’s core knowledge and skills on best practices in the fields of curriculum, instruction, and assessment
Provide opportunities to work alongside professionals with similar goals/interests from other regions in order to learn from one another
Grow each member’s capacity to be an educational leader with a direct application for improving student achievement
Our events are based on research based practices and facilitated by both locally and nationally know speakers. In addition to local events, we partner with Teacher Centers, BOCES and NYS ASCD to expand our offerings and connect with colleagues from across the state.
Spring 2024 Learning Opportunities
From NYASCD: All Learning is Social and Emotional 2.0 with Nancy Frey and Doug Fisher
March 7, March 28 and April 18, 2024
While social and emotional learning (SEL) is most familiar as compartmentalized programs separate from academics, the truth is, all learning is social and emotional. Over the last four years, a lot has been learned about what works. What teachers say, the values we express, the materials and activities we choose, and the skills we prioritize all influence how students think, see themselves, and interact with content and with others.
From Fall 2023:
