Citywide Pre-K Professional Development: Thursday April 23, 2015
The Division of Early Childhood Education (DECE) will host the fourth and final Citywide Professional Development of the 2014-2015 school year on Thursday, April 23rd, 2015. The focus of the professional development session is Transitions. Using the Prekindergarten Foundation for the Common Core (PKFCC) learning standards, the session will explore transitioning students into and out of pre-kindergarten in a developmentally appropriate way. Both new and experienced teachers will learn innovative strategies that support transitions for all students. New York City Early Education Center (NYCEEC) and district school lead teachers, assistant teachers and/or paraprofessionals will work in partnership during the 3-hour professional development sessions.
Supplemental Authentic Assessment Training
Please note: When lead teachers register for the Citywide Professional Development, they will be given the opportunity to also register for the Supplemental Authentic Assessment Training — a 2 ½ hour supplemental authentic assessment training on collecting evidence (i.e. observations, student work, photos). The supplemental training in authentic assessments will be at various locations throughout the City in the morning and afternoon, but may require travel from the designated Citywide Professional Development location.
The supplemental training in authentic assessments is recommended for new lead teachers and/or teachers who are new to using an authentic assessment tool.
Space is limited for all sessions. Please register here by 4:00 PM on April 15th, 2015. Each attendee must register separately using an individual email address. Please note: we will use the first registration submission as the confirmed location, if multiple submissions are made.
