  • Welcome back!

    Center for Career Services welcomes students to a new year

    It was all hands on deck outside of Building B on the campus of the Center for Career Services. Teachers, administrators and aides organized themselves at tables ready to welcome busload after busload of students to the start of a new year of school throughout the week of Sept. 3.

    The Center’s opening day is different from other school districts as it takes several days for the full group of students to arrive for their first day of school at the technical training center. When they arrive on campus depends on what day their home district starts the school year.

    During the week, as students arrived each day, they were greeted with an explanation of how to find their bus back to their home school at the end of their session at the center. They also received their schedule and, if necessary, were given instructions on how to find their classroom.

    It was also a time for seniors to share greetings with their teachers and for new students to learn their way around campus.

  • Writing Revolution: Teachers immerse themselves in new strategies

    Teachers took part in the three-day Writing Revolution: Advancing Thinking Through Writing course at the SWBOCES PD Center Aug. 29. 

    The course introduces participants to the Hochman Method, an explicit set of sequenced strategies for teaching expository writing that can be integrated into any content. Specific strategies are presented to improve the structure, coherence and clarity of students’ writing, beginning at the sentence-level. The focus moves to outlines, paragraphs, and compositions. Participants also learned to teach note-taking, summarization, and revision. 

    This course was geared toward educators in grades 3-12 and is especially suited to teachers of English, social studies, and science, especially special education and ENL teachers. 

    Future opportunities to take part in the Writing Revolution course come on Oct. 23 and Nov. 5. See the MyLearningPlan link at pd.swboces.org

    Summer school is off to a great start at our Tappan Hill School in Tarrytown! Every morning, students in Special Education teacher Kathy Knudsen’s AIIM class grab their mats and head outside to a shady spot for their daily fitness routine. The students stretch and build strength using a routine created through the collaborative efforts of Phyllis Marto, PT, Diane Storm, Adaptive Physical Education teacher, and Ms. Knudsen. At the end of each session, the students lie on their backs and practice mindfulness techniques.
