CUNY CCI Professional Development Seminars


CUNY CCI professional development seminars will consist of four sessions for literacy teachers and four sessions for math teachers, to begin in January, 2013.  


Reading and Writing Practices for High School Equivalency

Reading and Writing Practices for High School Equivalency will focus on the teacher's role in helping students read and respond to higher level texts.  

Teachers will learn to:

  • Help students build and activate background knowledge in the areas of science and social studies through reading a variety of texts
  • Model effective reading strategies such as paraphrasing, annotating, summarizing and self-questioning
  • Help students learn to identify and evaluate writers' claims and evidence and respond effectively to texts in writing.



Mathematics Learning for High School Equivalency

Mathematics Learning for High School Equivalency will focus on implementing the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice in the classroom, with an emphasis on student thinkming and cognitively challenging mathematical tasks.

Teachers will learn to:

  • Help students make sense of problems and persevere in solving them; construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others and attend to precision.
  • Develop on inquiry-based math class, focused on problem-solving, social learning and quantitative reasoning
  • Develop a set of general effective problem-solving and sense-making strategies


A fifth session for both literacy and math teachers will focus on ways to help students use writing as a tool to articulate and reflect on their own understanding of charts, graphs and mathematical problems. 


Dates and Location


Reading and Writing Practices will be held at a central Manhattan location from 2-5 p.m. on alternate Fridays beginning January 25th, 2013. 


Mathematics Learning will begin on February 1, 2013 and will continue on alternate Fridays at the same location.
