Our mission is to enhance teaching as a profession.
Nook E-reader Lending Program
Nook e-readers are available for loan through the Mid-Hudson Teacher Center to educators in our member districts. These e-readers make it easy for students to highlight, take notes, and look up unfamiliar words. They can also be very helpful in addressing the skills of using text-based answers and writing from sources. Training on use of the Nooks is required for borrowing. A workshop on using the Nooks is being offered January 29, 2014. A class set of Nooks can be borrowed or a small amount to do group work for up to a month at a time. Attached is a list of the books that are available for use on the Nooks. Some of these books are from the NYS ELA modules. Any questions please call the office at 845-257-2885.
This workgroup is for Special Education teachers of all content areas to differentiate NYS modules or Modules that have been developed locally. Teachers will examine student work and develop strategies to develop necessary CCLS skills. The participants will participate in a collaborative learning community to share strategies and support student learning. This is a continuation of the fall workgroup but attendance in the fall workshop is not required. The workgroup is for all grade levels and teachers will be divided into groups based on the needs of their students.
