Current Offerings

The OWL Teacher Center Summer 2018 Program
Workshops, Graduate and Inservice Courses

**************************************************************

Please check this site often for updates on our programs.

As of July 1, 2012, the OWL Teacher Center will be collecting fees for courses and workshops due to severe cuts in our funding. One credit courses will be $35, 2 credits $70, and 3 credits $95. Professional circles will also be $35. Workshop fees will vary according to number of hours. There will be a $50 service charge for graduate courses in addition to the tuition paid to the college.
We hope that you understand the impact of losing 75% of our funding for 2013, and that these fees will help sustain us in these very difficult times.

To request SAS Curriculum Pathways training for groups of teachers, please email the director at owlcenter@lindenhurstschools.org.

Creating the Optimal Classroom Environment

Instructors: Deborah Weinstein & Heather Catron

This course is approved for advancement to MA75 for Lindenhurst teachers.

15 hours, 1 inservice credit Grades K-12 – All Areas
Dates: Saturdays, June 1 & 8, 2019 Time: 8 am-3:30 pm
Site: Lindenhurst MS, Room N117 Fee: $35

Your classroom is more than four walls. It is the first impression that students will have of you. It’s a catalyst for learning and discovery. It’s a place where students can feel safe and comfortable enough to take intellectual risks. It has an inviting atmosphere for all types of learners. It is a place where students can feel valued by their teacher and peers and develop high levels of civility and respect.

This course will focus on Domain 2 of the Danielson Rubric, which encompasses creating an environment of respect and rapport, establishing a culture for learning, managing classroom procedures, managing student behavior, and organizing physical space.

We look forward to collaborating with colleagues of all grade levels and subject areas to improve our students’ learning experiences by creating the most optimal classroom environment possible.

Deadline for registration: May 25, 2019
