NEW! Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Fine Arts & Essay Display
The New York State Education Department has recently been authorized to co-sponsor with our colleagues in the New York State Office of General Services (OGS) an event in celebration of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This inter-agency initiative will honor Dr. King’s memory with an exhibit of student art and essays. The New York State Education Department and OGS invite children throughout New York State to submit original artwork illustrating Dr. King’s Six Principles and Steps of Nonviolence, or essays about celebrating Dr. King’s birthday throughout the year. All entries will be displayed in Albany’s Empire State Plaza at the time of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Memorial Observance in January. Additionally, selected artwork from the submitted entries will be used in the development of next year’s posters publicizing and promoting events in Dr. King’s memory. http://www.oms.nysed.gov/hr/MLKartsessay07.html

NEW! 2007 New Web Site Provides Information on Careers in Information Science

NY ECLIPSE
The New York State Education Department, in partnership with the National Science Resources Center (NSRC), is implementing a multi-year science education systemic change initiative — New York Enhancing Collaborative Leadership for Improved Performance in Science Education (NY ECLIPSE) — that will build leadership teams within local school districts. This initiative provides research-based products and services to assist New York State school districts in initiating, implementing, and sustaining effective inquiry-centered pre-kindergarten through grade twelve science programs for all students. NY ECLIPSE is based on the NSRC’s program, Leadership and Assistance for Science Education Reform, which is a nationally renowned professional development model that provides a comprehensive approach to district-wide systemic change in science education. The NY ECLIPSE initiative targets “renewal” efforts in each of the State’s large urban school districts including Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Yonkers and New York City.

Building a Presence (BaP) Points of Contact still needed in every school in NYS!
The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) in partnership with the NYSED and with funding from the Exxon/Mobil Foundation, has developed a national initiative to create a comprehensive communications and professional development network of science education advocates - which is referred to as Building a Presence (BaP). The objectives of the project are to create a state and national network for K-12 teachers of science to share resources about effective science teaching and learning, lessen science teacher isolation, help science teachers implement state and national science education standards in their schools, stimulate professional development opportunities for science teachers, and provide teachers with resources to help all students learn science. NYS is seeking a point of contact in each school to receive email announcements and to share them with colleagues. Please forward this information to teachers of science in your district, and have interested teachers contact Nancy Ridenour at nvr1943@clarityconnect.com for further details.

The NSTA Learning Center
Every teacher wants to grow their understanding of the subjects they teach and the pedagogical implications. To address this challenge, NSTA is proud to make available the Beta release of their electronic professional development (PD) website.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

NYS Physical Education Profile (PE Profile)
The PE Profile is a set of State-developed local assessments that may be used to provide evidence of the levels of student achievement for the physical education portion of the New York State learning standards for health, physical education, and family and consumer sciences (1996), and these results may also be used to evaluate the district physical education program. The PE Profile is to be used at the discretion of local school districts to provide that evidence for physical education. The statewide roll-out of the PE Profile will begin during the 2007-08 school year through professional development events planned by the Staff and Curriculum Development Network of each BOCES and the Big 5 school districts. Updates, frequently asked questions, and the physical education profile toolkit are available online at the web link above.

Physical Education Requirement
The State Education Department has issued a field memo dated January 2007, regarding Physical Education Programs in response to concerns about the administration of physical education programs that lead to the attainment of NYS learning standards. This memo provides guidance for schools to better ascertain their compliance with Section 135.4 of the Commissioner's Regulations. School districts are encouraged to review the field memo to ensure that they are in compliance with the number of days per week and total minutes per week that are required for physical education at each grade level. The field memo and regulations may be accessed at http://www.p12.nysed.gov/ciai/pe/fieldmemPEjan07.pdf.

What is Scientifically Based Research? A Guide for Teachers
More than ever, educators are expected to make decisions that guarantee quality instruction.

Effective teachers use scientific thinking in their classrooms all the time. This booklet, provides a brief introduction to understanding and using scientifically based research.
