About this Event
This 90-minute workshop will provide teachers with strategies that use online tools to make three-dimensional learning accessible to students while learning virtually. The workshop will present an example of the modification of a three-dimensional lesson into an interactive one that can be assigned synchronously or asynchronously.

New Visions is holding a workshop to provide administrators and leaders of science teachers with a deeper understanding of our NYSSLS (NGSS) - designed Biology resources.  Leaders will engage in an immersive experience from Unit 2 - Humans vs. Bacteria, and learn how these resources can be used to simultaneously support remote learning and the shift to the new science standards. 

If you have any questions, please contact Dora Kastel at dkastel@newvisions.org

Savvas will be hosting another professional learning opportunity with Dr. Ken Miller author of Biology/Living Environment textbook. 

Topic:  From 23-and-Me to Gene Therapy. CRISPR gene editing, high-throughput DNA sequencing, and gene drives are changing how the human genome is studied and modified. In this workshop, we will review these techniques, and challenge participants to develop activities that will enable students to confront the social, moral, and ethical issues raised by the new human genetics.

Please find the latest announcement from NYSED with regard to the laboratory requirement for Regents Science courses. 

In summary, while schools may waive the 1200 minute laboratory requirement due to the difficulty of completing laboratory exercises in the remote environment, students must still be prepared for the performance components and written questions based on the skills students acquire from the laboratory exercises of the Regents exam. 

While the January 2021 Regents has been canceled, no decision has been made with regard to the June 2021 and August 2021.
