CPS Framework for Teaching Domain Colloquium
The CPS Framework for Teaching Domain Colloquium offers CPS teachers the opportunity to learn more about each of the Domains through discussion, analysis, and collaboration with their colleagues. Theresa Insalaco-DeCicco will guide participants through the process of ‘breaking down’ each Domain and determining what is considered ‘Distinguished level’ practice by evaluators during the observation cycle.
Instructor: Theresa Insalaco-DeCicco M.Ed., NBCT
Developing Minds: The 8 Neurodevelopmental Constructs
This professional development session addresses the eight neurodevelopmental constructs (attention, memory, language, neuromotor function, social cognition, temporal-sequential ordering, spatial ordering, and higher order cognition). This session analyzes these brain-mind processes to highlight tools and strategies teachers can use to apply brain-based learning theory to differentiate their instruction and increase student engagement.
Instructor: Michael P. Moriarty, NBCT
