Teacher Times #17
January 28, 2013
New Resources on the Common Core Library
Visit the Common Core Library for new professional development activities. See the Resources for Teacher Teams page for activities that:
§ ask participants to reflect on the implementation of the citywide instructional expectations
§ help participants identify areas of alignment and gaps through an examination of student work and the Common Core standards
§ explore what Danielson competency 3b (using questioning and discussion techniques) looks like in practice.
Spanish versions of the Parent Roadmaps, guides that support parents to help their children learn the Common Core Standards in English Language Arts and Math at home, are available here.
For questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
W-2 Wage and Tax Statements
Distribution of W-2 Wage and Tax Statements will take place during the week of January 28. In order to ensure that W-2 statements for teachers, guidance counselors, and social workers in the Absent Teacher Reserve are sent to the correct assignment location, Teacher Hiring Support will not honor any assignment requests that are made for January 28 - February 8. Note that W-2 distribution locations will be included in the weekly assignment notification emailed to ATRs on January 24.
Grant opportunities are posted on the Grants website (you can visit the page on any computer using this link). This week’s highlights include:

Emergency Lesson Plans
Please print out the lesson with a compliment of copies so they can be handed to a sub.
Kecia needs to be able to dispatch the sub when they show up.
A lesson plan should have a learning objective that will be fulfilled in an ENTIRE period. Thanks.
