CNYCSS serves our regional teaching community through providing ongoing professional development opportunities. These include our annual professional development day and fall and spring programs, among others.
In 2013, John Langdon and Doug Pelton formed a professional learning community dedicated to finding new approaches to teaching Global History. This 9th and 10th grade teacher team was called PARRE (A practical approach to regaining relevance and enjoyment). The group worked together over the years to make sense of the changes in the state curriculum and testing and to share lesson ideas and tools that worked well in the classroom.
As changes at the state level continue, we're looking to expand in 2017 under the title "Global History Group". Any 9th or 10th grade Global History teacher from the region is welcome to join us. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information
