Elementary School Workshops

UFT Vice President for Elementary Schools Karen Alford has scheduled these workshops for UFT members in elementary schools who wish to upgrade their teaching skills. The fee is $10 for participants who do not request Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) hours and $30 for participants who elect to receive CTLE hours (which you need to begin collecting once you are professionally certified). All workshops are held on Thursdays at UFT headquarters, from 4 to 6 p.m. (see the security agent in the lobby for the exact room number; picture ID is required).

All elementary school workshops for the fall of 2017 are currently full. Please check back for spring workshops!

The Many Faces of Our Families (Grades K–3) FULL

Date: Dec. 7

Many early grade social studies units focus on students and their families. In this interdisciplinary workshop, through literacy and art integration, participants will create self and family portraits using simple art supplies. You will walk away with simple artist techniques that will help everyone feel successful.

Social and Interactive Studies FULL

Date: Dec. 21

Stuck on trying to find what to do to teach social studies? Make it fun and interactive through read alouds, centers, play and classroom routines! In this workshop you will use the Social Studies Scope and Sequence and the CCLS to “make and take” ideas to bring back to the classroom.
