Cross-cutting Concepts.

...seeking to share with you what you need to know, NOW!

...providing the opportunity to discuss assessments and how student Performance Expectations might change assessments in the future - assessments which may require understanding of instructional content, interdisciplinary connections and how science and engineering is done.

It's a P.D. Bargain

Where else can you spend two-and-one-half days getting this much high quality science teaching professional development at such a reasonable price?

The STANYS Annual Conference continues to be a professional development bargain, and the fees for registration, special events, and meals have had little or no increases over the past four years.
