PD Workshops

Professional Development for Teachers & Administrators

LILAC is a CTLE certified organization, meaning that our professional development workshops can be used for teachers or administrators who need to log hours in order to maintain their teaching licenses.

LILAC offers two one-hour After School PD Workshops held in the fall and winter. These workshops are complimentary for LILAC members, and only $10 for nonmembers.

Each participant will leave these workshops with something of practical value for his or her day-to-day instruction. See the above "After School Workshop" link for more details about upcoming workshops.

LILAC offers two three-hour Luncheon Workshops held in December and May. These workshops are offered at a reduced price to LILAC members. Each participant will leave these workshops with something of practical value for his or her day-to-day instruction. See the above "Luncheon Workshop" link for more details about upcoming workshops.

Friday, December 14, 2018
12:00 - 3:00 PM.

You are cordially invited to attend LILAC’s 2018-2019 “Winter Professional Development and Networking Event.” This year, we are pleased to offer “Inquiry and Research: Developing Great Questions and Using Reliable Sources.” In addition to this professional development workshop, last year’s mini-grant winners will present the programs which the mini-grants supported. The keynote workshop entitled, “Inquiry and Research: Developing Great Questions and Using Reliable Sources” will be presented by Victor Jaccarino, ELA Consultant, and Ed Schmieder, English Chair at Sayville Schools.

During this workshop presented by two LILAC Past Presidents, participants will focus on two shifts in how we teach research. The Next Generation Standards emphasize the need to develop inquiry questions and work with reliable sources. The presenters will address both issues and will explore the concept of “fake news.”
