ELA PD Opportunities

Putting It All Together: ELA (Grades 6-8) - Session 3

  • Dates: 22 – 22 Jan, 2020
  • Location: Visalia
  • Address: 7000 W Doe Avenue, Suite A

Critical thinking, assessments, text selection, conferring, reading strategies: How do we put it all together in a way to increase students’ capacities as literate individuals?

These sessions are structured to build pedagogy with the most current literacy research so you leave knowing:

  • How to use instructional materials (district adopted or created) to implement the components of comprehensive literacy based on the ELA/ELD Standards. 
  • How to develop foundational literacy practices that build proficiency in reading. 
  • How to be intentional and responsive to readers, both individually and within small groups. 
  • How to build students’ deep understanding of reading through conferring, strategy groups, thinking, and effective expression. 
  • How to navigate the complexity of informational literacy in a digital world. 

This four-day series is designed to provide year-long support and opportunities to collaborate with other teachers to empower student reading. Join us for the year-long series or register for the session of your choosing.
