Designed to establish a learning community through sustained and consistent cohorts throughout the year, building trust and laying the groundwork in areas that are critical to the success of all students. Three full-day classes for cohorts, evenly spaced throughout the year, tailored to thoroughly investigate how to strategically and thoughtfully plan for instruction so that all students have equitable access to content while developing all of their language skills. Emphasis is placed on implementation as homework will be assigned, and email communication will be encouraged between classes to maintain momentum and accountability.
The goal is to provide the teachers with the in-class support and on-the-job learning required to implement the training they have received to a high degree of fidelity. This is the follow-through that is critical to the success of professional development. It is a commitment to work closely with teachers to guide them on their journey to quality integration of English language learners. Interaction may include modeling, co-teaching, observations, and feedback on strategic implementation in the classrooms. Additionally, accompanying administrators on Walk-Throughs will sharpen the collective lens through which teachers are observed and expectations are aligned.
Designed to motivate, inspire, and incite the entire school community to action, the Interactive Keynote sets the tone and establishes the climate and culture that the district expects to embody as it moves forward to Up the Bar on the quality of education all students deserve.
