Hello Colleagues, Over the next two weeks you are invited to an in depth conversation with national coaches to learn about the CCRS English Language Arts (ELA) and Math professional development materials available in the LINCS resource collection.
This week (April 6-12) our focus is "A Deep Dive: What’s Behind the New Professional Development Materials for ELA/Literacy CCR Standards?"
A warm welcome to national coaches Meesha Brown, Rachel Etienne, and Jane Roy who will lead our discussion. The purpose for our discussion is to support administrators, professional development staff and all those who are implementing the standards to:
- Learn how the activities embedded within the four professional development units lead to “light bulb” moments. For example, realizing the importance of text complexity or how to craft quality writing prompts.
- Discover how to organize or amend the delivery of the the professional development units or ideas to fit the particulars of a local context.
Please join the conversation to pose your questions and share your experiences thus far with implementing the standards in your practice. We are fortunate to have access to these national experts and a forum where we can support one another as we move forward in this important work.
You can locate the professional development Materials CCR Standards: The Instructional Advances in English Language Arts/Literacy, Units 1–4 here:
Next week's (April 13-19) discussion will focus on math and be led by Kaye Forgione and Fabio Milner. The math professional development units are available at the links below.
