Program: SCI: Literacy

Audience: Teachers Grades 6-12

Dates: 7/10/2020 to 7/31/2020

ClosedStarting Soon

Overview:

Once a reader has mastered foundational reading skills, comprehension of ever-increasingly complex texts becomes a main goal. Comprehension, being comprised of the invisible thinking work of a reader, can often be a gray area for explicit instruction. Is comprehension the ability to answer questions about a text? Is it the ability to "lose oneself" in a book? Is it being able to write about or discuss a text? Is it all of the above? This online session will walk teachers through creating clarity around expectations for a reader's comprehension, including considering the work of a reader's head and heart. Participants will design assessments and instruction around specific comprehension goals, based on a clear and confident vision for readers.

Participants completing this course will be awarded 6 CTLE hours. Please see the structure and expectations for the course below:

Four 1-hour modules that participants will have a week to finish each:

Module 1: Week of July 6-10

Overview:

Join colleagues, authors, and equity leaders for our region's first virtual Academy! Promoting equity and recognizing ways educational leaders can fight racism, as well as embrace and foster equity in action in our schools are the focus of this year's Academy.

Wednesday, July 29th

Educational Leaders can make a difference in fighting racism in schools. While no sincere educator would ever willingly aspire to racist behaviors, we can, unfortunately, be blind to our racial privilege and ignorant of the cultural competencies necessary to ensure that our Black students can fully access the PK-12 public educational experience. Angela Davis said it best when she said, "In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist. We must be anti-racist”. Deconstructing implicit biases, preconceived notions about race, culture and language is important work for educators. So too, is actively advocating against racial injustice. This day will feature recognized educational leaders who will provide direct skill development and practical strategies for educational administrators to take action in order to make our schools more equitable.

Thursday, July 30th

Educational leaders must consider equity in all actions that they take. As instructional leaders, they must consider the learning that is essential for all students and how to provide equitable access. The sessions on this day will continue to focus on how leaders can promote equity through their instructional leadership actions, through their instructional technology plans and delivery, and through their leadership behaviors in supporting their staff. The sessions will provide leaders with strategies and considerations for their planning and implementation in the upcoming year.
