The Academic Language and Literacy Architects Community of Practice is designed to engage elementary through postsecondary educators in becoming language architects. This session will provide educators with resources to cultivate and maintain a learning system that insists on rigor, breaks down barriers, aligns the work, and advocates for students. Through the implementation of language-building routines and scaffolded instruction, educators will explore how they support students in using their voice, culture, identity, and language to access and produce rigorous and language-rich content. They will leverage AVID’s college and career readiness skills by coaching students to nurture and grow their own student agency, opportunity knowledge, and rigorous academic preparedness. All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools experienced can be leveraged in face-to-face or virtual learning environments.
This Community of Practice requires all participants to have their own device or laptop that can connect to the internet. Participants must bring an acceptable device, power cord, and earbuds/headphones with them to the session. If a district-issued device is being used, be sure to log in to the device on the district network before attending. Device software and preferred web browsers (Chrome or Firefox) need to be up to date.
