The English Language Arts Community of Practice is designed to support ELA educators in grades 6–12. Participants will become familiar with and deepen their understanding of intentional integration of speaking and listening, writing to communicate, and how the AVID Critical Reading Process provides access to rigorous nonfiction, fiction, and nontraditional texts. Participants will engage in both synchronous and semi-synchronous learning. All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools introduced in this Community of Practice can be leveraged in face-to-face or virtual learning environments. Participants will also have the opportunity to engage with colleagues throughout the school year to deepen and broaden their learning through Extended Learning Pathways, On-Demand Learning, and professional discourse.
Three-day professional learning through a virtual platform using videoconferencing provides a high-paced, interactive, dynamic learning experience while modeling engaging and rigorous instruction. There will also be an opportunity to engage with colleagues throughout the school year to deepen and broaden learning through Extended Learning Pathways, On-Demand Learning modules, One-to-One Collaborative Coaching, and professional discourse.Learn More & Enroll
