The Instructional Coaches and Elective Educators Community of Practice is designed for grades 6–12 instructional coaches and elective educators (e.g., art, world languages, music). This CoP is NOT for teachers of the AVID Elective course. Educators will participate in Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading (WICOR®) instructional strategies through a hands-on approach to ensure students’ engagement, access to rigor, and college success, and will leave this experience with tools to connect with a diverse population of learners. 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
