Digital badge Upon completion of professional learning, educators will have the opportunity to receive a digital badge representing their learning experience.

The Transforming Literacy Through Content-Area Reading: Elementary Community of Practice is designed to engage elementary educators in considering what happens when we leverage disciplinary literacy skills to transform gaps into gains. Participants will explore opportunities to provide students with diverse text types and activate background knowledge to support engagement with content and extend students’ depth of comprehension. Educators will experience AVID’s Critical Reading Process and engage in collaborative strategies that build students’ content-area literacy skills and allow them to access rigorous content. This Community of Practice will empower every educator with the knowledge, strategies, and resources necessary to foster a culture of literacy and gradually release responsibility to students. All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools experienced can be leveraged in face-to-face, blended, 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.

  • Acceptable devices include laptops, Chromebooks, Surface devices, iPads, and iPad Pros.
  • Unacceptable devices include mini iPads, Kindle or Galaxy tablets, and smartphones.
