Literacy Design Collaborative PDF Print E-mail

Course Description:  This training opportunity will offer support to ELA, science, social studies, and CTAE teachers in the integration of powerful literacy instruction with their existing content curriculum.  Teachers will work collaboratively to plan and create Common Core aligned teaching materials as they develop LDC modules and mini tasks.  They will also gain access to an online electronic platform for designing instruction, which will provide exemplary modules, teacher-created mini-tasks, and other resources such as student examplars, scoring rubrics and teacher videos.

Course Content:  LDC has been developed by nationally recognized literacy experts and informed by teacher-practitioners.  Research conducted by Research for Action (RFA) has confirmed preliminary findings:  that LDC leads to teacher instructional shifts and improved student outcomes.

Support for New Principals PDF Print E-mail

The Georgia Professional Standards Commission invites new and newer principals to attend two full-day workshops.  These workshops are intended to help create a support link among principals and provide other opportunities for growth.  The framework for the program is research-based.  The focus will be on TKES and LKES.  The Wallace Foundations's Five Practices of Effective School Leaders serves as a research foundation to the work.  There will be practical applications of the principalship in "how to" formats.  Finally, the sessions will be interactive, designed to develop working cohorts of principals in the RESA area  The sessions will guide prinicpals to develop an ongoing professional learning network among their colleagues.
