Early Reading Training with TNTP and Tennessee Department of Education
In partnership with TNTP, we provided 5 days of training on reading foundational skills to approximately 11,000 PreK – Grade 4 educators as part of the state’s Reading 360 initiative during Summer 2021. This course trained teachers on a sounds-first approach to reading instruction and supported the use of Tennessee’s Foundational Skills Curriculum Supplement.
EL Education Implementation with Independence Mission Schools
In this 5,000 student network, we supported educators to adopt EL Education in grades PreK – 2. Working side by side with leaders, we created a district-wide vision and instructional plan for early literacy, provided intensive training focused on the EL Skills Block, and provided targeted coaching to leaders. We are currently working to build capacity within the network by developing a team of teacher leaders who will lead professional learning and teacher planning over time.
CKLA and Early Literacy Training for Tulsa Public Schools
In this 32,000 student district, we provided training to improve early literacy instruction and strengthen the district’s implementation of Core Knowledge Language Arts in grades K – 5. We provided live and asynchronous training for teachers on foundational literacy skills, building knowledge and reading comprehension, and planning practices such as unit and lesson study. For school leaders and coaches, we led training on CKLA’s Assessment and Remediation Guide to support students who are struggling to master reading foundational skills.
