English Language Arts
ESD 112 English Language Arts (ELA) Coordinators work throughout the region with school districts to assist in the implementation of the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts. Our staff can provide job-embedded learning that engages teachers in constructive teaming to improve teaching practices and student learning or formalized professional development training.
These professional development opportunities can be designed to be one-time, short term training or repeated site visits. They are designed to meet the needs of your building or district. The support can be provided to teacher teams, full teaching staff, PLCs or other leadership teams.
Suggested topics are utilizing data to drive instruction, foundational skills training, and development of a cross battery assessment plan, training on the components of literacy, and building a tiered instructional model.
