This free virtual mini-course series will support ELA teacher educators to develop K-12 instruction and teacher education that fills immediate needs for children and contributes to building an education that dismantles injustice instead of perpetuating it.
Preparing Novices to Teach Priority Content for the 2020-21 School Year and Beyond
A Free Mini-Course Series for Teacher Educators in English Language Arts, Upper Elementary-Grade 12
TeachingWorks invites you to join us for a series of virtual learning mini-courses that will enable you to build your understanding of critical content in ELA and develop practice-based approaches for teaching that content to novice teachers. This mini-course series builds on broad consensus in the field around the most important content in the ELA curriculum based on guidance issued by the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) for “priority” content for the 2020-2021 academic year. Sessions and modules will focus explicitly on how specific kinds of reasoning and engagement with complex texts can support the development of mutual respect, understanding of the experiences and cultures of others, and knowledge of systems of oppression, as well as the ability to use literacy tools to disrupt injustice in all forms.
When you complete a mini-course, you will emerge with specific practice-based activities and plans to use with your novice teachers to prepare them to teach critical ELA content in ways that are skillful, adaptive, and advance justice in classrooms and schools.
