We offer four core services testing:
Our institutes draw on research-based best practices in professional learning and adolescent literacy. A 3- to 5-day intensive institute with teams of teachers results in learning breakthroughs that can be built upon during the year with responsive coaching (with our support or via your own PLC structures). We tailor our teacher institutes to meet the needs of each school based on individual needs assessment results; see an example curriculum of a five day institute here.
Our coaches have extensive experience working in classrooms and leading site-based professional development with teams of content-area teachers. Our site-based coaching work looks quite different depending on each school’s needs; however, common elements always include the identification of school-based teacher leaders within content areas who help support teacher professional learning between AdLit PD coaching sessions with teams.
We host cross-district webinars every other month on topics ranging from academic language to perspective- taking in history. Check out our calendar of events for more information.
Over the past half dozen years we have created a massive library of resources and materials that we love to share with our partner schools. Every teacher who works with us can access our complete library of materials including PowerPoint slides, facilitator’s guides, and handouts to lead learning back in their schools.
