Two Upcoming Professional Learning Opportunities from the Special Education Office

Open to: Teachers to students with disabilities.

Opportunity at a Glance: There are two upcoming 2-day sessions this July. Each session is eligible for 5 hours of CTLE credit. It is required to attend both sessions:

  • Collaborative Strategic Reading (CSR) City-Wide 2 Day – The Collaborative Strategic Reading (CSR) framework is an evidenced-based, systematic approach to boosting comprehension in mixed-ability classrooms and intervention settings. CSR incorporates cooperative learning, vocabulary development, questioning techniques, opportunities to practice, and students’ use of prior knowledge.
  • REWARDS City-Wide 2 Day – Designed for a wide range of struggling learners and instructional settings, the REWARDS approach has been proven effective in increasing fluency, comprehension, and academic vocabulary. Teacher and student materials and access to the publisher’s data portal will be provided to enable participants to immediately implement the program in their schools.

Key dates: Sessions begin on Tuesday, July 16 and Wednesday, July 17 respectively.
