EPSD Culturally Responsive Teaching and ELD Professional Learning Courses

Program Description

EPSD has designed four courses for teachers to expand their learning in Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT) and English language development (ELD).  Three of the courses are book study courses with anchor text that provide a menu of options for how to implement the learning directly into the classroom.  All 3 courses are followed up with blended and personalized learning modules for teachers which staff meetings focus on throughout the year to continue the learning for staff even after the course is complete. One of the courses is a 2-day course over the summer in which teachers design culturally responsive lesson plans and get warm and cold feedback from colleagues through a critical friends protocol.  All courses are followed by individualized coaching with one of the district's 4 instructional coaches.
