Program Description

This professional development sequence supports in- service educators to develop foundational understandings of language acquisition, linguistically and culturally responsive pedagogies, and instructional and assessment strategies in literacy and across content areas to support CLD students in classrooms and schools. As a regional provider in Southwestern Colorado, Fort Lewis College has designed this professional development to support the needs of the local rural schools and districts by providing teachers with a rich conceptual foundation along with practical tools to implement in the classroom.
