Title: Digging Deeper into the ELA Standards with Your Teachers
In this session, we will go over some strategies to help your teachers really dig deep into the ELA standards. Teaching ELA is a huge task, so narrowing down exactly what needs to be taught and on what level is so important. The goals of this session will be for you to go back and guide your teachers in deconstructing their standards, looking at vertical alignment, and feeling like true masters of their standards. You will get strategies and tools that you can take back immediately to start digging deep into those standards.
