This program is designed for the participants to see the whole school community through its individual parts.
Contemporary schooling is a working model of the storied “it takes a village” concept. Countless moving parts with individual managers (as well as individual management styles) are required to come together in service of a shared set of goals. TU’s Effective Schools program will introduce concepts of managed integration, in order that teachers work both within their space, and within the big picture to improve the overall educational environment.

CTAV 636 – Building Academic Language – Course Date: July 9 – August 31

With the adoption of college and career standards, all students need support developing their understanding and use of language within an academic context. As students progress through school, subject matter becomes more complex and students must use language in more sophisticated ways to argue, to evaluate evidence, to analyze complex texts, to develop their own complex texts, and to engage academic discussions. This course is designed to equip K-12 teachers with the knowledge, skills, and strategies required to help their students grasp language principles and develop the academic language skills they need to reach their highest levels of academic achievement across all grade bands and content areas. Building Academic Language introduces teachers to the features and functions of academic language, strategies and activities for supporting the use of academic language, techniques for modeling academic language, and ideas for lesson planning and assessment that support academic language development.

Course CTAV 635 – Aiding Students with Learning Disabilities – Course Date: September 4 – October 26
