ARC Literacy Planning 101
Limited Capacity seats available

Ensuring that all students have the opportunity to read complex texts, engage in grade appropriate tasks, and develop academic language can help accelerate their learning to close the opportunity gap. In this session, we will unpack the American Reading Company (ARC) Summer Semester Curriculum used during Summer Academy. We will also see an adapted full week instructional plan of ARC to identify and implement best practices for supporting our struggling readers and ELs. Participants will be able to plan for their first week of core instruction.

Going Deep With PERMS
Limited Capacity seats available

This session will help teachers develop understanding of what makes Dedicated ELD instruction distinct from content-area instruction, most notably in the following 5 areas (PERMS): Portability, Explicit Language Instruction, Rigor, Metalinguistic Awareness, and 50% Student Talk. Teachers will be able to see what effective execution of each element looks like in order to plan for successful implementation of the Summer Academy ELD curriculum. Teachers will also be provided with the opportunity to practice administering the NEW Oral Language Assessment that will be used in Summer Academy.

Brain Gym Overview
Limited Capacity full

Breaks are important for students’ learning! In this session, we will learn about brain gym, which is a series of activities designed to work out students’ brains. The purpose of these brain gym breaks is to refocus students for learning, increase physical coordination, and to connect left-brain and right-brain by crossing midline. New to Summer Academy teachers will receive a short PD that shows them some brain gym routines.
