Wednesday, November 29 | 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM | Colorado League of Charter Schools Training Center, 4201 E. Yale Avenue., Denver


Cost: $500 for the two full-day PD sessions and on-site Instructional Coaching

Target Audience: Teachers in years 1-3 of teaching, Interventionists who teach larger groups of students, and anyone who is looking to improve their instructional practices in the classroom


Description: In this series of professional development sessions (one includes an on-site observation and instructional coaching segment), participants will engage in a variety of effective instructional strategies to practice and then implement in the classroom. Research states that instructional strategies need to be practiced over 20 times in order to become an automatic part of instructional practice. This workshop provides opportunities for practice, feedback and mentorship, planning and development of teaching routines, on-going support, and a risk-taking learning environment that supports teachers with a growth mindset. 

Novice Teachers 101 (Wednesday, September 20)

Novice teachers will begin to create an action plan for their own on-going learning. Teachers will bring school-based curriculum to embed instructional strategies into their everyday lesson plans. Teachers will also engage in a variety of interactive instructional strategies that they plan, practice and implement in their classroom. Finally, novice teachers will develop, practice, and create a plan for teaching routines to take place with consistency in their classroom until the next session. Lunch will be provided.   


Novice Teachers 102: On-Site Observation and Feedback Sessions (Dates TBD)
This is the second portion of this series and will take place on-site at the school or through the participant video-taping an instructional lesson. Novice teachers will receive time during this week to be observed and receive quality feedback on the instructional strategies they have been implementing in the classroom. If the on-site observation is not an option for any reason, the participant will be asked to video a lesson and send it for electronic feedback. This part of the training is highly recommended, but optional for the participant. 


Novice Teachers 103 (Wednesday, November 29)
Participants will reflect and engage in new effective instructional strategies, self-assess their instruction and implementation plan, spend time collaborating with other novice teachers on the development of instructional rituals, practice, and develop partnerships beyond these specific sessions. Participants will develop their final steps of implementation that will support their instruction through the end of the year and set goals for the following year to continue to develop their instructional practices. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. 

Registration: Deadline: Friday, September 15. Event is contingent on at least 5 registrants. 

Cancellation Policy: Cancellations made on or before the registration deadline will be refunded in full. Unfortunately, cancellations made after the registration deadline will not be refunded.
