All teachers, across ELA and content areas, need to implement the ELA CCSS effectively using a common sense approach. The key to this approach is simple: Instruction! Instruction! Instruction! This two-day, hands-on Academy will engage educators in an intense focus on research-based ELA instructional practices to successfully implement the rigors of text complexity, evidence-based writing, and vocabulary development in their ELA and content area classrooms. Specifically, this Academy dives into what these practices look like and how to build them into the curriculum to maximize student engagement and achievement. Educators will then utilize this knowledge to develop CCSS lesson plans and assessment tasks for immediate use in their ELA or content area classroom. Whether you are just beginning the CCSS journey or you’re well on your way toward CCSS student achievement, our personalized approach to learning will provide you with valuable expertise, resources, and planning time necessary to continue moving forward with CCSS implementation in your classroom, school, or district.

After the 14-day timeframe, you are ineligible for a refund, but you may send a replacement in your place, with registration confirmation or written authorization from you and details of the replacement sent to Discovery Education by email. For all cancellations, there is a $50 processing fee per Academy. E-mail: Discovery_Education@ordering.com.

Participants are responsible for their own transportation, meals, and lodging. (Discovery Education provides coffee, pastries, and tea each morning as well as a catered lunch for the first day of the Academy. Participants are responsible for their own lunches and dinners.)
Discovery’s Commitment to Quality
We are committed to the development of high quality teachers and administrators. We often conduct our own research to inform our practice and ensure we are meeting the needs of our participants. Participants may be asked to complete pre- and post-surveys or respond to questionnaires. There are often photos taken during sessions to use as promotional materials. By registering for the Academy, you grant Discovery Education the right to take photographs and/or record video and audio of you in connection with the Academy. You agree that Discovery Education owns any and all rights to such materials and may use the materials for any lawful purpose, including publicity and advertising.
When space is available and at Discovery Education’s discretion, you may register on-site for an additional $25 fee. The professional development opportunities may sell out. Do not depend on registering on-site. Please contact Discovery Education for availability. On-site registration begins at 8:00 a.m. and will close at 8:30 a.m., when the sessions begin.
