Integrated Framework for Intermediate

Audience: Intermediate Teachers/Specialists

Presenter(s): Addrienne Sims and Christy Spielman

Length: 80 minutes

Level: Intermediate Conceptual

Session Description:

How do you get everything taught during a day? A quarter? A year? This session will illustrate the integration of content matter within a reading and writing framework. Using LA-CCSS, participants will learn how one PLC team implements units of study throughout the school year. Data is collected on an on-going basis, which guides instructional decisions for whole, small, and individual groupings. Theory will be connected to practice, as resources, videos, and technology applications are shared. Participants will be given the opportunity to develop a scope and sequence for the upcoming school year, leaving the session with a cohesive plan for integrating across the curriculum.
