Literacy Workshop Trains Teachers to Lead Instruction

Professional Learning

December 3, 2015

CEI and the national LDC organization recently hosted a professional learning workshop for Colorado educators to become trained LDC jurors.

“LDC partners and their teachers and coaches deepened their understanding of instructional design as they develop their own local jurying systems and enlist more educators to train and qualify to become LDC certified,” said Professional Learning content specialist Jayla Watje. “Ultimately, we want to build a library of exemplary modules that have been written and juried by Colorado teachers for Colorado students.”

LDC jurying allows teachers and coaches to create, review, and revise literacy modules written by other teachers. Local LDC school districts include Adams 12 Five Star Schools, Denver Public Schools, Jeffco Public Schools, and Thompson School District in Loveland. LDC is expanding across the United States and CEI has trained more than 2,500 Colorado educators in 25 school districts.
