EL Collaborative

Open to all educators, these five sessions are designed as a collaborative and networking opportunity for specialists, teachers and principals working with English Learners.  Held throughout the school year, these sessions will present a series of relevant EL topics with discussions highlighting instructional activities, presentations and readings.  Current research and practices, state updates and local initiatives will also be part of the collaborative.  Participants will learn from one another and take away new knowledge and skills.  Topics and activities can be shared at school sites informally or at staff meetings, providing structure and strategies for addressing the academic needs of English learners.  Attendees are encouraged to contribute and share ideas for all topics.

 

2012-13 Scheduled Dates:  September 11, October 8, November 29, January 30, and April 3.  All sessions held at MCOE and begin at 9:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Teaching American History Project 2010-2013

About the Project ~ Teaching American History (TAH) is a three-year grant funded by the United States Department of Education and awarded to the Mendocino County Office of Education. This project is designed to develop and deliver a three-year program of quality professional development for teachers in the content and teaching of traditional U.S. History targeted at 4th and 5th grades but also open to other teachers. TAH Mendocino, Lake, and Sonoma is a collaborative effort among the Mendocino County Office of Education, Sonoma State University, and school districts within Mendocino, Lake, and Northern Sonoma Counties (Cloverdale, Windsor, Piner-Olivet, and Santa Rosa City Schools). The Mendocino Historical Society and the Grace Hudson Museum are also part of this collaboration. As a result of participation in the grant, teachers will be able to help students more effectively meet high academic standards in American History. The program will support teams of teachers in summer institutes, establish and maintain professional networks focused on teaching standards based American History. Also, teachers will learn how to develop lesson plans which will integrate literacy strategies, support English language learners and use technology to access primary sources.

The project goals are to provide training and opportunities for project participants to acquire understanding and expertise in effectively developing standards-based American History lessons. Other project goals include (1) to increase traditional American History content knowledge; (2) to improve the quality of curriculum and instruction of traditional American History as a separate academic subject; and (3) to improve student knowledge and understanding of American History. There will be a strong regional focus to encourage teachers to become familiar with local resources and to work closely with historical associations and museums in identifying resources that illustrate local participation in the larger national historic movements. The grant begins this year with a leadership program for teacher leaders and, beginning in the fall, a lecture series open to all K-12 teachers as well as community members.
