Feedback form is now closed.
Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District developed and implemented a new Professional Development (PD) model to support our elementary teachers' delivery of exceptional designated ELD using newly adopted Benchmark Advance instructional materials. The PD model consists of teachers engaging in professional learning around the main tenants of the ELA/ELD Framework; co-constructing lessons using the newly adopted materials; observing/debriefing model lessons; collaborative lesson planning; and, ongoing coaching. The PD and coaching are co-facilitated by a teacher leader and district level administrator.
