A Personalized Approach to PD that Closes Achievement Gaps
ExcEL Texas Now does PD differently. Instead of lengthy full-day or after-school professional development workshops that often result in little or no change in professional practice, ExcEL Texas Now uses a cohort model approach to provide teachers with real-time coaching and feedback.
Quality coaching and feedback is all about modeling macro- and micro-adjustments to current instructional delivery with the ELL Levers.
These real-time adjustments focus on a specific ELL Lever that can elevate student engagement and cognitive complexity while simultaneously supporting language acquisition. As Paul Bambrick-Santoyo, author of Get Better Faster writes, “going into immense depth on one skill at a time, each building on the last, is precisely what makes…coaching effective.
Using teacher cohorts, ExcEL Texas Now promotes best practices research with the ELL Levers and provides daily support for English learners with integrated proficiency connections.
