This year, ESE is pleased to announce that the ongoing Urban Literacy Leaders Network will focus on supports for educators to design and implement complex and engaging student tasks/assignments. The Network will use the Four Domains of the Literacy Assignment Analysis Framework and corresponding indicators created by The Education Trust to guide its work throughout the year. In the first meeting, participants will be introduced to the framework. Each subsequent meeting will focus on one of the four domains of the framework: (1) alignment to standards, (2) centrality of texts, (3) cognitive challenge, and (4) motivation and engagement. Participants will collaboratively review tasks/assignments and samples of student work in an effort to develop new strategies for improving the quality of instruction in their districts.
Our first meeting will be held next Thursday, October 26, 2017 in Devens at the Devens Commons at the Hilton Garden Inn (59 Andrews Parkway) from 9:00 - 12:00pm. To register please click on the following link.
