Creating equal opportunity is about more than raising test scores of subgroups. It calls for us to engage ELs, students of color, and students in poverty in rigorous, relevant learning to excel as leaders and innovators in a global world.
Bring Tonya to your district to empower teachers with practical tools to empower linguistically and culturally diverse students through rigorous, relevant, twenty-first-century literacy. Tonya builds teacher capacity to ensure all students excel with:
Engaging in collaborative academic conversations
Reading complex texts closely
Making and justifying claims with evidence
Writing from texts to impact real audiences
Using technology to collaborate, research, create, revise, and publish
Building academic language for cross-disciplinary success
Tonya customizes professional learning for each district so that it integrates seamlessly with local priorities, pedagogy, resources, and goals. Contact her today for a free consultation.
