Closing literacy gaps 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 close literacy gaps though rigorous, relevant, twenty-first-century literacy. Through institutes, demonstration lessons and collaborative, job-embedded professional learning, Tonya builds teacher capacity to ensure all students can 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 always customizes professional learning so that it integrates seamlessly with local priorities, pedagogy, resources, and goals. Contact her today for a free consultation.
