Tier I is a self-paced option. Participants will be provided with a Professional Development Guide and will work through the series at their own pace.
Tier II is also self-paced but is conducted within a Professional Learning Community (PLC) with a designated facilitator. The facilitators will use the professional learning guide to lead participants through the series using: targeted questions, debriefing sessions, and collaborative conversations to encourage reflection and growth. Participants will also work to create a plan for implementing the research-based strategies highlighted in the sessions.
Tier III is an on-site option. Participants will engage with literacy experts in a live, interactive webinar followed by a face-to-face collaborative session with a designated facilitator. Similar to Tier II, facilitators will use the professional learning guide to debrief webinar content, facilitate small group work, and provide opportunities for participants to collaborate as they create plans for implementing research-based strategies highlighted in the sessions.
