Teacher Leadership Invitational

Each year teachers from San Diego are invited to be a part of the Teacher Leadership Invitational Professional Development Series.

The purpose of our quarterly Teacher Leader Invitationals is to build the leadership capacity of teachers throughout the San Diego region. Our Invitational leadership institutes provide participants with opportunities to deepen their content and pedagogical knowledge about reading instruction, enhance comprehension and reading interest in their students, and develop effective use of content-area texts in their classrooms. The institutes also provide opportunities for participants to develop their presentation and coaching skills.

Each year, our Teacher Leadership Invitational explores a topic of high-interest through a series of interactive study sessions and workshops. Past Invitationals have focused on the following topics and activities:

  • Investigating the unique needs of Diverse Learners (Students with Dyslexia, Spanish-Speaking English Learners, and Struggling Readers)
  • Integrating technology and literacy instruction through Hyperdocs and Multi-Media Text Sets
  • Studying research, assessment, standards, policy, practice and pedagogy regarding Literacy,  Language, and English Language Development
  • Refining systems for grade-level and cross grade-level articulation
  • Exploring the CA ELA/ELD Framework and discussing case studies of Integrated and Designated ELD
  • Strengthening facilitation, coaching, and presentation skills for teacher leaders
  • Refining the team meeting and data analysis process
