This session is blended with both asynchronous and synchronous components. There are 6 hours of asynchronous work and a 2 hour synchronous session that will be held on August 18th from 10:30am-12:30pm.

In this primer, we will cover the knowledge that all teachers of reading should know in the areas of background knowledge, vocabulary, language structures, verbal reasoning, and literacy knowledge. It will provide you with a deeper understanding of the "what" and the "why" of these five components that, when combined, support students in the acquisition of language comprehension. When we come together in the synchronous session, we will look at "how" to take this knowledge into the classroom. Please make sure to have the asynchronous work completed prior to our synchronous session.

Participants from Montgomery County nonpublic schools may be able to attend with funding. Please contact Lisa Moore at lmoore@mciu.org to verify eligibility.

Analysis: TDA Basics
This is a blended session with both synchronous and asynchronous components. There are 3 hours of asynchronous work and there will be a 3 hour synchronous meeting on August 17th from 8:00am-11:00am.

This module is for teachers in tested grades to develop or firm up their foundational understanding of the skills that are taught in the area of analysis and how these skills are assessed on the PSSA with a TDA command. At the end of this module, participants will be able to define text-dependent analysis, understand why analysis matters, identify the components of a TDA command in the PSSA, and identify the skills needed for analysis.

This is a hybrid of asynchronous and synchronous learning with IU Project Consultants. Participants should complete the asynchronous work prior to the Zoom session on August 17th. The Zoom session will be interactive and participants will engage in activities that can be transferred into their instructional planning and practice.

CVI-The Impact of a Brain Based Visual Impairment on Learning
This is a self paced course with rolling enrollment open until September 6th.

The brain is just as important as the eyes when it comes to seeing. Many vision problems are caused by areas of the brain that are needed for sight not working properly and cannot be resolved by wearing glasses. Until recently, a brain-related visual impairment was thought to be rare. According to new research, on average, every class of 30 children would have one or two children with at least one brain-related visual problem. In this course, you will learn about Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI) and gain a deeper understanding of its impact on learning. You will explore strategies to reduce barriers for learners, especially those with brain-based visual impairments.

Facilitating Meaningful Mathematics Discourse
This is a self paced course with rolling open enrollment available until September 6th.

Effective teaching of mathematics facilitates discourse among students to build shared understanding of mathematical ideas by analyzing and comparing student approaches and arguments and by posing purposeful questions to assess and advance students' reasoning and sense making about important mathematical ideas and relationships. Participants will explore the necessary components for a culture of discourse in a mathematics classroom as well as the teacher and student behaviors necessary for successful implementation of classroom discourse.

Assessment plays an integral role in all classrooms, schools, and systems. In this asynchronous course, designed for self-paced learning, participants will explore three main assessment categories: assessment for learning, assessment of learning, and assessment as learning. Video content, embedded articles and interactive tasks are organized to promote reflection on current practices and self-assessment to drive further learning into the additional assessment courses. This offering is designed to serve as a foundational course for the other assessment courses available at the MCIU. While not required as a prerequisite for these other courses, it is highly recommended to navigate through this course first.
