April 2017 marks the expansion of LDC's Coach Certification program. Up to this date, coach certification was limited to large groups, cohorts, and partnership organizations. While LDC will continue to work with these partners, state agencies, and LEAs, the expansion of this offering comes as a response to the feedback from educators across the country.
LDC’s Executive Director Chad Vignola is presenting alongside Honey Gubuan, teacher and Social Studies Chair at East Side Union High School in California, at the Carnegie Foundation 2017 Summit on Improvement in Education. This Summit, an outstanding education and networking event, is taking place in San Francisco, CA, on March 27-29, 2017.
The March issue of the LDC i3 newsletter focuses on innovative professional learning practices at LAUSD participating schools. Here are some highlights from some of the coaches, project liaisons, and teachers in Los Angeles.
LDC is excited to announce a brand new offering: Task Workshops! In these interactive sessions, LDC thought partners will talk through a review of a task. Come learn and practice providing feedback with other coaches and teachers from across the country!
Task Workshop Sessions will be held on the first and third Mondays of every month and are free to join!
