The Oklahoma State Department of Education has charged Reac3h Instructional Coaches to bring specific professional development sessions for free to their regions over subjects such as Reading Sufficiency Act (RSA) and the 5 components of literacy (Phonological Awareness, Phonics, Vocabulary, Comprehension & Fluency). Our focus is on grades K – 3, but the above topics can apply to all grades depending on your student population.
To best facilitate the delivery of these PD’s I have secured a regular venue in Guymon, the OPSU Guymon Classroom, located at 304 Northwest 5th Street. ALL PANHANDLE EDUCATORS are invited to attend any of the professional developments I have scheduled. In looking at the schedule linked above you’ll notice that there are dates set for the year but only topics through December. I’d like to wait to assign subjects past December until closer to those dates. You can also visit http://www.eventbright.ca/org/3716513753 (also linked at the bottom of all emails from me) for a complete listing of offered professional development along with descriptions and times. If you wish to attend a session at the classroom in Guymon you must register through the above link. Each session has an orange “attend” button. If you click on this button it will take you to the registration page for that session. When registering make sure you use a contact email that you regularly check in case I have an emergency and have to cancel a session.
These sessions will also be available over ITV. If your site would like to set up a link to participate in any of the scheduled sessions please let me know several days in advance to allow me to set that up for you.
This does not mean that I am not available to do professional development for your site/district. If you have a specific need you can contact me to schedule my visiting your site/district.
Hope to see you all at a multi-district PD this year!
