Virtual Professional Learning Workshops Series

Launching Your Collaborative Literacy or SIPPS Implementation

Center for the Collaborative Classroom is pleased to announce a new way to launch and sustain your professional learning with us.

In July and August 2020, we will offer three series of live, virtual, highly interactive professional learning workshops. Each series focuses on a specific Collaborative Classroom curriculum – Collaborative Literacy or SIPPS – and is designed to provide you with the essentials for strong implementation.

Series 1: Launching Collaborative Literacy: The Essentials for a Strong K–2 Implementation

This five-part series of virtual professional learning workshops focuses on the essentials to launch a strong Collaborative Literacy implementation in grades K–2. We will feature the pedagogy and design of the instruction in Making Meaning, Being a Reader, and Being a Writer. In each session, we will focus on an aspect of instruction and consider the essentials of that aspect, including unit design, lesson structure, planning, and professional learning support. Participants will explore the intention of early instruction and will complete the series ready to begin teaching Collaborative Literacy lessons.

Series 2: Launching Collaborative Literacy: The Essentials for a Strong Grades 3–6 Implementation

This four-part series of professional learning workshops focuses on the essentials to launch a strong Collaborative Literacy implementation in grades 3–6. We will feature the pedagogy and design of the instruction in Making Meaning and Being a Writer. In each session, we will focus on an aspect of instruction and consider the essentials of that aspect including unit design, lesson structure, planning, and professional learning support. Participants will complete the series ready to begin teaching Collaborative Literacy lessons.

Series 3: Supporting a Strong SIPPS Implementation: The Essentials for Teachers of SIPPS

This five-part series of professional learning workshops focuses on the essentials to support a strong SIPPS implementation. We will feature unique aspects of each SIPPS level, prepare to use the Placement Assessment to form groups, gain an understanding of the lesson structure and instructional routines, learn how to make instructional decisions to accelerate student learning, and prepare to teach SIPPS effectively in a remote setting.

In each series, participants will:

  • Engage in learning with two facilitators, via a live Zoom Meeting format
  • Interact with fellow participants from across the country in whole-group discussions, small-group (breakout rooms) activities, and individual reflection
  • Delve into Collaborative Classroom curriculum materials via interactive, hands-on activities
  • Explore an essential aspect of instruction during each session, including the instructional design and lesson structure, and planning and professional learning support
  • Focus on early instruction and prepare to engage in Collaborative Literacy or SIPPS instruction

Series Fee: $99 per participant. (Payment via credit card only, please)

Space is limited to ensure the quality of our learning.  

Each series is designed to provide live, interactive, and hands-on experiences. These series will not be recorded.

Please be prepared to engage in pre-work, have program materials in hand, and actively use the Zoom Meeting platform for learning, collaboration, and collegial conversations.

Who Should Register: Educators and leaders who are preparing to launch a new Collaborative Literacy or SIPPS implementation, or those who are seeking to reinvigorate a current implementation. District- or school-based teams are recommended.
