These activities are designed to provide increased focus on students with needs beyond those met by the core curriculum. Professional Development activities will include, but are not limited to: *LETRs Training- K-12 Special Education teachers will participate in year two of this training which is designed to increase effectiveness of core and supplementary reading instruction. LETRs provides teachers with the deep foundational knowl- edge needed to understand how students learn to read, write and spell. It also in- creases the ability to diagnose reading needs and determine practical strategies for increasing student achievement for every type of learner. *Literacy Coaching Initiative- Reading/Language Arts instructors in grades 6-8 and Literacy Coach will work together to address student needs. This training will allow increased intensity and focus on explicit research-based instructional strate- gies. .Authentic Intellectual Work (AIW)- This multi-year professional development initiative began during the 2011-2012 and wilt be expanded to include an increased number of teachers during the 2012-201.3 school year. Professional development in AIW provides a framework for teaching academic subjects that maximize expecta- tions of intellectual rigor for all students, increases student interest in academic work, supports teachers' taking time to teach for in-depth understanding rather than su- perficial coverageof material, provides a common conception of student intellectual work that promotes professional community among teachers of different grade lev- els and subjects, and most important, equips students to address the complex intel- lectual challenges of work, civic participation and managing personal affairs in the contemporary world. *Reading and Mathematics Curriculum Work- K-12 instructional staff will par- ticipate in staff development activities that target student achievement in Reading/ Language Arts and Mathematics.
