SAVE THE DATE!!!
October 4-5, 2016
UCLA Luskin Conference Center
A multi-disciplinary forum for K-12 educators to engage in professional learning and collaborative
leadership focused on student learning and literacy
Presented by the CA Subject Matter Project
• Registration deadline is September 15, 2016 •
We know that CSMP-informed teachers focus on equity and excellence, college and career readiness, and engagement and participation for all of their students. The CA Writing Project wants every student across California to learn with and from just as many skilled, experienced, dedicated teachers, those who are also passionate teacher leaders with one or more of the California Subject Matter Projects. We are inviting and encouraging you to urge your school or district leaders to participate in CSMP’s LeadLearn2016 Forum!
LeadLearn2016 will also introduce many teachers and administrators to CSMP as a leadership development community, one you know well because you have open access to and support from your local Writing Project, your professional home for the lifetime of your career as an educator. LeadLearn2016 is an opportunity to help administrators and teachers see what is possible for students if CSMP teacher leaders are the critical mass at a school or in a district.
There is plenty of state funding to support professional learning and leadership development that is allocated directly through block grants to schools/districts. Part of what LeadLearn2016 will focus on is how teachers, schools, and districts can make effective use of this funding to support teachers across disciplines, across courses, across languages, across ability and disability so that everyone can share responsibility for improving teaching and learning (and writing, of course).
Attached you will find a support letter from Tom Torlakson, California State Superintendent of Public Instruction. Also attached is an info-flyer about the forum. The only missing but important detail on the flyer is that meals are included in the registration cost. Additional program, location, and lodging information can be found here: (http://www.leadlearn2016.com/agenda/)
We hope that you will tap in to available funding to participate in LeadLearn2016 in October!@LeadLearn2016
