Over the last two years, the SEED team has worked diligently to provide meaningful professional development opportunities for teachers across the Northwestern Colorado BOCES region. This learning ranges from semester long courses, to a much lesser commitment of a few hours in the the SEED PAK, where users can read, watch or otherwise engage in open-source, high quality resources.

Colorado Teacher Quality Standard II, Element D sets the expectation that “Teachers adapt their teaching for the benefit of all students, including those with special needs, across the range of ability levels.” This semester a cohort of teachers working in northwest Colorado districts are exploring ways to increase their expertise in this area by participating in the Spring 2017 SEED Teacher Learning Community: Engaging All Students In Learning.

As part of the Increasing Achievement and Growth grant, NW BOCES recorded a series of webinars by literacy experts from around the country. When the series is finished, there will be 10 total webinars designed to help teachers with literacy instruction. Today, the newest webinar is available in the SEED PAK. In this webinar, Dr. Danielle Thompson gives the basics of phonological awareness. It is a great review or introduction for teachers. Check it out today!
