TL3 Training

In June, 2014, the Teacher-Librarian Common Core Cadre (TLC3) will hold eight free, trainings at sites around the state. These are the TLC3 Day Camps that were offered last August as well.

If you did not have the opportunity to attend last summer, please consider it for this year. The Day Camps received rave reviews from participants. If you did attend, and know other teacher-librarians who may be interested, please pass the word. The TLC3 Project is not limited to WLMA members only.

Registration for these trainings will be open at noon on Thursday, June 5.

The TLC3 Project will provide resources and professional development for teacher-librarians to serve as building and district leaders for the successful implementation of Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts (ELA).

The training will empower teacher-librarians to provide leadership in CCSS implementation by focusing on reading for information, understanding text complexity, and developing research skills.

While TLC3 training will target K-12 teacher-librarians, resources and professional development tools will be available to all educators and school administrators, public librarians, and communities engaged with Common Core implementation.

During this *day-long training, attendees will participate in interactive, take-away activities that can be implemented in schools and districts. Additionally, participants will have access to support materials.

Six (6) clock hours will be offered through OSPI at no cost.  Forms will be available at the training sites. Please bring your own lunch.  Further information will be sent out a week before the sessions.

*Please be considerate of the trainers’ time and the cost of providing these trainings, as well as the colleague who may not get a spot if the session is full.
