NMSI’S LAYING THE FOUNDATION (LTF) TRAINING
 
Over the past five years, A+ College Ready has convened teams of Alabama teachers who built 16 LTF - infused curricula  that are aligned with Alabama’s college and career ready standards.  LTF training will introduce the lessons, labs, and teaching strategies that make up course specific content  for  the subject listed below.   Teachers should select  training specific to the course they teach.  Those who have received a year of course specific training should elect to attend Year Two training this summer.

A+ COLLEGE READY’S SOCIAL STUDIES AND CIVICS TRAINING (SSC3)
 
A+ College Ready will also offer foundational and skills-based social studies training for grades 6-10 teachers for the first time this summer.   The training consists of 4 days of hands-on and interactive professional development in which teachers are provided best practices and skill-based teaching strategies that focus on the 3 critical aspects of any social studies course:
 
·         Content Acquisition Skills- strategies that focus on reading and comprehending primary and secondary resources, charts, graphs, tables, maps, and technological resources
 
·         Content Application Skills- strategies that focus on applying the content in multiple ways for multiple purposes including comparison, differentiation, evaluation, synthesis, application, inferences, contextualization, classifying,  and change over time
 
·         Content Exposition Skills- strategies that focus on student expository work including narrative  and persuasive writing
 
This training will provide a  “tool kit” of lessons and practices, along with access to other resources that teachers can immediately insert into the following social studies classes:
 
United States Studies: The Industrial Revolution to the Present
Geography
Civics
World History to 1500
World History: 1500 to Present   
United States History I: Beginnings to Industrial Revolution
United States History II: The Industrial Revolution to the Present
United States Government

This training is made possible because of A+ College Ready's Partnership with the ALSDE giving Alabama teachers access to excellent teacher-designed curricular materials that promote rigor, critical thinking, and essential reading and writing skills.
