PD offered in May titled Part 5: Science of Reading Classroom: Internalizing, Annotating, and Elevating HQIM

The Mississippi Department of Education’s Office of Elementary Education, Division of Literacy is inviting district administrators, principals, lead teachers, and instructional coaches (K-5) to attend a one-day, in-person professional development training titled Part 5: Science of Reading Classroom: Internalizing, Annotating, and Elevating HQIM Parts one – four of the High-Quality Instructional Materials (HQIM) Series guided district leaders through the implementation process of HQIM, assessment and writing, and small group instruction. As we guide leaders in the shift from lesson planning to lesson preparation, it is important to understand the importance and process of effective lesson preparation. This professional development will explore the process of internalization in preparation for teaching a unit, the science behind lesson preparation versus lesson planning, and opportunities to practice internalizing a unit within the district’s HQIM.
