We are thrilled to announce that our Wolfpack WORKS, online learning modules have just been released on CANVAS for all teachers across North Carolina to access!
Educators can sign up through NCEES at: https://ncees.homebase.ncpublicschools.gov/ia/empari/learning2/course/viewCourseSearch?courseId=14987
We hope everyone is doing well and taking care during this time! There is a tremendous shift towards using a variety of online platforms right now. The modules we have created would be great for any teacher that is interested to learn more about Wolfpack WORKS evidence-based, K-2 literacy instructional practices. You can also earn 3 CEU credits for completing all of the modules.
Wolfpack WORKS modules were designed to support beginning, Grades K-2, North Carolina educators with implementing literacy instructional practices in the classroom. These modules are being provided to you through the Wolfpack WORKS (Ways to Optimize Reading/Writing for Kids Statewide) initiative. The goal of the initiative is to implement effective classroom literacy instruction in high-need classrooms, creating a positive impact on teachers’ current and future students’ literacy learning opportunities.
There are a total of 10 learning modules. Each module has:
- An Introduction video
- An explanation of the literacy instructional practice and its indicators
- Seeing the practice in action
- Hearing from experts
- An opportunity to reflect
- Additional resources
- Comprehension check
*Each module takes approximately 3 hours to complete
The literacy instructional practices connect to and build upon one another. All practices emphasize the importance of enhancing students’ oral language development, teaching in culturally relevant and culturally responsive ways, the importance of explicit instruction, engaging students actively in their learning, and providing optimal support for all students in their literacy growth and development.
We would like to give a huge thank you to the digital learning team at the Friday Institute for the help they provided in developing and programming the modules.
