Five-day institutes are designed to be a powerful introduction to EL Education for educators new to our partner schools. In each institute, participants engage as “students” in a slice of content- and literacy-rich learning. They experience the practices that characterize high-achieving, engaging classrooms throughout our school network. The practices focus on developing a strong classroom culture, engaging students in daily assessment, and using effective instructional practices (e.g., building background knowledge, strategies for helping students read closely, vocabulary work, numeracy, fieldwork, using experts, and scaffolding to create high-quality work). The institute closes by unpacking the experience in teacher hat so participants can transfer their learning over to their own context.

Management in the Active Classroom serves as the anchor for the classroom management strategies and protocols to engage and support elementary students.

Please note: These 5-day institutes are not designed to be an introduction to the EL Education Language Arts Curriculum. For those seeking to learn more about how the curriculum was designed or seeking support with its implementation, please visit

Participants will receive a certificate for 32 hours of professional learning.
