that support the CELL, ExLL, and Second Chance programs.

ASSESSMENT & TEST-TAKING TRAINING
This one-day training has two purposes: 1) to focus on additional
practice with ExLL and Second Chance assessments and guide teachers
to find instructional applications based on these assessments, and
2) to help teachers implement test-taking strategies in the curriculum
in all content areas.
MINI-CONFERENCE (Grades PreK-12)
These mini-conferences are developed in response to specific requests
from trained school sites for additional on-site staff development.
CELL-ExLL INTERVENTION PROGRAM
The intervention program is to provide teachers with knowledge,
tools, and a structure to support them in the delivery of a highly
effective intervention program at their school.
ON-SITE VISITS (Grades PreK-12)
Foundation trainers are available to provide on-site visitations
of classrooms and demonstration coaching session. These visits are
meant to supplement rather than replace the work of the trained
for teachers that include sessions on elements of the framework,
theory classes, and opportunities for classroom observations. This
initiative is designed to complement the training provided during
School-Based Planning Team sessions and support the work of the
INSTRUCTIONAL AIDE TRAINING
training for classroom and special education aides supporting the
use of the frameworks. Both pullout and inclusion models can be
from a developer of the project (Swartz, Shook, Klein) concerning
implementation of the CELL, ExLL, Second Chance framework at either
a school site or districtwide. The visitor will observe classrooms
with the building administrator and Literacy Coordinator(s) to discuss
current and future implementation strategies.
