• Our approach to professional learning and providing resources for teachers...

    Leyden's instructional coaches collaborate to provide support for teaching and learning in a manner that is specific to each discipline. We support teachers as they experiment with teaching methods, seamlessly integrate technology into their instruction, apprentice students to the disciplines via discipline-specific literacy strategies, and engage in action research.

    • Instructional Groups

      • Introduce teachers to instructional strategies and general tools (tech and literacy) to foster student learning and engagement
      • Foster a collaborative and open culture for sharing
    • Disciplinary Literacy Group
      • Foster a discipline-specific approach to instruction to increase student confidence, competence, and engagement in the disciplines
