Professional Learning Events

Offered by the Disciplinary Literacy Task Force

The 6-12 Disciplinary Literacy Task Force is proud to announce learning opportunities for secondary English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Career Tech, Visual/Performing Arts, and World Languages teachers, as well as building leaders, instructional coaches, and educators at higher education institutions. These opportunities have been designed with flexibility and relevancy in mind.

MiELA Conference: Disciplinary Literacy Session

During the two-day Institute, participants will explore big ideas around improving literacy for adolescents and deepen understanding of disciplinary literacy. In addition to participating in hands-on experiences that support inquiry, participants will use the Essential Practices for Disciplinary Literacy Instruction in the Secondary Classroom (Grades 6-12) to frame their thinking about literacy within their discipline. Teachers, leaders, and coaches from all disciplines are encouraged to attend and join the statewide conversation about disciplinary literacy.

Disciplinary Literacy for Secondary Leaders


If we have learned anything about learning this school year, it is that getting (and keeping) kids engaged is our biggest hurdle. As a secondary administrator, how can you support your teachers in moving toward more inherently motivating, academically rigorous learning experiences? The Michigan Association of Intermediate School Administrators (MAISA), General Education Leadership Network (GELN) and Michigan Association of Secondary School Principals (MASSP) are proud to announce a learning series built for secondary administrators looking to increase student motivation and engagement, as well as literacy skills, across all content areas. This brand new series has been designed with today's unique realities in mind--changed schedules, blended learning, potential interruptions to learning, and increased use of technology.
