This is the same training that was offered in Summer 2014. The purpose of this professional development

will be to train K-8 teachers in the use of the Indiana High Ability Language Arts units. The training

will begin with an overview of the following:

The elements of appropriately differentiated high ability language arts curriculum

The curriculum structure of the units

The purpose of the teaching models within the units

The use of pre/post assessments to measure student growth associated with the units.


Teachers will then participate in a series of activities designed to learn the critical and creative thinking models incorporated within the units. The presenters will share examples taken from the collection ofunits to demonstrate the inclusion of the elements of good curriculum, the use of models, and the articulation

through the grade levels. During the remainder of the day, two unit authors will be onsite to assist teachers with specific questions they may have in planning and teaching their particular units.


Hand-outs will be provided with some sample table copies of the units. If you wish to have your own vey to gain access to the units: http://form.jotform.co/form/32165696183865 You may bring a laptop with a unit downloaded and/or a print copy.
