These offerings are available through InDistrict Services. For details, contact Gretchen Cipriano, CESA #11 ISPD Director, at [email protected].
CESA #11's Literacy Support Service is dedicated to secondary teachers who want their content to stick with students beyond a class period. We advocate for and provide engagement strategies, digital tools and research-based activities that can be applied immediately into your classroom. We strive to support you with activities that scaffold evaluation and critical thinking through
strong literacy integration. We are here to help you make this happen in your classrooms.
