General Education

Every Child, Every Classroom, Every Day

Working with local principals, and enlisting regional and statewide partners, COOR ISD (Crawford, Ogemaw, Oscoda & Roscommon counties) coordinates and offers professional learning opportunities to support our teachers and administrators. Our mission is to ensure ALL students achieve success by supporting the implementation of high quality curriculum, instruction, and assessment.

While enhancing instructional knowledge and new research supported strategies intentionally frame our offerings, the heart of each workshop is found in the opportunity for professional educators to gather around a common topic. By networking together, teachers learn from and offer support to one another while they courageously implement new learning to increase student achievement.

      Literacy may not be one of the letters in STEM, but it is essential to doing and learning science. Join us for an interactive day of learning and planning to integrate science throughout their instructional day. Teachers will gain best practices for engaging students through purposeful read alouds, integrating vocabulary, evaluating texts, facilitating STEM challenges, and more through the lens of the Essential Instructional Practices in Early Literacy and NGSS. Teacher takeaways include a trade book and challenge activity, a protocol for text evaluation, time to plan for their next unit, connecting with colleagues, and endless resources at their fingertips. Lunch will be provided by COOR.
      Facilitated by Linnea Gibson, NMLC Science Consultant & Annie Spear, COOR ISD Early Literacy Coach
