Teachers gear up for summer school at Everyday ExcELLence Expo

The last day of the regular academic year is right around the corner, and that means summer school is not far behind.

To help teachers get ready to deliver concentrated doses of reading instruction, HISD’s Professional Support & Development and Multilingual Programs co-hosted an Everyday ExcELLence Expo on May 18.

More than HISD 200 teachers in grades 3–12 gathered at Hartman Middle School for the mini-conference, where they practiced Everyday ExcELLence literacy routines and shared their approaches to developing language and literacy, particularly for English Language Learners (ELLs). They also attended a series of teacher-led sessions that highlighted successful implementations of sheltered instruction practices and Everyday ExcELLence literacy routines as part of an end-of-year expo.

Teachers left the event with ideas and instructional materials to help them bring the eight excELLence literacy routines to life during summer school and the upcoming academic year.
