New Advanced Lexile Professional Development Workshop

Take your Lexile Professional Development to the next level! We are excited to announce our newest Lexile workshop, The Lexile Framework in Action: Making Curriculum Content Accessible to ALL Students.

This full-day, advanced workshop will guide curriculum coaches, content specialists, classroom teachers and media specialists in the development of units of targeted text and resources. Our facilitator will lead the group in using resources already in place to support instruction that will target all learners. Current state standards, district curriculum pacing guides and recent student Lexile® measures will provide the foundation for developing customized lesson plans.

We also offer numerous other Lexile workshop options including half- and full-day introductory sessions. Learn more about this new offering and view our full range of workshops at www.lexile.com/pd/on-site-workshops/.
