Ongoing support is proven to increase student growth and engagement
At LightSail, we take pride in partnering with you to accelerate student literacy growth and bringing the love of reading to your classrooms. We know that no two schools or organizations are alike, and we work hard to offer a range of services to support your ever-changing professional development needs. Research shows excellent teachers are one of the most powerful influencers on student achievement. We want to help you support and develop excellent teachers. Our team of coaches has designed professional development that is customized for your needs, from embedded videos in our platform for point-of-use support to full-time, onsite literacy coaching for your teachers. Our partnership starts with a 1:1 planning meeting to design your customized professional development road map to meet your goals. Does your organization want to become self-sufficient and build a strong team of literacy coaches and facilitators? We offer Train-the- Trainer courses that include certification and turnkey materials. Do your teachers need continuing education credit? We offer many virtual and in-person workshops on topics such as
Developing students' close reading strategies
Targeting skill gaps using real-time data
Engaging students in meaningful discussions
Writing strong, measurable IEP goals
Creating school-specific curriculum units in ELA and content areas
Do teachers need to see LightSail in action with their students in their own classrooms? We offer transformational, in-class modeling, with an ongoing coaching plan to show teachers how to use LightSail as an instructional tool to achieve their literacy goals. The ongoing process includes teacher debriefs after each modeled lesson, data reviews and support from our coaches to develop their own lesson plans.
