The NYCC Adolescent Literacy Team conducted a series of workshops with the New York State Education Department (NYSED)—Office of School Improvement and Community Services at the Brooklyn Marriott Hotel. Participants included district/school administrators, literacy coaches and teachers who work in Schools Under Registration Review (SURR), Schools in Need of Improvement (SINI) and Restructured Schools where achievement must be improved on state assessments in English Language Arts (ELA). The workshops focused on implementing research-based practices for improving middle and high school ELA performance.
