This partner's approach and services

How we provide curriculum-aligned PL


ARC's workshop structure supports a transformational literacy design. Teachers work to establish a culture of engaged readers and writers and to increase rigor through the use of high-quality, grade-level texts. Teachers focus on improving student learning outcomes as they begin an ARC Core implementation.


Certified ARC Executive Coaches engage with teachers and leaders to co-plan, co-teach, demonstrate, and observe lessons. Procedural feedback and cycles of continuous improvement are used to further instructional practice, identify unique teacher and classroom needs, and to ensure PL sessions remain relevant across the system and implementation.


Certified ARC Executive Coaches work collaboratively with teachers in classrooms and in PLCs as they learn to effectively implement ARC Core. While engaged in 1:1 coaching, teachers develop a high capacity to analyze student work to plan effective lessons and to deliver strong, grade-level core instruction and differentiated instruction.


ARC's Professional Learning is flexible and adaptable to meet the needs of schools and districts. ARC provides targeted support to improve implementation of its HQIM, ARC Core, through consultative partnership. This partnership may include iterative cycles of continuous improvement with leaders in its Leadership Learning Series, and/or custom PD.
