ACP Community of Practice

The 2020-21 ACP Community of Practice focused on a different ACP topic each month. Through this collaboration between DPI and all 12 CESAs, participants had access to:

  • Expertise with leaders or peers who will share their experiences
  • Information about related features in Xello
  • Resources to help you put your learning into practice
  • Follow-up support sessions with your CESA ACP Coordinator and local school districts so you can share local best practices or brainstorm challenges together

You can still access all these great materials from the 2020-21 ACP Community of Practice in the menu listed below. And stay tuned later this summer for information on the 2021-22 ACP Community of Practice!

Connecting Careers and World Language

Workforce- and World-Ready with World Languages - Written by DPI's World Language and Global Education Consultant, Pam Delfosse, and published in a national publication, ACTFL, this article is an exemplar of how CTE and Career Pathways intersect with World Languages. It's impossible to read and not want to start developing CTE and World Language collaborations in your school immediately!

Connecting Careers and Science

Voices from STEM Fields on DL - This series of interviews highlights some of the unique literacy skills of STEM professionals and how they communicate in their day-to-day work. We hope that teachers will use these clips in their own professional learning to help reflect on how well their instruction is lining up with the work of professionals. We also hope that teachers will use these clips with students, to illustrate the importance of strategies such as careful documentation of work, peer review, clear communication, and collaboration. A detailed description of how educators could connect these interview clips to student lessons and professional learning is also provided. These ideas are organized by ELA anchor standards to support disciplinary literacy work.
