This event, formerly known as the ELA Curriculum Fair, introduces participants to characteristics of effective ELA resources and provides opportunity for exploration of multiple curriculum options.  This event includes the following activities:

2. Participation in a live face-to-face training and exploration of resources.

Activity 1: Pre-Recorded Informational Video 

Participants will access a pre-recorded informational video that introduces them to a number of resources to prepare for ELA resource adoption. During the recording, participants will understand the new SoR legislation and access the NDSoR Curriculum Evaluation Guide. The recording will walk participants through each section of the guide.
