The mission of the College Opportunity Program is to increase student preparation for post- secondary opportunities through academic enrichment, academic advising, motivational activities, and K-12 partnerships. Federal programs administered by COP include six Educational Talent Search programs, one Upward Bound Program, a Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate (GEAR UP) Program, and two UC Davis Community Resource Centers located in Shasta and Siskiyou counties.
The overarching goal of the SOAR for Math project is to develop, implement and test a professional learning model that incorporates a group mentoring approach. The aim of the model is to build teacher capacity to simultaneously promote English Learners academic- language development and mathematical content understanding. The randomized controlled trial (RCT) will be conducted in 60 elementary schools in Southern California.
Working with 80 elementary schools in Southern California, REEd will test the efficacy of an instructional capacity building model that targets the academic language and literacy needs of English learners in grades 3-6.
In partnership with Los Angeles Unified School District, Robla School District, and Boston Public Schools, REEd will pilot, and test a professional development initiative that engages mentors and TK-2 teachers in improving literacy outcomes for young English Learners.
REEd’s new Sim Lab uses a combination of artificial intelligence and live actors to mimic some of the most challenging interactions teachers, instructional coaches and school leaders face. The Sim Lab will provide our partner school districts with professional learning opportunities that allows individuals to rehearse, practice and perfect their ability to integrate new skills into their daily routines.
