The mission of the College Opportunity Programs (COP) 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, five
Upward Bound Programs, and one Gaining Early Awareness and
Readiness for Undergraduate (GEAR UP) Program.
The overarching goal of the Essential Practices 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
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.
