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
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.
