Tailored Professional Development

Southeast Alabama Regional Inservice Center Teacher Consultants are prepared to work with our area school districts to design unique programs to meet specific needs. Leadership teams meet with administrators and leadership teams of teachers to determine content needs, delivery strategies, and scheduling. Tailored staff development provides districts with the necessary tools to meet the increasing demands of Writing Assessments, Subject Area Testing Programs, and Alabama Course of Study based assessments.

Classroom Demonstrations with Debriefing/Teacher Mentoring

Teacher consultants present process-based lessons in teachers' classrooms, aligned with state and district standards. Small groups of teachers are debriefed on the strategies used in the demonstrations. Classroom demonstrations have been so successful that schools are now requesting scheduled classroom demonstrations as an integral part of their professional development programs.

Book Study Groups

Southeast Alabama Regional Inservice Center (SEARIC) staff assist school faculties in choosing relevant reading material for a year-long book study. During regularly scheduled "book club" style meetings, SEARIC consultants facilitate discussions of the reading and when appropriate, model strategies for classroom implementation. Often book study sessions are held during teachers' planning times so that this program does not interfere with daily instructional time. 

On-line Book Study Groups

SEARIC staff select relevant reading material for a five-week book study that targets specific strategies. During scheduled on-line meetings, SEARIC staff facilitate discussions of the reading and when appropriate, model strategies for classroom implementation. Book study participants develop and share lesson implementing strategies spotlighted during the book study.

Based on need assessment data from teachers, administrator, and other school personnel in our inservice area workshops in 12 areas were featured in our summer 2022 workshop sessions. Gain access to the descriptions of these workshops in our summer workshop brochure “At Your Service”.
