NOVEMBER SESSIONS (All-Day Gap Academy)

NEW! SYSTEMIC APPROACH TO CLOSING THE GAP – This session trains participants on using the new KASC Gap Closure Toolkit with a multi-part attack on closing achievement gaps. Participants will interact with the contents of the kit and learn to use each piece effectively. The toolkit includes original ideas that have a strong foundation in research. One focus of this kit is educating students on what really happens in the brain during learning so students believe they can learn, while also providing teachers with ready-to-use tools to enable students to succeed. The systemic approach of the kit is directed toward changing expectations and attitudes for all shareholders in the community.   

 

NEW! DIGGING DEEPER INTO THE GAP CLOSURE TOOLKIT (must attend morning session as prerequisite) – The afternoon session will allow participants to dig deeper into the contents and activities of the Gap Closure Toolkit. Time will be devoted to experiencing more of the toolkit activities, discussing how the resources are best used in the school setting, and planning for implementation by classroom teachers or school leaders.

DECEMBER ACADEMY SESSIONS

PROVEN WAYS TO INCREASE ACHIEVEMENT – Based on the research of Eric Jensen, this 3-hour session introduces high-effect size factors that promote student achievement: growth mindset, relationships, feedback, and student engagement. These factors will be explored and strategies will be shared for school-wide impact or for individual teacher implementation. Participants will understand how these factors impact achievement and walk away with strategies to implement in their classroom/school to raise student achievement. 

 

NEW! HIGHER-LEVEL QUESTIONING WITH QUALITY FEEDBACK — Students who ask questions and engage in higher-level discussions are being prepared for more than college and career. In this 3-hour workshop, learn how to raise the level of questioning in the classroom, lead effective discussions to impact student achievement, and provide quality feedback that engages learners.

DECEMBER SESSION PRICING
