September Academy Sessions

 

BRAND NEW! SYSTEMIC APPROACH TO CLOSING THE GAP – This session trains participants on using the new KASC 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.

EFFECTIVE FEEDBACK TO IMPROVE LEARNING — Learn research-based strategies for feedback that propels learners forward. Our 3-hour session is based on Eric Jensen’s understanding that effective feedback is one of the highest factors identifies as having a high impact on student achievement. An extension of our Growth Mindset trainings, this session allows participants to apply the characteristics of effective feedback and provides practice and tools for giving feedback to students.
