The RSVP deadline has passed for this event.


Public schools have long faced the challenge of working with students with a wide range of academic performance.  COVID-19 made this even more challenging, widening the range of knowledge and skills. However, remediation has rarely worked as a strategy for catching up students. In the second of six sessions in this series, participants will look at a comprehensive strategy for accelerating learning of students furthest behind.

Audience: Administrators, teachers, educational advocates

Equity in Teaching and Learning Webinar Series Description: This six webinar series is designed to assist educators (1) better understand the sources of inequity in schools and classrooms and (2) adopt practices for promoting equity in learning.

The webinar series holds together as a coherent, sequenced program, but participation in all sessions is not necessary.  

Each session will include a mini-lesson, opportunities to interact with other educators relative to the topic, and access to tools and resources.

He has more than 25 years of experience in education, formerly serving as a classroom teacher, literacy coach, change coach, researcher, policy advocate and university professor.
