Supporting Professional Excellence through Joint Labor-Management
Monday, December 6, 1:30 PM – 2:15 PM (ET)
The National Education Association (NEA) supports the professional growth of members throughout their careers. Mentoring, professional learning communities, micro-credentials, and other opportunities available through the NEA can build capacity for educators, especially in places where districts struggle to offer these opportunities. Learn how joint labor-management collaboration has led to success for educators in two NEA locales and reflect on how joint labor-management can support the professional practice of educators.
Professional Learning Data Design: Balancing Accountability and Compassion
Monday, December 6, 6 PM – 7 PM (ET)
COVID threw coaches and educators into the deep end of blended learning — which meant professional learning teams had to focus even more strongly on meeting everyone where they were. Learn how one district adapted to balance accountability with compassion, ensuring a high bar for instructional practice while supporting teachers who were still building confidence around new strategies. Explore an instructional platform designed to support individual educator growth in the context of district goals, and hear from professional learning leaders on adapting district strategy to lessons learned.
Achieving Literacy Success for ALL
Tuesday, December 7, 9 AM – 9:45 AM (ET)
Wilson Language Training is a provider of research-based reading and spelling programs for all ages. Its multisensory, structured curricula – Fundations®, Wilson Just Words®, the Wilson Reading System®, and Wilson Fluency®/Basic have been proven highly effective. The best way to achieve literacy success is to identify the individual student’s needs and then implement the correct teaching strategy. Come learn about the several literacy instructional models we have developed to meet the needs of distinct student populations: prevention and early intervention for K-3 students, intervention for older students, and intensive intervention. Each model differs in practice, intensity, and duration, but all have been designed to help students master the appropriate level of literacy. This networking opportunity will allow you to learn how Wilson works and more about our professional learning, coaching for teachers, and support for school administrators.
ELMES Accelerating Language Development for English Learners
Tuesday, December 7, 1:30 PM – 2:15 PM (ET)
Join the English Learners and Migrant Education Services (ELMES) team to learn about WestEd’s Quality Teaching for English Learners professional learning approach to provide both elementary and secondary educators with the supports they need to accelerate language development, academic literacy, and disciplinary knowledge of all students, particularly English Learners.
