Discover new ways to inspire students toward greater learning. In this research-driven edWebinar, Kevin Baird, Chairman and Senior Faculty Member at the Center for College & Career Readiness, goes beyond Lexile® scores to explore two often overlooked keys to increasing literacy – motivation and engagement.
Literacy is driven not only by differentiation to skills, but also by differentiation to interests and passions. In this session, Kevin Baird will review both the research and new methods for engaging the hearts and minds of all learners while differentiating content according to each student’s skill level, learning temperament and learning pace.
Get information you can apply immediately with answers to these questions and more:
- What does student engagement look like in the classroom?
- How do educators turn struggling readers into children who love to read?
- What innovative educational tools are available that leverage both engagement and differentiation to make a radical difference in children’s motivation to spend more quality time on task?
Join Kevin to gain the latest tools for inspiring students to love learning. A Q&A session will follow the presentation to give participants an opportunity to ask Kevin about their school or district’s unique needs. This live, interactive event is designed for all PreK-12 administrators and educators.
