Congress passed ESSA in 2015, but one area still challenging schools is the tiers for evidence-based interventions and materials. In a recent edWebinar, “Professional Learning in Action: Evidence-Based Practices for Student Success,” leaders from the Ohio Department of Education explained how a statewide initiative is helping administrators and teachers not only understand the tiers but also provide assistance in selecting the best materials for their students.
When educators think about diversity in the classroom, culture may be one of the characteristics that crosses their mind. But as they select their curriculum and develop their lessons, most teachers are not accounting for how culture will impact a student’s ability to participate and learn, says Dr. Almitra Berry-Jones, nationally recognized speaker, author, and consultant on the topic of culturally and linguistically diverse learners at-risk. In her edWebinar, “Cultural Relevance and Academic Equity in the Age of ESSA,” Dr. Berry-Jones explained how understanding the impact of culture, adopting a student-first mindset, and creating multiple points of engagement with the same content will help teachers move towards academic equity in their classroom.
In this engaging edWebinar, Dr. Berry-Jones explores what culture means for students, including their relationships to home, peers, and school.

Steve Rowley, CEO of Acumen Partners, with Michael Campbell, Vice President of Acumen Partners, presented the latest updates on ESSA in the webinar, “Making Sense of ESSA: What You Need to Know,” co-hosted by edWeb.net and MCH Strategic Data.
