Acceleration is the path less traveled in most schools and classrooms, especially those in which students are reading and writing far below grade level. The usual approach is to help students catch up by remediating learning or going backwards to go forward. Through the examination of specific and practical strategies that administrators, teachers, teams, and schools can implement, Dr. Sharon V. Kramer takes viewers on an alternate journey through the acceleration pathway that closes the achievement gap quickly enough to access grade and course level learning for all students.
Examine ways to:
- Develop an acceleration mindset
- Build the foundation for acceleration
- Dig into the real work of acceleration
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders of the elementary through high school levels.
