Generalities fail us in the classroom. Teachers face individual students, not statistics. And good teachers know that making an authentic connection with students—by recognizing their unique interests, needs, and preferences—is what’s most likely to help them engage with schoolwork. No matter how magical the technology, it’s no match for the power of human relationships!
Kevin Baird, Chief Academic Officer at Achieve3000 and Chairman at the nonprofit Center for College & Career Readiness, offers specific and practical tips for accelerating literacy growth that leverage the teacher-student relationship. Just back from Vienna, where he presented on global trends in the International Baccalaureate program, Kevin will bring a healthy dose of pragmatism to the conversation on differentiating instruction.
This edWebinar is designed for all K12 administrators, educators, librarians, and literacy leaders. There will be time at the end of Kevin Baird’s presentation to get your questions answered. Join us to learn how you can differentiate content, process, product and learning environment, maximizing impact and accelerating literacy goals!
