Informed instruction leads to effective learning. To help students become independent readers, writers, and thinkers, teachers need to consistently use data to inform instructional decisions and better meet students’ specific learning needs. This interactive edWebinar, led by Michael Haggen, will demonstrate how data can be used to help guide student learning.
Participants will gain a clear understanding of how to interpret robust data, at the discreet skill level, and how to utilize this information to develop instructional plans and strategies to meet all students at their own level. Teachers will leave with a deep appreciation of the power of personalized learning and how it can better inform whole-class and small-group instruction. This edWebinar will be of interest to kindergarten through elementary school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
