As educators, our most difficult decisions often involve choosing what not to do. As Wiliam (2016) notes, “In education, just about everything works somewhere, and nothing works everywhere.” He adds that educators often have to stop themselves from doing good things so they can guide students to do even better things.
This raises a critical question: Where should we focus our time and energy for the highest return? In this edWebinar, Gene Kerns, Ed.D., Chief Academic Officer at Renaissance, will explore the strategies that produce the greatest gains in student achievement. Topics include:
- The three areas of focus that are vital to student success. In fact, one author claims that if we truly embraced them, we would eliminate performance gaps within five years
- A free, little-known website that shows you which strategies cost the least, deliver the greatest gains, and are based on the most thorough research
- Practical tips for interpreting educational research and applying the findings to your classroom—to drive greater growth for every student
K-12 building and district administrators, educators, librarians and media specialists will benefit from attending this edWebinar. There will be time for questions after Dr. Kerns’ presentation. Join us to learn strategies for achieving growth and success in your students.
