[Webinar] Staying on Track: How Leaders Can Support Grade-Level Learning
This recorded webinar explores how school and district leaders can help set teachers and students up for success with grade-level content.
With student proficiency scores across the country lagging behind pre-pandemic levels, teachers are facing increased pressure to accelerate teaching and learning—that is, to keep pace with grade-level curriculum materials while addressing unfinished learning from prior grades.
This webinar presents leadership strategies for supporting accelerated learning, including:
- identifying the priority content within each grade level;
- creating realistic pacing guidance that includes built-in time for addressing unfinished learning; and
- putting in place ongoing professional learning opportunities that support a nuanced understanding of the prerequisite skills and knowledge students need to access grade-level content.
These strategies can empower teachers to deliver grade-level instruction without sacrificing rigor or leaving out important content—ensuring that students have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in future grades.
