From the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading:
Learning at Home and in the Classroom: Innovation in Curricula and Professional Learning, Nov. 2, 2021, 3-4:30 p.m. ET. When it comes to the connection between home and school, two things are true: Parents are their child’s first and most important teacher and teachers are the biggest within-school factor affecting student achievement. When the adults in these two critical roles join forces and reinforce each other, student outcomes improve.
The past 18 months have posed many challenges for both teachers, who’ve had to adapt to teaching virtually, and parents, who’ve had to become “teachers” at home while balancing other responsibilities. The experiences of both parties underscore the importance of high-quality instructional materials and high-quality professional learning that can enable and strengthen school-home connections. On November 2, 3-4:30 p.m. ET, the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, in partnership with Overdeck Family Foundation, will host a GLR Learning Tuesdays webinar during which several leaders in the field of education will discuss some of the innovations in curricula and professional learning that merged during the pandemic and how they might be deployed to help address teacher retention concerns. Laurie Sztejnberg of Overdeck Family Foundation will moderate the conversation with Elizabeth Chu of Columbia University Center for Public Research and Leadership; Bryan Hassel of Public Impact; Sarah Johnson of Teaching Lab; David Rosenberg of Education Resource Strategies; and Lauren Weisskirk of EdReports.
