Join us for a Book Study on Accelerating K-8 Math Instruction bu Dr. Nickie Newton. There is an overwhelming consensus among both educators and researchers that we need to adopt acceleration rather than remediation as a tool to counteract the challenges that students currently face.
Key topics to be discussed:
How to accelerate instruction as a way of saying "everybody is invited to this party.”
Explore pathways to helping academically challenged students achieve and move in step with their grade-level standards.
Examine suggested implementation and evaluation strategies grades K-8.
Review Dr. Newton's strategies, tools, and the downloadable templates she offers readers, ideas that can be used right away.
Participants must secure a copy of the book before the course begins.
The goal is to enlighten educators in the importance of eliminating disparities and realizing the imperative of critically developing cultural proficiency. The group will have candid conversations about race to help educational leaders understand why performance inequity persists and how to guide policy analysis and instructional reform that promote true academic parity. This hybrid 15 hour book study will assist educational leaders to examine the achievement gap through the prism of race. Participants must secure a copy of Courageous Conversations About Race: A Field Guide for Achieving Equity in Schools and Beyond by Glenn E. Singleton before the course starts.
