How Leaders Can Turn Best Practices into Today's Practices
Our learners today live in a completely different world than we did 25, 15, or even 10 years ago. Students have access to on-demand information with the click of a button on their phones. But, that doesn't always lead to better learning.
We saw this work be imperative with the onset of COVID-19 and the wave of distance learning take over in our schools and places of work.
Yet, on the fundamental level of learning, we know that all of this change needs to be channeled for it to have a positive impact on our students and in our classrooms. This session goes into detail on how to take our BEST Practices in pedagogy/instruction and turn them into TODAY'S practices that promote authentic learning experiences for all students, whether in-person, or in blended or virtual learning environments.

Schools are now working through Phase 2 of the Next Generation Standards Implementation. This phase is focused on curriculum so that 2020-2021 instruction is aligned to the Next Generation Standards in anticipation of the grade 3-8 assessments changing in the spring of 2021. The timeline for high schools regents follows in 2022 onward.

This session will provide grade level teachers to prioritize standards and begin work on a curriculum.
