Book Study: Unlearning
Jun 21 @ 3:30 pm – 4:30 pm

book cover: unlearning by katie novak and alison posey

Join us for a discussion about an important and helpful book during changing times!

Unlearning by Allison Posey and Katie Novak arrived just as the COVID-19 pandemic began and it couldn’t have been more timely! As we have had to unlearn and relearn how we operate, the authors offer a wealth of insight into using the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework to transform educational practices.

Written in an easy, fun, Malcom Gladwell style, the book demonstrates how the brain responds to unlearning and relearning, why we hold onto our favorite practices, and why we resist change. It is full of great examples and advice.

Together we will discuss the “unlearning cycle” and challenge ourselves to think differently about what, how, and why we teach. We will put our learning into practice by responding to reflection questions and determining next steps.

Leaders in special education who are new to their position, or new to special education frequently require additional support to successfully navigate the many expectations of their role. Whether it’s meeting state/federal guidelines, working to ensure FAPE is provided, or helping to shift mindsets to collaboratively address the learning and achievement of each student, the job can be overwhelming at times.

This network will help new special education administrators address the two critical areas of special education: compliance/documentation and performance/implementation. These meetings will also provide an opportunity to connect, share, and problem solve with other new leaders from across the region.

Do you know a new administrator, special education leader, or curriculum director in Region 1 who should be included? Share their contact information with us, and we will send them an invitation!
