cathy lassiterThis time of post-pandemic transition, is a great time to accelerate and strengthen student and staff learning. Guest presenter, Cathy Lassiter, Ed.D. will share strategies for leveraging the skills and knowledge gained during the past 18 months to launch you into a year of growth and learning.

This three-part series is highly interactive, with short reads, group discussions, self-reflections, and implementation planning. You will receive a copy of Leading the Rebound and Rebound Playbook by Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, Dominique Smith, and John Hattie to guide our work.

Day 1
Post Pandemic Learning: Acceleration vs. Remediation?
Explore what research tells us about the impacts of remediation vs. acceleration in improving student learning outcomes, and which practices work best. Focus topics will include:

    • building students’ sense of efficacy
    • making learning relevant and engaging
    • using instructional time wisely and efficiently

We will also discuss how approaching instruction and learning with the right mindset and evidence-based practices will help accelerate student learning.


Day 2
Equitable Practices in ELA and Math

Discover instructional and cultural practices that foster learning at high levels for all students. The practices learned in this session will give attention to:

    • diversifying materials and content
    • teaching to learning outcomes that address equity and social justice
    • designing assessments that allow students to demonstrate mastery in diverse ways
    • involving students in the creation of knowledge, content, and curriculum
    • embracing diverse language usage in interactions

We will also analyze the effects of deficit thinking on content equity and consider ways to change how teachers think and act regarding marginalized learners.


Day 3
Leadership Practices for Deep Implementation

We will focus on what is required from school and central office leaders to get to deep implementation of practices that truly impact student learning outcomes. Explore different scientific processes that result in deep implementation including the stages of implementation:

    • Exploration
    • Installation
    • Initial Implementation
    • Full Implementation

Additional topics will include assessing readiness for change and procedures for scaling up. Finally, we will consider effective ways of de-implementation of ineffective practices.
