For more than a year now, we educators have been tested and tested again. We’ve been stretched, we’ve been pulled, we’ve been put through the wringer. But now it’s time to rebound. It’s time to bounce back, bring back better, and benefit from the many lessons learned to reignite engagement, accelerate learning, and move forward with fresh optimism and better systems for schooling.
Participants will engage in an active and empowering learning experience that will enhance their understanding of how to create learning environments that:
· Address the collective traumas we have experienced during the pandemic and rebuild our sense of agency and self, so that we can attribute student success to their efforts.
· Evaluate what we have learned about remote teaching and learning to determine what to carry forward and what to leave behind.
· Implement instructional and assessment practices that ensure our students reclaim lost knowledge, build skills, develop agency, and accelerate learning gains.
· Redefine classrooms, learning experiences, the ways schools operate, and the very idea of schooling itself.
· I can identify factors that build and rebuild agency in students and adults.
· I can analyze the curriculum to determine students’ needs.
· I can design meaningful learning experiences to accelerate learning.
· I can use assessment data to make meaningful decisions.
· I can re-think the systems we use to address students’ learning needs.
