Making Differentiated Instruction Work for You
|Differentiated instruction—the practice of accommodating and building on students' diverse learning needs—is often prescribed as a key to effective pedagogy today. But as many teachers know, it can be extremely difficult to implement successfully and—to make matters worse—is often subject to varied, sometimes perplexing interpretations.|
In this webinar, two educators with direct experience in working with diverse-needs students will seek to demystify differentiated instruction and offer actionable strategies to help teachers make this practice work in their classrooms. Topics to be discussed include classroom management, effective grouping, formative assessment, and skills development.
Reading Interventions: When Core Instruction Isn't Enough
|In this webinar, two instructional intervention experts will provide research-based guidance for planning and implementing reading interventions to meet the varying needs of students.|
Jeanne Wanzek, a leading researcher on literacy development, will describe strategies for pinpointing—and subsequently addressing—core instructional problems in reading. School district consultant Amanda VanDerHeyden will discuss how to identify students in need of additional support, match them with the "right" intervention, and monitor progress. Both experts will highlight websites with free resources and intervention protocols that teachers can begin using right away.
Changing Mindsets, Motivating Students
|In this webinar, renowned psychologist Carol Dweck will discuss how teachers can use new discoveries in cognitive development to improve student motivation and engagement.|
Through her intensive research, Dr. Dweck has found that students who believe intelligence is a fixed quality are more likely to avoid challenging tasks, while students who believe intelligence can be developed with effort tend to be more successful. She'll discuss some of the most common mistakes teachers make in trying to motivate students and detail strategies for promoting a "growth mindset" rather than "fixed mindset" in the classroom.
