October & November Workshop/Academy Reminder

Hello,

This is just a reminder about our upcoming workshops and academies for October and November.

Administrator Academy – Leveraging Cultural Differences to Promote Diversity and Equity – AA #1860 – Thursday, November 9, 2017

By acknowledging and valuing diverse cultural backgrounds, educators can devise instructional lessons and activities that contextualize critical content and skills within students’ everyday lives. Through this process, educators and students learn more about one another in safe, respectful environments that promote pro-social behavior, reduce bullying, spark intrinsic motivation, increase home-school connection, and close opportunity gaps through personalized learning. This session offers strategies school leaders and teachers can transfer immediately into their buildings and classrooms to reach and engage learners of all cultures, ages, and abilities.
