School Reform? Be Honest and Start from Where You Are (A Free Webinar)
This Friday, my friends over at TurningTechnologies are sponsoring a free one-hour webinar entitled Impact Every Student: Simple Strategies That Provide Big Improvement (April 30, 2010 | 2:00 pm Eastern)
I was impressed with the frankness of their description "With all the options available to promote school improvement, where should we begin? If we're smart, we'll start by being honest." I'm all for honesty - you can only truly start from where you are.
The webinar promises to focus on how to engage teacher teams in effective assessment, planning and action. It features Mike Schmoker (author and consultant) , Tina Rooks, (K-12 Ed Consultant at Turning Technologies) and from the field - Sharyn C. Gabriel (principal) and Janet Bergh (reading coach) from Ocoee Middle School. Ocoee, FL
It should be valuable for teachers, leaders and all those dedicated to school improvement! Here's the link to the webinar.
