A Look at How Learning Works

Monday, September 13, 2021 - 3:30pm

Presented by Nancy Frey and John Almarode

Understanding how learning works helps us make decisions that move learning forward in our schools and classrooms. Over the past 150 years, cognitive scientists have generated amazing research on how our students acquire, consolidate, and store information. This webinar provides an overview of the science of learning and how to translate that science into classroom practices that increase student learning.

How Tutoring Works

Monday, June 21, 2021 - 3:30pm

In Partnership with AESA: Leading the Rebound: Rebuilding Agency, Accelerating Learning Recovery, and Rethinking Schools

Monday, June 14, 2021 - 3:30pm

Presented by Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, Dominique Smith, and John Hattie

For Doug Fisher, Nancy Frey, Dominique Smith, and John Hattie, rushing back to the “old normal” may very well be the “greatest travesty that can arise for our schools.” Because the “old normal” won’t accelerate learning, won’t reignite engagement, won’t restore social-emotional well-being. Instead, we should draw on the many lessons learned so we can take advantage of this unprecedent moment in time to create better systems for schooling.

In Partnership with EducationWeek: Rebound: Rebuilding Agency, Accelerating Learning Recovery, Rethinking Schools

Wednesday, May 26, 2021 - 11:00am

Presented by John Hattie, Dominique Smith, Douglas Fisher, and Nancy Frey

Fifteen months since the pandemic tested and tested again our school systems, we now face the biggest test of all: Where to next? Is it enough to rush back to the “old normal” without benefiting from the many lessons learned? Will the “old normal” accelerate learning, reignite engagement, restore social-emotional well-being?

In their upcoming Rebound webinar, presenters Doug Fisher, Nancy Frey, Dominique Smith, and John Hattie offer a resounding “No!” Instead, they demonstrate how to take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity to reboot teaching and learning as we know it so we can move forward with fresh optimism and better systems for schooling.


 Culturally Responsive Teaching for Multilingual Learners: Tools for Equity

Monday, May 17, 2021 - 3:30pm

Presented by Sydney Snyder and Diane Staehr Fenner

Culturally responsive teaching (CRT) is an essential practice to equitably educate multilingual learners (MLs) and support ML families. However, understanding what CRT looks like when implemented in schools and classrooms, especially in distance learning and hybrid environments, can be challenging to pin down. In this webinar, we will focus on sharing practical, research-based look-fors, tools, and strategies that you can use to integrate CRT for MLs. Join us for an engaging, interactive session to get new ideas about how CRT can become an integral part of your practice no matter what your instructional model looks like this year.


Learning Happens When Students Question

Monday, May 10, 2021 - 3:30pm

Presented by Jackie Walsh

Student questions support visible learning by engaging students in authentic discussion and providing teachers feedback about where students are in their learning. Yet student questions are largely absent from most classrooms today. Join author Jackie Walsh to learn how to create an environment, cultivate mindframes, and intentionally design experiences to develop student capacity as skillful, purposeful questioners. This interactive session includes video clips spotlighting students using four question types—self-questions, academic, exploratory, and dialogic—to advance different learning outcomes and increase students’ ownership of their learning.


 Street Data: A Next-Generation Model for Equity, Pedagogy, and School Transformation

Monday, May 3, 2021 - 3:30pm

Presented by Shane Safir, Dr. Jamila Dugan, Chris Emdin, and Jal Mehta

Street data is the qualitative and experiential data that emerges at eye level and on lower frequencies when we train our brains to discern it. Street data is asset based, building on the tenets of culturally responsive education by helping educators look for what’s right in our students, schools, and communities instead of seeking out what’s wrong. Street data embodies an ethos and a change methodology that will transform how we analyze, diagnose, and assess everything from student learning to district improvement to policy--offering us a new way to think about, gather, and make meaning of data. Join us for this dynamic webinar as authors Shane Safir and Jamila Dugan lay out their transformational model.

Launching and Sustaining Powerful Equity Work

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - 1:00pm

We are in the midst of a triple pandemic: COVID-19, inequities exposed through distance learning, and increased urgency around racial justice. Educational leaders are called to serve the needs of our most vulnerable and marginalized students and families, and at the same time we are obligated to navigate invigorated pushback and misinformation regarding equity, inclusion, and excellence in public education. This webinar provides strategies for growing an expansive consensus among teachers, parents, building leaders, school boards, community leaders, students and local media — a consensus that empowers courageous, long-term equity work. The webinar will be led by Corwin Deep Equity experts and superintendents and EDI professionals.


 Removing Labels: Disrupting the Negative Effects of Labels and Assumptions

Monday, April 19, 2021 - 3:30pm

Presented by Dominique Smith, Douglas Fisher, and Nancy Frey

We humans make assumptions about individuals based on what we see. And those assumptions become labels. And those labels become expectations. And those expectations can become students’ realities. But, this cycle can be interrupted. Disrupting one’s thinking about another person takes a concerted effort to understand who that person really is and the strengths that person has. Let’s explore the ways that labels can be removed so that expectations for success become reality.
