Leaders tend to spread their time and energies around, investing in a variety of activities that seem worthwhile without realizing that roughly 80 percent of their leadership impact will come from only 20 percent of their leadership practices. The Smiths come together to show just how much leaders can improve leadership impact by allocating professional leadership time and resources more strategically.

Presented by Larry Ainsworth, Kara Vandas, & Mary Jane O’Connell

Imagine the possibility of tripling students’ rate of academic growth in the span of just one year. Such a vast leap sounds like a dream, but the research tells us that accelerating learning in this dramatic way is not just a far-reaching hope; in fact, it’s doable for every teacher, in every classroom. Providing students with a deep understanding of specific learning intentions and success criteria brings a type of clarity that results in just that kind of exponential acceleration.  This webinar will introduce participants to practical methods that can significantly accelerate learning for all students by ensuring both teachers, and their students, are absolutely clear about what students need to learn, why they are learning it, and how.

Presented by Douglas Fisher & Nancy Frey

This webinar introduces key concepts from the book on what works, and more importantly, when it works. Fisher and Frey explain the importance of effect size in determining one’s impact on student learning, and explore the learning conditions needed as students go from surface learning, to deeper learning and transfer. Graphic organizers are effective, but when? When is reciprocal teaching best deployed? In collaboration with John Hattie, the authors have aligned literacy practices to phases of learning.
