During her presentation, Debbie will show teachers how to create and sustain meaningful, engaging literacy stations that grow and change as their students develop new skills, and as instructional time shifts. Plus, teachers will be reminded how to make confident decisions based on what they know about their kids and about good literacy instruction—so they can move away from quick-fix ideas like worksheets or pre-made centers found online.

CLARITY: What Matters Most in Learning, Teaching, and Leading

Monday, December 9, 2019 - 3:30pm

Presented by Lyn Sharratt

Bringing Clarity to the elements that sharpen precision-in-practice ensures knowing “where to next.” Gaining Clarity is dependent on a set of interrelated concepts deployed within an evidence-proven framework and implemented consistently and reflectively across all systems, schools, and classrooms. Join Lyn Sharratt in this three-part webinar, in which she describes how Clarity can be realized in 1. Learning, 2. Teaching, and 3. Leading. Lyn promises no silver bullets; after all, there are none. The real power of data, she insists, resides in the “aha” outcomes of collaborative conversations with, and ‘roll-up-your sleeves’ work by ALL stakeholders, focused on students’ faces, as data today is instruction tomorrow.
