2015: Next Generation Assessment Implementation and Results

Organization: EdWeek
Date: March 3, 2015
Time: 2:00 - 3:00 PM EASTERN
Registration: Individual registration is required to participate in this webinar.
Description: How can districts prepare their students and teachers for the common-core-aligned tests this year? Efforts to align curriculum, instruction, and assessments with Common Core State Standards have intensified as the pressure escalates for states and districts that will administer the new summative tests to students this spring.  Widespread unease persists related to:
• Increased level of rigor
• New item types
• Unfamiliarity with format, and
• Test administration scheduling
Join our guests to better understand two approaches to these challenges—one in a Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium state and one in a Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers state. And learn how school and district leaders are preparing teachers and students to meet the challenges with confidence. Learn more

A Premium Skill for Teachers: Intercultural Competency

Organization: Edweek
Date: March 5, 2015
Time: 2:00- 3:00 PM EASTERN
Registration: Individual registration is required to participate in this webinar.
Description: Today’s classrooms are becoming increasingly diverse, while teachers are charged with preparing students for a global economy. In this context, intercultural competency is an increasingly important skill set for educators to possess—and for human resource offices to build into their recruitment and retention strategies. This webinar—presented in conjunction with Education Week TopSchoolJobs’ Virtual Career eXPO & PD Event—will look at how teachers can find out where they are individually on the intercultural-competency continuum and how they can develop capabilities to effectively respond to and build on cultural differences in the classroom. It will also offer insights into one district’s strategy for increasing administrators’ and new teachers’ intercultural competency—and how the program is enhancing educators’ careers. Learn more

How Teachers Can Build Social-Emotional Learning Skills

Organization: Edweek
Date: March 5, 2015
Time: 4:00-5:00 PM EASTERN
Registration: Individual registration is required to participate in this webinar.
Description: While academics remain the focus of most educators, and the initiatives that support them, learning advocates have also drawn attention to the need for efforts that address the full social-emotional needs of students. Often referred to as “whole child” initiatives, such programs help develop build skills that complement students’ ability to learn. They also require a particular skill set from educators, too. This webinar—presented in conjunction with Education Week TopSchoolJobs’ Virtual Career eXPO & PD Event—focuses on how districts can identify teachers with good social-emotional skills and develop those skills further, and what kinds of resources teachers can use to develop their social-emotional skills.
