Summer course: Closing the Achievement Gap: Strategies for Excellence with Equity – Jun 29
June 29-July 3, 2019
Learn how to raise achievement levels for all students—while narrowing gaps between groups—by increasing teacher, student, and family engagement.
Most of today’s American schools seek to raise achievement and close gaps for students whose achievement lags—but what does it really take to improve outcomes for all students in a diverse school community?
Closing the Achievement Gap uses cutting-edge frameworks to help participants consider how instructional quality, student engagement, youth development practices, parenting, and school leadership all contribute to student achievement. The program gives special focus to the challenges of responding effectively to racial, ethnic, and socio-economic differences. Using a socio-ecological approach, participants will consider the interdependence of various stakeholders and will learn how their school community can work together to pursue shared improvement goals.
