Breaking Down the "Digital" Wall: Essential Shifts for English Learners' Success in Any Learning Setting

Monday, November 16, 2020 - 3:30pm

Presented by Margarita Espino Calderon, Maria G. Dove, Diane Staehr Fenner, Margo Gottlieb, Andrea Honigsfeld, Tonya Ward Singer, Shawn Slakk, Ivannia Soto & Debbie Zacarian

One short year ago, Corwin’s Collective for EL Achievement began breaking down the walls that have for too long confined our multilingual learners, offering up nine essential shifts for delivering on our students’ promise. Then came COVID-19, which has only illuminated the long-standing systemic and societal inequities in place—most notably the Digital Divide. Now, the Collective is reconvening in an all-new webinar to share specific strategies for enacting the shifts in this very different teaching and learning climate.

Building a Curious School

Monday, June 1, 2020 - 3:30pm

Presented by Bryan Goodwin

Curiosity and motivation to learn are powerful predictors of student success―more powerful even than IQ, persistence, or teacher quality. Yet the longer students stay in school, the less curiosity and motivation they demonstrate. So, what if we were to focus on building schools that ignite student curiosity? Might everything else get easier . . . and more joyful? Learn from research and real-life success stories about how schools have “flipped the script” on improvement efforts—not by forcing rigid compliance with mandates or implementation of external programs, but by unleashing what’s already inside everyone—students and teachers alike—and waiting to come out: curiosity.


Simply Stations, Grades K-4: What Does the Rest of the Class Do During Small Groups?

Monday, May 18, 2020 - 3:30pm

Presented by Debbie Diller

Literacy work stations, when done well, can solve both of these problems—and more. Literacy stations provide partner practice using what teachers already have in their classrooms. 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.

Monday, May 4, 2020 - 3:30pm
