In this webinar, Benjamin Wright, a renowned author and the current Assistant Superintendent of Academic District 4 of the Philadelphia School System, explores new practices in re-engaging potentially failure-bound students in a challenging environment. Instructional strategies must meet the needs of an ever-churning school population, and approaches that result in personalized student educational plans show great promise. There is a proven alternative to the “one size fits all” approach to education.
Assessment is a key factor in re-engaging potentially lost students. When instruction is tailored to a student’s ability level, as determined by assessments, students show measurable progress. Computer-assisted assessment and instruction, with diagnostics and prescriptive practices, generate invaluable reporting data for educators, allowing them to get and keep students on track because the instruction meets the student’s readiness level. With a teaching methodology that includes progressive classroom instruction alongside computer-aided instruction, a student’s learning can be completely re-shaped day by day.
Please join Mr. Wright as he shares a transformative vision and gives real-life examples of best practices that can be used by educators across the country.
