UnboundEd’s interactive two-day Virtual Summit for teachers, coaches, and leaders emphasizes instructional planning in the complex era COVID-19 and amidst a historical anti-racist movement.
With an emphasis on grade-level curriculum, strategic supports, and equitable instruction, the summit moves educators through planning processes that can produce meaningful, engaging in-person and virtual classroom experiences. Teachers & coaches leave the Summit better prepared to make informed decisions that address unfinished instruction while remaining in grade-level curriculum, and leaders leave the Virtual Summit better prepared to make decisions that ensure students have equitable access to grade-level instruction.
All sessions are led by our highly trained facilitators. To ensure an engaging experience, we maintain a 1:15 facilitator to participant ratio, with a maximum of 30 participants per session.
ELA pathway participants examine the critical role that educator beliefs play in literacy equity. They identify the impact of unconscious bias on access to grade-level ELA content for all students. They study the ELA shifts through the lens of unfinished teaching and learning due to interrupted schooling. Participants identify opportunities to increase the frequency of access to grade-level ELA texts and tasks by attending to the shifts, standards, and equitable instructional practices in the complex COVID-19 era and beyond.
Math pathway participants examine the heightened role that educator beliefs play in math educational equity. They identify the impact of unconscious bias on access to grade-level math content for all students. They examine the focus of the standards, within and across grade connections, and the balance of conceptual understanding, procedural skills, and fluency, as well as application through the lens of unfinished teaching and learning due to interrupted schooling. Participants identify opportunities to increase the frequency of access to grade-level math content by attending to the mathematical shifts as they continue to provide equitable instruction throughout this complex year.
Leadership pathway participants examine the heightened role that school leadership and beliefs play in math and ELA educational equity. Participants identify the impact of unconscious bias and racism on access to grade-level math and ELA content for all students. They study the mathematical shifts through the lens of unfinished teaching and learning due to interrupted schooling. Participants identify areas where students may need support with comprehension of grade-level text. Participants identify leadership opportunities to increase the frequency of access to grade-level math and ELA content as they continue to provide equitable instruction.
Our next national Virtual Summit is tentatively planned for January 2021. Please check back for updates and registration information.

"Ever since I've been with UnboundEd, I have become such a learner. I try to listen as much as I can and show other people where I am that it's important to really listen to stakeholders. I want to be that ally. I was one of those people who used to say that I didn't see color. I do everything differently now because I realized it's about involving everyone, every stakeholder, in making change. The learning has been incredible."
