As the school year comes to a close, we’re reminded that our students depend on us to constantly pay attention to the details of teaching and learning. Even in the summer months, there’s still much work to be done as we all move to a better understanding of the language of the standards and what they’re asking us to do for every student we serve.
With that in mind, here’s a look back at three dynamic messages from Winter 2018 for you to reflect on.
Kate Gerson, Chief Executive Officer of UnboundEd, unpacks how data says we’re failing students, mainly those of color, and introduces five charges grounded at the intersection of equity and standards work.
Lacey Robinson, Chief, Program and Engagement of UnboundEd, tells a story that demonstrates how beliefs and expectations shape us and, in turn, shape the lives of our students.
Sonja Santelises, Chief Executive Officer of Baltimore City Public Schools, discusses how educators have to link their work in schools, including standards-aligned instruction, to a larger dialogue that addresses communities of color and those in poverty and the long-term livelihood of both students and their communities.
