Responding to COVID-19: Rebuilding, Reconnecting, and Accelerating Learning

Webinar: Accelerating All Readers to Address Literacy Learning Loss

Wednesday, May 27, 2020 • 1:00 PM Pacific / 4:00 PM Eastern

What are the best practices that will effectively accelerate our readers who have fallen behind? With unprecedented numbers of students affected by the “COVID slide,” our instructional plans must be scalable, differentiated, grounded in the science of reading, and informed by data-driven assessments that place students at their precise points of instructional need. In this webinar, we’ll discuss best practices and considerations for accelerating all readers, through the lens of the research-based Systematic Instruction in Phonological Awareness, Phonics, and Sight Words (SIPPS) K–12 curriculum.

Webinar: Reconnecting With Our Students and Rebuilding Our Learning Communities

Thursday, May 28, 2020 • 1:00 PM Pacific / 4:00 PM Eastern

Our students, colleagues, and schools have experienced stress and trauma due to COVID-19. Now, as we prepare for a new school year unlike any other, how can we best address the social-emotional needs of our learning communities? In this webinar, we’ll explore the vital SEL and relationship-building work that must occur in order for our students to feel safe, connected, cared for, and ready to learn, using the CASEL SELect K–8 curriculum Caring School Community as our guide.
