Free Webinar on Balanced Leadership
What is it that makes some school leaders great and others not so great? Why are some principals able to turn around their schools, when others turn around themselves and walk away from their schools, as evidenced by the exceptionally high turnover rate among school leaders? Based on a scientific analysis of decades of research and years of experience working with principals solving real problems, we've arrived at a simple answer: Balance.

Join Bryan Goodwin, lead author of the new ASCD book, Balanced Leadership forPowerful Learning , for this in-depth webinar where he will share practical strategies that self-professed ordinary people have used to become extraordinary leaders. You will learn about the three key roles that leaders must balance to be effective: visionary strategists, optimistic change agents, and purpose driven team builders

WEBINAR: Foundational Reading Skills

FOUNDATIONAL READING SKILLS: Standards Tell Us What--Research Tells Us How 

We know that all students need the foundational skills to become proficient readers. 

"The Common Core State Standards define what foundational skills students should have by the end of each grade (K-5), but the standards do not tell teachers how they should teach. Teachers are thus free to provide students with whatever tools and knowledge their professional judgment and experience identify as most helpful for meeting the goals set out in the standards." (From Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects, 2010) 

You can meet the goals by emphasizing skills that impact reading development and predict reading success. You can accelerate student progress by using highly-effective strategies to teach the foundational skills to developing and struggling readers. 

Attend this public webinar to: 

• Learn which foundational skills serve as predictors for reading success. 
• Understand the research about critical content and effective strategies for teaching the foundational skills.
