Demystifying the Role of Reading Comprehension in the Common Core
The role of reading comprehension in the common core may seem like a mystery. In this webinar, we will share clues and unlock the mystery of reading comprehension. We will begin by explaining what reading comprehension is and how it works. Next, we will describe connections between reading comprehension and the common core. Then we will provide practical, classroom-ready ideas for teaching students to comprehend at deeper levels.
In this webinar, we will discuss:
  • Current beliefs about the nature of reading comprehension
  • The role of reading comprehension in the common core
  • Classroom-ready teaching ideas to promote reading comprehension at deeper levels, with particular focus on the use of graphic organizers
Join us for a discussion with renowned reading expert Maureen McLaughlin on how reading comprehension correlates with the common core and how we can teach students to comprehend to their greatest potential.

Leveraging Analytics and Assessment to Close Achievement Gaps
Racial and socioeconomic achievement gaps often come to educators' attention in test scores, but they don't start there. A closer look at both assessment and other student data can help administrators recognize red flags in class access, school climate, parent involvement, and other areas that could be undermining their efforts to close achievement gaps.
Join John B. Diamond, author of the 2015 book Despite the Best Intentions: How Racial Inequality Thrives in Good Schools, and Ari Gerzon-Kessler, principal of Monaco Elementary in Colorado, who is using data to identify and correct longterm inequities in his school.
