Session Description: Educators are now asked to accelerate learning for all students to make up for lost time. Teaching to grade level when teaching whole-class means that many teachers will use high-dosage tutoring and adaptive practice.  Research shows that before moving on to more advanced skills, students must master certain prerequisites.  Our Focus Skills in Star assessments and Freckle take the pressure off knowing where they should be practicing, so you can be confident that they’re learning and growing at a hastened yet comfortable pace.

Session Description: Facilitating inquiry-based instruction depends on students bringing their understanding of the world to the experience. Those preconceptions are key to the students creating meaning for themselves through inquiry based instruction. Prior knowledge plus the interactions during an inquiry based instructional unit will engage students and create meaning from their own perspectives which is longer lasting and more meaningful to the student.
