Grounded in the Teaching Tolerance Social Justice Standards, teachers can use these practices to refine their curriculum and reflect on access in their classrooms, while leaders and administrators can use them to create safer spaces for all kids to learn.

Master Class with Sarah Brown Wessling (NTOY 2010): Creating Discussions that Teach Thinking

March 25

We know that learners process their understanding through discussion. But so often, it's the teacher doing all the talking when it comes to classroom discussions. In this masterclass, we'll explore what to do before, during and after a discussion to help our students take ownership over not only the conversations, but also their learning. With both practical ways to frame discussions and ideas for designing them, this session will help teachers return to their classrooms more confident in both silence and productive talk.

Format:

This is a tried-and-true workshop from 2010 National Teacher of the Year, Sarah Brown Wessling, broken down into (5) 30-60 minute long modules. You will receive a new video each week for 5 weeks, on the 6th week you have an optional 2-hour Q&A webinar with Sarah. (Videos will be available for a total of 8 weeks.)

Rebuilding the Ladder of Educational Opportunity Report Release

February 5

This study is a collaboration between the Kellogg Foundation, NNSTOY, RTI International, and Cowder Consulting. We sampled urban and rural schools in a variety of geographical settings, grade levels, and types of schools. The common thread among these diverse schools is that each has on staff an outstanding teacher leader who has been recognized as a State Teacher of the Year and has devoted him/herself to counteracting the opportunity gaps faced by the students he/she serves.
