About the Webinars

This two-part webinar series, for school teams of two and up, is a follow-on to the Standards-Based Learning System and Disciplinary Literacy discussions of the past year; a chance to look at data and talk about it from a school perspective.

A critical component of a standards-based learning system is student engagement with the practices of the discipline. In these two sessions, we will examine protocols and strategies for collecting, examining, and analyzing instructional practices data; specifically:

      • instructional practices that provide opportunities for students to engage in the practices
      • the literacy challenges of the discipline

Standards-based learning systems are driven by data. Schools need credible evidence to make decisions that move both educators and student learners forward on their learning journey. Data-driven educational decision-making refers to the processes by which educators analyze student learning and instructional practices to identify the strengths and challenges of the academic program.

Examining instructional practices data helps in making more informed decisions about the potential for student learning, instruction and professional learning.

Eligibility

This two-part webinar series is open to NESA School teams of two or more.

Participants must have attended a NESA Standards-Based Learning System and/or Disciplinary Literacy event in 2020-2021, specifically:

Teams are expected to attend both sessions: Part 1 on April 13, and Part 2 on April 20.
