ABOUT THE WEBINAR

The central purpose of Standards Based Learning (SBL) is to make learning the goal for all students. To do this, we are designing systems and structures that are more personal, more flexible, and more engaging—for educators and students.

In this session, we will explore the research and resources AERO provides to:

    • Implement effective research-based strategies for condensing curricula to accelerate learning for all learners;
    • Implement effective pedagogical practices (specifically the integration of social emotional learning competencies with the Practices of the Disciplines) to accelerate learning for all learners.

Erma Anderson will present an overview followed by 30 minutes for questions.

Student learning is not solely driven by high-quality academic curriculum and instruction. To accelerate student learning, students need to feel like they belong, be emotionally well, and be supported within a proactive, predictable, and safe environment.

“How can we do this better?” is our driver on this journey to excellence.

As we welcome students to the 2021-2022 school year, we are focused on this question with the goal of helping teachers, support staff, families, and students emerge from these unprecedented times and start a new school year stronger than ever and focused on ‘accelerating learning’ for all students.
