Culturally Responsive Leadership: Cultivating a Differentiated Learning Environment Where Teachers Thrive
August 9 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Empowering teachers to maximize student outcomes is a big part of being a K-12 leader. Differentiated instruction is as critical as ever, with fewer teachers, larger class sizes, and diverse populations of students with a range of learning styles and needs. Supporting teachers with so many factors at play is no small task!
During this interactive edWebinar, EdConnective expert coaches will guide you to:
- Identify bite-sized strategies you can implement immediately to establish a building-wide culture that meets the needs of all students
- Intentionally build the capacity for teachers to incorporate differentiation strategies to close learning gaps
This will NOT be a “sit-and-get” session! You’ll have the opportunity to interact, ask questions, and participate actively to ensure you leave with real, actionable knowledge. This is but a small glimpse of what can be achieved through 1:1 coaching, small group coaching, and interactive workshops.
This edWebinar will be most valuable to K-12 school and district leaders, chief academic officers, instructional coaching leaders, directors of special education, and other district teaching and learning leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
