I wanted to personally invite you to a special learning opportunity coming to Arizona this fall. The Eliminating Achievement Gap for Latino Students Institute will take place Sept. 21-23 in Phoenix, and I'd love to see you there. I'll be joined by Anthony Muhammad and Consuelo Kickbusch, and together we will share a multi-faceted approach to eliminating the achievement gap. Educational leaders, teachers, support staff and parents will learn how to work together to significantly increase learning for Latino students. At the end of the three days, you'll leave with a plan that will make an immediate difference in classrooms schoolwide.
Here's just a small sample of the knowledge you'll gain during the event:
Learn practical strategies that schools and districts serving large Latino student populations use daily to increase student achievement.
Acquire district and site leadership practices that work to eliminate the achievement gap.
Discover how to engage and empower Latino students.
Explore targeted instructional strategies and assessment processes for developing academic vocabulary for English learners.
Uncover parenting practices that help create a home environment conducive to 21st century learning.
Determine how to effectively initiate and build relationships with Latino students.
I hope your team will attend! Please keep in mind that this conference is not exclusive to individuals of Latino decent, but instead welcomes all participants interested in increasing learning for the growing number of Latino students around the country.
