Building Persistence Through Teamwork
Today (11/6)
1 p.m.-2 p.m.

How do we help adult learners commit to their education and persist through the various challenges life brings? One way is through building a sense of community in the class via collaborative activities. This webinar will discuss the research on learner persistence and provide examples of activities four instructors did with their students to build teamwork and support persistence.

Assessment to Instruction
Wednesday, Nov. 13
12 p.m.-1 p.m.

In this one-hour webinar, participants will learn how to connect CASAS results to instruction so teachers are informed about what their individual classes need for improvement. By generating reports, directors, coordinators and teachers know where students succeed and where they need more help. What reports are most helpful and how to read these reports will be covered so you can delve into your own agency reports and distribute them accordingly.

Effective Vocabulary Instruction
Wednesday, Nov. 20
1 p.m.-2 p.m.

This webinar will feature a panel of vocabulary instruction subject-matter experts offering three perspectives. Dr. Terry Salinger will provide insights from research, Dr. Ramona Chauvin will lend her expertise on vocabulary instructional change and support and Guillermo Verdin will offer the practitioner perspective on effective vocabulary teaching practices.
