Educators have been working hard to serve students as we continue to navigate an exceptional school year. Teachers and leaders continue to put in place new tools and systems to address health and safety challenges (especially as many students, including my own elementary-aged children re-enter school buildings), improve remote and hybrid instruction, and dig in deeply to understand individual and collective needs.
A key challenge through all of this is holding an unwavering, dual focus on addressing that which is urgent as well as that which is important in the longer term. We must make decisions about how to stabilize and recover in this moment that advance our systems, individually and collectively, towards equitable, resilient student learning that is more personalized, focused on mastery, and holistically developing.
At The Learning Accelerator, we’re focused on supporting leaders and teachers as they do this, addressing recovery and tackling meaningful advancement towards approaches that truly understand and meet the unique needs of every learner. In many cases, we’re learning this work can leverage new strengths built and lessons learned over the last year. In this update, check out some recent resources our team has created with others to help do this. As always, thank you for your partnership in this work.
