New York State School Boards Association
STU 208: Intervention Strategies: Business as usual? Think Again

Member Price : Complimentary

This webinar presentation is for you if you believe that reducing class size, doing more homework, being taught by experienced teachers, using classroom technology, repeating a grade or increasing school time will lead to improved student achievement. Many long held beliefs about education practices and pedagogy are costly and ineffective. In a time when academic and fiscal accountability have become part of our educational vernacular, it seems odd to continue implementing them. So why is this the case? Attend this thought provoking webinar to understand some of the misconceptions about class size reduction, homework, seniority, technology, remediation, grade retention and extended school time. Get practical advice on instructional alternatives for each that can result in higher student achievement.
