Join the Council of the Great City Schools and Student Achievement Partners for a 3-part Webinar Series on Addressing Unfinished Learning and Essential Content.

About the Webinar Series: The past few months have revealed many challenges and learnings in addressing unfinished learning while ensuring equitable access to grade-level content. In this free three-part series, experts and practitioners will discuss (1) how prioritized ELA/literacy and math content and addressing unfinished learning work together hand in hand, (2) successes and challenges in addressing unfinished learning while focusing on essential content, and (3) moving this work to scale.

Part 1: Addressing Unfinished Learning: Equitable Access to Grade-Level Learning

Educators across the country are asking: How do we address unfinished learning this year while also staying focused on grade-level essential content for all students? Join us in this webinar to learn about how the two actually complement each other. We’ll dive into key messages from SAP’s 2020–21 Priority Instructional Content in English Language Arts/Literacy and Mathematics and CGCS’s Addressing Unfinished Learning After COVID-19 School Closures, discuss implementation challenges, and reflect on lessons learned from the first few months of school. Panelists include: Phil Daro, Jason Zimba, Lily Wong Fillmore, Sue Pimentel, and Nicole Mancini.

Part 2: Educator Perspectives: Guidance on Addressing Unfinished Learning and Essential Content

Implementing the guidance on unfinished learning and essential content is not an easy feat. It requires clear communication to administrators, teachers and parents, attention to providing support for implementation and collaboration, and constant iterating. Join us in this webinar to learn about some successes and challenges that practitioners have experienced in addressing unfinished learning while focusing on essential content.

Part 3: Leadership Perspectives: Best Practices and a Path Forward on Addressing Unfinished Learning and Essential Content

Districts have had to make quick adjustments during these last few months of implementing the guidance on unfinished learning and essential content. Despite moving pieces and moving targets, districts had to figure out how to move this work to scale. Join us in this webinar to learn about how district leaders have approached implementation, what went well, lessons learned, and changes they are considering for the future. Panelists will include CAO’s, curriculum content leaders, and principals.
