Transforming Student Achievement with Dr. Donyall Dickey
This day of learning with Dr. Donyall Dickey will walk participants through a school-wide or district-wide approach to developing common instructional knowledge, language, and the tools necessary to help close achievement gaps and help all students reach their potential. This dynamic training will expose participants to a finite set of high-yield actionable, measurable, and replicable practices that have expeditiously transformed student achievement in urban, suburban, and rural schools/districts from coast to coast. Balanced by theory and practicality, Dr. Dickey delineates processes for aligning daily instruction with the nuanced expectations of the state standards and high-stakes summative assessments necessary to drive and sustain academic achievement in the core content areas.
