In this webinar, Benjamin Wright, a renowned author and the current Assistant Superintendent of Academic District 4 of the Philadelphia School System explores new practices in re-engaging potentially failure-bound students in a challenging environment. Instructional strategies must meet the need of an ever-churning school population, and approaches that result in personalized student educational plans show great promise. There is a proven alternative to the “one size fits all” approach to education.

Assessment is a key factor in re-engaging potentially lost students. When instruction is tailored to a student’s ability level, as determined by assessments, students show measurable progress. Computer-assisted assessment and instruction, with diagnostics and prescriptive practices, provide invaluable reporting data back to educators – allowing them to get and keep students on track because the instruction meets the student’s readiness level. With a teaching methodology that includes progressive classroom instruction alongside computer-aided instruction, a student’s learning can be completely re-shaped day by day.
Please join Mr. Wright as he shares a transformative vision and gives real-life examples of best practices that can be used by educators across the country.
