May 2014 NTI: Grades 3-8 ELA Turnkey Kit for Principals - Session 5

Participants Smiling July 2012

Session 5

Engaging Families through Student Work

Time: 105 minutes


In this session principals will come to understand new paradigms for engaging families in their children’s education -- presentations of learning and student-led conferences. Both of these structures provide opportunities for families to deeply understand the Common Core Standards and each child’s growth in relation. They will hear from a principal deeply experienced in developing both structures what it takes to develop and implement these structures and the incredible impact they can make on school culture and student learning.
