District/Organization: edWeb

Educators started the 2020-21 school year with deep concerns about the impact spring school closures might have on learning. With the first half of the year now behind us, we have a clearer picture of how—if at all—those interruptions and changes to instruction affected student learning.

In this edWebinar, researchers with Illuminate Education will review their analysis of fall math and reading screening data as published recently in the whitepaper Findings from Fall Screenings: Data on COVID Learning Loss and Updated Recommendations for Instruction.

The conversation will shed light on:
Which grades experienced the most significant learning loss and in which subjects
How many months of learning have been lost by grade level
Instructional recommendations for closing the gaps

Educators will continue to be faced with disruptions to learning because of the pandemic. The findings and recommendations discussed during the edWebinar will help you to plan instruction for the coming months so that you can accelerate learning for all students.

This edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers, school and district leaders, guidance counselors, and school psychologists. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
