Anyone who has grappled with questions of what to do with data from child assessments – whether based on observations of children's development over months or simple snapshots of early literacy learning – will want to tune in to the next webinar coming from the PreK-3rd Grade National Work Group. On December 5, the work group is hosting its sixth webinar in a seven-part series on reducing achievement gaps through comprehensive reforms that reach up through the early grades of elementary school.
The webinar has a bang-up panel. As always, the New America Foundation, through Lisa Guernsey (@LisaGuernsey) or Laura Bornfreund (@LBornfreund), will live-tweet the event. You can register here or go to the PreK-3rd Grade National Work Group page for more information.
