Teaching for Deeper Learning – 4-Day Academy (Sep. 17, Oct. 1, 15, and 29, 2024 – Choose from Morning or Afternoon Options)

September 17



An online academy for all K-12 educators: teachers, teacher-leaders, instructional coaches, and administrators 

As educators, we want all students to learn deeply and well. Yet far too often, students attain only a superficial level of knowledge that fails to prepare them for deeper challenges in school and beyond. Why is this the case? And what can we do about it? 

In this online academy, Jay McTighe and Harvey Silver, authors of ASCD’s bestselling member book Teaching for Deeper Learning, will guide you through the what, why, and how of deep learning: What it is, why it’s so critical to student success, and how to make it work in your classroom, school, or district. Together, Jay and Harvey will show you how to raise student achievement and close learning gaps by establishing a deep learning culture—one that teaches all students the skills they need to build deep understanding of important content and transfer their learning to the real world. 

Sessions Overview

SESSION ONE FOCUS: How to frame learning around core concepts and essential questions. 

SESSIONS TWO AND THREE FOCUS: Practical and proven tools that promote deep understanding of classroom content and develop critical thinking skills needed for real-world success. All tools modeled during the session are widely applicable across grade levels and content areas and easy to integrate into current lessons and units. 

SESSION FOUR FOCUS: How to “put it all together”: Designing lessons, units, and curriculum sequences that ensure deep learning. 

This innovative online academy will include breakout sessions and opportunities to design lessons collaboratively.
