May 2021 Upcoming Events & Announcements

Summer Graduate Profile Workshops

Join us for one of the consecutive 3-day workshops to build community with other educators, and to imagine the possibilities when we center systems of education around the skills that young people need in order to thrive.

Participants will explore the value of having a Graduate Profile, develop and define a draft, and then learn how to implement and measure it once they take it back to their school, district, etc. These workshops will be led by Deeper Learning Coach, Abby Benedetto.

We are also offering an additional option for a direct consultation with Abby after the session of your choice. This would be a great time to get your team’s questions answered and customized suggestions

August 24-26th, 2021 ‣ 9am-12pm PT/12-3pm ET

Designed to Thrive Workshop Series
This three-part workshop series asks, “What kind of performance assessment experiences would we create to ensure that learners, especially those farthest from opportunity, thrive when we operationalize our current vision/profile of a graduate?”

Participants will explore the different features of high quality performance assessment (HQPA) and design a prototype of a performance assessment experience that provides evidence of student learning/thinking of essential competencies. The series concludes with participants iterating on that prototype after centering the lived experience of a marginalized student your system may serve, and reflecting on the changes needed to ensure that ALL students thrive in their performance assessment system.

This workshop series is facilitated by Deeper Learning Coaches, Alcine Mumby and Abby Benedetto.

Aug 4th, 11th & 18th ‣ 9:30am-12:30pm PT / 12:30-3:30pm ET
