In this webinar the recipient of the Texas Elementary Teacher of the Year Award will share strategies that will help teachers meet the academic and socio-emotional needs of students from diverse backgrounds through rigor, relevance and relationships.

In addition, Jillian will share ways in which teachers might develop strong relationships with the families by establishing effective home-school connections.

Objectives

Objectives
•All students deserve access to an education that provides rigor, relevance and meaningful relationships.
•Rigor consists of children working at their levels and holding them accountable; it does not always mean making material more challenging or inaccessible.
•Relevance involves providing instruction that connects to their personal background experiences.
•Relationships allow teachers to apply rigor and relevance effectively and should involve establishing a special rapport with parents.
•Know the strengths and self-concepts of your students.

I picked up some ideas I had not considered before and found out that my campus administrators do quite a few of the " Know your roster" and "Compile stats" for us (teachers).
