Description

Graduation: A Team Effort (GATE) Equity webinars help growth minded educators and education advocates to learn from Washington districts who are closing opportunity gaps. Using OSPI data and experience from the field, GATE Equity webinars reveal the systems that drive success, an equity focus, and the key strategies that are getting students to graduation. 

We offer two distinct experiences that both feature Washington schools doing amazing work! GATE Equity Webinar 101 sessions, in the morning, are based on foundational best practices. GATE 201 Webinar sessions, in the afternoon, focus on a specific strategy from our monthly theme that you can apply to your context. Each webinar is an hour and a half long this year as we’ve added time for our audience to meet in small groups and apply the content to their own context.

10 A.M.

101: How do schools prioritize and maintain connections with all students and families this fall?

Are you wondering what attendance will look like this fall? Join us to get a quick look at OSPI fall attendance guidance and resources. We’ll have Mount Baker School District with us to talk about how they’re adapting to remote learning and to share their approach to contacting and connecting with students. We’re adding time to our sessions this year so you can learn and connect with colleagues statewide and share your ideas in breakout rooms. 

3 P.M.

201: What are culturally responsive ways to increase student engagement in remote learning?

Do you want to create an engaging and culturally responsive remote learning environment in  your classroom? This webinar is geared toward teachers who want to explore some of the big ideas from the book Culturally Responsive Education in the Classroom: An Equity Framework for Pedagogy. You’ll get an opportunity to discuss how to adapt these ideas to your own context and learn from educators across the state in breakout rooms. We hope you’ll bring fellow educators along to join in the conversation.
