They are taking the many lessons learned in the last quarter of this school year and using those lessons to plan for a strong, if uncertain, year ahead. Join us for an exploration of how coaches are traversing the challenges of distance professional learning, remaining connected to the teachers they support, and applying their expertise in accelerating teacher learning.

Deadline: The Learning Professional, October 2020 Article Submissions

June 15

How do we create schools that are welcoming and productive learning environments for all? This issue will explore the role of professional learning in ensuring that every student feels safe, supported, and successful at school. Articles might cover topics such as inclusion of students with special needs in mainstream classrooms, increasing instructional rigor for English Learner students, addressing implicit bias among teachers and/or students, and improving social and emotional learning strategies. Priority will be given to articles that focus on building educators’ capacity for ongoing practices rather than short-term intervention programs.
