R9HSA Solutions Webinar: Data Doesn’t Always Determine Success: Balancing Research and Reality

January 17, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm PST

Free

PRESENTER

Kimberly P. Johnson, Ed.D.

DESCRIPTION

So often, we feel that the only way to gauge success is through what statistics and benchmarks determine. However, the reality is that it takes a great deal of balance between research and the actual steps needed to teach and maintain success in the setting. True teaching requires an understanding of the intersections of race, socio-economics and levels of determination. This webinar will help you develop a balance between teaching and learning in such a way that it will inspire you to create positive interactions within your school and community.

As a product of the Harvard Advanced Educational Leadership Program, Dr. Kimberly P. Johnson, author and educator, will use her own experiences and the experiences of cultural context, to provide practical strategies and activities to participants. Dr. Johnson is a true example of what delving deeper can provide. As a marginalized student who was raised by illiterate grandparents, she has had the opportunity to graduate from some of America’s top universities. As a proud product of the Head Start program, she has an incredible respect for data but also recognizes that it takes more than charts, graphs and assessments to teach our 21st Century learners. Through deeper understanding of learning styles and positive development, this engaging presentation will encourage educators to learn to love to teach again.  The program will focus on some of the following:

  • Using both data and real-life experiences as catalysts to help build learner ability
  • How communication can help leverage the learning process
  • How various types of teaching styles can reinforce the learning scope
  • The benefits of cultural awareness and culturally responsive teaching

If you need a jump start to the new year and would like to be inspired to continue on this amazing educational journey this webinar is for you. Please join us!
