Breakfast & Breakout Sessions

CORE Collaborative Inquiry: A Mathematics Learning System That Teachers Want and Students Need

Sponsor-Hosted Breakfast Session
Tuesday, March 29, 2022 | 7:00–8:15 a.m. PT

Wondering what it looks like to integrate inquiry-driven professional learning, continuous improvement, and equity-centered mathematics practices? In this breakfast session, attendees will learn how CORE is building professional learning routines that grow teacher efficacy to foster student belonging, identity, and achievement in their mathematics classrooms. In addition, they will hear how teachers are learning to utilize peer-observation data to identify evidence-based instructional practices and how teachers are implementing these practices with their students to improve learning outcomes.

Evidence-Based Root Cause Analysis for Statewide Early Literacy Improvement

Tuesday, March 29, 2022 | 12:15–1:15 p.m. PT

In 2021, as part of a three-year statewide effort, the Sacramento County Office of Education partnered with Pivot Learning to develop a set of interconnected supports to address the needs of California’s 73 lowest-performing schools in TK–3 literacy. Together, we introduced foundational models and professional learning that built the schools’ knowledge, capacity, and buy-in while engaging in a process of root cause analysis and needs assessment culminating in fully funded literacy action plans. In this session, we will share how we built knowledge of evidence-based literacy practices, guided teams to reflect on current practices and data, and engaged in root cause analysis from an asset-based lens. We will conclude with implications for adapting and replicating this model in other contexts.
