Second Equity in Motion Practitioner Convening


  • The Roosevelt New Orleans 130 Roosevelt Way New Orleans, LA 70112

From EdTrust.org:

Students can do no better than the assignments we give them. But what makes a rich, high-quality assignment? And what tools can teachers, instructional coaches, school leaders, and curriculum directors use to ensure that’s what students are receiving?

Join us in New Orleans July 18-20th for our second Equity in Motion convening and take on these critical questions. This convening will feature more learning from assignments in English language arts, social studies, science, and a new focus on mathematics!

Over two days in the historic French Quarter, and alongside practitioners from across the country:

  • Dig deep into Ed Trust’s process of assignment analysis, with real examples, guidance, and peer collaboration;
  • Examine and reflect on your own assignments through guided- and peer-conversation using our assignment analysis guides. The literacy guide was a hit at our last convening and the math guide will be released at the convening in July.
  • Take home ready-to-use tools to adapt this process and advance learning in your own building or district, so that all students are getting the kinds of rich, high-quality, engaging assignments that are so central to the spirit of college- and career-ready standards — and so critical to student learning.

And … of course, take some time to wander the fabled streets and experience the Creole cooking and live music for which the city is famous!

Bring a team from your school or district or come on your own. Programming is particularly tailored for grade 2-12 teachers, school leaders, and district or state staff focused on learning and instruction in ELA, science, social studies, and mathematics.
