Will one of the topics be assessment of student learning, of curriculum programs, of teachers? If so, consider sending a team of teachers to the
Conference on English Leadership Institute on Critical Issues
July 17 – 19 2014 at Elmhurst College, near Chicago.
The issue this year is ASSESSMENT/EVALUATION and will be addressed in three general strands: (1) Using Formative and Summative Assessments to Improve Teaching, (2) Assessment of Teachers Evaluation, and (3) Assessment of Curriculum Programs. CEL invites teams and individuals eager to explore and plan concrete strategies to implement right away. In addition to daily keynote speakers on important aspects of assessment, the Institute will feature focused, collaborative work with literacy leaders from across the country.
