A Guide to Selecting and Implementing High Quality Instructional Materials by Janise Lane and Karen Venditti
Attendees will hear about the journey of two district leaders as they led the adoption of high quality instructional materials. Janise and Robin will have a candid conversation about the successes experienced and challenges faced throughout the selection, adoption, and beginning stages of launching the use of HQIM. Attendees will develop leader and participant insight into how to build buy-in and lead change, how to build the capacity of their teams, how to leverage teachers as leaders, how to navigate challenging situations, and how to celebrate successes in ways that continue to move the work forward. Attendees will leave with skills and knowledge that is highly practical, actionable, and applicable to their own work in schools.
