Message From EWA's Public Editor
What do you get when you take 11 top-notch experts and give them each
12 minutes to talk about "Tomorrow's Teacher: Path to Prestige and
Effectiveness"? The answer? One of the most successful EWA National
Seminar sessions we have ever had!
If you weren’t able to make it to our 65th National Seminar last week at
the University of Pennsylvania, be sure to stop by Ed Beat, where over
the next month we’ll be posting guest blogs drawn from many of the
sessions, as well as multimedia content including videos, podcasts and
photos from around the conference. We'll start sharing our "Tomorrow's
Teacher" videos in June.
Right now you can catch up with great blogs about school violence, improving charter school quality and college success for urban high school grads, with much more to follow.
Join Our Upcoming Webcast on Latino Education
What is happening in classrooms as the numbers of Latino
students boom? How are students’ academic and linguistic abilities affecting
their college ambitions? How are undocumented students struggling to achieve
their college aspirations?
To answer these questions and more about the changing
educational landscape for Latino students in higher ed, EWA is partnering with
the College Board and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists to bring
you a live webcast on May 31 at 6 p.m. EDT. Join us at latinoedbeat.org for Educating
Latinos: The Game-Changing Stories Behind the Numbers.
