Summer Story Ideas for Education Reporters
Summer break is upon us, and there’s a host of compelling stories to cover on the education beat while school is out.
In this EWA webinar, a summer learning expert explains the role summer break plays in widening achievement gaps, particularly for rural students, students with disabilities, and English-language learners. Also, the webinar highlights examples of innovative work afoot to provide students with powerful summer learning experiences.
Plus, an education editor offers fresh takes on summer learning stories, including efforts to change the focus of summer school from remediation to hands-on enrichment.
Don’t miss this opportunity to add story ideas to your notebook and dig into the summer learning data.
