Two Granbury ISD curriculum coordinators presented an informative session at the Texas Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) this week in Corpus Christi.
Presenting the session entitled “Elementary Success in the High School Classroom” were Kendall Condit, coordinator for at-risk programs, and Heather Dollins, coordinator for English and science programs.
“In preparing students for career and college readiness, along with 21st century learning, modern education has often forgotten the importance of critical thinking, work ethic, communication and collaboration. Educators have focused on winning the game of assessment and accountability,” they said. “The session provided results from current high school students on preferred learning opportunities and ways to maximize student engagement while instilling the importance of soft skills that are used daily in elementary school classrooms.”
ASCD is the global leader in developing and delivering innovative programs, products and services that empower educators to support the success of each learner. The large international organization includes superintendents, principals, teachers, professors and advocates.
The ASCD is also comprised of 58 affiliate organizations, including the Texas chapter that focused on state issues and educators.
