The CUSD Lecture Series is a professional learning community that invites thought leaders to CUSD around an array of topics within an inclusive learning domain. The lectures seek to build our capacity individually and collectively as we engage a diverse student population.
This year, we are proud to be sponsored by our corporate and community partners: Arizona State University, Intel, Scholastic, Chandler Education Association (CEA), and State Farm.
Due to COVID-19, the 2021-2022 lecture series will be offered through a virtual platform until we are able to gather in person. Questions during the lecture will be sent to Dr. Adama Sallu and will be answered during the Q & A section of the lecture.
Register for 2021-2022 CUSD Lecture Series #1 - Getting it Right: Building a Diverse Classroom for an Inclusive Learning Community
Speaker Bio: Mr. Michael Haggen, Senior VP & Chief Academic Officer, Scholastic
Research shows that reading is paramount to academic success. That's why building classroom and school libraries that incorporate diverse perspectives, is an essential component of successful learning outcomes for all students. So, the question remains – how can we provide mirrors and windows in classrooms and school libraries that ignite the joy of reading for all students? The session will focus on research on the power of independent reading through the provision of mirrors and windows. Join us as we explore a transformative framework that uses literacy to increase learning outcomes for all students, one book at a time.
