Deadline: March 15, 2017
The 2017 Conference on Acceleration in Developmental Education is approaching. This year, as always, we are eager to see engaging proposals for 60-minute Breakout Sessions dealing with acceleration in developmental math, writing, integrated reading/writing, and TESOL. We welcome proposals from schools that have been engaged in this work for years as well as schools new to acceleration. We are looking for data-rich proposals, proposals that focus on pedagogy, and those that are culturally relevant.
We will give priority to dynamic, interesting, and thought-provoking proposals that actively involve the audience. Examples may include successful units or lesson plans, strategies for teaching adult learners, and ways to address non-cognitive issues. We are looking for proposals on all aspects of acceleration in math, reading, writing and TESOL, from start-up to scale-up, as well as proposals rich in data that focus on program assessment and student success.
