Education is still reeling from the impacts of COVID-19. The rapid shift to virtual learning was a necessity and, like always, educators rose to the occasion like they always do even though training in this area didn’t really exist at scale. A few years later, we are beginning to get an idea of the most pressing issue at hand, which is learning recovery. During coaching visits across the country, educators share the difficulty of having classrooms of students where the majority are at different grade levels. So how do we begin to address this issue?
Knowing where kids are and then developing strategies to meet their respective needs is one of the most effective ways to close learning gaps post-pandemic. While the challenge is real, rotational models can stem the tide. In this piece of #EDvice I unpack this strategy and how it can be easily implemented in K-12 classrooms.
Success using rotational models relies on maximizing available class time, understanding sound pedagogy, and leveraging actionable data. Below are some resources I created to help educators with effective implementation.
At the International Center for Leadership in Education (ICLE), we have developed research and evidence-based professional learning solutions to scale personalized strategies that are integral for learner success in a post-pandemic world.
