Professional development happens every year for every teacher, and yet there’s broad agreement among educators that it very often misses the mark. In some places, teachers are turning their districts’ attention to longstanding blind spots in PD, and helping make training more targeted and meaningful. In this virtual event, Education Week reporters and their expert guests will look at some of the most prevalent problems with and oversights in PD, and offer ideas for fixing them.

Identifying the ‘Blind Spots’ in Literacy Professional Development for Today’s Teachers
As more districts realize a large percentage of their students are not succeeding in reading, teacher preparation is at the forefront of industry discussion. Where are the gaps in professional development for literacy educators? How can concerned educators make a difference for teachers and students alike? Join this eye-opening discussion where respected experts will review the “blind spots,” discuss the importance of a structured literacy approach, and share ways administrators can fill the gaps and prepare their preK–8 teachers to help every student learn to read and reach new levels of lifetime literacy success.
Final Reporter Wrap-up
Education Week can provide 1 hour of Professional Development credit for online summits if the educator attends live. A Certificate of Completion will be emailed to you shortly after the summit has ended. On demand viewing of a summit cannot be used for credit. As with all professional development hours delivered, Education Week recommends each educator verify ahead of the online summit that the content will qualify for professional development in your school, district, county, or state with your supervisor, human resources professional, and/or principal or superintendent’s office.
