CLC wants to help, so we are bringing in a nationally-renowned educator who will arm you with skills, techniques, and resources that you can bring back to your school, use with your students, and share with your colleagues as well.

  • Formative Assessment Tips to Elevate Student Voice


All of the content Dr. Burns will share is applicable to both in-person and digital learning, so it will help you whatever your teaching situation this year.
