A-List is thrilled to have the opportunity to participate in the MENA Teacher Summit. An initiative of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) Connected Community in the GCC, the Teacher Summit seeks to improve teaching and learning and connect education professionals throughout the MENA region to the resources provided by ASCD. The event is an opportunity for American Curriculum teachers to engage and learn with renowned educators and scholars. Summit topics will include best practices in leadership, data, curriculum, and English Language Arts and Math Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards implementation.
A-List president and founder, Scott Farber, will be presenting among a well-rounded group of classroom teachers, department heads, school administrators, and program coordinators; he will host a workshop for educators about “Cultivating Grit and Non-Cognitive Skills through the Common Core and SAT/ACT.” The presentation will explore how to integrate instructional practices focused on what an expanding body of research indicates is necessary to improve persistence and success rates once students leave high school.
We couldn’t be more thrilled to have the opportunity to partake in the MENA Teacher Summit with our team in the Middle East. We look forward to meeting other educational professionals and sharing our knowledge to help more students in the region become college ready!
