The next Great Lakes TURN event is scheduled for 2-3 November at Northern Illinois University Naperville Conference Center, 1120 E. Diehl Rd, Naperville, IL 60563. The conference will focus on policies, programs and practices that both support and challenge the social, emotional and academic learning needs of all students. Michael Fullan’s Coherence Framework will guide and assist teams in their efforts to establish shared goals and accountability as well as building capacity to deepen student learning through pedagogical practices. The agenda will feature local, state and national examples of promising practices, emerging case studies, and policies that focus on this joint work.
The GL TURN teams represent union & teacher leaders, school & district administrators and board members who are working jointly to plan and implement teacher evaluation systems and college and career ready standards to improve teaching and learning.
