Bringing Deeper Learning to Scale: What Does It Look Like to Support Traditionally Underserved Students at the School, District and State Levels?

Limited Capacity full

In school districts across the country, deeper learning opportunities are often “saved” for a subset of students—high achievers and students from largely white, middle class suburban communities. In this session, we’ll engage in conversation about how policy, practice, and effective resources can make deeper learning a reality for all students, especially as a means to bring equitable opportunities for traditionally underserved students to engage in deeper learning every day.

Presenters will share concrete examples of what deeper learning looks like in their sphere (e.g., across a district or within schools) and lead a discussion with participants about how policy and practice at the school, district, and state level can provide complementary and reinforcing opportunities for traditionally underserved students to develop deeper learning competencies.
Through this session, participants will:

• Have an opportunity to engage in a frank discussion about the challenges with implementing deeper learning at scale and explore solutions;
• Hear leaders in the field share how they have built deeper learning into their instructional approach;
• Build knowledge and capacity of specific instructional practices employed by leading schools and districts to create and scale up deeper learning opportunities for traditionally underserved student populations;
• Learn strategies to address specific challenges school and district leaders face as they provide opportunities for all students to develop deeper learning competencies, and particularly for those students who traditionally have not had exposure to a curriculum rich in these skills and competencies;
• Build knowledge and capacity of how state and district policy can support or undermine deeper learning to advance equity goals—and where there are limitations;
• Identify recommendations for state and district policymakers that can help bring deeper learning to scale for all students, particularly underserved populations.
