Transforming Student Achievement Through a District-Wide Approach to Common Instructional Knowledge, Language, and Tools

This dynamic keynote speech will expose participants to a finite set of high-yield, actionable, measurable, and replicable practices that have expeditiously transformed student achievement in urban, suburban, and rural schools/districts from coast to coast. Dr. Dickey delineates processes—balanced by theory and practicality—for aligning daily instruction with the nuanced expectations of the state standards and high-stakes summative assessments necessary to drive and sustain academic achievement in the core content areas.
