Thursday, August 2, 10:30-12:00, SUB Ballroom D, Theme: Practice

The U.S. Department of Education presently funds the Education Innovation and Research (EIR) Program and previously the Investing in Innovation (i3) grant program to encourage and support innovative approaches to improving student achievement in U.S. schools. The program prioritizes a variety of topics ranging from college and career readiness, to social and emotional learning (SEL), to working with rural districts and schools.  Three grantees with proven results share brief overviews of their work and then discuss the commonalities across their work that created the positive results for students.  All grantees work in secondary schools; two projects are national in scale with positive results, and one is regional (Appalachian) and is new.  The grantees' areas of focus are writing, literacy, and SEL.
