Rethinking Schools continues to ask the hard questions about standardized tests, poverty, and race.
Research, Inquiry, Collaboration Strand
In partnership with the Oregon Association of School Librarians (OASL), OCTE invites you to sessions that focus on questioning strategies, authoritative databases, and how to align curriculum in your building, complementing and reinforcing content.

SPED, TAG, and ELL students appear in general education Language Arts classes. Pick up new ideas on how to differentiate for these unique populations.
Common Core Student Standards are here. Smarter Balance testing begins during the 2014-2015 school year.
