SYSTEMIC APPROACH TO CLOSING THE GAP
— This session trains participants on using the KASC Gap Closure Toolkit with a multi-part attack on closing achievement gaps. Participants will interact with the contents of the kit and learn to use each piece effectively. The systemic approach of the kit is directed toward changing expectations and attitudes for all shareholders in the community.

GAP CLOSURE TOOLKIT: STRATEGIC APPROACHES FOR SUCCESS
KASC’s toolkit has been developed with research-based, strategic approaches that will:
  • Build the case for the belief that “all brains can learn” 

  • Demystify what actually happens during learning 

  • Attack misinformation about “What is smart?” with facts and relatable learning experiences 

  • Give students tools to be stronger learners 

  • Change beliefs and actions without extensive 
training by focusing on student motivation and 
existing strengths
  • Provide teachers with easy-to-use strategies and resources that can be used immediately
