Closing Events










We kicked off Connected Educator Month 2015 at the beginning of October. It's hard to believe CEM is coming to an end! Join us for these closing events:

In this web seminar, renowned scholar Les Perelman, who was described in a 2014 Boston Globe article as “the man who killed the SAT,” offers us an inside look at the disturbing things that can happen when we leave essay scoring to the machines, but also what’s possible when we use technology in thoughtful ways to help grow writers.

Equity of educational opportunity is a key civil rights issue. We must find effective ways to hold state and district leaders accountable to their responsibility to provide the resources for teachers and principals to give all students the opportunity to graduate with the skills they need to be successful in college, careers, and civic life. The panelists in this online discussion will share their ideas about what an accountability system of the future might look like.

This final event of Connected Educator Month explores what a theory of ethics might mean for our field, and what implications it might have for the design and implementation of both large-scale and classroom writing assessments.
