But what are the most effective strategies for expanding learning time, and how can schools make the most of this important resource?
This webinar explored some of the answers proposed by a new National Center on Time and Learning study called Time Well Spent: Eight Powerful Practices of Successful Expanded-Time Schools. Participants learrned how highly successful schools have expanded time for their students and teachers. School leaders from three of the 30 schools featured in the report spoke first-hand about choices they have made in designing a successful expanded time school.
