Student Voice

We initiated a community radio educational program in San Jose, CA that will help listeners better understand the big picture of education and use it to advocate for improved teaching and learning opportunities for students within San Jose.

We formed a partnership with KCXU 92.7 FM  community radio to create an educational program called Student Voice in San Jose.    You can hear some of our initial radio shows below.  Please use the comments section to identify additional topics that you would like to explore as well as students who might want to participate in one of our radio programs.

Dr. Conrad played a key role in planning and facilitating monthly leadership team meetings where principals and teacher leaders engaged in the careful evaluation of both student outcomes and professional practices.  He created a positive culture of collaborative competition where principals and teacher leaders compared, and learned from the results from their colleagues.  Teams aligned their school improvement initiatives with our comprehensive District. Under Bill’s leadership, school teams developed 6-week action plans as well as a monitoring system to continuously evaluate and improve professional practices and student outcomes.

We collaborated on a professional development plan that involved the remote facilitation (GoToMeeting) of one-hour sessions where Bill used an Explicit Teaching Model to engage teacher leaders in understanding the 5 key early literacy initiatives as well as how to teach and assess these elements within their classrooms. His presentations were always very engaging and he used visualizations that made the 5 key elements easily understandable.  He also supported the teacher leaders in learning how to effectively collaborate with other teachers in teaching and assessing these elements within their classrooms.
