How do new licensure and student 

assessments affect you?

Presented by Dr. Kate Zilla

Tuesday, February 9, 2016


McCracken Middle School

8000 East Prairie Road

Skokie, Illinois

New teachers and their students are now required to pass a different kind of 'high stakes' test than those many of us have known.  What challenges and opportunities do assessments such as the edTPA and the PARCC bring?  How might these assessments affect how you work with and in the school, and how do you prepare your students to succeed?  Come and find out!

Dr. Kate Zilla is an associate professor at National Louis University in the graduate special education program.  She has worked for a number of years as a university professor and special and general education teacher.  Her current work involves preparing graduate teacher candidates in special education, and research in the areas of co-teaching and service learning with those with disabilities.
