Course 3: Listening and Responding Skills | Escuchar y responder

Produced by CADRE, the series includes a webinar that briefly introduces the Working Together Series, companion Facilitator Guide, and other supplemental resources. Instructions for navigating the online learning platform are included. CADRE also provided some possible strategies for how State Education Agencies, Parent Centers and Local Education Agencies can utilize the Series to build local-level capacity.
