New SCORE School Weekly Webinar Sessions

SCORE is organizing a national weekly one-hour virtual conference, based on the “This Week in SCORE” (TWIS) curricular tool.

Sessions began on Wednesday, May 13 at 8 PM ET and will occur every Wednesday at 8 PM ET through the summer and possibly beyond. Leading experts in the weekly TWIS topic will provide an overview, discuss high-yield teaching points, and take questions from the live audience via chat.
