CONFERENCE INFORMATION

This action-packed, edge of your seat Summer Leadership Conference will focus on the latest research on student engagement, student thinking, and how to design classrooms that promotes deep thinking and understanding in the 21st Century Classroom. By practicing what we preach, audience members will take part in an “out of your seat and on your feet” experience that models the brain rules for deep thinking and understanding: simple to complex, concrete to abstract, and students only remember what they think about. Participants will examine research by John Hattie, Jim Knight, Graham Nuthall, Eric Jensen, James Nottingham, and John Almarode. This workshop will address classroom and student engagement in a cognitively rich environment making sure that students remain engaged in relevant content, regardless of the medium.  Topics include goals, learning intentions, success criteria, meaning making, opportunities to respond, and effective feedback.
