Teaching and learning require a 21st Century mindset! As you search for ways to ensure all students learn at high levels, we challenge you to broaden your thinking. Come to the 2015 MCCSC Learning Summit…It’s a KNOW-BRAINER!
Dr. Laura Riffel will offer ways to deal with problem behaviors in classrooms. How can student behavior be managed so the focus remains on learning? How do you KNOW the best intervention for students at risk?
Ms. Marilee Sprenger joins us on Wednesday to take an in-depth look at Wiring the Brain for Reading. What do we KNOW about the brain and how reading works. How is technology affecting the structure, function, and development of the brain? Later, Ms. Sprenger continues to engage us and our use of 21st Century with her session on technology in the classroom and how technology works with our student’s brains.
Mr. Rick Wormeli sends an outstanding message on teaching students perseverance and resilience, both essential 21st Century skills. What do you need to KNOW to cultivate student resilience in your classroom? Tenacity is a virtue and we KNOW that “Stick-to-itiveness” is one step closer to maturity. Often we KNOW what we need to do but it takes courage to do it. At the final session, Mr. Wormeli will help you KNOW how to nurture bravery.
