But wait! There’s more!
Last week, we announced two brand new professional development experiences — an on-demand course to help you develop curiosity about words and phrases in your students and an upcoming live webinar focused on environmental writing and helping students become climate stewards through writing experiences.
But that’s not all!
We’re rounding out 2020 with two more live webinars we can’t wait for you to experience!
Inquiry Workshop: Raising the Level of Talk with Student Collaborators
In this 60-minute session, Noah will share ways to get kids collaborating and having more meaningful conversations around inquiry work. Noah treats his inquiry collaborations like “Lab Meetings” where kids act as sounding boards, skeptical partners, and nudging encouragers. This interactive session will get into lessons you can teach–and coaching approaches you can take–with individuals and small groups. When kids have the tools they need to help each other through the meaningful but difficult work of inquiry-based learning, not only is the teacher freed up to push kids toward even deeper learning, the students in the room become more independent, thoughtful, and engaged learners.
