"Leading Students to Learn"
Today, more than ever, students need to acquire not only curriculum content, but also workplace skills such as team work, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. Powerful results in learning are possible when the teacher becomes a “facilitator” of learning rather than a “sage on the stage.” This presentation will explore ways to increase hands-on learning in the core curriculum, resulting in higher levels of thinking and increased academic achievement for today’s students.
