Building Bridges: Communities of Practice from K-16

Session 3
Tom Woodward, Tim Stahmer, Jeff McClurken, Tim Owens, Martha Burtis

There is a cycle of blame and recrimination between Higher Ed and K-12, yet rarely do we come together to talk about the trajectory of learning across these two worlds. This session will develop practical ideas about how to develop these conversations in our own schools and communities.

Teaching Critical Thinking and Writing Online

Session 4
Ted Bongiovanni, Lisa Springer, Evan Friss

We seek to connect with other educators who are teaching writing at a distance or using eReaders. What worked in your classes? How did you collaborate across time and space? What are the best methods for working with digital texts in high schools?

Session 5
Chris Fancher

To create meaningful PBL units it helps to enlist friends and colleagues. If they are not in your area of expertise they bring a fresh perspective. We will discuss creating a PBL unit while brainstorming with a topic and standards given to us from one of the participants.
