Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

The most important question we as educators can ask ourselves is "The Twenty-Year Question": Twenty years from today, what positive elements will my students still hold with them that will enhance their lives?  We know it will not be the quadratic formula, diagramming a compound sentence, or the year the Magna Carta was written.  So, what elements should be part of our classes and throughout our curriculum to foster intellectual growth among our students?  Here in this presentation, we will suggest some practices of thinking and living that can be incorporated in all of our classes and throughout our curriculum that have the promise to allow our students to become better versions of themselves.
