If we teach in the way that human brains learn, both students and their teachers will thrive! Making Schools Work, written collectively by a team of classroom teachers, administrators, parents, and learning scientists led by New York Times–bestselling authors Kathy Hirsh-Pasek and Roberta Golinkoff, aligns evidence from the learning sciences on how and what students need to learn with classroom practice, pre-K–12.
This webinar for educational policy leaders, school administrators, teachers, learning scientists, and parents will cut through the noise about what's wrong with schools and talk instead about what we can do right. The authors will present the theory and playful learning principles behind Making Schools Work. Attendees will learn how to create an education for all children that is culturally responsive, inclusive, effective, and fun—without investing in new curricula.
Making Schools Work is not an ordinary book about re-imagining education. It is a theory, a plan, an implementation strategy, and a series of case studies to show you just how to change your educational mindset.
The webinar will be followed by a Q&A and a giveaway.
