Elliot Washor, co-founder of Big Picture Learning and the Met School in Providence, Rhode Island, and Carlos Morena, CARLOS MORENO, national director of Big Picture Learning, will lead a full-day session on student engagement. This learning is planned from 9 a.m-3 p.m. Oct. 21 at Buena Vista University in Storm Lake.

Look in the eyes of your students as you teach, meet them in the halls or see them at the grocery store. Each student is counting on you to motivate, inspire and prepare him/her for life after graduation. This session offers a bold strategy for revitalizing schools and for graduating and preparing young people for success in their future learning and work. This ‘leaving to learn’ strategy is driven by our image of that future. Our goal is not merely to graduate every student, but to prepare graduates who are uncommonly ready for success in their workplaces, their families, and their communities.

Fee is $100 per person with a $500 district maximum for up to 8 members.
