Educators from all content areas are invited to attend the Connecticut Conference on Leading Student-Centered Learning Through Effective Questioning with presenter Dan Rothstein on Monday, March 27, 2017, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., at EASTCONN’s Conference Center, 376 Hartford Turnpike, Hampton.
In partnership with EASTCONN, Rothstein, of The Right Question Institute, will lead a day-long session on best practices in questioning, during which educators will learn a simple strategy for teaching students how to take charge of their own learning by asking, refining and using their own questions to drive learning. Participants will work closely with Rothstein, co-author of the best-selling book, Make Just One Change: Teach Students to Ask Their Own Questions. Educators will explore how this questioning strategy is stimulating student curiosity, increasing student engagement, promoting deeper learning and helping to build democratic habits of mind.
Workshop fee of $125 per person includes breakfast and lunch. Fee for district teams of 3 or more is $99 per person. Register by March 20. Contact Paula Hanlon to register your team, at email@example.com, or 860-455-1589.
EASTCONN will initiate, support and facilitate partnerships, collaborations and regional solutions that are responsive to the needs of all learners through exemplary programs, products and services.
