A good teacher knows that his/her students are responsible for their own grades. So why aren’t the students also responsible for doing the majority of the work? News flash, they are!

Come hear how middle school spanish teacher, Alyssa Katz, has transformed her teaching. The culture in our classroom has shifted to students unlocking the answers, learning to problem solve, seeing their full potential, and realizing that they already have all the tools they need to be successful. You will hear her many strategies for building self-directed students who are engaged, motivated and actively LEARNING! This session is supported by Jennifer Beine Bowden.
