A wide variety of school and classroom models enable 1) deeper student thinking instead of just recall and regurgitation, 2) student empowerment instead of bored passivity, and 3) authentic, meaningful, community-embedded work instead of isolated, artificial classroom assignments. From passion projects to course redesign to whole-scale school restructuring, we will walk through these organizational models together and discuss which might be feasible options for your school system(s). Participants in this session will get concrete, inside looks at schools around the world that are empowering students in amazing ways. Come and learn about the Colorado schools that are leading the way!
