AASL National Conference & Exhibition 2017

Ferry Master or Bridge Builder? Student-Empowered Teaching

Nov 10, 2017 11:20am ‐ Nov 10, 2017 12:20pm

Standard: $6.99
Members: $0.00


Are you a ferry or a bridge? Both take people across water. The ferry operator is in charge, releasing travelers from responsibility; a bridge puts travelers in complete control. Do you and your teachers carry students through learning, telling them when/how to do tasks? Do you deliver lectures or create structures to engage and empower students? Learn about K-12 strategies including problem-based, felt-need tasks; self-assessment; non-negotiable lessons; and optional small-group mini-lessons. Become a bridge builder!
