Visible Learning: What's It All About?

Room #: GVHS B 122

Kris LaFave and Beth Murphy

What is Visible Learning? Let's take a close look at John Hattie's work that involved millions of students and represents the largest ever evidence-based research into what actually works best to improve student learning. We will take time to discuss his findings and come up with ways we can use them to help our own students. What will help students learn the most? What has a minimal impact? The answers might surprise you!

Global Citizenship Brainstorm Session

Room #: GVHS B 120

Marc Bertrando

This session is designed to brainstorm the types of adult behaviors that administrators, teachers, and support staff can adopt as they model for our students the key understandings of global citizenship. We will discuss ideas to advance community service, cultural awareness and appreciation, social and emotional wellness, and systemic character education. Ultimately, it's the Global Citizenship Committee's vision that adults modeling these behaviors will be one more element that will prepare students for success in a rapidly changing global community.

Participants DO NOT have to be part of the Global Citizenship Committee to participate. The more perspectives the better!!!
