Journey to the Land of Oz: Teaching Thinking With Heart and Soul

About This Course

This course was developed for teachers who see test scores whip in like a tornado—leaving them feeling as if they’ve been suddenly transported to a brand new world; this world is definitely not a place they want to call home.

This presentation takes a humorous, yet thoughtful look at the next steps districts must take to build a thinking models for students.

Participants examine systemic changes that successful schools are making to encourage change in student achievement and higher test scores.

Special focus is placed on the research of Marzano, Pickering, and Pollack, and the work of Bloom and Associates.
