Additional details will be provided when you RSVP for the event.
This session explores the ways in which some of our students struggle and how not to inadvertently contribute to their difficulties. We begin with our commitment to reach and engage all students. Then, we explore practical ways to increase curiosity, represent concepts in multiple ways, and invite students to demonstrate what they have learned in different ways.
