Using Athletics as a Conduit to Success

Session 2
Erin Garvey, Zoe Siswick, + SLA students

SLA softball and girls basketball coaches will lead a conversation about the benefits of athletics, ethic of care in extracurricular activities, and helping students to balance athletics and academics. We will discuss using athletic participation to increase academic performance and improve socio-emotional well-being.

The Effective Hybrid Teacher ~ Models that help students flourish.

Session 5
Gamal Sherif, Bruce Taterka

Hybrid teachers, who spend 1/2 their time in the classroom and 1/2 their time in stewardship of the profession, can help colleagues enrich K-12 education. How can hybrid teachers develop their educational leadership while they are supporting students, collaborating with colleagues, negotiating employment contracts, etc.? Participant recommendations will evolve into an opt-in article for publication.

Session 6
Dave Thomer

Preparing students for citizenship gets less attention these days than it deserves. Let's try to rectify that as we talk about what democracy demands from its citizens. From old-fashioned brainstorming to Google Docs collaboration, we'll build ideas to bring democracy beyond content and into the fabric of our schools.
