Feedback form is now closed.
There is nothing quite like the magic of a really good seminar. It feels a little like an orchestra performance, or that moment in a jam session when everyone really finds the groove, or a seamless baseball play that gets the runner on third home. Whatever the analogy, if you’ve been a part of or have witnessed ‘THE seminar,’ you know what we mean. And if not, you are in for a treat my friend.

In this session, participants will engage in a mini-seminar on John Taylor Gatto (a pleasantly controversial piece to serve as a seminar text) and then workshop through techniques for facilitating seminars with students. This session will be co-lead by students from Avanti High School (Olympia, WA) and a few of their teachers. Participants will be given time to share and exchange their own ideas and experiences with seminars in the classroom.
