Often in education we talk about the “what.” What we are teaching, what kids are making, or what we are assessing. But it’s not about what we teach as much as it is about what students learn. So HOW do you teach to make the learning for keeps? This Deep Dive is for teachers, instructional coaches, and school leaders who want to focus on developing “the how” of teaching for deeper learning and equity. We believe that teaching is a craft, and like any other craft, experiencing and reflecting on the methods of a master is essential to developing one’s own practice.

In this Deep Dive you will get to do just that as you experience a highly developed, research-based method of teaching that has you working collaboratively to solve a real, community based challenge. Every day we ask our students to take risks, make mistakes, and reflect on their progress. In this workshop you will be asked to do the same, developing a greater sense of empathy for what we ask of our students and leaving better prepared to support them through the messy process.

From culture building to collaborative problem solving. From research methods to communication skills. You will get a sample experience what it is like to be a 21st century problem solver tasked with creating a solution to a problem that doesn’t have one right answer. But of course we know that experience is not enough for you to leave with learning that lasts. Built in time for reflection will help you identify practices that are critical to developing the culture, skills, and knowledge that are essential to the learning process and takeaways you can apply in your classroom or school.
