Carol Ann Tomlinson presents: Dreaming Big Enough Dreams for the Needs of Our Students
The #1 job of schools is to guide young people in developing the intellectual, affective, and social competence and confidence necessary to lead productive and satisfying lives both now and in the future that awaits them. Sadly, there are many indicators that we have failed many students in ways that place the goal out of their reach. We live in a particularly perilous time right now, but perilous times are also moments of great opportunity for change. This keynote will present a challenge to re-think several key aspects of how we think about teaching, learning, and leading that could quite literally make a world of difference in outcomes for students. Making the shift would require big dreams and wise planning on the part of educators. The reward would be many more pathways to possibility for the kids we teach.
