Doug Fisher, Nancy Frey and the educators of the Health Sciences High and Middle College (HSHMC) know teachers want to learn and apply the instructional routines that have the biggest impact on student learning. These practices are “visible” for teachers and students to see, because their purpose has been made clear, they are implemented at the right moment in a student’s learning and their effect is tangible. Doug, Nancy and the HSHMC teachers will lead an examination of what makes great teachers great, and show how educators at all grade levels and all levels of experience are taking intentional steps toward enhanced professional practice.

Join us to get a close-up look at what intentional and targeting teaching is and what successful teachers do to:

• Plan with purpose  •  Cultivate a learning climate  •  Instruct with intention  •  Assess with a system  •  Impact student learning

CESA 6 makes every effort to accommodate basic dietary needs such as vegetarian, gluten free and basic food allergies. Because of the number of meals served and the number of items used each day, along with food product changes from our food vendors, we cannot guarantee that every allergen in the food served will be identified and labeled. Guests concerned with food allergies must be aware of this risk. CESA 6 does not assume liability for adverse reactions to food consumed or items one may come into contact with while eating at a CESA 6 event. To better serve our guests with dietary restrictions or allergies, please go into your myQuickReg account and update the special accommodations section. Notice of a special dietary need must be made in advance of the event.
