Late March is always fun because it means the start of the K-12 education conference gauntlet. This weekend, Eduflack is out at ASCD’s 2011 Annual Conference in San Francisco. On Saturday, I’ll be leading a session entitled: “Moving Good Ideas to Real Results: Public Engagement and School Improvement.”
The session will focus on a lot of what I write about here on this blog. Advocacy. Social marketing. Changing both thought and action when it comes to school improvement. Along the way, I’ll use specific examples from the field, including my own experiences in “changing the game” when it comes to reading instruction, teacher preparation, STEM, high school improvement, and turnaround schools.
If you’re out in the land of cable cars, Ghirardelli chocolate, and the World Champion Giants this Saturday morning, stop by the 8 a.m. session at the Moscone Center, rooms 250 and 262. If you’re not, and you want more info, just drop me a line and I’ll give you the Cliffnotes version.
