My first day at ASCD’s annual conference was excellent. I am still sifting through the day in my Evernote notebook. I have, however, looked forward to tomorrow’s sessions a bit and here are the ones that have grabbed my eye:
Session 2162 — Overcoming Deficit Thinking: Strategies for Working with Low Income Students 8:30-9:00am
Session 2245 — Leading the Way Toward Effective Project-Based Learning 1:00-2:30pm
Session 2323 — Connecting Teacher Evaluation to Student Achievement in Nontested Grades 3:00-4:30pm
I have a lot to reflect on from today (which I can hopefully do tonight). This is my first ASCD conference, and so far I am really enjoying the conversation as well as the star treatment that ASCD has given us as press. I had breakfast and engaging conversation with colleagues followed by a wonderful conversation with the inspiring Outstanding Young Educators as I ate lunch provided by ASCD.
I hope to be able to reflect and deconstruct the day before the next day starts!
