A conversation with veteran educator Michael Simkins

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

There's an old saying, "Everything old is new again."  In the United States, with the adoption by most states of the Common Core Standards, the pendulum seems to be swinging again, this time from a myopic focus on direct instruction to openness to any and all instructional approaches that will accomplish the ultimate goal of college and career readiness.  There are a host of teaching models that got lost during the "No Child Left Behind" years that are a perfect match for the new standards.  Join this conversation with veteran educator Michael Simkins in which he'll share some of his favorite teaching moments and how they might play out in today's context, infused with relevant technology.
