Overview

What do the best teachers do to captivate and motivate students, to help them reach unusually high levels of accomplishment? Participants in this highly interactive workshop will explore and use findings from a fifteen- year inquiry into the practices and insights of highly successful teachers, those people with phenomenal success in helping their students achieve remarkable learning results. The program will emphasize both improving one's teaching and developing ways to share insights with colleagues back home. Enrollment is limited. The workshop will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, June 18, 2014, and end in the early afternoon on Friday, June 20, and will take place in the scenic suburbs of New York City, approximately 12 miles west of Manhattan.
