Learning Forward Colorado Summit
April 5, 2013
Approximately 24 Professional Learning Leaders spent two hours networking and engaging in thoughtful dialogue about leading supervision and developing communities of thought. Please take a look at Judi Herm’s “Thinking Maps“ (pdf) about the content and how individuals might organize their thinking around these topics. The maps show a variety of ways to think , comprehend, and internalize new and complex information. Thank you so much, Judi, for sharing your cognitive processing.
Watch for announcements about future summits!
They can add so much value to your work!

How do we create schools that are welcoming and productive learning environments for all?

Articles might cover topics such as inclusion of students with special needs in mainstream classrooms, increasing instructional rigor for English Learner students, addressing implicit bias among teachers and/or students, and improving social and emotional learning strategies. Priority will be given to articles that focus on building educators’ capacity for ongoing practices rather than short-term intervention programs.
