The role of the educator in creating of Cultures of Thinking with Dr. Ron Ritchhart

Join other CoT educators for a one day seminar at Oakland Schools, with Dr. Ron Ritchhart, principal investigator of the Cultures of Thinking Project. Like the Community Seminars, Dr. Ritchhart will introduce the big ideas and research principles that are guiding significant changes in school culture all around Oakland County. He will share stories from the field, including our own local classrooms and schools. This seminar will focus more specifically, on the role of the educator in shaping the 8 cultural forces to create places where thinking is valued, made visible, and actively promoted. This is an excellent opportunity for teachers and administrators in schools already striving to become a culture of thinking and would like more of the staff to participate in a seminar with the lead researcher.

Participants:

This is a introduction to Cultures of Thinking for all educators - those already on a CoT journey and those getting started.
