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

Join educators for a full day seminar at Oakland Schools, with Dr. Ron Ritchhart, principal investigator of the Cultures of Thinking Project. 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, of how teachers and students are shaping 8 cultural forces to create places where thinking is valued, made visible, and actively promoted. This seminar is designed for school leaders interested in launching a 3-5 year journey to intentional, cultural change in their schools. It is also a good introduction for educators who are joining a school that is already on the CoT journey and would like a foundational grounding in creating schools where thinking is valued, made visible, and actively promoted.


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