The Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce - January 14, 2014

Our January session was at the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce. We dove in quickly to learn about the art of teaching. We talked about talent and the 23 themes of teacher talent. We focused on the 4 themes that most involve the 3 optimizers for instruction: speed, recall, and transfer. These themes are connection, personal relevance, locale memory, and mental models. Our closing activity was one I can go back and use with my grade level. The building blocks helped us reflect on our learning using sentence starters.
