The Institute for Learning launches its one-day regional institutes in an effort to increase the accessibility of the Institute’s research and best practice techniques on what it takes to have students achieve. Through the content areas of English language arts, mathematics, and science the IFL distils its successful professional development sessions offered to school districts nationwide into one-day institutes designed to help educators get more out of their students. When teachers choose cognitively demanding tasks and purposefully ask questions they push for rigorous thinking and rich classroom conversations. Each content area approaches this challenge through content specific tools and practices generating inspiration and providing practical takeaways to apply in the classroom tomorrow!
