DescriptionThis workshop can be taken as a stand-alone workshop. It also serves as part of the New Teacher Academy and the Academic Literacy Project Year 2 series.

Dr. Marcia Tate is a world renowned educational author of the book, “Worksheets Don’t Grow Dendrites” where she challenges many of the traditional ways in which students have learned in a school setting.  Marcia has developed a list of 20 strategies to help engage students in the classroom. Participants will experience content-specific ways to engage students’ brains while those students master rigorous curricular standards.
