GENERAL SESSION - TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 11

DEAN SHARESKI
Whatever Happened to Joy?
In a data driven, achievement focused system, does joy in learning matter anymore? Not that these are mutually exclusive but in our attempts to see results we often forget that joy should not be a means to an end but a worthy and important goal on its own. So how do we insure our students experience joy and wonder everyday? Let’s examine some practical ways to be intentional and make our schools places of joy.
   

CLOSING GENERAL SESSION - WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 12

JOHN DRAPER
Crucial Conversations About America’s Schools
For decades elected officials, business leaders, the general public, parents, and even school employees have been fed a steady diet of warnings about “declining schools”.  Dr. John Draper steps back from the rhetoric and looks at the reality of what is really happening across America’s schools.  He identifies some of the Talk, the Truth, and the Crucial Conversations that school leaders need to lead. Dr. Draper shares his TLC Formula that reframes the conversation to be more effective with every audience.  He engages the audience to face their own “Curse of Knowledge” and stop spreading the negativity that unwittingly fuels the urban myth of failing public schools.  Educators will feel supported, appreciated, and encouraged to engage in the crucial conversations required to build community support for public schools.
