Thursday, April 14, 2011: 9:30 AM-10:30 AM
107/108 (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
William R. Speer

We can’t make our students into seekers if we aren’t seekers ourselves. This practice-based presentation will explore the benefits of creating desirable difficulties to help students shake up loose thinking and construct new knowledge in ways that encourage transferring this knowledge to new situations. Exemplars will be explored and extended.

Presentation Format: Preservice and In-Service Session
Grade Band Audience: Preservice and Inservice, 6 to 8
