Continue Your Summer Learning

I am thrilled to be doing 2 webinars for SimpleK12 this summer.  if you are unfamiliar with these webinars I can tell you they are pretty amazing.  First of all, they are free (!) and you get to ask the presenter as many questions as you want within the time limit.  I have taken part in several of these and love the 30 minute format, as well as how easy it is.

I get to discuss two things that are very near to my heart; no homework and student-led conferences.

To Homework or Not to Homework
An ongoing debate rages among many educators over whether or not homework is truly necessary in today’s classrooms. In this webinar, Pernille Ripp discusses her own journey away from homework the ups and downs of helping parents understand, as well as how to still promote time-management, responsibility, and practice. This webinar is meant for teachers who want to move away from homework or who are curious about the journey, as well as for parents who would like to support their student in their quest to be homework free.

Promote Student Ownership of Goals and Learning with Student-led Conferences
How would you like your students to take ownership of their goals, their paths, and their learning? You can help them to accomplish this by doing student-led conferences. While it may sound scary to turn over ownership of this important time to students the results are in – student-led conferences promote ownership and lead to deeper learning conversations. In this webinar, join Pernille Ripp as she discusses why student-led conferences are beneficial and provides suggestions and tips for how to conduct them. Forms will be shared to help students prepare for them, and various modifications to their format will be discussed.
