As July comes to a close and schools gear up for the coming year, we’re seeing an uptick in Fall Forum registrations. Thanks to all of you who have secured your spot for Fall Forum 2016, the last of our 32 years of conversations among friends.
Among Fall Forum 2016’s expected highlights:
→ Educator- and student-led workshops aligned to five content strands: school design, student voice, classroom practices, community connections, and leadership/professional development
→ Panels and speakers on topics including CES history, equity, progressive education’s future, the #educolor movement
→ Policy forum led by Dr. Linda Darling-Hammond examining promising state assessment initiatives
→ Analysis of 2016 election results’ impact on education and young people
→ Storytelling sessions highlighting personal stories of the journey of CES and the impact of the Common Principles
→ Open networking opportunities and small group sessions with national thought leaders
→ Screening of the film Most Likely to Succeed followed by discussion with filmmakers, High Tech High educators, and national leaders
→ Progressive Ed Bookstore featuring the core CES collection of publications, along with book signings with CES authors
Join us for this historic gathering as we reflect on the work of the Coalition of Essential Schools, the contributions of Ted Sizer and generations of CES educators, and the future of schools led by the questions and passions of students and teachers.
