Passionate teachers produce passionate learners. Through a variety of resources, research, and first hand experience, learn how to bring your lessons to life in the classroom. Session participants will explore academic research on active student engagement focused on what it looks like, how to achieve it, and why it is important to the process of learning. Each and every one of us has the God-given ability to produce powerful and memorable lessons. This session is meant to inspire you to actively plan and make this happen in your own classroom!
