Friday 9/19 - 9:15am PTA General Membership Meeting and Presentation by Annie Ward

Creating Innovation in the Classroom and at Home:  Beyond the Common Core

Now that we have lived with the Common Core in the district for a few years, learn what is being done in the classroom to encourage student-centered inquiry, creativity,  and flexible thinking in conjunction with the standards.  Expanding on our thought-provoking conversation last year, Annie Ward, Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum & Instruction,  will be back at Murray to give a presentation and lead a roundtable discussion on reconciling a standards-based curriculum with encouraging innovation.  
Annie will discuss classroom initiatives that support this and show how the district continues to strive to support the whole child.  We will then brainstorm ideas how parents can reinforce these ideas at home.   For more background information, short readings and TED talks related to the discussion please click here.
