The NSELC, in partnership with the Rutherford Learning Group, is pleased to offer an exciting professional learning opportunity for P-12 teachers and educational leaders. The two day conference will focus on strategies for high performance teaching that enhance student learning. Participants will be introduced to patterns of skillful instruction. They will become familiar with the 23 themes of teaching that enable teachers to create classrooms with high levels of student engagement, effort, clarity, thinking, performance, and success. Conference participants will recognize the themes in their own teaching, determine their skills and strengths, and enhance their practice.
