- husband, father, writer, teacher, coach of teachers/principals, and humorous and engaging speaker - spoke on the evening of October 24, 2017.
The evening's keynote address was “Sure Footing in a Shaky World: Best Practices in Today’s Classrooms that Stand the Test of Time”
during which the advanced-age version of Rick Wormeli in the year 2075 A.D. travels through a time vortex back to the current year. As his older and younger selves, Rick reminisces on the teaching and learning practices of today that will stand the test of time through to his contemporary world in 2075. With wigged out hair and an ever young and creative mind, Rick rifts on educational salience.
As part of this evening, attendees had the opportunity to participate in breakout sessions facilitated by Cannon School leaders to engage in conversations about mission-aligned issues around giving learners feedback for learning, our deeper look at curriculum, and broad conversations around student growth.
