The Interactive Classroom Professional Development Sessions Description Page

The Interactive Classroom
The Interactive Classroom is a Professional Development series created to address the differentiated needs of students based on Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligences Theory.  While many schools are going 1:1 in the classroom, our students need more and more interactive lessons that will allow them to become more actively engaged in their own learning. My strategies will help the new, or even experienced, teacher reach more students and keep all students excited to learn!  More importantly, it will open the door for more students to participate in classroom activities, allowing greater success for all and less room for any to fall through the cracks.
