Lesson Design to Maximize Learning and Minimize Disruption

December 11, 2017 @ 9:20 am - 10:50 am

Shira Loewenstein, Director of Leadership Development at Prizmah: Center for Jewish Day Schools

In this workshop we will look at various ways to structure an upper school classroom to ensure that we are spending the maximum amount of time teaching and the students are learning. We will talk about common disruptions and how to minimize them in your classroom. Teachers should bring a lesson plan that they would like to work on developing to this workshop.
