FREE Virtual Webinar Series
Join us via Zoom for our FREE Virtual Webinar Series titled What Matters Most: Mindframes for Teaching and Leading hosted by CRAEA literacy consultants on the second Tuesday of each month at 4:00 p.m. In their book, 10 Mindframes for Visible Learning: Teaching for Success, Hattie and Zierer (2018) define ten mindframes that teachers and leaders must adopt in order to maximize impact on student learning. Each month, we’ll unpack a mindframe and provide highly practical strategies for implementing the research in your setting. The 10 mindframes will change the way you look at teaching, coaching, and leading schools.
