Virtual Session: 10AM-Noon EST

Heidi Hayes Jacobs will lead this featured workshop. Take a hard look at our overburdened, dated curricular practices and learn a better way –one built on the power of narrative. 

The storyboard approach casts students as the heroes of the learning journey. Instead of passive recipients, they become protagonists, actively engaged in exploring new ideas, solving problems, finding connections, enlisting allies, and acquiring new skills and understandings to apply to both present and future challenges.
