March CLN Webinar with Rick Freehling

CLN’s monthly webinars are recorded for convenient viewing.   Rick Freehling (Critical Thinking & Reasoning/Economics & Globalization Teacher and Department Chair for the 21st Century Program at Harrison High School) will lead the conversation on creating and running a school devoted to learning for the 21st century

Now in its fifth year, Harrison’s 21st Cenury Program focuses on critical thinking and construction of knowledge in a “global” classroom. Topics the webinar will explore include:
  • assessment of skills and habits of mind;
  • re-thinking the “core” of a curriculum;
  • co-learning with students while facilitating their learning;
  • issues of creating a school-within-a-school and innovating in a model NCLB district
  • the learning outcomes from thinking and acting globally as well as locally.
