Are your students working harder than your teachers? If not, they should.

Increasing student ownership builds autonomous critical thinkers, equipped with skills for the new economy. To get there, teachers need to inspire students to give as much energy and effort as they do. Chances are you tried student grouping strategies but did not get the results you need. So how do you get there?

This recorded edWebinar will show you how high functioning student-led academic teams can truly boost student ownership. The presentation explores:

  • what student ownership really means
  • the differences between grouping and teaming
  • strategies to increase student ownership
  • how academic teaming, a new instructional model focused on student-led teams, can get every student to own their learning

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to school and district leaders of kindergarten through high school grade levels.
