Beginning Teacher Series: Rigor Redefined with Michael McDowell

Join other educators new to the profession for a day of learning.

The Beginning Teacher Series is specifically designed to support you in your first few years in the classroom with hands-on, easily applicable strategies.

Participants will:
  • Understand the connections among surface learning, deep learning, and transfer learning with elementary and secondary examples.
  • Learn various routines for each of the ten habits: the four learner quality habits and the six learning process habits.
  • Distinguish between declarative, procedural, and contextual knowledge.
