Upper Grade Teachers - How can we equip our students with the 4 ”C”s in our classroom?

PRESENTER:   Mike Henning - Good Shepherd, West Allis

The 4 “C”s (collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and communication) are skills that are essential for our 21st century learners. How can we help our students develop these skills? This sectional will explore why these skills are important, and how you can help your students develop these necessary skills through classroom strategies that you can begin implementing next school year.
