SAVE THE DATE: WORKSHOP ON CONTEXTUALIZED TEACHING AND

LEARNING!

May 7, 2010 10am – 5pm Preservation Park, Oakland California

The Faculty Inquiry Network (FIN) and the Career Ladders Project (CLP) will be hosting an all-day event to discuss contextualizing basic skills into Career Technical Education.

Designed for faculty already engaged in contextualizing their curriculum, this working session will provide updates on what’s happening around the state,

feature exemplary programs and offer faculty opportunity to learn about Inquiry as a way to deepen these practices. By combining the insights of practitioners who are actively contextualizing basic skills with Inquiry as an approach to professional development, we can build upon and sustain student success in our classrooms. It is our hope that this “convening” will initiate a larger conversation between practitioners and carve a route to a more closely integrated community.

There is no cost to participants. The session is underwritten by FIN and CLP. If you are interested in attending, please fill out the participant form on line at
