We now know that if we are to be more effective at reaching students we must first assess "where they are" before we plan our programs, and then use practices so each student can relate to the subject matter. A large survey conducted with school dropouts in a major Midwestern metro area revealed that every student agreed with the statement "No one in authority in my school cares about me." This can be ameliorated without spending an extra dime. It is not about NEW programs perhaps as much as it is about re-orienting our thinking, then practices, to match student needs and learning styles.
All meetings and sessions will be held at the Conference Center at Edgewater Beach Resort.
