R.E.A.L. Discussion in Your Classroom
Join Liza Garonzik, founder of R.E.A.L. Discussion and veteran independent school educator, to learn more about PD offered in partnership with NNSP this summer. R.E.A.L. is a discussion method that equips all students to find their voices, starting in academic conversation. Liza will make the case that humanities teachers deserve to be empowered with the tools they need to “demystify discussion” for today’s students. Participants will learn how the R.E.A.L. model combines best practices from DEI and CBL to make student-led discussion equitable and rigorous.
- How does R.E.A.L. provide students a tangible tool and shared routines to enter into academic conversations? How do these skills transfer beyond the classroom?
- How does R.E.A.L. support teachers as they structure their classrooms for challenging conversations about both rigorous content and real-world issues?
This Professional Development Session Addresses:
- the need to equip both students and faculty for rigorous and equitable discussion in our classrooms
- How to establish a classroom that allows for confident, competent, and structured discussion for all students.
