[ a different approach MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE.]



The annual Howard Institute full day summer workshop will be on Monday June 5th at The Howard School. This year's workshop theme is Tools of engagement: Strategies to reconnect the “unmotivated” learner. We are thrilled to have Dr. Julie Washington, Professor Program Director in Communication Sciences and Disorders at Georgia State University, as our keynote speaker. The workshop will offer multiple breakout sessions after the keynote, including a chance for teachers to work together and with our Howard School faculty and staff to re-conceptualize lessons that participants bring in from the past school year that were not as engaging as was hoped. Registration details coming soon...stay tuned!

The mission of The Howard Institute is to share knowledge in a collaborative manner that melds research and practice. Through our summer offerings, consulting and customized classes, The Howard Institute shares best practices with the greater Atlanta education community, which impacts students throughout the area. To date, 23 area schools have participated in our summer offerings, and have given very positive feedback!

Our interactive workshops are designed for all teachers interested in responding to current research in neuroscience, executive functions, assistive technology, mathematics and language acquisition. Participants work collaboratively with their fellow participants to interpret and apply the content to their own lessons and units, and leave with materials they can use immediately in their classes.
