Supported by a large body of scientific research, and proven effective in countless classrooms, schools, and districts, this revolutionary way to teach is transforming teaching and learning.

Come experience the power of Kagan Structures. See how easy it is to use teamwork and pairs to create a greater level of engagement than you imagined possible, even for your reluctant learners. We're not talking about group work. We're talking the real deal, and knowing the difference is the difference between engaging some and engaging all students. When we engage all students, they all learn more. And because the structures are so cooperative and interactive, they work wonders for students' social skill development. Students who work together get to know and like each other better which reduces discipline problems, bullying, and violence.

Come learn easy ways to use Kagan Structures as a part of every lesson, creating greater engagement, deeper understanding of the content, improved retention, and greater liking for class and content. Kagan will give you the Seven Keys to unlock the door to successful cooperative learning. If you want more fun in teaching, highly engaged students who love your classroom, and elevated test scores, this workshop is for you!

GOCSD appreciates Republic Schools allowing GOCSD Members to participate in this event.
