FUTURE READY KIDS

Raising the Bar on Critical Thinking

Tues. Feb 9, 7pm PT

Registration closes 2 hours before the event or when maximum registration is reached.

Colin Seale, educator, lawyer and author of Thinking Like a Lawyer, will cover powerful, but practical, strategies parents and educators can use to help students learn the habits and mindsets needed to apply critical thinking consistently. He addresses the need for developing critical inquiry skills so our children grow to be engaged students and involved citizens, leaders, and innovators. 

Free for member school parents and for all educators from member and non-member schools.
