Bridging the Gap Between Knowledge and Production
Do you find that your child has incredible curiosity, a passion for a particular topic or the insatiable need to ask why, how, or what next?
Do you also find that when asked to demonstrate their knowledge through writing that your child struggles to provide the same level of tenacity, clarity, or depth of knowledge in their work?
Suggestions for providing structure for writing, and the use of technology to support production and enhance learning experiences for students will be covered, to help your child bridge the gap between knowledge and production.
Parents, teachers and counselors are encouraged to attend!
