Topic --- What if? Toward Encouraging and Taking Beautiful Risks

Please join us for our annual luncheon with guest speaker Dr. Ronald Beghetto who will address creativity in the classroom and encouraging divergent thinking.

What if we supported new ways of thinking and action in schools and classrooms? I mean really supported it. Here are a few things we might expect to see and hear. We would see ourselves viewing uncertainty as an opportunity for creative thought and action. We would also see ourselves modeling an unshakeable sense of possibility thinking. And hear a shift in our language moving away from "This is the way it is" and toward "How could or should it be different?" In short, we would see ourselves and our students taking beautiful risks. In this talk, Dr. Beghetto will explore ways to help young people respond creatively to the uncertainty they face in learning and life.
