Reimagining High School for All
Our conventional approach to high school curriculum is rooted in a series of courses that were developed long before “the science of learning” and our current understanding of neuroscience were able to influence their design. This talk will reimagine the ways in which our core curriculum can be modernized to meet the needs of this new era. The task at hand is to ensure that an innovative new model becomes the norm so that all students can benefit from a modernized high school experience.
