We’re back at the Annual Conference for Middle Level Education (AMLE)—and we’re coming with author, educator and recipient of the 2013 Teachers’ Choice Award, Dr. Katherine McKnight!

Last year, we learned a lot from the conference and Katie’s session. In our previous interview with Katie, she told us about how she got started as a teacher in Chicago and her journey to figure out how she could further help her students to really understand what they were learning about.

Now, she’s bringing back what she’s learned to share it will all of you!

3 ways to learn about bringing experiential education to life:

Active Learning and Improv in the Classroom: Boosting Skills and Content Learning

Join us on Friday, November 7th from 2:30 p.m. – 3:45 p.m. in Delta Island E.

In this session, Katie will lead a discussion about creativity in the classroom, specifically:

– How do improvisation and active learning develop student skills and content knowledge?

– How can you use active strategies and exercises to boost student learning in the classroom?

Experiential Education Cocktail Hour

After Katie’s Friday session, join us at 5:30 p.m. at Ryman Studio F and G  at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center.

At our experiential education cocktail hour, you can learn more about EF’s latest educational opportunities over food, conversation and drinks. Come on by and meet fellow educators and EF Explore America staff.
