STEM Webinar Series - Part 2 of a 3-Part Series

December 5, 2017
4pm or 7pm EST

STEM provides a wonderful opportunity to organize and integrate a significant part of the curriculum. The multi-year and cross-disciplinary nature of STEM makes it ideal for spiraling the curriculum from grade to grade, increasing depth and understanding along the way.

On the other hand, without thoroughly understanding what STEM is, there is a significant danger of “softening” the science and math component of the curriculum and producing a hodgepodge of experiences lacking clear intellectual grounding and cognitive direction.
In this FREE three-part webinar series attendees will learn:

  • What STEM is and What it Isn’t
  • Cognitive spiraling and levels of instruction in a STEM educational model
  • Best-practices to building the STEM Curriculum
  • How to assess the STEM curriculum
  • Using STEM as a community endeavor
  • Using STEM as a basis for lifelong learning

Focused Marketing to Grow Enrollment

January 9, 2017
1pm EST

In this innovative approach to marketing planning and execution, we address the constraints experienced by school leaders and admissions directors.  Specifically, the management of multiple critical responsibilities and the resulting prioritization and focus challenges.

In this highly interactive session, we hyper-focus on key aspects of marketing planning. Participants will be guided through the planning process, resulting in a scalable marketing plan that can be immediately implemented to drive your enrollment growth efforts throughout the year.

While this session will be beneficial to many admissions leadership roles, in this edition, we will focus strictly on strategy for elementary and early learning organizations.

Live attendees will have a chance to win a $500 grant for their school!

Introduction to Singing and Conducting Gregorian Chant

Building on these basics, conductors will progress through a series of basic gestures and exercises, culminating in the conducting of a Kyrie by the end of the session.
