Event Details

Sweating the Soft Stuff:

Qualities Needed for Learning and How to Nurture Them


New research—in brain science, social science and economics—makes a compelling case that these critical qualities, and even intelligence itself, can be developed—at school as well as at home. A new review by the University of Chicago Consortium on Chicago School Research concurs.

Forum #2: What Schools Can Do

Speaker:

Camille Farrington, Research associate (assistant professor), University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration (SSA) and Consortium on Chicago School Research.

Camille Farrington is the lead author of the Consortium’s recent report, “Teaching Adolescents to Become Learners,” which challenges the notion that hard work and effort are character traits of individual students and suggests instead that they depend, in large part, on instructional and contextual factors in the classroom.


Respondents:

Mary Ann Pitcher, co-director, Network for College Success, a partnership between SSA and the Chicago Public Schools that promotes whole-school improvement.

Elizabeth Dozier, principal, Fenger High School, a turn-around school in the Roseland neighborhood.

Sean Stalling, chief of schools, South Side Network, Chicago Public Schools, and the former principal of Manley High School.
