General Meeting PTSA October 4, 2017 at 6:30 Choir Room- Special Guest

6:30 pm, Choir Room

Special Guest: Mr. Bryan Cooley, Lowell Physics Teacher


Getting the Most Out of the Classroom Experience

Last year the PTSA invited a renowned speaker, Alfie Kohn, author of fourteen books on education and parenting, to discuss with parents, teachers, and students the pros and cons of our educational system’s fixation on grades. Alfie discussed homework strategies but also focused on ways to make the classroom experience an exciting place to learn. After Mr. Kohn’s talk, Mr. Bryan Cooley decided to experiment with letting students select their own grades. In this presentation, Mr. Cooley will share with our community his findings from that semester and the effects he witnessed on learning.


The General meeting will be before and after Bryan Cooley's talk and Q and A.
