Establish a Strong Foundation – Right from the start!

Setting a strong foundation at the start of a school year creates an aligned classroom where students are clear on how to interact effectively with one another. A strong foundation includes a common vision of what success looks like and clearly defined procedures, agreements, expectations, values, and principles.

Establish a Strong Foundation … and have a great start to your school year!

The first few weeks set the tone for the semester. When our expectations are overt, clear and consistent everyone feels safe and supported ready to tackle the tasks at hand. This is true for students and staff. During this webinar you’ll learn how to involve and align a classroom, school and district through the creation of a compelling vision, purpose, expectations, values, and principles. 

Join Mark Reardon, QL’s Chief Learning Officer and former teacher and principal, and grasp ways to ensure you have a great start this school year.

Excellence in Teaching and Learning: The Quantum Learning System
By Barbara K. Given and Bobbi DePorter
 It is really rewarding to see practical approaches to the crucial topic of education using the things that we have learned about memory and forming a bridge between psychology and education, that in the UK at least, has been neglected for far too long.
—Alan Baddeley, PhD, author, Memory
The book is both a superb source for better teaching tools and a primer on the Quantum Learning (SuperCamp) system. The book is practical, readable and well cited. I rate it a two thumbs up!
—Eric Jensen, PhD, BrighterBrain Bulletin 

A great book. It looks wonderful and the content is spectacular.
 —John Hattie, PhD, author, Visible Learning

Wishing you a great start to your school year!
