Areas of Expertiseproblem-based learning, critical skills, collaborative learning, experiential learning, authentic assessment, and alternative models of civics education
My work with public schools over the past twelve years has been focused in the areas of (1) innovative teaching practices, specifically in the areas of problem-based learning; (2) curriculum development as defined in the areas of integrated learning and multi–disciplinary curricula; (3) alternative assessment models, including holistic grading and reporting schemes; and (4) the evolving roles of teachers as reflective practitioners, action researchers, student and peer coaches, curriculum builders, collaborative problem solvers and decision makers, and school leaders contributing to policy making and school governance.
Most recently, this work has advanced into formal and informal partnerships with schools in New Hampshire and Maine and some long-term collaborative projects with state departments and school consortia.
