Critical Skills Institutes are truly an experience. In our Level 1 Institutes, educators are immersed in a Critical Skills Classroom. Participants explore problem-based, experiential, collaborative, and standards-driven learning. They examine how these components can be successfully utilized to target Critical Skills development within curriculum frameworks focusing on the role of the teacher in the areas of designing curriculum, guiding students, and assessing performance. They develop the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to build and maintain a dynamic and responsive classroom community.
