Program: Nurturing the Well Balanced Student – 1/23/17

Nurturing the Well-balanced Student, Debunking the College Myth
Denise Pope, PhD

denise_head_shot_far_2012_optJoin us as Dr. Denise Pope, of Stanford University, examines the tension that students, teachers, and families often experience surrounding the culture of competition and offers research-based tools for creating a healthier community of learners. We all want our kids to do well in school and to master specific skills and concepts, but our largely singular focus on academic achievement has resulted in a lack of attention to other components of a successful life—the ability to be independent, adaptable, ethical, and engaged critical thinkers.

Who: Parents/guardians of students in grades 8-12, and for interested community members
When: Monday, January 23, 7:00-8:30 pm at the CCHS Auditorium
