We are consistently talking about teaching skills that go beyond just literacy and numeracy.  But what does that look like? In this session we will explore concrete examples of critical thinking, communication, problem-solving, and collaboration at each grade level. You will walk away with grade-appropriate instructional strategies to foster these skills so that our students will be prepared for the future.

We cannot wait to speak to educators and presenters from all over at the 2023 NYCESPA Granite Anniversary Conference. Come say hi, stop for a chat, watch a demonstration, and even grab some of our free swag.
