* NOTE: The book group has reached maximum capacity. Please email Lando Carter if you wish to be placed on the waiting list. *


You are invited to join a group of colleagues who will be reading and discussing the book Powerful Teaching: Unleash the Science of Learning, by Pooja Agarwal and Patrice Bain.

The publisher’s website describes the book as follows:
Powerful Teaching: Unleash the Science of Learning empowers educators to harness rigorous research on how students learn and unleash it in their classrooms. In this book, cognitive scientist Pooja K. Agarwal, Ph.D., and veteran K–12 teacher Patrice M. Bain, Ed.S., decipher cognitive science research and illustrate ways to successfully apply the science of learning in classrooms settings.

With Powerful Teaching, you will:
* Develop a deep understanding of powerful teaching strategies based on the science of learning
* Gain insight from real-world examples of how evidence-based strategies are being implemented in a variety of academic settings
* Think critically about your current teaching practices from a research-based perspective

The group will be facilitated by Lando Carter and will meet three times via Zoom:
September 27, October 18, November 1
9-10 AM
Zoom meetings
Each participant will be provided with a copy of the book in advance of the first meeting.

Participation is limited; if you are interested in joining the group, please register as soon as possible.
