Book Group: The Power of Moments by Chip Heath and Dan Heath, facilitated by Nicki Greninger
Wed, March 25, 9 am Pacific/1 pm Eastern

While human lives are endlessly variable, our most memorable positive moments are dominated by four elements: elevation, insight, pride, and connection. If we embrace these elements, we can conjure more moments that matter. What if we could design a program that we knew our students would remember twenty years later? Many of the defining moments in our lives are the result of accident or luck—but why would we leave our most meaningful, memorable moments to chance when we can create them? Engage in a lively conversation about how we, as educators, can shape these experiences for our learners and for ourselves.
