"We're not preparing students to take a test or to earn a diploma. We're preparing them to be independent, successful, resilient, resourceful human beings."
Giving students the power of autonomy can be one of the most important skills you'll ever teach. Listen in as CEO of engage2learn Shannon Buerk and Wendy Amato discuss how to use goal-setting to both allow students to take control of their own learning and to promote equity in every classroom.
Wendy Amato earned her Master’s in Education and PhD in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Virginia. She holds an MBA from James Madison University. Wendy began teaching in 1991, has served as a Middle School Administrator, and still teaches at UVA’s School of Education. She has delivered teacher professional development workshops and student leadership workshops in the US and internationally. Wendy and her family live near Charlottesville, Virginia.
