State of MindsThe Greater Houston area has become known nationwide for its innovative schools and initiatives – home of four Broad Prizes for urban education, and scores of valuable public-private partnerships. Yet a stubborn problem persists: An alarmingly low percentage of our public school students are achieving at levels that put them on track for success beyond high school. Our students have improved at taking tests, but how do we best prepare them for what their lives and careers will demand of them? How do we prepare our students to critically think, problem solve and be creative in a world that will demand resourcefulness and flexibility?In the 2017 Houston A+ Challenge Speaker Series, we are committed to celebrating the uniqueness of each learner and developing our capacity to serve each student as an individual. Join us to hear about current thinking, models and designs of teaching and learning that are already taking on this fundamental shift. You are invited to be our guest at this year’s series of free, public lectures. We hope you will join us for these though-provoking events, hosted by the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and sponsored by Chevron. View videos from past speakers
