Conference Session Highlights: Proposition #3 Student Learning
Proposition #3-Teachers are responsible to managing and monitoring student learning. Knowing what our students know and don't know is where the true art of teaching comes out in a classroom setting.

Learn effective and practical ways to engage diverse learners in academic growth.
