RCC Conference Room, 26 Trowbridge St., Cambridge MA.

As teachers, we often face students that are unable to follow our classes. What is worse, when teaching science there are these gender and racial gaps when performing that are not due to the student capabilities, and that we need to learn how to overcome. But do not despair! There are strategies to engage the whole classroom. Come to this seminar to learn about Inclusive teaching to close these gaps, and innovative teaching to increase the overall performance of all your pupils.
