What is included at the retreat?
You will be provided with a free copy of 'Concept-Based Curriculum and Instruction for the Thinking Classroom' by Erickson, Lanning and French and 'Concept-Based Inquiry in Action' by Marschall and French.
We'll be providing morning tea and lunch and continuous tea and coffee.
Additionally, dinner on Thursday night is included at one of Porto's best restaurants Graham's Port Wine Lodge - Vinum.
What do I need to bring?
You will need to bring a laptop computer with access to google drive. You will spend a significant amount to time working on designing your own unit so it would be difficult to do this from a phone or tablet without a keyboard.
Please make sure you have access to your curriculum documents and unit planners for the units you are currently teaching (if you can access them online you do not need to bring printed copies).
Will the retreat be available through a live stream?
No - this event is designed for people to be physically in the room and will not be recorded or available outside of the event.
