From 2e Newsletter

A PRESS RELEASE alerted us to an online event today (Thursday, 9/5) featuring Rafe Esquith, famous as the teacher in Room 56 at Hobart Elementary School in Los Angeles for immersing his students in Shakespeare and theater and motivating the students to high achievement education-wise. He says he has no use for high-stakes, standardized tests. Today's 7pm (ET) event at WizIQ is titled "Real Talk for Real Teachers" -- but we're betting parents might find it of interest as well. Find out more at www.wiziq.com/online-class/1365406-real-talk-for-real-teachers-with-rafe-esquith. See a TED talk by Esquith (& student performances) at YouTube (www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYnkRvYGnEk).
