Learning is a journey, and we are children's guides. Before we set off, we must choose where we are headed. What do we want them to see, to feel? These journeys are the stuff they will use to build their souls and to wire their minds. An additional topic will be "Boys will be Boys," which will introduce proven strategies and learning environment modifications to engage boys and close the growing achievement gap between boys and girls.
