Chair: Kent Johnson (Morningside Academy)

Dr. Kent Johnson would like to meet and greet you all after his talk and answer questions. He will also further describe his new book, The Morningside Model of Generative Instruction: Building A Bridge Between Skills and Inquiry Teaching, co-authored with long-time co-writer Dr. Elizabeth Street, as well as Morningside Academy Directors Andrew Kieta and Joanne Robbins. At over 500 pages, this comprehensive work provides a thorough overview of how best practices in behavioral education can bridge the seemingly endless divide between educators who build basic skills and those who aim to teach inquiry and thinking. This is a must-have for those interested in expanding from direct instruction and fluency-based instruction into higher order thinking and problem solving, as well as teachers looking to build solid foundations from which to continue inquiry-based approaches.
