CES Students Talk About Deeper Learning
Chatham Elementary School Community Read
In Search of Deeper Learning: The Quest to Remake the American High School
By Jal Mehta and Sarah Fine
Join in a community read with a focus on education!
Chatham Elementary School and Monomoy Regional School District are collaborating with local organizations to offer a community read focused on education, and the guiding question, “What would it take to transform schools into modern organizations capable of supporting deep learning for all?” As part of its work with deeper learning, Chatham Elementary educators, in conjunction with the Massachusetts Department of Education’s Kaleidoscope Deeper Learning Collective and New Pedagogies for Deep Learning Global Partnership, have been studying and implementing a variety of tools and strategies to encourage deep, long-lasting learning by students. CES is inviting the community to join in this learning, and to investigate what this means for our schools and our districts at large via book discussions and a presentation from education expert, Dr. Jal Mehta, who authored In Search of Deeper Learning: The Quest to Remake the American High School. There are two facets: all community read book discussion groups and a culminating event with the author.
Book discussion groups - March-April 2021
The community read small groups will meet on a variety of days and times, remotely, in conjunction with libraries and other organizations, including Chatham Elementary School. The groups will plan to meet twice this spring to discuss the book.
Presentation and Discussion with Dr. Mehta - April 28, 2021
On April 28, 2020 at 6:30 p.m., Dr. Mehta will join the community for an in-depth and interactive discussion of his book, In Search of Deeper Learning. This event will be open to the public and attendees do not need to have participated in the book discussion groups to participate in this event.
