Make plans now to join us in February at our in-person Institutes!

Are you looking for ways to enhance the quality of instruction in your school or classroom this year? Consider joining the National Paideia Center for one of the following professional learning institutes that we are offering in New Orleans, LA, on February 23-24, 2023. An investment of your time and energy now will pay dividends in student learning both this year and in years to come. 

Introduction to Paideia Seminar:
Learn the key components for facilitating Paideia Seminar, which helps advance students' ability to think conceptually and communicate collaboratively. This two-day course is designed for new practitioners and focuses on an integrated literacy cycle of reading, writing, speaking, listening, and thinking. Participants will study each component of the seminar cycle, develop plans for implementation, and practice facilitating Paideia Seminar.

Introduction to Paideia Coached Project:
Join us for an in-depth introduction to the Paideia Coached Project, where you will learn how to create authentic units of student work and study. The Paideia Coached Project is the most powerful kind of project-based learning because it is focused on ideas and values, features Paideia Seminars as an integral ingredient, and leads to a student product or performance intended for an authentic audience outside the classroom. The Paideia Project fully integrates seminar dialogue into the life of the classroom, while simultaneously inspiring students to produce their best work in response to the curriculum. During this Institute, participants will have the opportunity to explore the elements of the Paideia Project and begin to plan a project ideally suited to their classroom or school.

Venue: Kehoe-France School Southshore, which is convenient to both the airport and the French Quarter.
