Student-Led Teaching? Really?

About this Webinar

Have you wondered if it’s possible for students to teach each other rigorous material through discussions they control? The Harkness approach does just that and leads to a deeper understanding of the content. Harkness goes further: it teaches students the importance of having open dialogue with other people about a variety of topics—a life-long skill set. In this webinar, educators will be introduced to the Harkness instructional model. What is it? Why use it? And what are its pillars? We will review the ways we practice it and provide resources for how a teacher or a school can implement Harkness and the necessary mindsets for students and teachers to effectively use Harkness in the classroom. This webinar is intended for teachers and school leaders who have an interest in incorporating this progressive teaching model within their classroom and/or their larger school community.
