Most Likely to Succeed

Guess what?   We’ve got an early Christmas present for our IMLA members!

We will be hosting three separate screenings of the film Most Likely to Succeed.  If you haven’t seen the film, it’s a view of the past and present of the public school system and offers a view of the future of education.

  • Thursday, February 11 – from 7 – 8:30pm (general public)
  • Friday February 12 – from 5 – 6:30pm  (general public & teachers)
  • Saturday February 13 – from  11-12:30pm (conference attendees only)

Check out the trailer.

Cynthia Tobias: “Straight to the Source”

We thought we’d share another video from our 2015 Keynote Speaker Cynthia Tobias, who reminds us that we can’t simply assume why our students make the choices they make; if we really want to get inside the brains of our middle schoolers, we need to go straight to the source.
