Teachers represent DASD in China

Eighth grade science teacher Jen Brandl and reading specialist Kathy Williams arrived in China yesterday to represent DASD at the 2nd Annual Global K-12 Educational Research Symposium on science and reading.  The symposium is hosted by the district’s Chinese sister school in Shijiazhuang.  The three-day symposium, which includes science and reading teachers from other sister schools around the world, uses a format similar to Ted Talks. Brandl and Williams  prepared a presentation on how, as teachers, they cultivate students’ abilities in science/reading.

In addition, high school science teachers, Meg McLaughlin and Bill Jameson, will also be traveling to Shijiazhuang in October to speak with a group of science teachers at the sister school about best practices in the teaching of science.


All four received scholarships from event organizers to pay for round trip airfare, hotel, and meals.
