It’s back-to-school season!  It's a time for fresh starts, new student relationships and a chance to try new things in the classroom.

Join educators from across the country for our August 17, 2017, Twitter chat at 7pm EST.

We'll be having guests joining is from school districts in Colorado, Maine, Michigan and Ohio, as well as our teaching and learning experts from KnowledgeWorks. We hope you can join the Twitter chat at #B2SChat.

Twitter chat questions

We will use the Q1, A1 format during #B2SChat. New to Twitter chats? Taking time to look at the questions beforehand can make the experience more enjoyable. That way you know what you want to share and can focus more on what other people are sharing versus what you need to type.

Q1. It’s a new school year! What will you do this year to create a strong school and classroom culture? #B2SChat

Q2. Student voice and choice are essential to #PersonalizedLearning. What are ways you give them choices? #B2SChat

Q3. #GrowthMindset for students gets a lot of air time. What about you – how do you (or will you!) display a growth mindset? #B2SChat

Q4. How are you incorporating #socialemotionallearning into your classroom? Why is that important for your learners? #B2SChat #SEL

Q5. How will you be celebrating student growth? Do the methods you use change based on age of students? #B2SChat

Q6. Learning communities extend beyond the walls of the classroom. How do you engage the #community in learning? #B2SChat

The Foundation for Excellence in Education’s 10th Annual National Summit on Education Reform will take place from November 29 to December 1, 2017, in Nashville, Tennessee. At this event, KnowledgeWorks Vice President of Communications and Marketing Cris Charbonneau  will serve as a panelist for a session called “What’s in a Name? -- Tap the Power of Messages that Work." As the sessions description says, "Word choice is crucial – not only so everyone is on the same page, but so we understand connotations associated with the terms. Recent research has found the messages and wording that resonate most with audiences today on reform policies. And more than choosing the right words, it’s also important to match them to the right audience and have credible storytellers to make the right words go even further."

The Summit is expected to attract more than 1,000 local, state and national policymakers from 47 states across the country – including legislators, chief state school officers and Governors’ policy directors, as well as state and national education advocacy organizations.
