So almost a year ago to the day, I had to opportunity to address about 50 superintendents in upstate New York, and when I posted here asking for suggestions as to what to say to them, I was amazed at the responses, as were the superintendents. Well, this Friday, I get the chance to address 120 middle school principals from New York City at a Middle Level Summit Conference, and I figure I’d see once again what the collective efforts of the group might yield. If nothing else, your thoughts and ideas and conversations are always a powerful model to the types of learning and connecting that can be done.
So I’ll ask again…if you had 75 minutes with this group, what one thing would you bring up/point to/challenge them with? What would be your most important message?
