Community Speaker Series- “Let’s Talk About Education”

The Faculty of Education is pleased to announce a new initiative, a Community Speaker Series entitled “Let’s Talk About Education.” The idea behind the talks is centred around hot topics in education that will engage the general public – anyone who has a vested interest in education and the school system. The talks are therefore designed to be interactive and/or facilitate discussion.

The first talk:

“I don’t like math … I love it! How to get kids and parents excited about math.”

Dr. George Gadanidis
Faculty of Education

Wednesday, November 21st
7:00pm
Community Room
(Room 1139, Faculty of Education)

 Admission and parking are free; refreshments will be provided.

Please plan to attend, to support your colleague and the Faculty in this new initiative. Please also provide assistance in spreading the word.  Please forward the information to anyone you feel may be interested.

Additional information about the talk:
Collaborating with teachers in elementary school classrooms, Gadanidis has developed strategies that produce real results. Parent feedback: “It’s amazing that they’re learning this math in grade 3. I thought she couldn’t do it but she really did. I hope you give more homework like this.” Student feedback: “I don’t like math anymore, I love it!”

Take-home material will be provided.
