The 2010 National Teacher of the Year will be the speaker at an upcoming Door County Reading Council presentation. Sarah Brown Wessling from Des Moines, Iowa will be featured at Stone Harbor Resort on February 23 with a program called “Creating Student-Centered Conversations and Discussions”. Wessling, a 17 year veteran of the high school English classroom, says the approach is to get instructors to think about designing learning experiences for students rather than the teacher.
Wessling, Laureate Emeritus for the non-profit Teaching Channel, has given over 250 talks and workshops in 39 different states as well as internationally. She has taught courses ranging from at-risk to Advanced Placement. The “Creating Student-Centered Conversations and Discussions” presentation will be from 5:00 – 7:00 pm on Thursday, February 23 at the Stone Harbor Resort and Conference Center with doors opening at 4:30 pm.
