Success for All –

Believing All Children

Can Learn

 

 

Our February show will feature Dr. Robert (Bob) Slavin, co-founder of Success For All.  Success for All grew out of a program of research and development that started with basic research on cooperative-learning strategies. By 1980, Bob’s group at Johns Hopkins University had learned how to harness the power of kids working with kids by structuring methods in which groups could succeed only if all members had mastered the academic material they were studying.  In 1987, along with Nancy Madden, Bob founded SFA.  Bob is currently Director of the Center for Research and Reform in Education at Johns Hopkins University, part-time Professor at the Institute for Effective Education at the University of York (England), and Chairman of the Success for All Foundation.  Our 2nd guest will be a principal at one of SFA’s outstanding schools.

Join us for this 2nd in our series of school improvement initiatives at 2pmEST on February 12!
