THE RON CLARK STORY
Ron Clark shares his personal experiences teaching in North Carolina, Harlem, and at the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta to illustrate his methods for insuring success for every child:
– Educators must use vibrant, innovative techniques to keep the attention of the students and make the curriculum come alive for them.
– It is important to insist on civility in the classroom to create an environment that is conducive to learning. Ron will talk about “The End of Molasses Classes” and “The Essential 55” – Innovative ways proven to improve America’s classroom as well as simple classroom rules and procedures that instill manners and respect.
– Educators must provide opportunities where students learn that the world is bigger than their own backyard and create a global awareness.
Ron’s presentation is animated, humorous, and leaves the audience inspired to make a difference.
