The Power of Student Teams

Michael Toth is the founder and CEO of Learning Sciences International. He’s on a mission to end poverty using education as the equalizer by increasing academic rigor and student agency to ensure classroom equity. He joins host Mike Palmer in a conversation about revamping current K12 instructional practices as detailed in his multi award-winning book, The Power of Student Teams.

Listen in to learn how great teaching involves letting go and allowing students to lead. We also discuss how giving students agency, particularly in traditionally underserved schools, is so critical to driving successful turnarounds across the country.

It’s a thought-provoking conversation you don’t want to miss.
