Jonathan E. Martin on Building the 21st Century School
Jonathan E. Martin, Head of School at St. Gregory College Preparatory School in Tucson, Arizona joined us to reflect on his first year. We discussed how Tony Wagner's Global Achievement Gap has framed the work he is doing with his faculty. Jonathan led us through a number of assessments that St. Gregory is using to measure how collaborative, creative, and engaged his students are at St. Gregory. Interested in the 21st Century School, this is definitely one version!
What a way to close out another another great year of podcasting.
Thanks to everyone for listening. We'll see you all in September.
