Directions 2018 is looking for high quality presenters to share their insight from the field. If you have a message to share or a program to celebrate, we hope you will apply to present a breakout session to our audience on either June 19 or 20, 2018. Proposals should be informative, relevant, encourage opportunities for engagement, and/or demonstrate application. They can be presentations, demonstrations, workshops, discussions, or any other format. The Planning Committee is currently seeking proposals for one- or two-hour sessions in the following strands:
Trauma-Informed Schools / ACES Trauma knows no boundaries and does not discriminate. Inclusive Learning / Inclusive Leadership How can we ensure that schools recognize everyone? Homelessness It's more than just a law. Building Communities & Connections Keeping your classroom and school's narrative authentic. Social Media How can schools and students best leverage Social Media to communicate their message and build their brand?
NEW in 2018! In an effort to maximize the learning experience for attendees and to help support individuals who want to implement new ideas they learned at Directions, we are partnering with TeachIllinois and IL ASCD to extend some of our sessions virtually beyond the Conference. This is optional and voluntary. There are no set rules for this; we will collaborate with you individually after your acceptance to determine the best fit for everyone involved.
