Teaching is changing and Chalkbeat on Tuesday will sponsor a conversation about how and why the changes are taking place, and it means for the future of educating Indiana’s children.
From 5 to 7 p.m. at the Central Library a discussion aimed at teachers will feature Chalkbeat CEO Elizabeth Green, author of the New York Times bestseller “Building a Better Teacher.” Green’s presentation will kick off an interactive conversation. She will be joined by Indiana University School of Education Dean Gerardo M. González and a panel of educators to talk and take audience questions. The conversation will be followed by a cocktail hour.
The event is co-sponsored by Chalkbeat, Teach Plus, WFYI and the Indianapolis Public Library. For more information or to RSVP, go here.
Live events built around critical issues in education are a new initiative for Chalkbeat Indiana this year. In October, Chalkbeat sponsored the only discussion of the issues facing Indianapolis Public Schools that included all 10 candidates for school board. Last month, Chalkbeat’s Scott Elliott moderated a panel that discussed issues of standardized testing in Indiana. Both of those events also included WFYI and the Indianapolis Public Library as co-sponsors.
The event is free and open to the public.
