 ==============================================       
 
 
  A one-day Professional Learning Workshop for Middle and High school
 Teachers.
 
 A professional training for using Concept Mapping as a tool for
 meaningful learning and helping students learn how to learn.
  
  A unique opportunity to meet Professor Joseph Novak of Cornell
 University- the creator of Concept Maps and the author of the theory
 of Meaningful Learning - and his followers who are using Concept Maps
 in everyday classroom environment (as well as gain some
 re-certification hours). Please join us this summer at Boston
 University on August 23d.
  
   Research proves that using Concept Maps facilitates critical
 thinking, deepens understanding and assists learners in developing a
 self appraisal of their own thinking process (please, visit
 sciencetalk.us for some links).
  
   The workshop will be lead by Prof. Novak and James Gorman (an
 experienced teacher and one of many followers of Professor Novak),
 and will provide participants with a hands-on experience of using
 Concept Maps and Concept Mapping Tool.
  
   The ultimate goal of this workshop is to build a community of
 educators who are actively using concept maps and sharing their
 experiences with each other. 
 
    This Professional Learning Workshop is free (!), participants will
 be provided with materials they can immediately use in the classrooms
 and will be trained in using the materials. Professional Development
 Credit is available.
 
    The training will be held at Boston University, 590 Commonwealth
 Ave, room B23; 9 am . 4 pm (with a lunch break). Participants
 registered before July 25th will be provided with a free parking
 pass.
