About the Presenter(s):
Geri Lorway, Thinking 101

Geri Lorway does not promote or support “discovery learning”. She promotes and supports teaching children how to think, how to reason and problem solve, how to comprehend and communicate both written and oral language in grade appropriate ways, how to use their visual spatial skills to learn, recall and apply FACTS.

The basics that form the foundation for success with Readin’, Ritin’ and ‘Rithmetic  all connect when we teach kids to THINK as they learn.

Geri's career in education spans more than 35 years. She has taught in single & multi grade classrooms, been a principal, a District Principal, a District Consultant and currently continue as a University Professor, action researcher,  coach and mentor to teachers, parents and students across Western Canada. As she works in classrooms across the province, her knowledge and understanding evolves. Teaching is change because learning is change.

Catering is not prepared in a nut/gluten-free environment.
