Educating Girls Conference (Conference)

This workshop, co-sponsored by the National Coalition of Girls Schools and New York State Association of Independent Schools, will combine theory and practice to help schools improve the educational journey for girls in girls' schools and coed schools, thereby improving the experience for all learners.  


In the last several years, there has been a burgeoning of research looking at readiness from a neurological perspective. The defining question: Are there areas of the brain that are most malleable or plastic during a particular age range? The answer to that question has been gaining more and more clarity to the point that the research is providing critical direction in child development. There are really two magic decades, which span critical periods of brain development.

This conference is for everyone who works with girls at any grade grade level, in co-ed or single-sex schools. Understanding the full span of girls neurodevelopment will enhance how we structure curriculum, schedules, social activities basically everything we do in school.

After speaker Dr. JoAnn Deak gives an interactive presentation, there will be a one-hour period od concurrent workshops.
