Empower20: The Conference for Learning, Teaching, & Leading Together
2020 Conference on Teaching Excellence
Alliance Marc and Eva Stern Math and Science School (Stern MASS) is an open-enrollment charter school serving the East Los Angeles community since 2006. We educate 600 students in grades 9–12. All Stern MASS scholars take the required A-G course requirements needed to successfully apply to any University of California or California State University. All scholars also participate in a STEM Exhibition Night, a yearlong culminating project in math and science that answers a large and driving philosophical dilemma and encourages students to see the relationships between concepts and ideas. These projects adhere to Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards and integrate mastery learning, standards-based grading, academic content, collaboration, inquiry learning, and technology.
This interactive and hands on session will engage participants in the skills and capabilities required to understand and begin building a learning organization with a mission of advancing Whole Child/ Whole Community education. In the morning, participants will be introduced to Peter Senge’s five disciplines and begin utilizing them in their daily lives.
