Join Us for Franczek's Book Talk with Emily Krone PhillipsSeptember 19, 2019
Please join us for a facilitated conversation with Emily Krone Phillips, author of "The Make-or-Break Year: Solving the Dropout Crisis One Ninth Grader at a Time." Emily's book chronicles the transformation that took place when Chicago's public high schools changed their practices in regard to grading, discipline, and the delivery of social/emotional and academic support to their students. Grounded in research on trauma-informed practices which is endorsed by administrators and the two major teachers' unions, Emily's description of the systemic changes that had a profound impact on student lives will inspire you as we kick off the 2019-2020 school year.
