Denise Pope, Ph.D.  |  Senior Lecturer, Stanford Graduate School of Education; Co-Founder, Challenge Success

Teaching for Healthy, Engaged Students in a Fast-paced World
In a high-stakes, high-pressure culture, parent and school expectations may have unintentional but damaging effects on student well-being and engagement with learning. This presentation examines the latest research on academic pressure and the tension that parents, students, and teachers often experience over issues such as homework, grades, college admissions, and the culture of competition. Dr. Pope will offer concrete strategies and tools for creating a healthier and more productive school environment without sacrificing achievement.
