Feeling Connected
  Location: SS Ballroom F
  Date: Wednesday, Aug.3
  Time: 9:20 AM -9:30 AM
  Author: James Overhiser, Cornell University
  Co-Author(s): None
  Abstract: A sense of feeling connected is part of being human. This is especially true for a young teacher. Involving pre-service and freshman teachers in content-specific networks early in their career helps them understand the connections that can be made to support their work in the classroom. This can also remove the anonymity that teachers work under and place them in a cooperative group of professional development. Doing this early in the career of a teacher will help them see the importance of such networking and teach them the responsibility of moving into leadership roles to keep the network active and viable.
